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.

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