The anti-white mania which has gripped contemporary society has been illustrated once again with the news that the University of Arizona Faculty Senate has unanimously opposed the scrapping of Mexican “ethnic studies” as envisioned by that state’s House Bill 2281.
According to a press release issued after the meeting, the UA faculty senate said that the measure to do away with Mexican ethnic studies at schools and universities is “disturbing and distasteful” and “sends the wrong message to Arizona and its students.”
One can only wonder if the UA faculty senate would have been quite so eager to support “European ethnic studies” in the same way.
The UA faculty senate also formally endorsed “Ethnic Studies Week” which will run from October 1–7 and encouraged “all faculties to lend their support and participation by whatever means possible.”
H.B. 2281, also known as the “Ethnic Studies Law,” forbids teaching courses that are “designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group” or advocating the “overthrow of the U.S. government or resentment toward a race or class of people.”
It effectively banned ethnic studies in Arizona K12 schools, including the Mexican American Studies program that has been in effect in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) since 2006.
Mexican activists, led by well-known Chicano activist Prof. Rudy Acuña, who teaches Chicano studies at California State University, Northridge, have launched an official campaign against the law.
Prof. Acuña is author of the provocatively titled Occupied America: A History of Chicanos, which is little more than an anti-white, anti-American tirade in which all the ills affecting Mexico are blamed on the gringos.
He has organized his supporters into an action group called “Save Ethnic Studies” (which of course means “Save Nonwhite Ethnic Studies”) and their legal assault is being led by lawyer Richard Martinez.
“With H.B. 2281, they are trying to take away from us the only program that has shown to have unprecedented success with reaching Latino students,” Mr. Martinez said.
They want to gut us. They want to take away our souls, our heart, our history and our culture,” he added, revealing the overtly racial makeup of the demands.
The American Third Position stands for the maintenance of the European character of America, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
While we have in principle no problem with ethnic groups wanting to celebrate their heritage and culture, this should not be done at the expense of the European character of our nation, or at taxpayers’ expense.
