White students called 'racist' for 'Police Lives Matter' sticker at Arizona State Uni
A video that has gone viral on the Internet shows two women accusing two White students at Arizona State University of being 'fascists and racists'
Two White students on Arizona State University's campus were confronted by two female students over a 'Police Lives Matter' sticker on a computer. The women were heard telling the students that the sticker was "racist" and that they needed to leave the space, according to the video which has gone viral on the Internet. One of the women involved in the incident who was also recording the video asked, "You're offensive. Police lives matter?" The video has raked over a million views on Twitter alone.
In the past, we have reported on race-related incidents happening on educational campuses. For instance, in June five seniors from a tiny high school in rural Pennsylvania, Montgomery Area High School, wore matching "White Lives Matter" t-shirts on the last day of school. In another incident white kids belonging to affluent backgrounds were told to avoid Ivy League schools to make place for students of color by a Dallas-based social group.

In the initial minutes of the seven-minute-long video, the women are heard calling out the male students for being offensive with the 'Police Lives Matter' sticker and the message 'Didn't vote for Biden' on one of their t-shirts'. The student wearing the anti-Biden t-shirt also appeared to have been recording the exchange and was heard saying, "We've got a Police Lives Matter sticker and we're getting kicked out. Can’t do school."
One of the female students replied they were not asking them to leave but the sticker was making them "uncomfortable" in a "multicultural space". One of them told the White students, "You're white, do you understand what a multicultural space is? It means you're not being centered." The student with the anti-Biden shirt retorted, "White's not a culture?" and received a winded reply from one of the students who were filming. "White is not a culture, say it again to the camera, you think whiteness is a culture. This is the violence that ASU does and this is the type of people that they protect. Okay, this white man thinks he can take up our space. And this is why we need a multicultural space because they think they can get away with this sh*t," one of them said giving out that the incident was happening at Arizona State University.
Explaining why the sticker was racist, the student said, "You are racist. Your sticker’s racist because police, that's a job, you can choose to be a police. I didn't choose to be black. You can choose to be a cop. You can choose to kill people with a badge and you're protecting that sh*t, which means that you're racist." One of them even said the whole campus was centered around Whites and the place where this video was filmed was the only multicultural space. They seemed offended over the fact that Whites were taking up space in a multicultural space.
The students said, "Police Lives Matter was affiliated with white nationalists." The debate continued for another couple of minutes and then facing the camera to themselves, one of the students explained, "We fought for this space, it was years of organizing, and we are not going to let some white supremacists change that." The White students were heard saying at one point that they were going to report the incident to the Dean. ASU has yet to provide a comment. Watch the full video here.
