Debate flares after black college students seek a non-white roommate

Three African American college roommates in Southern California have sparked a debate over their specific search for a fourth roommate that was  “POC” only, a common abbreviation for people of color. Their college is reportedly 48% White, 15% Hispanic and 5% African American.

What’s your take? Is this a case of reverse racism?

Cannot be justified either way IMHO
