Often times white people are portrayed as the only people who are racist.
In fact, white people are portrayed as everything bad; racist, sexist, intolerant, stupid, etc. But that's obviously not true. Yes, there are some white people who are all of those things, but racism knows no color.
In my experience, and I'm being dead serious, I've noticed that black people seem to be more racist than white people as a whole. It's not that they just flat out speak against white people to their face so make a racist remark to them. More often then not it's the things like assuming that all Trump supporters are racist.
However, there are those who are just stupid and will be racist right to your face. Sometimes they don't even realize how racist they are being. Such is the case with a student at the University of Virginia.
The female student entered into the Multicultural Center on the campus and tried to kick all the white people out because there were too many of them there.
“Public service announcement. If y’all didn’t know, this is the MSC, and, frankly, there’s just too many white people in here, and this is a space for people of color, so, just be really cognizant of the space that you’re taking up because it does make some of us POCs uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here. There’s a whole university for a lot of y’all to be at, and there’s very few spaces for us, so keep that in mind.”
Now, for a moment, imagine the script flipped on this incident and that it was a white man telling a group of black people, "there are too many black people in this room and you all are making me uncomfortable. This room is for whites only. If you want to sit somewhere, go somewhere else because you're not welcome here."

Can you imagine the outrage that would ensue if that happened?
One important thing I noted is that the woman said that white people have the whole University, and there are few spaces for people of color to be at. Why does she think that they can't be on the rest of the campus? Why do they need their own area? Aren't we supposed to be tearing down the racial divide? All this does is further it more and keeps them enslaved to themselves.
