DAILYKENN.com -- Claremont College students-of-color are hell-bent on teaching racist white folks a lesson: By discriminating against whites, they will teach whites what discrimination and stereotyping is like through experience.
The method? Students of color are refusing to room with white students.
Student Karé Ureña advertised for “POC [people of color] only” when seeking roommates.
Dalia Zada (PZ ’18) expressed concerns to the anti-white discrimination. “‘POC only?’ Maybe I’m missing something or misunderstanding your post, but how is that not a racist thing to say?”• The intent seems to be less on discriminating against whites than teaching whites a lesson: What it's like to be excluded and to be stereotyped.
“This is directed to protect POC, not white people. Don’t see how this is racist at all…” responded AJ León (PZ ’18), a member of the Pitzer Latino Student Union.
“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.”
“We don’t want to have to tiptoe around fragile white feelings in a space where we just want to relax and be comfortable,” commented Nina Lee, a Women’s Studies major. “I could live with white people, but I would be far more comfortable living with other poc.”
“White people always mad when they don’t feel included but at the end of the day y’all are damaging asf [sic] and if a POC feels they need to protect themselves from that toxic environment THEY CAN! Quick to try to jump on a POC but you won’t call your friends out when they’re being racist asf [sic],” noted Terriyonna Smith (PZ ’18), an Africana Studies major and Resident Assistant (RA) for the 2016-2017 year. “I’m not responding to NO comments and NOPE I don’t wanna have a dialogue.”
• The students-of-color seem to be unaware that people innately prefer the company of like individuals. Teens hang out with teens and seniors tend to prefer the company of other seniors. East Asians prefer the company of each other as do other people groups.
The phenomenon is not exclusively white. In fact, the ten most segregated cities in America are predominately black. Hawaii, on the other hand — the nation's most diverse state — has very few blacks; about 1.6 percent of its population.
