Money for White Men


We're not racist/sexist, just great equalizers.
Have you ever wondered why women and minorities get (allegedly) preferential treatment from higher ed scholarship selection committees? No? Are you sure? Well, OK, as a historian and literate human being neither have I, but a new group based in San Marcos, TX, the "Former Majority Association for Equality,"  wants YOU to start thinking about the pressing issue of gender and racial discrimination . . . against white men.

Better still, they want you--if you're the right demographic--to stand up and demand the country stop treating everyone else (i.e., all those people with boobs and vaginas and dual airy fairy ethnic identities like "African American," "Mexican American," "Asian American," and the like) as though they deserve extra money while you, a historically privileged member of the white male majority, are no longer worthy of special treatment.

"The Former Majority Association for Equality" is a Nonprofit Organization that was officially incorporated with the State of Texas in March of 2010. Its mission statement is as follows:

Our goal: To financially assist young Americans seeking higher education who lack opportunities in similar organizations that are based upon race or gender. 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.



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.


But FMAFE wants to assure you that they are NOT racist or sexist; they're simply trying to make sure that white males in this country get a fair shake. For too long white males have found themselves victims of forces beyond their control. FMAFE seeks to rectify that issue. Young white men, they believe, deserve better from a country that their elite white male ancestors founded to serve (only) their white male descendants. What's wrong with making sure white men everywhere can achieve their gendered racial legacy?

One obstacle that we immediately anticipate is to not appear racist or racially motivated. We do not advocate white supremacy, nor do we enable any individual that does. We do not accept donations from organizations affiliated with any sort of white supremacy or hate group. We have no hidden agenda to promote racial bigotry or segregation. FMAE’s existence is dedicated around one simple principle, to provide monetary aid for education to white males who need it.

So, are you a respectable white male in need of $500 for school? Contacted FMAFE and you might hit the jackpot. http://www.fmafe.org/Mission.html

Full Disclosure: Young white women are on the board, so you may or may not get fair consideration after all (you know how those people with vaginas can be tricky), but FMAFE does try its best to satisfy all white males who apply for funding.
