Students at Claremont McKenna College in California who are demanding a racially segregated “safe space” for “marginalized identities,” silenced and embarrassed an Asian woman when she described how she had been racially harassed by an African-American man.
The incident occurred yesterday during a protest against, “a lack of support from the Claremont McKenna College administration for students of color and others with marginalized identities.”
After numerous other students spoke about nebulous examples of racial discrimination, while refusing to allow white people to speak or (initially) use the megaphone, an Asian woman stepped forward to relate how she was an actual victim of racism.
The woman describes how she was walking down the street with three other Asian friends when a car pulled up and an African-American man shouted “go back to your home”. A “white lady” then parked her car near the young women to check if they were OK.
The woman says she was “shocked” and “scared” for her safety, before stating, “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 woman is immediately approached by a black female student who tries to stop the Asian woman from talking.
“Racism is prejudice with power,” yells another student, invoking the debunked progressive narrative that it’s impossible for black people to be racist.
Other students then claim what the woman is saying is irrelevant, while another student takes the megaphone from her.
The conversation continues off camera, with students arguing about whether or not black people can be racist.
The exchange is damning because it illustrates how the “safe space” students don’t really care about racism, they only care about race baiting and exploiting identity politics in order to obtain power via mob intimidation.
The Asian woman was clearly a victim of racial discrimination, but the other students shouted her down and embarrassed her because the incident couldn’t be blamed on the ‘evil white patriarchy’ – it didn’t fit their narrative.
It also underscores how social justice warriors don’t believe in equality, they believe in the oppression olympics, the warped narrative behind which asserts that it’s impossible for people of color to be racist.
On Wednesday, the students also staged a protest against a junior class president, who had already resigned the previous day, after she posted a photo on Facebook of herself posing with two women who were wearing (God forbid) sombreros, ponchos and mustaches for Halloween.
The original video in which the segment above appears is already receiving comments from people calling out the ‘safe spacers’ for their rampant hypocrisy.
“After she describes a blatant textbook definition of racism and then says “They were being racist”, everyone shudders and dismisses her. Wtf is wrong with people,” wrote one viewer.
“God fucking forbid you be objective about racism. Poor girl,” added another.
The incident occurred amidst a wave of condemnation over the behavior of students and a professor at the University of Missouri, who earlier this week imposed their “safe space” intolerance by physically assaulting journalists and calling for “muscle” to silence the First Amendment.
