Contemplating "Heritage" and "Identity"

The founder of a white student union at a school in Georgia has a history of hate speech.

Patrick Sharp, the 18-year-old freshman who recently started Georgia State University's unofficial white student union, has made racially charged comments on popular white supremacist website Stormfront.org, which lists him as a "sustaining member."

Using the aliases "frozenpie77" and "sportline," Sharp refers to blacks by epithets such as "niggs" and "darkies" and advocates for re-segregating public schools. In more than one forum on the site -- which has been banned in multiple countries for hateful content -- Sharp recommends that blacks who act aggressively should be beaten up.

He also makes derisive comments about Muslims, Mexicans and Jews, who he argues committed worse crimes than the Holocaust. All of the remarks were made within the past 18 months.

When HuffPost reached out to Sharp for comment, he said: "Looking back, being online in the company of racially insensitive individuals has taught me one very important lesson: how to spot them. My most important goal with the [white student union] is to guard it from hot heads, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and anyone with nefarious intent. The WSU is no place for bigots of any kind. We're about heritage and identity; two things that everyone else is allowed to be proud of--why can't we?"

Oh, whatever.

Hate it to break it to you, Frozen Pie, but your current heritage and identity were borne of "nefarious intent" - and actions - so it ain't exactly shocking that you went from being a white supremacist to forming a white student union.  The two kinda go hand in hand...like white bread and mayonnaise.

Whatever. Are we really caring about people like this in 2013?  By all means, if they get up in your personal space, pimp-slap them back to colonial times, but come on...really?  Are we really surprised that this mediocre-looking twig is a supremacist?  A face like that just screams "inferiority complex".

  1. Hee Hee! I guess Mr. Sharpe think that his presence will scare the Black and other POC students there.Dude must not us very well. Ill start the clock to see how long hell be at GSU. I have a strange feeling they'll run him from there.

    I just love how people like him try to bring up the excuse of POC s have their own student group. Here is my thing with Sharpe... there are White people who say they are proud to be that: They are Italian, Britis,Polish, or other descendants of Europe and I wouldn't be offended by them if they did create. Heck, I don't even care if theyare proud to be White Southern Rednecks (the extremely country ones,not the racist) because it's about being proud of your culture, yourself and wanting to make sure those things are passed on to be maintained by the next generation. As a black American, I feel the same.

    Who does Mr.Sharpe think he's fooling. His idea of White Pride isn't so much about the love of and cultureas it is about White supremacy and attempted intimidation. If he must know the difference between his idea of the purpose of POC/national/religious/gay groups opposed to Mr.Sharpe's, it is the idea of the of love of ones love of himself, community and others. That is what he don't get.

    1. Well, since so many black Americans have white ancestors, maybe some of the kids on the black student union should join the WSU to celebrate that part of their heritage. I mean, people tend to hate when biracial people call themselves black b/c it supposedly "ignores" part of their heritage so maybe we should ALL start embracing and celebrating the white branches of our family trees...
      As you said, this guy is full of it b/c every black student group/organization I've ever been a part of it has always had non-black members. There are people who are always threatened when more than 2 black people meet up but yeah, since we know you dont' have to be black or Asian or Latino to join many of the affinity clubs started by people from those backgrounds (so for example, at my job, I participate in activities with the Asian and Asian American employees b/c they have the funding and numbers to get good events), then you should onot have to be 100% white to be in the WSU.
      I think a BIG pack of black students should go there.

  2. Okay. Really, Patty?

    You can not go from white supremacist one moment and say that you do not embrace that mindset the next while trying to pathetically cover your own ass with that weak-ass statement saying, "...Being online in the company of racially insensitive individuals has taught me one very important lesson: how to spot them. My most important goal with the [white student union] is to guard it from hot heads, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and anyone with nefarious intent."

    That is bullshit, Patty. You know damn well those Neo-Nazis and hot heads are the type of people you want in your organization. You want a White Student Union that's a front for another skinhead-like cult. That's the truth. You ain't fooling no one, Patty. LOL

    White pride can not exist without the destruction and degradation of nonwhites. It's no different from bullying. They need to put us down to make themselves feel good. And I think he's too white to know what white love truly is and what it requires. No. He's still thinking like a dickheaded white supremacist.
