Contemplating "Heritage" and "Identity"
The founder of a white student union at a school in Georgia has a history of hate speech.Oh, whatever.
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?" (Source)
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".
