A Black U.S. Army Veteran is giving out scholarships that are designated as “whites only”. You read it right.
Marcus Carter, an African-American, is the vice president of the Former Majority Association for Equality, a group that awards scholarships solely to white men.
“Just because you don’t benefit directly doesn’t mean it isn’t beneficial,” Carter, 27, explained
“It just got really frustrating when every other scholarship you happen to find online you need not apply to based on your ethnicity or gender,” said Colby Bohannan, one of FMAFE’s founders.
Searching scholarship databases such as scholarships.com and fastweb.com, every group has their own. There are categories for only African-Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians and even atheists.
