Today in random and racist ridiculousness..
The controversial Towson University “White Student Union,” which has officially been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is now planning to take desperate measures to protect white students on campus from the big bad black people. SMH.

The controversial White Student Union has resurfaced on Towson’s campus with plans to conduct random nighttime patrols, which members say are for students’ protection.
Some members of the group, equipped with flashlights, will conduct on-campus safety walks, and female members will carry pepper spray in an attempt to protect students from various crimes like sexual assaults and robberies, WSU President Matthew Heimbach said.
Heimbach said female members have also been enrolling in self-defense classes, and members have been going to local gun ranges as a group, but not in a “military way,” Heimbach said.
He said group members would carry no weapons on the nighttime walks.
One need look no further than the White Student Union’s blog to see why their vigilante operations could turn problematic.
In a blog post last month entitled “Black Crime Wave Continues!“, the group writes:
“The frequent robberies, sexual assaults, and acts of vandalism at Towson University are not often reported in the local media. For those who are not Towson students it seems hard to fathom that every single day black predators prey upon the majority white Towson University student body. White Southern men have long been called to defend their communities when law enforcement and the State seem unwilling to protect our people.”
Pulling the race card when it comes to crime is very 1994, in our humble opinion.
If 2012 and unfortunately, the little that we’ve experienced so far of 2013, has taught us anything about violence, it’s that it continues to be a growing problem across our country in general.
People of all races, backgrounds and social classes are out here acting a fool. So targeting a particular group of people and thinking that this will solve the problem is not only hateful and ridiculous, it’s also just plain stupid.
