As important as guilt and pride are, discrimination and exclusion are even more critical to group indentity and integrity. Discrimination is “who is Us?” Exclusion is the act of separating Them from Us.
The original meanings of these two words represented perfectly normal and natural concepts. In recent decades cultural marxists have assigned them negative and distinctly anti-White meanings.
Discrimination (per Dictionary.com):
2. treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit: racial and religious intolerance and discrimination.
3. the power of making fine distinctions
3. discernment, taste, acumen, perception.
Discrimination (per Wikipedia):
Since the American Civil War the term “discrimination” generally evolved in American English usage as an understanding of prejudicial treatment of an individual based solely on their race, later generalized as membership in a certain socially undesirable group or social category. “Discrimination” derives from Latin, where the verb discrimire’ means “to separate, to distinguish, to make a distinction”.
Within the criminal justice system in some Western countries, minorities are convicted and imprisoned disproportionately when compared with whites. In 1998, nearly one out of three black men between the ages of 20-29 were in prison or jail, on probation or parole on any given day in the United States. Native Americans make up about 2% of Canada’s population, but account for 18% of the federal prison population as of 2000. According to the Australian government’s June 2006 publication of prison statistics, Aborigines make up 24% of the overall prison population in Australia.
In 2004, Māori made up just 15% of the total population of New Zealand but 49.5% of prisoners. Māori were entering prison at 8 times the rate of non-Māori. A quarter of the people in England’s prisons are from an ethnic minority. The Equality and Human Rights Commission found that five times more black people than white people per head of population in England and Wales are imprisoned. Experts and politicians said over-representation of black men was a result of decades of racial prejudice in the criminal justice system.
Exclude (per Dictionary.com):
1. to shut or keep out; prevent the entrance of.
2. to shut out from consideration, privilege, etc.
Social exclusion (per Wikipedia):
Social exclusion relates to the alienation or disenfranchisement of certain people within a society. It is often connected to a person’s social class, educational status, relationships in childhood and living standards and how these might affect access to various opportunities. It also applies to some degree to people with a disability, to minority, of all sexual orientations and gender identities (the LGBT community), to the elderly, and to youth (Youth Exclusion). Anyone who deviates in any perceived way from the norm of a population may become subject to coarse or subtle forms of social exclusion.
Today various communities continue to be marginalized from society due to the development of practices, policies and programs that “met the needs of white people and not the needs of the marginalized groups themselves” (Yee, 2005, p. 93). Yee (2005) also connects marginalization to minority communities, when describing the concept of whiteness as maintaining and enforcing dominant norms and discourse.
From Towson University Student Proposes To Start A White Student Union On Campus, CBS Baltimore, 7 September 2012:
“We had to congregate together because we weren’t allowed to congregate with whites,” Julian Carroll, a junior at the university, said. “There is a difference between a White Student Union and a Black Student Union based on the history of America.”
Richard Vatz resigned as [faculty] adviser for that [Youth for Western Civilization] group. He says that just because the name changes, the principles don’t.
“When you have a group that calls themselves the White Student Union, their only purpose is generally hostility towards those who are non-white,” Vatz, a communications professor at Towson University, said.
Right now, no application is on file with the university to start the White Student Union. If it is discriminatory, it will not be approved.
“If inclusiveness is not the plan, then it will not be recognized by the Student Government Association,” Dr. Teri Hall, vice president of Student Affairs at Towson University, said.

From Letter to the Editor: Support white history, culture, by Matthew Heimbach, The Towerlight, 2 September 2012:
Question: I am white… like really white. As in pretty much only from Western Europe, so naturally I’d be allowed to join right? However, I’m also Jewish, so does that nullify my entrance into the organization? You mention celebrating white culture, but do you deny the monotheistic religion from whence you came? Let me know Mattybear!
Someone who already knows the answer.
From Interest for White Student Union grows, The Towerlight, 5 September 2012:
To say that “If blacks can have it, whites should have it too!” is a word trick. Do not fall for it. Blackness and whiteness are not symmetrical definitions. Blackness is defined by possession of black ancestry. Whiteness, on the other hand, is defined not by possession of white ancestry, but by NON-possession of non-white ancestry.
Someone like Barack Obama, for example, who has one black parent and one white parent, would be welcome in the Black Student Union but would be unwelcome in the White Student Union. This shows that a White Student Union is, BY THE VERY DEFINITION OF WHITENESS, more racist than a Black Student Union.
(Yes, I am “anti-white”, because “whiteness” is a racist construct.)
If these people really wanted fairness, they should form a student union that welcomes anyone with ANY QUANTITY of white ancestry, regardless of what other ancestry they may have. Only then would such a student union be equivalent to a Black Student Union that welcomes anyone with ANY QUANTITY of black ancestry. Think about it.
White pride (per Wikipedia):
Philosopher David Ingram argues that “affirming ‘black pride’ is not equivalent to affirming ‘white pride,’ since the former—unlike the latter—is a defensive strategy aimed at rectifying a negative stereotype”. By contrast, then, “affirmations of white pride—however thinly cloaked as affirmations of ethnic pride—serve to mask and perpetuate white privilege”.
