FORT WORTH -- A 57-year-old Tarrant County College student is gathering signatures supporting the formation of a white student group that would allow people to embrace their heritage while also addressing issues such as affirmative action and the creation of a White History Month.
Richard Railey, who is studying information technology at TCC, has been trying to generate support for the White Student Union of Tarrant County. He said white students don't have a group of their own, but groups have been formed around other races, ethnicity or interests.

I’ve got the perfectly named place for their off campus headquarters: White Settlement, Texas adjacent to Fort Worth.
Absolutely - They way it is right now is only whites are supposed to be ‘colorblind’. As long as there are black & Hispanic, etc advocacy groups then whites should have them too.
on a lighter note, this sort of reminds me of that Will Farrell movie about Fraternity....
A PC mayor tried to change the city's name to "West Settlement" several years ago and was promptly voted out on his keister by disapproving citizens. As it should be.
In this case, it’s pointing out the sauce on the goose’s bill...
Good for him. According to the most recent census, whites are now a minority in Texas.
Goose, meet the gander!
True. As soon as the race hustling and ethnic identity politics of other groups went away, this group would immediately disband.
Depends on what you classify as “white.”
Technically, Hispanics are “white.” From a completely racial-stock perspective, they are. In fact, a Hispanic person’s DL will say “W” for race.
Are they going to allow “White-Hispanics” to the group? /s
Technically Spaniards are white. And then there are Spanish-speaking Argentinians of German origin.
Most Hispanics in this country are mestizo, or indio. or a good deal of African, i.e. Dominican Republic or Puerto Rican.
I vote for more Japanese-Peruvian immigrants. Just because.
For those interested, Fort Worth was actually a fort.. a military base. Outside the fort there was an Indian settlement and a white settlement. The name stuck
I don’t like group politics either, but if it’s OK for the White-haters, it’s OK for the Whites.
I always said, "When is White History Month?"
I’m proud to be a European-American!!
I am Proud to be an Italian-Welsh-English American!!
Just as I'm proud more particularly of being descendant of Germans and the tribes of Britain, along with the Comanche, Creek with at least one African American "in the woodshed," along the trail.
Of course, all this makes me "pass," as they used to say, or pigeon hole, as is the practice of modern day progressive bigots, as "White."
I still classify myself as an American, and a typical Texan.
In the stifling sticky world of tiny brains and community colleges, I can either join all the various student unions or stay at home and hate myself.
Vaya con Dios.
