Your premise doesn't hold up because students in the same school in the same classes perform quite differently based upon their race.
For real?! We don't seem to have that problem in Mexico (granted, we are supposed to be a big melting pot with different tones of skin, but basically we are mostly mestizo -though some diehard xenophobes can't even phatom it)
Also.. there were special scholarships which required one to be of a specific gender, race, religion... but there was no scholarship limited to extremely handsome, intelligent, white boys such as myself.
I know those scholarships exist, we have some for women but they are mostly for kids from native communities, without regard to gender.
