Scripps College Hosts ‘No Whites Allowed’ Party: Open Bigotry on Campus

0 2,648

A federally funded college in California has approved of a student group that booked the campus pool facility to have a no-whites-allowed pool party that asked attendees to snitch on any white students that might try to sneak in and ruin everything.

The pool party event is being held with approval of Scripps college policy, but it might not jive with federal law, because the college receives federal funding. As such, they are bound to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which reads in part:

“Schools and colleges that receive federal funds must operate without discriminating when it comes to race, color, and national origin.”

Keep reading to see how the pool party event goes against this law.

Scripps Research Institute

With headquarters in San Diego and another facility in Florida. In all, they employ 2,400 staffers which makes the group one of the largest private, non-profit biomedical research groups in the world.

Scripps in Florida is associated with Florida Atlantic University’s medical school, and both the California and Florida campuses work with high school students and undergraduates with an interest in science.

The event was advertised for the Sallie Tiernan fitness facility’s 25 meter swimming pool. Like most gyms associated with a college, it is used by students and the families of faculty and staff. They offer the usual range of gym programs from cardio rooms to yoga and kickboxing.

‘First Ever POC Pool Party’

The Facebook event for this page is no longer available, but we do have a screen grab.

The event, entitled “DRIPPIN IN FINESSE’ intended to create a “safe space for… students that identify as POC to come together and build community.” The event was only open to “People of color” who attend Claremont Colleges, which includes Scripps and several nearby colleges. The time for the event was between 7pm and 10pm on Friday night.

According to the group’s Facebook page (also unavailable after media noticed), the club said that the event was “POC ONLYYYY.”

As well, there was a link posted by the Cafe group that will allow them to be warned if a white person might try to sneak in, saying that anyone could anonymously let them know “of people that would keep this experience from being a safe and comfortable one.”

Organized By ‘Latinx’ Group

The pool party was organized by the ‘Latinx’ group called “Café con leche,” which is the Spanish phrase for “coffee with milk.” The drink, which is half espresso and half scalded milk is similar to a latte and is extremely common in Latin America and other Hispanic communities as a breakfast staple.

 

According to an announcement made celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2013, the group has been around since 2003 and their anniversary was celebrated by the Office of Alumnae Relations and the Alumnae/Student Diversity Committee. From the event listing:

“The Alumnae/Student Diversity Committee is a group of alumnae volunteers dedicated to building relationships between alumnae and current students of color and in the LGBT Community.”

And then they give a longer explanation about the Cafe group itself (emphasis mine):

“Café Con Leche -We seek to provide a forum for the discussion of social, political and economic issues that affect women, particularly those of Latina descent at Scripps College. We intend to raise awareness of diversity and its implications for our students and the surrounding areas. We seek to be a resource and create a community for the Latinas on campus. We dedicate ourselves to social justice by developing a critical lens through which we can analyze ourselves and the world. We welcome all members of the Scripps community regardless of racial and cultural heritage to join us in this pursuit.”

Latinx? Latina?

In their 2013 event, the group was not yet using the made-up word “Latinx,” which is billed as a “gender neutral word” that surfaced around the year 2016.

The word “Latinx” is made-up nonsense that has no basis in grammar. It’s pronounce “La-TEEN-ex,” so now you know to avoid any person who says this out loud.

Anyway, the group has indeed updated their mandate to include this:

“[Café Con Leche will] provide a forum for the discussion of social, political, and economic issues that affect women, particularly those of Latinx decent.”

Just to reiterate, this is the FIRST mandate…
“[Café Con Leche will] to provide a forum for the discussion of social, political and economic issues that affect women, particularly those of Latina descent.”

And this is the current mandate.
“[Café Con Leche will] provide a forum for the discussion of social, political, and economic issues that affect women, particularly those of Latinx decent.”

Looks like the only difference between cultural club and racist club is the difference between using a real word (Latina) to a made-up term (Latinx).
