UMich students demand no-whites-allowed space to plot ‘social justice’ activism

University Michigan students are demanding the campus provides a 'No whites allowed' kind of safe space. They claim this is so they can plot social justice activism in what one can only imagine to be radical action against whites.
This is truly disturbing to many including myself because of the blatant racial intent being overtly banded around.
Imagine the furore that would create had this been white students requesting a 'whites only' area?
The article reads as follows;

A student activist group at the University of Michigan is demanding campus officials provide them with “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.”

The demand is one of several lodged by “Students4Justice,” who this month ratcheted up campus demonstrations to pressure administrators to cave, complaining in a newly launched petition that President Mark Schlissel has snubbed their demands.

The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public university builds a $10 million center for black students in the center of campus.

In their demands, students explain why the new black student center is not enough, “because we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color.”
