The White Student Union at Towson University is organizing patrols to stop alleged “black on white crime” on campus. The group first garnered headlines during the recent CPAC convention. The Baltimore area student group has reportedly been deemed a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Towson does not officially recognize the White Student Union as a campus organization. The Maryland college students first caused a stir when questioning why Frederick Douglass’ former owner needed to be forgiven. The students referenced the slave owner giving Douglass food and shelter when posing a CPAC panel question.
The White Student Union reportedly considers “black male against white female” crime a huge problem on campus and is organizing security patrols to fight the supposed problem. Group founder Matthew Heimbach had this to say about the Baltimore area university campus crime patrols:
“The goal is not to go out and intimidate, the goal is not to go out and prove something, the goal is just to be an extra set of eyes and ears for the [Towson] community at large.”
Heimbach also stated that the group would help Towson University crime victims who were not white. Some feel that the racial tone of the White Student Union has been dialed down since the CPAC convention and the publishing of a blog post. The title of the controversial blog post read, “Black Crime Wave Continues!” The post went on to state that it might be hard for those who are not Towson University student to understand that “black predators prey” on the “majority” of white students on campus.
An excerpt from the hotly debated blog post reads:
“White Southern men have long been called to defend their communities when law enforcement and the State seem unwilling to protect our people. The virtue of white Christian womanhood is under attack at Towson University by degenerate criminals seeking to rob our women of their God given innocence.”
Towson University officials are reportedly enhancing the presence of campus police due to the White Student Union announcement. College officials also disputed the crime statements uttered by the non-official student group.
