Pre Abrihamic philosophy should be available in higher education. 

I think it should be available in grammar school.

Asian and African Parables teach a moral code as much if not more than Abrihamic (biblical) stories.

philosophy from other cultures would be something to aim for, but the banishment of European philosophers just doesn't make any sense.

That's a non-sense article.

What banishment of European philophers?

Abrihamics from the middle east aren't "White"

Geat pholosophers are from the mediteranian, middle east , and east.

Are they arguring that they are only being taught about Protestitism, and Catholocism? If so I would complain too.

I signed up for a class on "World Religions." The first day I found out is was only about the diversity of xtianity - so dropped the class.
