    This promotion is NOT only for students at 12 black colleges and universities and members of Hispanic student organizations.

    This offer is good only to eligible students who attend an educational institution geographically located in the United States. This offer is non-transferable. One of each product may be purchased per eligible student (but not required).

    The following conditions serve to define student eligibility for the Promotion:

    1. .edu: Individual must possess a valid e-mail address at a U.S. educational institution which contains the domain suffix .edu; OR
    Pre-Approved School List: Enrolled in a U.S. educational institution included on the pre-approved school list; OR
    Submission of school enrollment: Submit verifiable school enrollment via the validation process; AND

    2. Individual must be a student at a U.S. educational institution and must be actively enrolled in at least 0.5 course credit and be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request.

    Michelle is correct. The headline is misleading... I dislike Microsoft, but it isn't fair to say this is a racist-incited promotion like this article suggests.
