A Texas nonprofit group has decided to give scholarships exclusively to white men because they are supposedly the victims of discrimination.
The group, Former Majority Association for Equality (FMAE), believes that whites feel “excluded” and “left out” when they apply to college and for financial aid. Their goal is to award a $500 scholarship to five Caucasian male students with over a 3.0 grade point average.
According to the FMAE website, they are providing aid “to those that have found the scholarship application process difficult because they do not fit into certain categories or any ethnic group.” Applicants should be Caucasian males who “demonstrate a commitment to education” and “substantiate financial need.”
As there are definitely plenty of college scholarships available that require the prospective student to be a minority, do you think it’s racist to have scholarships that are only available to white students as well? Let’s discuss.
