Colby Bohannan , a mass communication major and Iraq war veteran, and others formed the Former Majority Association for Equality — a San Marcos [Texas]-based nonprofit group that is offering five $500 scholarships exclusively to white male students.Bohannan, the group’s president, said the name comes from the idea that “if you’re not a male, and if you’re not white, you’re called a minority.” However, he said, “I’m not sure white males are the majority anymore.”
Recent U.S. census data indicate Bohannan is right, at least in Texas, where Hispanics accounted for two-thirds of the population growth over the past decade and where non-Hispanic whites now make up about 45 percent of residents.
