Last October, the student body of Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, was furious at the appearance of a "White History Month" flier on campus. The flier, which was passed around residence halls, announced that both November and December would be "White History Month" because there's "too much white history to squeeze into one month."

The flier went on to complain about the lack of "white student groups" on Mercer's campus, noting that the presence of any group celebrating Caucasian heritage would be dismissed as racist. Clearly, a high school diploma and a few college courses don't make for intelligence.

Apparently, the need for "African American societies, black student organizations, and Indian heritage associations" is too advanced a concept for some to grasp. So much for higher learning.
