But Packwood, 22, doesn’t stand out solely because he is white or has maintained a 4.0 grade point average. For those who don’t know him, what is surprising is that a Rhodes Scholar finalist turned down a full scholarship to Columbia University to attend the all-black men’s university.
This was all over the local news stations here in Atlanta, the home of Martin Luther King, Jr. Some people were upset…let me rephrase that…some black people were upset. No surprise there but if you’re one of those who is upset – you just need to go ahead and get over yourselves…for real!!
For the most part, Packwood says the experience among his Morehouse brethren has been overwhelmingly good – with the exception of a few negative comments.
“One guy came up to me and told me — he didn’t like the fact that I was here,” recalls Packwood. “He absolutely didn’t like the fact that I dated black women.” [Source] Pleas

Dont’ get upset because this fine ass young man came on “your” yard, outperformed you in the classroom, AND minimized the pool of black women from which you had your pick! HATER!!! Had you been on your game this wouldn’t have phased you. More importantly, being there at Morehouse you should be quite familiar with the teachings and preachings of MLK, Jr. Remember that part about being judged on the “content of your character and not the color of your skin”? What, does that only apply to black people? Hmm, how convenient.
Congratulations Joshua “sexy fine-ass, intelligent, white MOREhouse Man” Packwood!!
