Native American: I Was Kicked out of Class over 'Genocide'

 


On Sunday, the university issued a statement on Facebook stating that Chiitaanibah Johnson was not disenrolled in the course by the professor, Maury Wiseman. The statement read:

Sacramento State was very concerned upon learning about this incident and the allegations surrounding it. The University would like to make it clear that our student, Chiitaanibah Johnson, was not expelled or disenrolled from this history course. Under University policy, a professor cannot unilaterally disenroll a student from a class. President Robert S. Nelsen is looking into what was alleged to have happened. “I take this matter very seriously. I intend to talk to Chiitaanibah Johnson as we work to gather all the information necessary to resolve this situation positively.”

Johnson, a sophomore, told the Indian Country Today Media Network (ICTMN), “The whole thing started on Wednesday. He was talking about Native America and he said the word genocide. He paused and said ‘I don’t like to use that word because I think it is too strong for what happened’ and ‘genocide implies that it was on purpose and most native people were wiped out by European diseases.'”
