At the Multicultural Center at the University of Virginia, a black woman got up and explained to the people sitting in it that there were too many whites among them.
Public service announcement. Excuse me. If y’all didn’t know, this is the MSC, and frankly there’s just too many white people in here and this is a space for people of color. So just be really cognizant of the space that you’re taking up, because it does make some of us POCs uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here. It’s only been open for four days, and frankly there’s the whole university for a lot of y’all to be at, and there’s very few spaces for us. So keep that in mind. Thank you.
It almost seems like they need to have a rule about how many white people are allowed to be in the room at a time. “Too many white people” is not really specific enough, is it?
I’m not going to say “what if the races were reversed?”, because we all know what would happen if a white person got up and said that there were too many blacks in a room. They would be banned from the university, doxed, threatened and prevented from working for the rest of their life.
Which makes her claim that there are “very few spaces for us” confusing. Where is a black woman not allowed to go at the University of Virginia, I wonder?
It is all truly so tiresome.
I understand that colored people – or “people of color,” as they apparently prefer to be called now – do not like being around white people. That is fine. That is their right. I don’t particularly like being around colored people – except for Asians.
But then we must ask: if blacks have no interest in being around white people, then why don’t they go somewhere else?
Black people literally have their own continent, which happens to have more resources than most of the rest of the world combined.
What excuse do they have for being here, feeding off of our productivity, using our universities and other services, while publicly insulting us and telling us to get out of our own buildings on our own university campus in our own country?
It would be one thing if they were nice to us, being on their best behavior, being grateful for everything we’ve done for them, and just saying “man, help a nigga out.” But that is actually the opposite of what is happening. These people are demonstrating absolute hatred for us, while making all of these various demands of wealth transfer.
Why don’t they just go home?
A Republican Congressman from Texas, Chip Roy, commented on the video, saying that people need to just forget about race because race doesn’t matter.
Hey, @UVa, this is what a “multicultural center” causes. More race-based thinking and segregating. One of many reasons I have not contributed to UVa in 20 years (which of course means not on the most-favored list). @LarrySabato @presjimryan https://t.co/5Wv4nYrY4h

We are well beyond the point where it doesn’t matter if Chip Roy thinks race matters. I believe that Chip Roy doesn’t think race matters. In the absolute sense of “racism,” conservatives are the least “racist” as they actually think they can just treat everyone the same and it will all work out.
But it isn’t working out. Republicans are begging blacks, “please, just let us treat you the same as everyone else!”, and blacks are saying “nah.”
The issue we are all dealing with at this point is not our own views on race, but the views of colored people on race. Colored people have very strong views on race, and they dislike white people for their race.
Continuing to try to tell black people that they don’t actually believe what they say they believe is not working, and it is time to move to protect white people from black people.
We need to bring back segregation.
From what I saw in this video, the blacks should be perfectly okay with that. They want their own spaces. So let’s give them their own spaces and get them out of our spaces, instead of continuing on with this “can’t we all just get along” failed reasoning.
