"White Student Union" Controversy at Towson University



Matthew Heimbach wants to start a group at Towson University specifically for white students. "We essentially want to replicate what every student union does on campus," Heimbach, a senior at Towson, told the student newspaper. "You have a Black student Union who promotes black heroes, we want to do the same thing." via Huffington Post. Is this just a front for a white supremacist hate group? Will this "White Student Union" discriminate against racial minorities? Find out all the details with John Iadarola and Lisa Ferguson on TYT University.

1. What controversy? "White" groups are always....

fucked up racists who don't get it and should be kicked out of civilized society.

I need two amateur TV types to spend almost 10 minutes telling me this?

5. Pretty much so. Hosts with some talent but need some more polish...

sometimes I find it unwatchable.

Yeah, I'm being picky.

7. stick with the main show with Cenk then.

When Cenk gets fired up, you KNOW it's an important issue he's talking about.

4. more complicated

They may be fronts but there is a legitimate intellectual argument to be made. Restricting their freedom of speech is not the answer. Addressing the issue in an enlightened manner will prevent the human tendency to push back---like when you restrict a kid from doing something without a rational explanation, it makes a kid want to do whatever it is even more.

6. Everything is always more complicated than on the surface, but...

first-- this guy is not a kid. He should know better and find a more productive use of his time.

And then, how much more explaining do we need that minority and/or oppressed groups are always allowed more leeway? When white men become the minority and become powerless, then we can organize like crazy against whoever took over. Right now the protest is from the fear and loathing of losing power, which is not the same thing.

10. Diversity 101

 

We call it Diversity Training not Intolerance Training.

How about Towson University teaching some reality training about our melting pot society where we are a country of many cultures and religions. Many of our grandparents came here from many different countries.


Actually we humans came here after the Big Bang and the Universe Began.


So instead of alienation lets have a whole lot of COOPERATION and learning about each other.


I thought we had to use our brains in Colleges and Universities.

11. As a Black person I support Matthew Heimbach's push for this student union.

Then I we can monitor their plans better and we know who the enemy is.
