This is a letter that I sent to University of Oregon President Dave Frohnmayer:
Dear Mr. Frohnmayer,
I wanted to make you aware of the fact that there is a racist organization active on your campus. They call themselves MECHA and their "plan" is outlined on this page from a University of Oregon website.
I will sum it up with one line from their plan: "For La Raza to do. Fuera de La Raza nada." Translated this means "For the Race all. Outside the Race nothing." That is a very disturbing plan in my opinion. They refer to themselves as "La Raza de Bronze" which means "the bronze race."
While I have been aware of this groups existence for quite some time I actually had the opportunity to meet some of these individuals yesterday. This was during a protest of the Mexican Consulate and various state agencies using University of Oregon property to give Matricula Consular cards, Mexican ID, to illegal aliens.
Chants of "viva la raza" which means "the race lives" we frequent as were chants of "we were here first." In addition to these group chants my wife, who is Hispanic, was called a "sellout" for her opposition to illegal immigration. Your campus has a policy on "bias incidents" and I believe that this would qualify as one since her race was the contributing factor in the name-calling.
It was also disturbing to see University professor Bob Bussel participate in these racist comments.
If you are interesting in documented proof of these incidents I have pictures, video and audio of all of it and would be glad to supply you with it.
I do not believe that a racist organization should be allowed to operate freely with campus support. While I believe that people have the right to freely assemble they do not have the right to use campus servers to further their racist agenda. I'm sure that the surrounding community and the alumni would be shocked to know that a fine school such as the U of O harbors such a group.
I would encourage all of you to contact the University President and in a respectful manner suggest that this group no longer receive university support. See pictures below for things like pictures of their "one love, one race" poster.
