Discriminatory George Floyd Scholarship at North Central University Challenged By Equal Protection Project

by William A. Jacobson at legalinsurrection.com

The Equal Protection Project (EPP) (EqualProtect.org) of the Legal Insurrection Foundation has challenged numerous racially discriminatory programs done in the name of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This discrimination comes in various ways, but the overarching theme is to exclude or diminish some people and promote others, based on race, color, or ethnicity. We have filed over 20 complaints and legal actions in the year since launch in February 2023, with at least 10 schools withdrawing or modifying the discriminatory programs.

In our latest action, we have filed a Civil Rights Complaint (full embed at bottom of post) with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) against North Central University (NCU) in Minneapolis, regarding the George Floyd Memorial Scholarship, which is open only to black students and provides a four year-full tuition scholarship.

The Scholarship page states:

On June 4, 2020, North Central University President Scott Hagan announced the creation of the George Floyd Memorial Scholarship and challenged every university president in the United States of America to establish a George Floyd Memorial Scholarship Fund at their institutions.

In his remarks, Hagan said it is time “to invest like never before in a new generation of young black Americans, who are poised and ready to take leadership in our nation.”
