California College Announces ‘No Whites’ Swimming Party

A college in California has approved a swimming party that no white students will be allowed to attend. The organizers intend for the event to help “build community” among the school’s minorities, the College Fix reports.

Scripps College, an institution situated in Claremont, California, is hosting a pool party at the school’s Sallie Tiernan Field House, where only “people who identify as “POC” will be allowed to attend.

POC stands for “persons of color.”

The event’s Facebook post notes that the party will be hosted by a student group called Café Con Leche, a group that claims to be the “the badass Latinx at Scripps.”

“Bring your chanclas and the homies over to our nice ass resort pool, LET’S TAKE UP SPACE,” the announcement says adding that the event is “a safe space for…students that identify as POC to come together and build community.”

The announcement advises students to help identify those who should be banned and to use “an anonymous Google form to notify us of people we should keep out!”

The school’s newspaper, the Claremont Independent, spoke to a student representing the segregated event who insisted that they are “inclusive” despite banning white people from attending the event.

“Most POCs at any of the Claremont Colleges (which are historically PWIs (Predominantly White Institutions)) interact and enjoy interacting with people of all races (obviously including white people), but sometimes it’s nice to have a time to be with people who identify in the same or similar way that you do,” the student exclaimed.

Still, despite the mixed messages, the Independent noted that the banning of white students could cause the school to run afoul of federal law.

“Even if the event is in accordance with Scripps College policy, it may run afoul of federal law. Because Scripps College receives federal assistance, it is bound by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” the student news site wrote.

      typical racist response. White people have been doing this for years but now you want to act like you never heard of anything so outrageous.

        Baloney Cleo. This type of segregation has been federally banned for over 50 years. Just remember, Cleo, that racism IS a TWO way street (Malcolm X was dead wrong). Careful what you wish for as it may come back to haunt you when “people of color” just might not be welcomed to a “White’s only function” Imagine that? .

        Really? What about the Black Miss America and the black colleges? We’d never be able to do that. This whites only separation ended in the 50’s.

      Oh, but there’d be hell to pay if we did that. There’s Miss Black American, Black colleges, but whoa if the whites did something like that. Unbelievable.

    Estos son los verdaderos “racistas y acomplejados” no tienen cabida en ningun lugar. Las personas sensatas no creo que deseen compartir con estos autosegregados.

    People who “Identify as People of Color” my ass. Either you is or you ain’t. You can change your “identity” as often as mood swings. Get a grip, people. Join the “real” world. Once out of college, you will be forced to.

    Well, Well, Am i hearing this right? People of Color does not include the Color White because it’s not a Col or. Well just when is a color not a color? Just when it’s White and people of Color are having a P.O.C. Pool Party, an event, if this event, Pool Party was hosted by just White people of the Color White, we would be called Raciest and a few other names. I wounder if these P.O.C. have no Friends that are People with no Color? The Color White.
