A group of students at the Claremont Colleges in search of a roommate insist that the roommate not be white.
Student Karé Ureña (PZ ’18) posted on Facebook that non-white students in need of housing arrangements should reach out to either her or two other students with whom she plans to live in an off-campus house. The post states that “POC [people of color] only” will be considered for this living opportunity. “I don’t want to live with any white folks,” Ureña added.
Claremont students refuse to live with whites
But wait it gets better
“People of color are allowed to create safe POC only spaces. It is not reverse racism or discriminatory, it is self preservation [sic],” Sara Roschdi (PZ ’17), another Pitzer Latino Student Union member, stated. “Reverse racism isn’t a thing.”
Well she's right, there is no reverse racism, there is only racism. It doesn't seem they care much about segregation.
Now let's just imagine Whitey Whitegirl posting a listing that said "Coloreds need not apply"
We all know what the reaction and the repercussion would be...
