“Let’s make sure we’re protecting the intentionality of this space.”
This residence hall employee was apparently trying to keep the multicultural center as diverse as possible.

University residence hall employee on leave for saying ‘Don’t bring too many white students around’
A residence hall employee at the University of Wisconsin Madison is on paid leave after telling residents “Don’t bring too many white students around.”
University spokesperson Meredith McGlone said an investigation confirmed the allegations made against Chuefeng Yang of the Multicultural Learning Center for Witte Residence Hall. These indeed included students being told “to limit who they invite to visit them based on race.”
According to NBC-15, Yang, who uses plural pronouns, said they are “typically vocal about topics of race,” and added they view engaging in “uncomfortable” conversations on race as part of their “unofficial job description” as a “community leader.”
“I [sic] say things like ‘Don’t bring too many white students around,’” Yang said. “It’s not to say white students are not allowed here. But it’s just to say, ‘Let’s make sure we’re protecting the intentionality of this space.’”
From the story:
For Yang, a personal struggle with university officials revealed an even bigger problem.
“For so long, students of color on this campus have been begging and complaining and emailing and rioting and protesting for their needs to be met and yet for some reason, when five to six white students complain, all of a sudden it results in a person of color being removed from a space,” they said.
