When Colby Bohannan was looking for college financial aid nine years ago, he concluded that he was at a disadvantage because of his race.
“In the landscape of the scholarship foundations in this country, there is just one demographic that does not have a single dedicated scholarship,” he told ABCNews.com. And that demographic, said Bohannan, is white males.
“That’s the gap we’re trying to fill,” he said.
Bohannan said he found a plethora of scholarship options for minorities and women when he was searching in 2002, but not one dedicated solely to white males.
So after taking a hiatus from school during which he served in the Iraq War, Bohannan launched the Former Majority Association for Equality, a nonprofit organization that takes its name from the fact that according to U.S. census numbers, non-Hispanic whites make up only 45 percent of the Texas state population…
Since founding his organization, Bohannan said he’s heard from supporters, as well as from those who accuse him of bigotry.
“We’re not racists, just guys trying to help young Americans,” he said.
A spokesman for Texas State University, where Bohannan is currently studying, distanced the school from the Former Majority Association for Equality.
I can’t help but wonder at what point, if any, it will become non-controversial to support whites as a group. If there is only one white person left on the planet, would it then be alright to support him without fomenting a storm of protest?
We can argue that young whites should not be encouraged to subject themselves to so-called “higher-education”, which is mostly a front for the propagation of hatred toward whites. But we can’t deny that there is some benefit to having a degree, and Bohannan’s heart is certainly in the right place.
All the power to Bohannan for standing up to the anti-white establishment. Incidentally, here is where you donate to this cause.
