Scholarships: For Whites Only, Others Need Not Apply!!

 

A new Texas non-profit plans to extend scholarship support to those they say are under supported in higher education: white men.
The group, called the Former Majority Association for Equality, was formed by Texas State University student Colby Bohannan and others and hopes to provide four $500 scholarships to white men by July (donations are being accepted via the group's website).

 

The group's mission statement says that it wants to "provide monetary aid to those that have found the scholarship application process difficult because they do not fit into certain categories or any ethnic group."
Bohannan told Reuters that the group's goal "is actually just to help students."
"We are not trying to jump on any political agenda or bandwagon," he said.

 

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Bohannan is in fact in the minority in Texas, where non-Hispanic whites compose less than half the populace.
Bohannan told the Statesman that he felt "excluded" when applying for college scholarships, many of which target minorities.

I have no problem with this either. If they are going to have scholarships for black kids it's only fair that they have them for white kids too. as long as it don't come out of my pocket.
