    WILL some of these special snowflakes demand the same thing from employers?

    hard to tell how true this is since fox and breitbart.com and a few other flake sources.

    It's not racist unless it's done by whites.

    ill-advised. best thing about dorms in college was meeting people from all over. apparently berkeley has done this which i don't agree with. seriously, there have been obnoxious people on our floor before. we just took it up with the RA and then the RD if it got serious. (most of the time we were just loud because of our epic table tennis tournaments) or if someone is really pissing you off, just avoid them.

    we will have to deal with different people eventually. better to get used to it, especially in a college environment where almost everyone is there for the same purpose

    This is sooo true its not even funny. Imagine an ALL-WHITE dorm or house on a College campus. Jessie Jackson and the Race Baiters would go completely bonkers. In a way, this could be a GOOD thing for those whites who would prefer not to be mixed in with obnoxious blacks.

    Agreed, there would be much wailing and gnashing of teeth if this was a white's only dorm.

    Well, it probably counts a being "truthy" - because the reality is that many Universities have set up dormitories that are specifically focused on ethnic and racial minorities.

    However, it's important to understand that these "themed" dormitory units do not explicitly discriminate on the basis of race. And that if an otherwise qualified white student applied to live in one of them, they would probably be accepted. (Note, I'm not sure this has ever been put to the test.)

    It's also important to understand that this is nothing particularly new. As this Los Angeles Times article notes:

    Would we feel differently if there was a dormitory housing unit focused on the "white community"? Yes. But for reasons that probably a bit more complicated and nuanced that can easily be understood or discussed.

    Did someone set Wayback Machine for the 1950's? Millions fought/protested to end segregation and now their grandkids and great grandkids are throwing it all away.:mad::mad::mad: What next? Bringing back separate water fountains?:rolleyes:

    They should be given their own drinking fountains. And space at the rear of buses. Oh and add their own sections at lunch counters.


    What could go wrong?
