A registered student club at Scripps College in Claremont, California has organized a pool party for students! Great news right? Well the club, Cafe con Leche, has one tiny rule in order to keep the party safe from those that may be more priviledged. You damn whites aint allowed! Yes, this pool party is for "non-whites," and as the Facebook invitation claims it'll be "POC ONLYYYY."
Note: apparently POC stands for people of color, which seems obvious but was unknown to me.
There are so many issues with this I dont even know where to begin. First of all, since this is a student club running the party, the school should be shutting this nonsense down. Scripps College obtains federal funding according to the Claremont Independent, which means that they would need to abide by the Civil Rights Act, which states that "schools and colleges that receive federal funds must operate without discriminating when it comes to race, color, and national origin."
So right there it seems this would be categorized as borderline unlawful, but certainly unethical behavior if the party is allowed to continue. Just in case the school needed more evidence pointing to the fact that this is racial discrimination they're allowing, I'd like to now admit the schools own policy into evidence!
“Scripps College is committed to a policy of equal opportunity, and no differentiation will be made based on race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, or the presence of a disability.”
Now this is not an isolated incident when it comes to Scripps College demonstrating just how radically left they really are. The Claremont Independent reports that back in February a student group attempted to host conservative commentator Andrew Klavan at the school. The school responded with the answer of "there are no dates available." An administrator at the events office later told the group that the excuse was not necessarily true. The real reason was the political status of the speaker.
We see this alot nowadays, and we see this in the majority of colleges and universities. Whether it's DePaul University banning Ben Shapiro, or the University of California (Berkeley) turning away Milo Yiannopoulos, the radical steps taken by the leaders of these school borders on totalitarianism. Our children are being taught one way of thinking, and are suppressed if their views are in any way contrary. Passion and respect in debate and difference are gone, so here we go. Our world will now go back in time, only now segregation is cool and hip. You're only allowed to support certain social movements, and need to conform to the views of the majority populous. If you don't, then you will be chastised and lose out on opportunities granted to those that conformed. Also you need to turn in all your weapons to the government. Once you do that, you'll be given your uniform which includes a safety pin, pink vagina hat, Black Lives Matter shirt, and Hillary Clintons book......
This is our new reality.
