    Sure, Zimbabwe. But not in America. Although I'm sure the white people in Zimbabwe are part of the privileged class.

    At a certain point in history, whites were slaves to arabs in Northern Africa. There was a legitimate support group opportunity.

    I hope I said that loud enough so you could hear it.
    We live in the West. Caucasian culture isn't unique. It's the default culture.

    Just because something is the default does not mean it isn't distinct from everything else.

    OK, then. Give me a Mission Statement of your proposed White Student Union, and provide details when it comes to things like "unique White American experiences."

    Not going to do it.

    I don't have enough of a dog in this hunt to bite the hook.

    I'm just saying it has the right to exist, therefore none of these arguments against it have any effect.

    Are you sure that's what you want? You are white, correct? If so, then you are already receiving top notch treatment. To receive the "same treatment" as "every other culture" would honestly suck, but if you want to lose a few rungs on the ladder of privilege, that's your business.

    Move along to another issue, like socioeconomic class or something.

    Asian students are, by and large, members of a privileged class in American universities circa-2009. It doesn't (and shouldn't) matter when it comes to their having their own organizations. White students absolutely have the right to have their own organizations, but I am REALLY skeptical as to what purpose these organizations would serve. You can't have different rules for different races, however. It's completely un-American, and it's supposed to be illegal at publicly-funded schools.

    Then stop arguing as if you want to start an organization like this for real. OF COURSE they have a right to start a White Student Union. I'd be surprised as hell if they could also provide a legitimate reason for one, though. Legitimate enough for people not to be extremely pissed off. If they did, though, more power to them.

    Unique means unusual or not typical. In the US, white culture is the opposite of that, so it couldn't be further from the truth.

    But yes, it has its own characteristics and distinctness.

    Like I said, I don't care enough about this to argue any more.

    I really do not see a unique "white culture" in the United States. Far too heterogeneous and widespread a slice of the population. I have far more in common with my black neighbor on this floor of my apartment than I do with a white truck driver from Kentucky.
