If a university in this country were to allow a “white-only” organization or “white-only” dorm on campus, this would immediately be deemed racist and the school would be the next subject of a political fire storm. Allow something to be “black-only” and this double standard is deemed perfectly fine.
California State University in Los Angeles is the most recent public school to establish “black-only” co-ed housing. The university established the segregated housing after demands from the Black Student Union for the school to “establish a place for African American students to seek refuge from what they consider insensitive remarks and “microaggressions” from their white classmates,” according to Fox News.
The Black Student Union said the housing would “provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students,” read one of the union’s demands. “This space would also serve as a safe space for [black students] to congregate, connect, and learn from each other.”
Cal State LA spokesman Robert Lopez told The College Fix that the new residence hall, the “Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community,” “focuses on academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory.”
