Texas-based Group Offers Scholarships Only to White Students

A new group is awarding scholarships of $500 to five students who meet some controversial qualifications.

The Former Majority Association for Equality is offering their grants to male Caucasian students, as their group feels that demographic is underrepresented.

To qualify you must:

  • Be male
  • Be no less than 25% Caucasian
  • Be currently enrolled in college, university or high school
  • Hold a GAP of at least 3.0

Despite the organization’s aggressive name, they reject the idea of being a hateful or racist group. In their mission statement, they state “We do not advocate white supremacy, nor do we enable any individual that does. We do not accept donations from organizations affiliated with any sort of white supremacy or hate group.”

The group currently has 491 friends on Facebook, as they try to rally support via social media. Their Facebook wall contains supportive posts, such as “bill gates gave 1,000,000,000 dollors to minority schlorships, that white people are not eligable for. i say boycott microsoft,” from Jeff Thompson of Bluffton College

It also contains chatter, such as Hellen Allegras’ wall posting that reads: “Prejudice is always a problem in every civilization in every age, and our job as rational humans is to help those who are downtrodden. And right now, in this country, that means helping white males who are sneered at almost incessantly.”
