According to its website the “Privilege Grant” is exclusively available to white men since:
“American college campuses have changed and demographics once considered disadvantaged are no longer held back by racial, homophobic or sexist bias. Research now suggests that low-income Caucasian males are the most in need of help.”
“[It] started off as something that would wind up social justice warriors. All of my very best ideas start as mischievous jokes because they will wind up the right people.” – Milo Yiannopoulos to BuzzFeed News.
Grants will be pulled from a pool of $125,000 that will offer 50 $2,500 scholarships in total. Where did the capital come from?
Yiannopoulos bequeathed $25,000 himself, while the rest was from supporters that included “very famous rappers, novelists and politicians,” all whom support Yiannopoulos’ movement he told BuzzFeed.
Yiannopoulos has a variety of critics, including Twitter, which recently unverified the writer, after he was accused of online harassment. The Privilege Grant’s website was also the target of a DDOS attack, which forced the site off-line.
However, it’s back up as of press time. Wonder who these rappers are that are supporting this.
