In the old days in Europe the cultural exclusivity was religious. There was a time at Oxford university one had to subscribe to the articles of the Church of England to be academically eligible. Harvard University was named after a Puritan minister in the 1630’s, was a church sponsored institution for two centuries. The problem at that time was not not Eurocentrism, it was Christocentrism. Harvard was culturally exclusive, but in a religious sense.
The politics of the quota system at American universities was originally intended to restrict the number of Jews admitted in favor of Christians — Christocentrism gone mad. There is still a lot of Christocentrism left at American universities, but most of the university life has been secularized. However, as the 20th century is coming to an end, we have reached yet another cultural frontier. Just as Harvard once had to try and shed off Christocentrism, all American campuses now must shed off excessive Eurocentrism….

Here is the cat is let out of the bag.
1.) Note the reason is all American campuses must now shed off excessive Eurocentrism is precisely because in Eurocentrism one finds the Christocentrism that was previously sloughed off and yet remains expressed slightly in the culture that is Eurocentrism. This quote, from one of the enemies of the West, ties together for us in the most tightly connected fashion the connection in the minds of our enemies between the Christian faith and the White Anglo Saxon Christian and the culture that they built.
What this means of course is that the war being waged against the white man is being waged precisely because the white man was the carrier of the Christian faith — and yet still retains the slumbering remnant of Christianity in its cultural code. What people like Mazrui, Obango, Holder, and other epistemologically self conscious minorities == as well as far more self hating white people understand == is that if Eurocentrism can be finally destroyed then their previous attack to kill Christ will be largely successful. (Though they know that Christ can never be killed so they will be vigilant in each generation to do what must be done in order to keep Christ at bay. They can not succeed.)
Our enemies positively must destroy the White Anglo Saxon Christian Eurocentrism. It is a threat to all that they desire to build on the grave of the West and Christianity.
As an aside it might be asked where the origin of the self hatred of whites lies. The answer is simple. Self hating whites hate Christ and hate God’s moral law and anything of Christ that remains yet in their culture. As such they will, by way of multiculturalism and political correctness, make league with pagan minorities (most often cultural Marxist in their ideology) by ginning up past real and perceived minority grievances, in order to overthrow what remains of Christo-centrism and Euro-centrism. The real irony is when this is pursued in the Church all in the name of Christ. The real Christ will be murdered by a false Christ by self hating whites who would prefer civilizaitonal death than being ruled by Christ.
2.) When the universities favored Christians over Jews there was obviously an understanding that these united States was to be for Christians and be a Christian nation. Was there a reason why the universities at one time were careful to restrict the number of Jews?
3.) When Mazrui mentions that the universities became secularized and so moved away from Christocentrism there is an absolute necessity to understand that this move to the secular was in actuality a move towards anthropocentrism in any number of faith forms. In other words the centrism of Christianity in the universities was exchanged for the centrism of some other faith system. The idea of the “secular” is a myth.
4.) Like it or not Christianity and Christocentrism has been identified with the European and his Eurocentrism by our enemies. It is a convenient identification because by making this identification our enemies can attack us as “racists” when we defend the Christianity that made Europe, Europe when in point of fact we are “Christianists.” Well, if Christianist equals racist then let the whole world be covered with the success of the Gospel turning all men into racists as they are converted to Christianity.
