Being White Doesn’t Mean I’m Rich

John Johnson

This race card comes from the struggles of applying for college scholarships and being white. There are many scholarships designated for different races that I’m not allowed to apply for, yet I don’t see any scholarships designated for people of my race. I’m not at all implying that scholarships for races is a bad thing, and that it doesn’t help people afford something as expensive as an education, I’m just stating that being white does not mean I have $80,000 to pay for an education, and would enjoy scholarships designated for me as well.
