Pres. Loeschke: Denounce "White Student Union" at Towson University!

    1. Petition by

      Change Nation

A Towson University student wants to start a White Student Union, exclusive to white students.

This is not the first time that a campus hate group has been proposed at Towson. 

The first attempt, “Youth for Western Civilization,” raised concerns after white supremacist messages began popping up around campus. This group disbanded but the idea is back again!

Historically, minority students were excluded from Greek life and other campus organizations. The creation of Black student unions were a breakthrough in the civil rights movement and an opportunity to educate all races on racial equality and historical injustices.

The mere idea of a group like this being introduced on a college campus is shameful and undermines the struggles that minority groups have faced in America.

Send a letter to Towson University’s President, Dr. Maravene Loeschke and tell her to publicly denounce the creation or any future creation of a hate group on campus!

      I support groups that promote education that are not exclusive and do not promote segregation. My fear is that this group would support racial ignorance and prejudice rather than education. Also, the majority in my opinion, doesn't need to celebrate itself. The majority culture is already the predominant culture. This push to celebrate "white heroes" and "white history" and "white culture" is exclusionary, because the vast majority of heroes, history, and culture in the United States is white people. By this group adding the "white" classifier the only thing accomplished is the exclusion of minority groups.

      minorities cannot afford to let whites organize. If they do, they would be able able to pursue their racial interests which are at odds with nonwhites. It is extremely important to prevent them from thinking in terms of their racial interests because they will oppose our plans for them. We need to reduce them to minority status as quickly as possible. Diversity is or Greatest Strength against evil whites!

      We don't need this now. This request will hurt Towson in the future.
