Racism At Berkeley: Student Co-Op Housing Bans Whites From Common Areas

In what I consider to be a slap in the faces of the Civil Rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., who famously said during a speech at our nation’s capitol that people should be judged by their character, not color, is that some of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren are those who are now discriminating, this time against their white neighbors and fellow citizens.

The civil rights movement was a political movement from 1954 to 1968 in the United States to abolish institutional racial segregation, discrimination, and disenfranchisement throughout the United States.

Through the efforts of many people, including those with white skin, the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Congress addressed their concerns, making segregation illegal.

On May 17, 1954, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren delivered the unanimous ruling in the landmark civil rights case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. State-sanctioned segregation of public schools was a violation of the 14th amendment and was therefore unconstitutional

Some of the southern Democrats tried to stop the laws from being enforced, including Alabama Governor George Wallace.

In 1964, Congress passed; The Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Provisions of this civil rights act made all discrimination on the basis of sex, as well as, race in hiring, promoting, and firing illegal.

Another main issue that the civil rights groups used the new laws to address, was the rampant discrimination against black Americans in obtaining housing.

Following was a flyer circulated around Detroit during this period.

On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which was a follow-up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The 1968 Act expanded on previous acts and prohibited discrimination concerning housing sale, rental, and financing based on race, religion, national origin, sex, (and as amended) handicap, and family status. Title VIII of the Act is also known as the Fair Housing Act (of 1968).

“Housing discrimination is illegal in nearly all housing, including private housing, public housing, and housing that receives federal funding.”

A Berkeley co-op is openly banning only WHITE PEOPLE from common areas to ‘avoid white violence and presence’ and all students trying to sign in are asked to declare their race

An off-campus co-op for students at the University of California, Berkeley named the ‘Person of Color Theme House’ has banned white guests from entering common areas of the house.

The accommodation houses University of California, Berkeley students and has rules that specifically ban ‘white people’ from common spaces in the house

The Person of Color Theme House says many of its members moved to the house to avoid ‘white violence’

It also calls for members to avoid bringing ‘parents/family members that express bigotry’

Several people, including POC, have complained of a ferocious culture in the house that seeks to exclude and belittle

The accommodation, which is located close to Berkeley’s campus, is a five-story, 30-room home that can house up to 56 students

A list of house rules revealed that occupants were told ‘many POC moved here to be able to avoid white violence and presence, so respect their decision of avoidance if you bring white guests.’

While the student house aims to have an ‘inclusive’ environment, the rules specifically state ‘white guests are not allowed in common spaces,’ according to the list, which was posted on Reddit.

But the ‘rules’ which were leaked on social media have caused outrage – with many people slamming the restrictions as ‘racist’ as others came forward and revealed their experience living in the co-op.

One mixed-race Reddit user, who claimed to have lived at the house, said that their ‘presence as a light-skinned person was not received well.’

They said house members called them slurs and they were even ‘not allowed to let my dad enter the house because he’s white.’

This story is not unique as many public-funded universities are now conducting graduations, by race or sexual preference, and students are demanding housing on Campus specifically for them, in effect re-segregating people.

Here is one example:

UC Santa Cruz agrees to all demands from the black student group:

1) “Similar to EOP students and International students’ housing guarantees, we demand that ALL African Black Caribbean identified students have a 4 year housing guarantee to live in the Rosa Parks African American Themed House. Guaranteeing this would provide a viable living option to all (Afrikan/Black/Caribbean) identified students regardless of housing status and college affiliation. We demand a written agreement by the opening of housing applications in April 2017.”
