After the family moved to Oak Forest, Picciolini made his way through four high schools, including one where he organised a cafeteria sit-in of about a dozen students demanding a white student union
. After Picciolini assaulted a black student and a black security guard, the school obtained a restraining order that prohibited him from receiving his diploma with other graduates.
While Sutherlin and the rest of the Tinley Park Five sat in jail, their comrades found their next target: the newly formed White Student Union at Indiana University.
But less than a week after the White Student Union made its debut, a disturbing notice was posted on the group's Facebook page by its founder, an IU undergrad:
According to Heimbach's profile on (https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/individual/matthew-heimbach) the Southern Poverty Law Center , the white nationalist founded the White Student Union
at Towson University in Maryland, from where he graduated in 2013.
At one polar extreme, we find what anthropologist James Aho would call the racist Identity groups, encompassing, but not limited to, the Aryan Nations Church, the Covenant, Sword and the Arm of the Lord, the Knights of the KKK, the Mountain Church, the Socialist Nationalist Aryan Peoples Party, the White American Bastion, the White American Resistance, and the White Student Union
, attracting as well some Posse Comitatus, Liberty Lobby, and Barrister's Inn School of Common Law "constitutionalist" types (Aho, 19).
In a follow-up report published in 1992, he says "the role of right-wing and highly conservative organizations has been a somewhat understated dimension of campus ethnoviolence." In this section he lumps together the centrist National Association of Scholars and the conservative Madison Center for Educational Affairs with the White Student Union
. "These organizations function (sociologically) to provide the intellectual and moral justification for social inequalities," he explains.
