The Washington Post opines “A Facebook page ostensibly created for an audience at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign called “Illini White Students Union” has drawn fire after it characterized the national Black Lives Matter movement as terrorism.”
“Created Wednesday after a protest sympathetic to Black Lives Matter, the page declared itself ‘for white students of University of Illinois to be able to form a community and discuss our own issues as well as be able to organize against the terrorism we have been facing from Black Lives Matter activists on campus,’ as the Daily Illini reported.”
“The page did not last long in its original incarnation, but was taken down after three hours. It has since been revived.”
“’We recognize the right to free speech, and we encourage you to exercise that right when you see examples of racism, discrimination or intimidation on our campus,’ Interim Chancellor Barbara Wilson, who called the page ‘extremely disturbing,’ wrote in a message Thursday to the student body.”
“In an anonymous message to the News-Gazette, the page’s administrator discussed Black Lives Matter. “We feel they disrupt student daily life and activity far too much,” the message read, saying that movement “marginalizes” white students. “… We are in the United States and not Africa and we don’t desire to have an African flag on campus.”
“The current page is bare bones — just a few links to news stories about the controversy with an image of a statue on campus. The ‘about’ section dedicated the page to ‘White Pride and a safe place for White students,’ according to the News-Gazette, though that page appeared to have changed.”
The university faculty will no doubt try to hunt this kid down and cyber-lynch him for daring to suggest White people deserve the same rights and ability to organize as a group as the Blacks, Latinos or Jews.
The extreme double-standard that always works against Whites is being question by young college age people, who have a lifetime of reverse discrimination to contend with and minorities, who get more pushy and militant every day.
Just recently there has been a campaign to claim that White people enjoy “White privilege.” Really? Does White privilege mean Harvard tells you “No” even though you got higher SAT scores than all the Blacks and Latinos, who got in? Does White privilege mean being turned down for job after job because all the employers want to check one of those Affirmative Action boxes to appease the Feds? It’s bad enough to be last in line, but to have pushy minorities and Marxist professors accusing you of still being “privileged” for being White just adds insult to injury.
