From what I see, some of it depends on the practice in different areas of the country. In my state, WI, it seems the CCs, called tech schools till just recently, are seen as a less prestigious option. My kids would not have considered going. But I think it would have been a fine option educationally speaking. Our local CC has great instructors and smaller class size than the big universities, as well as classes designed to mesh with the big university that will give you the BS/BA. There are no TAs, and instructors are there to really each, rather than research. There are plenty of smart folks at our local CC, but socioeconomically more diverse than you'd find starting at a 4 year school, and there is certainly a mix with those who find college challenging.
When young, I lived in CA and AZ, where the CC system was where most people headed right after HS. The local CC had great instructors, and an ambitious student body headed to the UCs and higher ranked CSU schools. When I transfered to a CSU school, I was disappointed, as it was far less intellectually stimulating than my CC.
A friend from my CA hometown was talking with me about our mutual CC experience. She teaches at the U here, and says she never talks about starting at a CC among Wisconsin colleagues, as they don't get it. Geographic difference.
So I'd say, go for it, if the social life issues don't matter to you, as mentioned by mikemac above, and you can stick to your goal of top notch grades. Saving money for med school is a fine goal, and you'll be better prepared for the actual practice of medicine if exposed to a diversity of people and life situations early on.
Regarding white male and scholarships-you don't know till you've tried, and it really depends on what you're looking for in a four year school.
