Immigrants crowd out whites from signing up for classes at University of California

The Greek mythology class has long been popular at UC Santa Barbara, but never quite like this.

For the current term, 500 students are enrolled in Professor Apostolos Athanassakis’ classics course, filling the lecture hall to capacity. And 300 others have tried, mostly unsuccessfully, to land a spot on the roster, he said.

Recent state funding cuts have translated to reductions in undergraduate course offerings across the beachside campus, sending students scurrying for classes such as Athanassakis’ that fulfill various requirements.

Greek mythology?  Isn’t that like being destroyed by hubris?  Thinking we could invite the third world and still be America?  White people are being done in by hubris in part.  But there is also betrayal, malice, and envy.  Something about those in Greek tragedy too.
