Re: Ellison Lodge's article Are Whites Racially Oppressed? The Question Media Matters Doesn't Want Asked.
From: A Reader Who Clicked On Our Links [Email him]
Ellison Lodge states:
"A Texas group recently formed the 'Former Majority Association for Equality' to offer college scholarships to needy white men. Colby Bohannan, [Email him] the group's president, says white men don't have scholarship options available to minorities. 'White males are definitely not a majority' anymore, he says."
This is the only concrete example of whites really treating themselves as a conscious interest group, however. And it's just a few brave people who raised money for a few 500 dollar scholarships. This is crumbs compared to the hundreds of millions of dollars in minority scholarships given each year to corporate and government funded groups such as the United Negro College Fund.
The reality is a bit different: Applicants for the scholarship only need to be one-quarter Caucasian, a standard which Barack Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia would meet, as well as maintaining a 3.0 GPA and demonstrating financial need. See the application [PDF] at the website of the Former Majority Association for Equality.
James Fulford writes: The scholarship fund is probably afraid to insist on what used to be called "racial purity" because they're afraid of even worse publicity. However, if their scholarship is to have any point to it, it should go to people who don't qualify for other scholarships. Tiger Woods, for example, may be 25 percent white, although it's hard to tell, but Woods has called himself "Caublinasian" signifying Caucasian, black, American Indian, and Asian ancestry.
But it would be pointless to give him a $500 "white guy" scholarship, when there are already huge scholarship funds for blacks and Indians, and even a small one for Thai-Americans.(I'm just using Woods as a famous multi-racial example—in fact he went to Stanford, where he studied economics, on a golf scholarship.)
