As though we didn't have enough proof already of just how extremely racism people of color have become, we get another video demonstrating just how bad it really is.
On a college campus, two non-white women approached two white guys studying quietly and starting harassing and screaming at them. Why? Partly because of his "Police Lives Matter" sticker and partly because they were apparently in a room where white people aren't allowed.
Holy shit. @ASU allows extremists to berate people because "your white"? https://t.co/HcJsF01u3M

Arizona State University released a statement about the incident:
"The Dean of Students Office is aware of the disagreement between a handful of students that was captured in a video circulated on social media. The Dean of Students Office will be discussing it with all involved. ASU is a community of more than 100,000 people from all 50 states and more than 150 countries. Differences of opinion are part of the university experience. The university expects respectful dialogue between students in all engagements."
That's literally all that they said. No condemnation of the piss-poor behavior and attitude of the girls complaining about white people being in black people seating.
A better statement came from one of the young men being harassed:
"Each of us has the right to our own beliefs and to express them through constructive and non-threatening discourse. I do not know the experiences of those who confronted me, and I am devastated that this misunderstanding is being highlighted by others in a way that perpetuates the continued racial divide in this country. I hope that what transpired can instead be a springboard for a constructive and collaborative discussion about issues that have for too long divided us so that we can all come together as instruments for meaningful change. I support good people of all colors, creeds, and religions and support those who want to end racial and social injustice. I am a student. My only desire is to study hard, work hard and complete my studies at Arizona State University. I am cooperating with the University's investigation into this incident and I have faith in that process."
People are absolutely mad. This is racism. They want to complain about white people being racist because a sticker says police lives matter which does not imply racism in any form or fashion, yet their too stupid and blind to see that they are literally being racist by trying to force segregation.
For goodness sakes, this is what was going on in the mid-20th century when Martin Luther King Jr. was fighting for equality. We had white school, white restaurants, white water fountains, and that was UNEQUIVOCALLY CONDEMNED!
But fast forward to 2021 and the shoe is on the other foot and we're just repeating history once again.
Truth will prevail, but we don't know how long that will take.
I could say more, but I'll blow a gasket if I continue on.
