A scholarship for white males

Texas State students are raising money to offer scholarships to white males, reports the Austin American-Statesman. “If everyone else can find scholarships, why are we left out?” asks Colby Bohannan, a communication major and Iraq war veteran, who is president of the Former Majority Association for Equality in San Marcos.

Non-Hispanic whites aren’t a majority in Texas; they make up about 45 percent of the population.

To qualify for a $500 scholarship, applicants must have a GPA over 3.0, demonstrate financial need and be at least 25 percent Caucasian and male.

The nine-member scholarship board includes three women, one Hispanic and one African-American, Bohannan told the American-Statesman.

A white guy is a terrible thing to waste, writes Darren.
