Pro-White Advocacy Group’s Fliers Sparks Backlash at Central Valley College
Steve Large, CBS Sacramento, October 12, 2016
The president of CSU Stanislaus and the chancellor’s office are monitoring racially-charged fliers that have recently been going up on campus.
The campus controversy centers on Stanislaus State student Nathan Damigo after he launched a campaign at dozens of colleges to recruit members for his new self-proclaimed “pro-white” advocacy group called Identity Europa, passing out stickers out.
“It says let’s become great again,” Damigo said. “It’s very much a message of empowerment to people of European heritage.”
The group is only open to whites.
In response to Damigo’s recruiting, a group called Northern California Anti-Racist Action posted flyers reading, “A warning to the public, known white supremacist, and violent offender in a hate crime, Nathan Damigo is currently enrolled at CSU Stanislaus.”
CSU Stanislaus President issued a statement Wednesday saying she can’t and won’t stop the campus controversy.
The statement read in part, “we cannot withdraw or suppress the viewpoints of others that do not violate the law or campus policy.”
