British journalist and conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has started a scholarship for “white men only.”
The Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant is “a scholarship exclusively available to white men who wish to pursue their post-secondary education on equal footing with their female, queer and ethnic minority classmates.”
The plans for the grant are to disburse 50 grants of $2,500 to “poor, white males” who need that final financial push to get them to college. Instead of facing massive student loans, the grant is a plan to ease the financial burden when repayment of said loans begins.
Yiannopoulos commented on the subject:
I understand that our focus on white men will strike some people as controversial or even offensive. Good. It’s time to re-examine the facts, because they don’t support the current media narrative that women and ethnic minorities are some kind of oppressed victim class. If there’s a patriarchy, it’s not doing a very good job of protecting male interests, is it? It’s men who need the help now — and we’re going to give it to them.
This very existence of this grant is sure to stir up controversy on both sides of the argument, but that has never stopped Yiannopoulos before.
Just watch and see for yourself (Warning: Some graphic language)
