Minorities want to create their own “No Whites Allowed” spaces. Apparently, segregation is the new Civil Right.
A Huffington Post article titled, ‘Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People’.
The author, Aeman Ansari, argues that ethnic minorities have a right to claim public spaces to “share stories about discrimination without judgement and intrusion,” that is, judgement and intrusion by white people. She goes on that many students at Ryerson have experienced racism and that these spaces act as a forum where the ethnic students are protected from stereotypes and marginalization. Furthermore, she states that this is crucial in order to resist oppression.
I picture Ms Ansari standing outside a Black-Only student lounge shouting, “Segregation Now, Segregation Forever.”
I kind of thought there already were public spaces that had been entirely claimed by blacks from which Whites were excluded; the city of Detroit, for example.
