Commentary: White man's burden

There is a scholarship for students who wear outfits made of duct tape to their proms. David Letterman offers a scholarship for kids with average grades. There are scholarships for students who vote Democrat — or Republican — scholarships for students who have cancer, diabetes, sickle cell, autism or Tourette’s, students named Zolp, students who are blind, deaf, vegan, Arizonan, left handed, low income, African-, Hispanic-, Native-, Asian- or woman-American. So it’s hard to get worked up over a new scholarship for students who are white men.
