SECTION 1. The Legislature finds and declares all of the following: (a) Ethnic studies programs have come about from students of color demanding them. On November 6, 1968, a coalition of student groups at San Francisco State University demanded that the university institute an ethnic studies program. (b) Ethnic studies are an interdisciplinary and comparative study of race and ethnicity with special focus on four historically defined racialized core groups: Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latina and Latino Americans. (c) Studies have found that both students of color and white students benefit academically as well as socially from taking ethnic studies courses. Ethnic studies courses play an important role in building an inclusive multicultural democracy. ... 89032. (a) It is the intent of the Legislature that students of the California State University acquire the knowledge and skills that will help them comprehend the diversity and social justice history of the United States and of the society in which they live to enable them to contribute to that society as responsible and constructive citizens.No, you cannot take White studies, or European studies, or Western Civilization, or Christian studies. Princeton University has been accused, like everyone else, of system racism against colored people. It has to be an approved course on the "four historically defined racialized core groups". So far, Cal State is planning to permit courses on "social justice", if the law allows. That has become another code word for anti-White. Princeton Mathematics professor Sergiu Klainerman responds:
This awful accusation is in no way consistent with the experience of most of us. Together with all other academic institutions in the US, Princeton is today a model for the diversity of both its faculty and its student body. A cursory look at campus demographics will show that people of color, a category that includes Indians and Pakistanis, as well as Chinese and other people of East-Asian origin, make up a much higher proportion of the campus population than their representation in the US population. Those charging Princeton University with “white supremacy” never explain how their accusation is compatible with this reality. In my own department, Mathematics, both the faculty and graduate students are recruited from all over the world with absolutely no regard for any other criteria beyond excellence in research, scholarship, and teaching. If anything, the process produces a shockingly small number of US-born faculty — at my counting less than 15 percent. Our department has for years been credited as the top Mathematics department in the US and probably in the world.Got that? Over-representation of non-whites, no White supremacists, and less than 15% of math faculty are even born in the USA! If the university wants diversity of viewpoints, then it should have some White supremacists on the faculty. It should also have some Christians, some Republicans, some Trump supporters, and most of all, some natural born Americans! White supremacy is just an opinion. It is no more offensive than Marxism, and the university has avowed Marxists on the faculty. Their most famous professor is probably moral philosopher Peter Singer, and he is known for a broad range of sick and twisted opinions.
