No College Scholarships for White Males

In Zora Neale Hurston essay “How it Feels to be Colored Me” she explains that she didn’t realize she was black until she moved to Jacksonville Florida and it was reflected in how people treated her. When my son started applying to colleges he quickly realized that most of the scholarships were not for white males. He made the comment “I didn’t realize I was white until I started applying to college.” I thought this was another side of this important issue that should be covered in the race card project.
