On Friday, June 1, 2012, several dozen students and civil rights activists participated in a BAMN-organized occupation of the UCLA admissions office to demand:

  • Double Latina/o, black and other underrepresented minority student enrollment
  • Admit more Latina/o, black, and other underrepresented minority students including some of the students we are submitting (on appeal).
  • Reopen the Appeals process to allow the more than deserving Latina/o, black, Native American and other underrepresented minority who have been denied once or twice already the chance to be reconsidered.

Below are some of the inspiring statements made during the occupation.

    BAMN is a racist organization. They fight for accepted racism and inequality. If you are denied something because of the merits of your character, accept it. “I have a dream that… they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King Jr. BAMN seeks to judge people based on their skin color, rather than their merits. You cannot claim to be the new civil rights movement when you defy the wishes and hopes of one of the most important civil rights proponents ever known to the earth. Wake up and see that you are racists in the face of true human equality.
