Bill and Melinda Gates give billions in philanthropy to lots of different causes.....good for them. They also want to help underprivileged teens get a leg up to go to college.....that is if your skin color is correct. Turns out if you are white, you need not apply for a Gates Foundation Scholarship......
From the Gates Millennium Scholars website --
Students are eligible to be considered for a GMS scholarship if they:
• Are African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, or Hispanic American.
There are plenty of poor white kids who could use a little assistance to go to college too. But I guess helping Caucasian kids doesn't alleviate your white guilt like specifically and publicly excluding them does. Idiots! I swear!
Sorry girlie, no matter how poor your parents are, because you are white, Bill and Melinda Gates think you are unworthy of their scholarship money. On the bright side though, you have a sunny future as a bartender, stripper, or drug mule.
