University of Northern Colorado president criticizes “racist attack” on campus

University of Northern Colorado President Kay Norton has sent a campus-wide email condemning racist attacks on Mexican-American studies protesters.

The attacks are said to have happened April 10, the same day UNC students and administrators took part in a public forum regarding the suspension of the Mexican-American studies program.

The Greeley Tribune reports UNC students critical of the university’s decision to suspend the Mexican-American studies program had objects thrown at them and were subjected to racist and demeaning diatribes.

School officials say the college major was suspended because of low enrollment.

No doubt it occurring to students that a degree in Mexican-American Studies is an expensive ticket to nowhere.

    You want to learn about your Mexican-American history?
    Go read it yourself. Don’t expect credit for it though.

    At the rate that Obama is letting in illegals and promising them $20,000.00+ each, he just has to wait a bit longer and it will be a hell-hole with rampant crime just like Mexico and he’ll feel right at home.
    The Mexican’s bankrupted about 100 Hospitals in L.A . as the illegal women got pregnant to have an American baby but they knew to use 9-1-1 that defaulted to using the ER’s that can’t refuse them as a charity case to keep the Licence as a 4-profit Hospital.
    Wynne told illegals that they would get FREE health care even if Harper wouldn’t grant it.
    Don’t be shocked when the US illegals pour into canada for better welfare and Heath care because we have lower crime rates , well , for now until the Latino gangs and Mexicans make Toronto a hell-hole for drugs and killings.
