Immediately labeled racist by members of Black Student Union
The White Student Union at Towson University has been accused of being a hate group, which Heimbach has denied.
At GSU, the group “Progressive Student Alliance” has posted flyers on campus against Sharp’s club, equating his club with white supremacists.
“You know, to say this is some closeted or curtained white supremacy, it’s pretty — and I’ll go ahead and turn their words around on them — it’s pretty ignorant and close-minded,” Sharp said. “It’s a pride organization, it’s a cultural organization, what we have is not hate for any other group… Whites are becoming a minority… We have a voice, we’re unique people, and we have every right to make that voice heard.”
The new club has stirred up controversy not only among students at Georgia State, but also among students at other colleges and universities.
