White man's $250 burden

Hotpotatomash has good find about Boston University College Republicans, who, in an effort to protest racial and ethnic scholarships, started up their own race-based scholarship; a whopping $250 bucks to the lucky whitey who is deemed sufficiently white and worthy to receive the award to attend a school whose tuition is $33,000/year.

Speaking about the purpose of the Caucasian Achievement and Recognition Scholarship, which is clearly not about financial aid per se, president of the BU College Republicans Joe Mroszczyk says,
We think giving out a scholarship based on any race is crazy.
Naturally, the BU white boys proceeded to then create a "scholarship based on race." I'm guessing this a a College Republican's idea of irony.
