Thirdeye, you could answer your own question by reading what I actually wrote in my letter above. Also, it appears you want to ridicule the facts of ancient Europeans having arrived to the American continent thousands of years ago. The true science of forensics and D.N.A. tracking prove I am right and that you are wrong. Have a nice evening. :)
"On the controversial Lumberjack opinion piece:
Richmond: I was frankly surprised that there are still people around who have [the author's] perspective on minorities. I think we do a real service to students by diversifying our student, staff and faculty populations. The world is now a global marketplace, and if you're not able to appreciate a different culture and perspective then you're not going to do as well as you would otherwise. ... We're working to bring in students from all over the world. It's a big advantage to have them here, and I think we have something really good to offer them."
Frankly, I am surprised that Mr. Richmond would attach himself to this quote which clearly misrepresents what I wrote in the Guest Column, "European American Heritage Month." (Lumberjack, October 14, 2009 hard copy issue/October 22, 2009 online issue)
Also, I would like to know why Mr. Richmond will not just admit to the fact that H.S.U. is engaged in the advancement of Cultural Marxism.

What college professor at Humboldt has told students that the majority of white Southerners didn’t own any slaves, that they were poor farmers who saw the Northern armies as aggressors against their country? What college professor has told them they felt that way because they never signed onto the U.S. Constitution but were the Confederate States of America (C.S.A.), which means they were a separate nation? Required reading for college history and diversity courses should include “The Real Lincoln” by Economics Professor Thomas DiLorenzo and “The South Was Right!” by James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy. At least students can borrow these books through the inter-library system and get a dose of reality.
Regarding illegal immigration into California, we constantly hear how the “gringos” stole the land. After having fought a war with Mexico, the United States compensated that country. Doesn’t count? Okay, let’s go back further: When do we hear college professors stating that Europeans were in America thousands of years ago building cities, aqueducts, solar complexes, etc...? Che-na-wah Weitch-ah-wa, a Klamath Indian, wrote a book called “To the American Indian.” In this book, she mentioned the white people who lived on the Klamath called the Wa-gas who inhabited the whole continent long before anyone. She said they were a highly moral and civilized people who gave the arts and sciences to the Native American people. Her book is found online.
There are many examples that could be cited, but the point is that Humboldt State University and many tax-supported universities and college campuses are teaching college students to despise European heritage. What sort of campus environment is created for white students when their ancestors, even their contemporaries, are painted in a bad light every time they turn around? What sort of self-esteem are they going to have? How does a hostile learning environment help anyone? If other ethnicities are being encouraged to celebrate their ancestral heritage and heroes, then white students have the same right, and certainly the right to learning materials which encourage just that.
European American Heritage Month
Guest Column By Jeanne Brown
Published: Thursday, October 22, 2009
October is European American Heritage Month. Humboldt State University claims to embrace diversity, to promote heritage, but if you look at many of the text books and listen to what is said in the classroom, you will see that diversity means bashing everything European. It means that college students are subjected to this indoctrination day after day and our tax dollars pay for it.
Students have repeatedly heard that practically everything Europeans ever did was bad. Everything they did exploited or hurt another group. There are few heroes in European culture. Even the dead white men called the Founding Fathers were opportunists who were only concerned with preserving their property holdings. Nothing is said about their accomplishments, and if it is, they always accomplished what they did on the back of someone else. We always hear they owned slaves while not hearing that one of the reasons for the Revolutionary War was because the King of England wished to extend the slave trade into America.
Let’s take the Confederate flag issue for one moment. I bring this up because the Confederate flag is constantly designated as a symbol of hate. However, Southerners hold that flag up as meaning something important to the South: Heritage. Part of that heritage includes having fought against Lincoln’s illegal war of aggression against the South. It is a mistake to say that Lincoln was an emancipator because no one in the north was fighting to free slaves while no Southerner was fighting to keep slaves, while the Emancipation Proclamation was empty rhetoric: It freed no one.
