White Males Barred From College's Social Justice Journalism Grant

Investigative journalists have a tendency to be crusaders, eager to right the perceived wrongs of the world. They're treated as romantic figures in literature alongside people like cowboys and spies, and there are instances where those comparisons are well-deserved.

However, on issues of "social justice," whatever that means, a college thinks the job isn't suitable for white males. From The College Fix:

If white males have a role in investigating social justice issues, not everyone sees it.

Journalism grants to probe social justice issues offered through Brandeis University are open only to women and journalists of color, according to a news release announcing the opportunity.

The research grants are offered as a collaborative effort between Brandeis University’s Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism and its Fund for Investigative Journalism.

A lawsuit would take care of that.

Because White Males aren't covered by the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Or allowed to comment on touchy issues at Goolag?

But maybe Bruce Jenner qualifies?

So sick of this world excluding people because of their sex, color, and any ole thing that comes to the mind of holier than thou people. You're too tall, too short....too fat....too skinny. Imagine what it would be like to live in a country where everyone lifts up everyone else. What we could do.

A SCHOOL is promoting SEGREGATION????

By color and sex????

I think we have finally located Cheerleading Headquarters.

But if I open a school only for white kids with high IQ's, that would be racist?

These people will never be compared to Einstein, but must they show their hypocrisy and stupidity in such public ways????
keep cheering.
