It’s come to this: If you have white skin, you are persona non grata. If on top of that you dare to support the police for risking their lives every time they go out on a call, then you are “offensive” and deserve to be ostracized.

That was the decree handed down to two students at Arizona State University (ASU) by another who felt they had violated her space — which happened to be the school’s “multicultural center.”

A video of the confrontation follows. In it one of the two “offending” students is wearing a t-shirt captioned “I did not vote for Biden,” while the other has a sticker reading “Police matter” affixed to the outside of his laptop.

Among the more ridiculous assertions by the accuser, who is evidently “of color,” is that “white is not a culture.” According to an apparently like-minded writer at The Guardian, “white” is not a distinct culture in the U.S. because the majority of the population is white. So by that definition, in 2045, by which year Hispanics and Asians are projected to comprise the majority of the U.S. population, both demographics will cease to be cultures and “white” will be elevated to one.

Returning to the accuser in the ASU story, at one point she argues that the two white students are “taking up our space.” But at various points her own recording reveals that this dispute is taking place in a rather large room with plenty of empty chairs and work stations.

What the story really boils down to is this: The accuser is a racist who also denies the protections afforded by the First Amendment. This is why we cannot have nice things.
