    For some reason, I was under the impression that Towson was an HBCU. That brought forth all sorts of interesting thoughts. But then I looked it up, and it’s 67% white and not an HBCU. Which brings forth rather uninteresting thoughts.Report

    “Rep. Kris Crawford, a Republican from Florence and also an emergency room doctor, supports the expansion but expects the Republican caucus to vote as a bloc against the Medicaid expansion.

    “The politics are going to overwhelm the policy. It is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House right now, especially for the Republican Party,” Crawford said.”

            I honestly don’t know a whole lot about the group. Maybe they should qualify as such. I kind of figured that they basically try to pass as a counterpart to other ethnic or racial student union groups.

            After writing the above, I recalled that the College Republicans were banned from my campus for a time. I don’t know why, but I *assume* it wasn’t just “Republicans are a hate group” rationale. I’d assume they crossed some sort of line.

            Which I guess is what it would come to with the WSU. What they were doing that they couldn’t half-credibly point to some other group doing the same thing. If that makes sense.Report

              Student: Yeah, uh Dean Smith, uh we want to have a group that is just like the Vietnamese Student Union, except for White Students

              Dean: But aren’t you just trying to exclude non-whites for no reason other than racial hatred.

              Student: Not at all. We just want to make sure white people can get together to have an increased opportunity to meet other white people, whom compose the vast majority of the population already.

              Dean: If they’re the majority, don’t you meet them constantly? Why do you need a club to help white people meet other white people?

              Student: Uhhh.. really, what we mean to say is that we want a forum where we won’t meet non-white people.

              Dean: That’s a problem.

              Student. No, really we are just like the other race-based groups. We want to get together to share traditional white people experiences and cultures, like watching movies with white people in them about white people’s experiences, e.g. Transformers 2. After all, it’s hard to get people together these days to find time to remember white people culture, what with so few movies, books, Tv showsand what not focusing on non-white stuff. And we want to go to white people restaurants and try to make sure that young white people have an appreciation and knowledge of white people food, like pizza, beef, chicken, and dessert.

              Dean: Not looking so good. Isn’t an important difference the fact that the other -as you call them- “race-based” or cultural groups try to create support networks for students who are part of a minority who might, as a result, feel ostracized or alienated, especially if their family raised them in that culture and now they’re on their own?

              Student: I feel I am alienated from white culture on this vastly majority white campus and vastly majority white city.

              Dean: Go away please.Report

                If we put aside the fact that this may be a racist front group, this seems to be the heart of the matter. At what point does a well intentioned group shift from being a constructive support network to being a negative, exclusionary force? Is it at 50%? Is it when they become the largest minority? Or is it always a matter of their intentions? Or are racial groupings all inherently racist?Report

    Racism. Sexism. Anti-semitism. Wanting to challenge women who portray powerful roles in movies to “a fist fight.”

    This is far too common in the GOP an it’s why I gave up on them. Conservatism plays at pretending this stuff doesn’t exist rather than facing it head-on.Report
