Immigrant Asian student BOOED in ‘safe space’ after saying blacks can be racist too

asian-demonstratorDuring a demonstration at California’s Claremont McKenna College, students silenced and embarrassed an Asian student who suggested that people should be viewed as individuals, and yes, even black people can be racist.

A “safe space” was set up by the students where “marginalized identities” would be free to tell their stories.

Only things got uncomfortable for an Asian student who was met with groans and boos for her personal take on racism.

The student, who’d arrived in the United States five years ago, described an incident where an African American man harassed her for poor language skills. She explained that she was later comforted by a white woman.

“The point I am making here is that we should not distinguish people by their race, or their gender or anything,” she said. “Black people can be racist.”

At that point she was approached by a black student holding a sign saying, “It is too late today sorry.”

Things went downhill from there.

Watch the clip.

Social media also took note.

Incidentally, after the demonstration, Claremont McKenna’s dean resigned.
