A private college in California will be hosting a pool party later today at which white people will be excluded, with only "people who identify as POC" permitted to attend. "POC" stands for "person of color." The event will take place at Scripps College's Sallie Tiernan Field House pool, according to The Claremont Independent.
Update: The party organizers changed the rules and all college students were allowed to attend:
After the Independent reported that event organizers segregated tonight's pool party at Scripps College, barring white students from attending, the organizers changed their event's description to allow all students regardless of race at the Claremont Colleges -- a consortium consisting of Scripps College, Pomona College, Harvey Mudd College, Claremont McKenna College, and Pitzer College -- to attend the pool party hosted at the college's Sallie Tiernan Field House.
