Texas Group Offers Whites Only Scholarships

There’s a catch to this. Isn’t actually the challenge to affirmative action you think it is. Normally it might be. Who the hell doesn’t know that it is only black and Hispanics and women who need special treatment. Who are recognised as being naturally inferior and therefore needing special treatment in terms of so many social constructs that white males seem to be able to breeze through. I mean that is the falsity that underpins this barbaric fashion is it not??

The catch to this little exercise is that now, thanks to massive population shifts, white males are now a minority group in Texas. So really, things are just following the same pattern. What this does demonstrate though is the absurdity of the whole idea of affirmative action in that merely being part of a group that is demographically smaller is no grounds for special treatment. As Asians have helped prove for so long. Yet another example of the utterly crazy thinking the collectivists have indulged in over the last few decades.

Members of a new Texas association are starting a college scholarship program for a group of students they say do not have as many scholarship options as others — white men.

Colby Bohannan, a student at Texas State University in San Marcos, and some friends have formed the non-profit Former Majority Association for Equality, which will provide the scholarships. The idea was that there are many scholarships geared toward helping minorities and women attend college, and there are also scholarships for people from certain religions or from certain families. But Bohannan thought his demographic group was missing.

“We know that we’re going to be receiving some vicious attacks, from people claiming that we are racists, or promoting some bigotry-filled agenda,” Bohannan said on Thursday. Starting this summer, the association plans to provide as many as five $500 scholarships to deserving white men who have at least a 3.0 grade point average, Bohannan said. “Our aim is actually just to help students,” he said. “We are not trying to jump on any political agenda or bandwagon.”

Non-Hispanic whites are, in fact, a minority in the state of Texas. Census numbers released earlier this month show that they make up about 42 percent of the state’s population, down from more than half just ten years ago. To qualify for the group’s scholarship, applicants have to be able to prove that they are at least 25 percent Caucasian,” Bohannan said. “We’re not looking for blond-haired, blue-eyed, stereotypical white males,” he said. “My feeling is that if you can say you’re 25 percent Caucasian, you’re Caucasian enough for us.”

  1. “My feeling is that if you can say you’re 25 percent Caucasian, you’re Caucasian enough for us.”

    So I guess on that basis Obama’s kids would qualify …

    And let’s not forget those who ‘feel’ “25 percent Caucasian”. Afterall, in NZ you only have to ‘feel’ Maori to be so deemed.

    Of course the BEST way to balance the playing field for “white men” is to remove ALL other ehtnic/religious/feminist scholarships for others.

  2. No comment on contemporary politics, but I thought some might be interested to know the origin of the phrase “affirmative action”. From Lyndon Johnson’s Executive Order 11246:

    [All government contracting agencies] will take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, creed, color, or national origin.
