Why aren't there scholarships for straight white men?

I was looking as scholarships to apply for and so many are for blacks, asians, hispanics, jews, gays, lesbians, and pretty much every minority you can immagine. Then there are scholarships for women only. But the only ones I, as a straight white man can apply for are ones that all of the above categories can also apply for. Why are there no exclusive scholarships for straight white men like there are for others? I come from a middle class family of 7 with one working parent where, as the oldest, my parents cannot afford to pay for my college education, I'm expected to pay for it all myself. So why do minorities get their own scholarships while I have to compete for the communal ones?
