White Student Union Established at Georgia State University

CircleLogo-WEBA new student group is starting up on the campus of Georgia State University in Atlanta. According to the group’s website, The White Student Union at Georgia State University will be “a place for like-minded White students to come together and not only celebrate their common European/Euro-American cultures, but to discuss issues that affect White people in the world today.” The website states that the White Student Union will “advocate for the interests of White people while celebrating heritage, culture, and working with other student groups on campus.”

According to the latest Department of Education statistics, Whites make up 36 percent of the 24,000-member undergraduate student body at Georgia State and Blacks are 37 percent of the undergraduates.
