A video has surfaced of a black female student telling a group of people at the University of Virginia that there were "too many white people" at the school's new Multicultural Student Center. She also said that as a person of color she was "uncomfortable" having so many white people in the center, which the school claims is open to "all members of the University community."

The student can be heard saying, "Public service announcement. Excuse me, if y’all didn’t know, this is the MSC, and frankly, there’s just too many white people in here."

She continued, "This is a space for people of color. So just be really cognizant of the space that you’re taking up, because it does make some of us POC’s uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here."
