More Zerohedge here: A Marxist student group at Swarthmore College disbanded itself earlier this year after realizing that its members were too rich and too white to be real commies.

According to screenshots confidentially provided to Campus Reform by an individual with access to the group’s private Facebook page, the demise of the Swarthmore Anti-Capitalist Collective (SACC) came in the wake of a farewell letter from a member who had decided the group could never be an effective proponent of “unproblematized anticapitalist politics” due to its “history of abuse, racism, and even classism.” Thursday Humor? Marxist Student Group Disbands Because Members Were "Too Rich, Too White" (oh, not today's "Thursday Humor", but that from about a month back - don't try to keep up). As is much of the material on Zerohedge, this was taken from another site, Campus Reform, in this case - written by one Matthew Stein.

This is just to pile on with the Marxist theme from two posts back, but on a lighter note. Apparently, these guys felt guilty being in a student Commie club, due to their lack of diversity:

Let's take these white Commies down! Diversity for the Masses!

Peak Stupidity has been under the distinct impression that almost every one of the founders and useful idiots of yesteryears' Communism were white. Maybe we'll have to dig up some old .jpgs from Soviet Russia. Mao and Pol Pot were able to pull it off without a lot of diversity either - Communism all-Orient style. It's true that it might be hard to feel for the masses if you are one of the richies, like these student snowflakes at Swarthmore, but why didn't they think of that when they started the club?
“From my understanding SACC disbanded because they realized the makeup and tactics of their group was at odds with their espoused principles,” Swarthmore Conservative Society President Gilbert Guerra told Campus Reform.

“Their main support base was middle-upper class white kids who enjoy jogging.”
"Oh, jogging! I thought they said "logging", like cutting up firewood for heat all day long in Eastern Siberia, like real Commies. Jogging is for capitalists, I mean, unless Chairman Mao says otherwise."
