Downtrodden young white men of America rejoice! No longer will you have to suffer the injustices that come with being a caucasian male of college age in this country, because you've got a new non-profit in your corner: The Former Majority Association for Equality is offering $500 toward your college tuition — if you're a white dude!
That's right. According to the Texas group's mission statement:
We have a very simple mission: to fill in the gap in the scholarships offered to prospective students. There are scholarships offered for almost any demographic imaginable. In a country that proclaims equality for all, we provide monetary aid to those that have found the scholarship application process difficult because they do not fit into certain categories or any ethnic group.
Just make sure you're a white dude with good grades, and you're all set! To be fair, the group told Reuters — and has made clear on their website — that they're definitely not racists. One of the non-profit's founders, Colby Bohannan told Reuters:
"We're not looking for blond-haired, blue-eyed, stereotypical white males. My feeling is that if you can say you're 25 percent Caucasian, you're Caucasian enough for us."
