Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers, calling for “safe spaces” on campuses meant only for so-called students of color.

The requests for segregated spaces are found among some of the demand lists put forth by students who took part in protests this fall alleging their campuses are oppressive, discriminatory, and represent institutionalized racism.

At UCLA, the Afrikan Student Union is insisting upon an “Afrikan Diaspora floor” as well as an “Afro-house.”

“Black students lack spaces where they feel safe and comfortable,” the UCLA demands state. “The Afrikan Diaspora floor is a way for us to connect more to other Black students, the Afrikan Student Union, and the Afro-Am department. The floor should be branded as a safe space for all Black students.”

White people don't need safe spaces because there is not a racism problem with white people, black people might want a safe place so crackers like you don't come in when they're tryna discuss racism and start being like "omg u so racist"

I mean... This is not the way to achieve a happy, harmonious campus where race is not an issue, is it?

Nice to see the regressives are taking over college campuses. I thought debate was the way forward not segregation

It's more that to me, when the ideal situation seems to be educating and attempting to eradicate discriminitory behaviour such as racism, locking yourself away and saying 'la la la I can't hear you' is silly, immature, and will only perpetuate the shitty situation the world is in for generations to come.
#17
It's very much the sort of response Tumblr would think is appropriate.


Which means it's utterly the wrong way to handle it.

#18
nah yeah that seems reasonable

black people at universities getting together in a room without white people for a change, discussing and exploring their experiences of whiteness and racism for like 20 minutes...

seems like the only likely outcome of such a silly, immature idea is that they will perpetuate racism. Silly black people, they just won't stop making people racist will they?
#19
That's not the point,

By locking themselves away in a room to decompress and complain about racism, they do far less than empowering themselves. The world isn't a pretty place, but no problem has ever been solved by locking yourself in a room and sulking about it.

They aren't making people racist. They are on the other hand making it easy for people to continue to be racist and are doing a great job of leaving themselves utterly unprepared for the real world.
#21
yeah exactly

i mean if black people don't solve racism, who will? frankly i think they shouldn't be allowed to take any breaks from it and should be forced to confront it 24/7. i'm 100% sure every black person wants to spend all their time trying to bring down racism, what else are they doing with their time?
#22
Rab, if not confronting racism at any given second is the standard, how often do you make it easy for people to be racist?
#23
I don't like where this is discussion is headed, I'm off to my safe space.

Bye.

Are you dense?

Let's look at some inspiring women, Amelia Earhart, Susan B. Anthony, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.....look at all the things they did and the things they acheived. None of it was done hiding in a room crying about how unfair the world is.

Every black person has to be MLK. You'd have to be a pathetic human being to not be able to deal with perpetual racism and want to have a fukn rest from it. Idk who these people think they are that they think they can sit on a sofa for a second with some people going through the same stuff and talk. Every black person must dedicate their lives to being anti-racist activists or frankly i think they're dumb.

I'm feeling oppressed, I'm going to my safe room where I can pretend the big, bad world doesn't exist.

At the end of the day, the problem isn't solved.

Next time you have a shit day at work you have to bring down capitalism before you're allowed to go home, fair m8?
#32
Again, not the point,

If I have a shit day at work, I tell my boss about it, we discuss ways in which it could be improved (if any) and go from there.

I don't lock myself in my office and whinge about how mean people are.

EDIT: My point isn't that people have to save the world with their actions, but by taking actions to "Pad themselves in cotton wool", it actually does nothing to diminish the real problem.

This idea of perpetual racism is idiotic. It just doesn't happen. There are racist instances and you don't deal with them by segregating. These students are being racist themselves.

lol okay

so you have a problem with someone at work. you go see someone to devise a plan as to how to best deal with it, in private, away from the person who is causing you a problem.

wow nice safe space bro

What?

Who said I had a problem with any particular person? Maybe I think a work process is inadequate to our business needs? And who said the person I have a problem with is never involved? If I have a problem with a colleague, thankfully I've got the confidence to call them out on their crap.

The only safe space I need is in the breakroom, so I can devour my lunch without causing too much damage

Well, if people paid attention to Poland, they'd know that they elected an extreme right wing party in with a puppet 25 year old president who is currently dismantling the Polish constitution.

But no. nobody seems to be giving a toss about that.
