it disturbs me to know that people like this exist. What bothers me more is that they are the majority.
"
Junior Charnae Mosley, peace keeper of Freedom's Black Student Union, said the idea of a Caucasian Club seemed unfocused. Caucasian is broad, it's not one specific thing," the 16-year-old said. There's no need for a Caucasian Club because they're not a minority."

One person who won't be signing up is Darnell Turner, first vice president of the local chapter of the NAACP. Turner says he thinks the club will create racial tension.

"
These statements are reported to be in response to a girl trying to start a "Caucasian Club" at her high school, where there allready exist clubs such as "Black Student Union" and "Latinos Unidos".

Honestly, Ive read the reports and I can say that I see no problem with a "Causcasian Club" that involves itself with the history & culture of the various 'caucasian' european cultures. To not allow them to form their club just because it could cause racial tension is as bad as not allowing a black club in an all white neighborhood because it will cause tensions. The facts remain the same. When one group asks for equal treatment, that door must swing both ways. Racism is not just a black thing, and is ugly in any form. I think its great that finally some white people are starting to get over the guilt from the centuries of slavery 'we' imposed on the minority races. We need not be ashamed of our ethnic histories just because we are white. We are just as rich and varied as any, and should shout out our pride for all to see. At least, that is my opinion. :-) Thanks for bringing this article up, and sorry for using your comments section as a sounding board! :-)

Your bitching simply echoes my own, I don't disagree with any one of your points.

"we wanna be equal and just like everyone else, so we're gonna make a club that seperates us from everyone else."

Some people just dont get it.
