Excerpt from this post:
White Men are the new minority. They can’t get scholarships for school because of the colored and lady folk. Except, that’s not true. Not even a little bit.
Well, I have the numbers for the Nationwide study. I’ll admit it, these are the numbers that dance in my head when I hear “White people/white men are the new minorities.” Ready? Here we go…
White: Scholarship Recipients-798,400 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$1,891 Million
Black: Scholarship Recipients-129,000 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$345 Million
Latino: Scholarship Recipients-103,900 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$236 Million
Asian: Scholarship Recipients-52,800 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$186 Million
American Indian: Scholarship Recipients-19,000 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$56 Million
Native Hawaiian: Scholarship Recipients-6,200 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$30 Million
Multi-Racial: Scholarship Recipients-40,200 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$156 Million
The study goes on to say that LESS THAN FIVE PERCENT of ALL scholarships and LESS THAT TEN PERCENT of INDIVIDUAL scholarships consider the student’s race among their eligibility criteria. Soooooooo….What were you saying about white men being the new minority?
With all this information, I was still able to find page after page of race baiting white only scholarships. The sick part is that although I was able to find many white only scholarships, I was not able to find one (at least not on any web site that I looked at) that didn’t preface the information with some form of “Minorities get everything handed to them. Now it’s our turn.”
