Facebook yanks ‘White Student Union’ page at UC Berkeley

A Facebook page created over the weekend claiming to represent a “White Student Union” at UC Berkeley has been removed by the social media company after it found that the page creator had used a fake name.

The page, which angered some students and prompted condemnation from Chancellor Nick Dirks and Vice Chancellor Na’ilah Nasir, was similar to postings claiming to be for clubs for white students at 75 college campuses across the country. Among them were UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara and Cal State Fullerton.

The pages said the campus clubs were open to “students of European descent.”

Some of the pages defended slavery and criticized Jews. The fake UC Berkeley page said the supposed White Student Union was intended to create “a safe space for white students to air their true feelings about the future of our nation” and decried the “invasion and degradation of the lands, institutions, and cultural heritage that are rightly ours.”
