Bigoted academia: For the second year in a row Brandeis University is offering a racist $10K journalism grant only to minorities and women, specifically excluding white males.
The grant’s entire eligibility requirements, from the university’s press release, are quite blunt:
Applications from women and journalists of color working in any type of media — print, audio, video, online — will be considered.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens but can be reporting from abroad.
As the article above notes, federal law forbids any organization that receives federal funds (as Brandeis does) from discriminating based on either sex or race. But then, bigotry today in the leftwing community is perfectly all right, as long as you are oppressing whites or men.
I think Lous Brandeis, for whom this university is named, would be horrified by its actions.
