Central Valley College Student Recruits For Whites-Only Group

TURLOCK (CBS SF) – 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, including his own, to recruit members for his new, self-proclaimed "pro-white" advocacy group called Identity Evropa, CBS Sacramento reported.

"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.

CBS 13 reporter Steve Large asked Damigo on camera, "Do you condemn white supremacy speech? Do you condemn hate speech? Do you condemn these types of ideas?"

Damigo responded, "I mean, you would have to define what you mean by white supremacy or hate speech."
