    WHITE OUT

    051612-sports-golf-minority-winners-mbedit-1a-web-662w-at-1x.jpg

    One glance at the team pictures of the men’s and women’s winners from last weekend’s PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship might make people rethink the term “minority.”

    “There’s something missing, isn’t there?” Jackson State golf coach Eddie Payton said with a sly grin. “Pictures are a little grainy, aren’t they?”

    The men of Texas Pan-American and the women of Bethune-Cookman each won for the second time in the past three years. Neither school has an African-American on its roster. Half of Bethune-Cookman’s six golfers, in fact, are European
    “I raise that question sometimes myself,” said Earnie Ellison, the PGA director of business and community relations, who is African-American. “But we do not tell the coaches who to put on their teams.”

    Bethune-Cookman is a historically black college, or HBCU. So is the second-place women’s team, South Carolina State, which featured three African-Americans — including Tiana Jones, who was the individual medalist in the three-round tournament at Port St. Lucie, Fla. — and a pair of Asian sisters.

    Minority does not apply to just one race.

    The golf team is made up of minorities at a school made up of mostly minorities?

    but at that particular school, the minority is indeed the majority.
