No Whites Allowed: College Students Insist It's Not Racist To...

In what appears to be a bizarre mirror image of pre-1964 black segregation, some minority students at Claremont Colleges in California are insisting "no whites allowed" when it comes to their dorm rooms and apartments.

The conservative Claremont Independent student newspaper is reporting that some students are insisting their roommates be "people of color only."

One student, Karé Ureña, explained it simply: "I don't want to live with any white folks."

Upon accusations of reverse racism, student AJ León insisted, “This is directed to protect POC [people of color], not white people. Don’t see how this is racist at all…. People of color are allowed to create safe POC only spaces. It is not reverse racism or discriminatory; it is self preservation.”

Another student, Nina Lee, made an argument that sounded contradictory, saying, “We don’t want to have to tiptoe around fragile white feelings in a space where we just want to relax and be comfortable. I could live with white people, but I would be far more comfortable living with other [people of color].”

Student Terriyonna Smith elaborated, saying, “White people [are] always mad when they don’t feel included, but at the end of the day y’all are damaging as [expletive]. And if a POC feels they need to protect themselves from that toxic environment, they can."

Black Student Union member Jessica Saint-Fleur explained, “White people have [caused] so much [expletive] trauma on these campuses … why in the world would I want to live with that? Bring that into my home? A place that is supposed to be safe for me?”

This is the America we're living in, folks.
