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.
