A white student has been forced to give back his scholarship as it was intended “only for black kids”.
The scholarship was taken back by the Anti-White Martin Luther King Senior Citizens Club.
A 17-year-old student at King High School in Riverside has returned a $1,000 scholarship intended for black students because he is white.
Jeffrey Warren and his father Rod had to return the scholarship from the Martin Luther King Senior Citizens Club the night the teen was announced as the winner of the African-American student scholarship.
Jeffrey, who has a 4.25 cumulative grade-point average, applied for 27 scholarships and won three others in addition to the award from the Martin Luther King Senior Citizens Club, which only specified that African Americans were “encouraged to apply,” to avoid revealing that they would not pay for a white child’s education. School counselors were informed that the scholarship was for black students only.
The club intends to change the language on next year’s application to clarify who is eligible, and white folk need not apply.
The returned scholarship was later awarded to an Negro girl at King High School.
