    Default White Men Only Scholarship to be Offered

    Makes one really think about who is a minority these days, and there is a valid point here.....in some communities, there are many low income white students who would benefit from a education and need support to get one. In my area, white males are not a minority....far from it, but in other areas, white males DO make up the minority, and so , how should they be treated?

    Statistically whites will be a minority in the United States in my lifetime, yet white men will still be at the top of the economic ladder so it will be interesting to see how society adjusts.

    but I have to wonder about the quote in the last line of this article


    (Reuters) - Members of a new Texas association are starting a college scholarship program for a group of students they say do not have as many scholarship options as others -- white men.

    Colby Bohannan, a student at Texas State University in San Marcos, and some friends have formed the non-profit Former Majority Association for Equality, which will provide the scholarships. The idea was that there are many scholarships geared toward helping minorities and women attend college, and there are also scholarships for people from certain religions or from certain families. But Bohannan thought his demographic group was missing.

    "We know that we're going to be receiving some vicious attacks, from people claiming that we are racists, or promoting some bigotry-filled agenda," Bohannan said on Thursday.

    Starting this summer, the association plans to provide as many as five $500 scholarships to deserving white men who have at least a 3.0 grade point average, Bohannan said.

    "Our aim is actually just to help students," he said. "We are not trying to jump on any political agenda or bandwagon."

    Non-Hispanic whites are, in fact, a minority in the state of Texas. Census numbers released earlier this month show that they make up about 42 percent of the state's population, down from more than half just ten years ago.

    To qualify for the group's scholarship, applicants have to be able to prove that they are at least 25 percent Caucasian," Bohannan said.

    "We're not looking for blond-haired, blue-eyed, stereotypical white males," he said. "My feeling is that if you can say you're 25 percent Caucasian, you're Caucasian enough for us."

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Nothing racist in what they're doing, imo. They have every right to do it.

    Do I think it's a good idea, is a whole other question.

    Back in 87 my college roommate was going to Ohio State for about 80 bucks a quarter due to his scholarship. This was because he was an "Appalachian White" and was eligible for a scholarship. So there has been white only scholarships before for low income areas.

    Nope, this is moonshine. I think the proper name is: "Appalachian White Lightnin'"
