only whites can be racist

Black college students could never be racist.

Because black people can never be racist.

Only whites can be racist. At least that is what I have been told for all these past years.

Yet here we have some proof that that just isn’t so.

Black students demand ability to select roommates based on race. 

Now, I understand that black kids would be more comfortable rooming with another black kid. They’d feel more comfortable with someone of similar culture.

Yet if a WHITE kid said that he’d prefer a white roommate…well now, that is, of course, racist.

Funny how that works, innit?
