So-called progressives are actually moving us backwards.
The College Fix reports:
Students of color allowed ‘safe space’ without white males at Pomona College
A Students of Color Alliance lounge that requires students fill out a form listing what identity-based group they belong to before being granted electronic ID card swipe access to the venue has been established at an elite private college in Southern California.
Pomona College administrators approved the swipe-access decision in November to address student protests after easy access to the lounge had been somewhat restricted for a few years due to COVID-related occupancy rules, The Student Life reported Dec. 2.
The Students of Color Alliance posted on its Instagram page Nov. 28 that “Previously, there was no standardized process for granting swipe access to the lounge, which limited the use of the space as it was intended. Moving forward, there will be a google form that students of color can fill out to request swipe access to the space.”
The recently published online Google form to request swipe access hosted by the Students of Color Alliance asks applicants to provide their name, email, student ID, and the name of the affinity group they are affiliated with, if any.
The online form does not explicitly state white males are not allowed, but “it goes without saying,” said a campus source who asked to remain anonymous in an email to The College Fix, adding they “thought excluding people from access based on their race was illegal.”
Patricia Vest, Pomona’s senior director of communications, told The College Fix: “Per our policy, student spaces at Pomona College are open to all students.”
She did not respond to a follow up question asking whether white males would feel welcome in the lounge and who approves the swipe-card access requests.
