Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Social Justice Journalism Grant at Brandeis U. Excludes White Men”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“Applications from women and journalists of color working in any type of media — print, audio, video, online — will be considered,”

This is the only group the left seems to have no problem discriminating against. The exclusion of any other group would immediately trigger a lawsuit.

Brandeis University is offering a new $10,000 journalism grant for journalists interested in social justice issues. But there’s a catch — white men aren’t allowed to apply.

“Applications from women and journalists of color working in any type of media — print, audio, video, online — will be considered,” the university wrote in a news release on July 27 announcing the grant’s call for submissions. Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex.

The grants are a collaboration between Brandeis University’s Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism, the Fund for Investigative Journalism, and the Ford Foundation. Founded in 1952, the Ford Foundation was first created to advance civil rights and is now a leading proponent in advancing social justice work across the United States.
