Following up on JVW’s post about the latest news out of Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, comes this: an Asian student standing in the designated “safe space”, had the unmitigated gall to discuss the need to judge people by the content of their character and suggested that black people, like any other group of people, can be racist, too:
The woman told a story about how she was discriminated upon when she first came to the U.S. for her trouble speaking English. She recalled a moment a black man once told her to “go back to your home.” She said a “white lady” then checked on her to make sure she was OK.
“The point I’m making here is we should not distinguish people by their race or gender or anything. Black people can be racist!” the student said.
Almost immediately, a black female student confronts her and seemingly tries to stop her from talking as audible groans and murmurs are heard in the background.
“I just mean that we have to look at people individually,” the Asian student continues as the students turn against her.
Eventually another student takes the megaphone from the Asian student who leaves the “safe space” appearing a bit distraught.
