Where There's a Will...

If I were a student at her school, I would have been the second name on this petition. I fully endorse and support what she is doing. But, my main question is: Why is this a story? The Negros have their club, the brownskins have theirs, even the natives (Indians) have a club of their own in some schools. I think it is about time that white-skins show some pride!

Girl Wants To Start Caucasian Club At High School

OAKLEY, Calif. -- Lisa McClelland says she isn't a racist. She says her campaign for a Caucasian Club at her California high school is a move toward diversity, not bigotry.

She says everyone is invited -- and nobody will be excluded.

McClelland's ethnic background includes American Indian, Hispanic, Dutch, German, Italian and Irish. She says she and her friends feel slighted by other clubs at Freedom High School in Oakley, such as the Black Student Union and the Asian Club.

McClelland says she's collected 245 signatures of support from students, adults and others since announcing her plans three weeks ago.

One person who won't be signing up is Darnell Turner, first vice president of the local chapter of the NAACP. Turner says he thinks the club will create racial tension.

My comment to Mr. Turner is this: And you think that your club doesn't cause racial tension? Why is it okay for the blacks and browns to represent, but not the whites? Would someone pose these q's to him, please? I demand honest and fair answers! Is that too much to ask?
