Posted on 08/02/2013 4:31:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Georgia State Universitys official roster of more than 300 campus organizations includes everything from the Bengali Student Association to the Womens Ultimate Frisbee Club. But one student group you wont find on the list the new White Student Union is already making headlines nationwide.
Freshman Patrick Sharp says he launched the White Student Union this summer in order to recognize and appreciate white culture. As he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, All we want to do is celebrate white identity. This is about being in touch with who you are as a white person and being proud of that. Although the group has not been recognized by the university, Sharp says a handful of students have already joined.
It is unlikely that the union will receive a charter from the university. To do so, it would need to find a faculty advisor, which Sharp concedes would be difficult. Whats more, several students have already complained to the Atlanta schools administration after seeing the clubs flyers posted around campus. While Sharp is aware that people will accuse his group of being racist, he tells the Constitution, Ive already heard some of that and I dont care what they have to say. He added, Why is it when a white person says he is proud to be white hes shunned as a racist?
The university has taken no action to ban the group. According to the Constitution, Doug Covey, vice president for student affairs, responded to complaints by saying that the group had a right to exist and practice free speech. It will also be allowed to meet in common areas on campus....

So a Black Student Union isn’t racist?
Where is the White Congressional Congress on this subject?.....Oh wait...
I’m not sure I know what ‘white culture’ is.
White Pride.... I love it.
Obama and his race baiters are going to regret what THEY have started.
I dunno, Weiner is a white guy who likes to get in touch with himself....
Good for them. Enough is enough.
“Obama may get the race war he so desperately wants.”
“Save your Confederate money...the South SHALL rise again!”
That would be the Reichstag fire he wants, but my gut feeling, is that Kipling's Saxon will not wake up anytime soon. I wish I could be more positive than that, but I can't. My opinion, is that each man sees himself as an individual, going up against the entire government. Not exactly to conducive to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
“”Im not sure I know what white culture is.””
Heck - that shouldn’t be an impediment. Everyone else makes it up as they go along so these students can too. More power to them!!! Play their silly game until the other side gets tired of the shenanigans and hollers UNCLE!
Sad, isn't it? It used to be called "Western Civ".
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
There should also be a heterosexual alliance organization. You don’t get a “seat at the diversity table” if you don’t organize.

People from Spain, Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala, and Peru are only united by a common language yet they are lumped together for statistical (and representation) analysis/quotas.
Are White Hispanics included like me? I suppose I’m a white hispanic whatever the hell that means.
White(Caucasian) is a race, Hispanic is an ethnicity.
Best post. Thumbs up to you.
LOL, I don't know. I think you were Army, I was Air Force. I just think the Saxon is not going wake up. I hope I am wrong, but I think not.
Did you click through to the thread?
Sad, isn't it? It used to be called "Western Civ".
I remember when we were taught that in high school!
Those were the days!
Race has no taxonomic significance. It is archaic and meaningless.
There is the human species...and then you have subspecies.
I've seen the phrase "acting white" in modern discourse. It usually seems to reference acts of literacy, numerancy, and\or articulation. Not sure if that's related or not.
That is your opinion. Many Anthropologists disagree with you.
Wonder if one can get a degree in “White Studies” at GSU?
Just so you will know, my use of the words white ‘pride’, instead of ‘power’, was deliberate.
How about the White Panthers?
I have seen it before. Right now, I do not think the people have the will go do it. I think the guy is right, the wolves are just biding their time, waiting for the time that they think they will have a distinct advantage. Then they will make their move. Then will the people have the will to use it. I still don't know. It hasn't happened yet, but I think I would rather meet you at Yorktown than Masada. I don't feel like committing suicide any time soon.
Anthropology is so cross threaded with sociology and pure socialism that I have doubts about calling it a real science!
Yep, I took a pre-PC course in anthropology and was very definitely taught that there are only three races and we know what they are. Of course, there are some humans of mixed race, but all these categories most PC types constantly discuss are ethnic groups and not racial groups.
“Why after 19 years of loyal marriage did he leave his wife? He said,’Because she was a n***** lover.’”
I’m mixed Italian, Norway and Asian. I’m fine either way.
I don’t know about the word pride’ as the fudgepackers adopted it.
I had the same experience as you, except I was told 4 races with sub-races below them.
According to most black race whores, Democrats, and the rest of the liberals, you can only be a racist if you are a member of a superior race.
Go mull that over.
I think even white blacks are included, especially since a scant few are “pure”— I’ve always wondered about an experiment like this, which seems pointed towards the viciously racist black culture that is emerging — and is getting worse. Why not have a white club and invite all colors to join? Serve White Soul Food, southern style. It’s the same as black soul food.
In psychology parlance, a homosexual "pride" parade is referred to as a "hall of mirrors".
The homosexuals sure don’t own the word.
It's not so much what white culture is as what it isn't.
It's NOT calling your girlfriend "whore" or "bitch"
It's NOT having your azz hang out the back of your pants
It's NOT being loud and obnoxious for its own sake.
It's NOT selling your vote for "free stuff"
It's NOT bastardizing the nation's language
It's NOT elevating criminals to celebrity status
It's NOT expecting the guy down the street to pay your way
It's NOT being a WHINING PERPETUAL VICTIM
I was thinking about the Australian Aborigines as I typed my post. I don’t recall how they were categorized in my anthropology course, but I don’t think they were considered a fourth race. I remember several theories about their pattern of migration to Australia. Here is an interesting sentence or two from Wiki:
“In a genetic study in 2011, researchers found evidence, in DNA samples taken from strands of Aboriginal people’s hair, that the ancestors of the Aboriginal population split off from the ancestors of the European and Asian populations between 62,000 and 75,000 years agoroughly 24,000 years before the European and Asian populations split off from each other.”
Their darker skin could be explained by tens of thousands of years in Australia.
I say the we should abolish the phrase “acting white” due to it's racist overtone and substitute it with the phrase “acting successful”.
If that happens, all the white volunteers at the social ministries will have to quit for their own safety and the black ‘clients’ will have nowhere to go and will grow destitute.
Understood. I'm just trying to sort out the semantics. Supposedly "black" is a race characterized by African ancestry, but Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, et al aren't considered authentically "black". That seems to imply a black stereotype. I suspect "white culture" is just another stereotype.
Interesting, thanks for the info.

We want folks to be free to be who they are, to ply their talents, and to be all they can be, LIVE and BE FREE. Hell, we tore this country apart against our cousins in England and our brothers on this continent for freedom... white folks have as much right these days to freedom of expression as anybody. And yes, we recognize the evils of past generations, but we will not bow to the pressure of condemnation for past generations. We will not grovel like Chris Matthews, we know our freedoms, and ain't nobody gunna take em away... no matter how much they try to impugn us.
We just want to Live and Let Live, but we sure as hell aint gunna be subservient to the likes of racist whiners like Jesse Jackson, Obama, Rev Wright, Al Sharpton, the NAACP or the Congressional Black Caucus. Aint it funny, nobody has lifted a finger to hurt one hair of the heads of those just mentioned, even though they are despicable persons by most standards of decency. Yet they scream and whine like some old fashioned lynch mob is after them... guys, those days are long past over... Ya gotta move on... we have... Live and Let Live. Stop trying to put white folks into the slavery of condemnation, or haven't you heard, that's just plain wrong.
Scary is that there will be a large number of White Guilt Liberals who will attack a White Student Union...
