Letter to the Editor: Response to “Your DNA is an abomination”

Dear Editor,

I was disturbed this morning to discover that my beloved Alma Mater had gained International notoriety for a disgusting article in the university newspaper by Rudy Martinez. The article is racist and bigoted in the extreme and has no place in a publication that represents the university.

Is this what Texas State has become? The school I remember was a place admired for its freedom of thought, racial diversity, and acceptance of all kinds of people. If Mr. Martinez’ article is indicative of our school today, then it has undoubtedly devolved into nothing more than a tool of the totalitarian left.

Racism and bigotry should not be given license in a publication that should be dedicated to diversity and inclusiveness. While I stand behind Mr. Martinez’ right to believe whatever he wants and to say it if he wants, I do not think he should be able to say it in a publication that represents our university. If he wants a platform to spew his hate, then there are many outlets that could be suggested.

Sincerely,

Robert Tuuk

  1. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE???

    WHERE DO YOU GET THE GALL TO SAY SUCH THINGS ABOUT AN ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE??

    YOU ARE SCUM. YOU SHOULD BE FIRED. YOU ARE NOT A JOURNALISM BUT A TWO BIT WHORE WHO PANDERS TO HER LEFTIST MASTERS.

    YOU BETTER CHECK YOURSELVES YOU OVERLY ENTITLED MINORITY SHITS. YOU ARE FORGETTING WHAT STATE YOU ARE IN!

  2. The irony of the article is that Martinez and the (former) editor-in-chief who published it are both of Spanish descent, like so many Hispanic people. In other words, their ancestors were the very ‘conquistadors’ who committed genocide against the native Americans, and who began the Atlantic slave trade. Indeed, the overwhelming majority of African slaves went to Latin America after abduction from Africa. And 90% of Native Americans were killed by Spanish people BEFORE the first English settlement at Jamestown in the 1600s. It is therefore an ironic paradox of history that these people descended from Spain, who are now called “Hispanic” or “Latino” should blame “White” Americans for the crimes that their own ancestors committed. Most White (European) Americans are descended from immigrants who arrived in the US in the late 19th and 20th century, in other words AFTER slavery was over. When Martinez and Cervantes talk about genocide and slavery, they must examine their own Spanish history a bit more closely, and look in the mirror. THEIR ancestors committed the crimes of which they accuse others. Are they deflecting?
