  • "Gordon: What a load of garbage you've penned here; America from the very beginning thought that only white males of a certain financial status could be leaders, could make all the decisions for everyone else. Our forefathers were great men of vision, but most all of them were also hypocrites as well, writing that all men are created equal, while owning slaves at the very moment that was written. As our government pushed to expand ever westward, we displaced native Americans, often times murdering them, poisoning them (smallpox infected blankets), and confining them to small patches of the least desirable land areas calling them "reservations". In the writing of the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment was modified several times to appease the southern states so they could continue with their slave patrols that later developed in quite a few areas as "police departments", and the tactics and laws written at the time were all about controlling slaves, and then later the freed slaves since it was assumed by most that people of color did not have the ability to think for themselves. CRT is nothing more then teaching the actual history of what slavery was to America, and how laws were written to keep whites in positions of power and wealth. Even in sleepy little 'ole San Luis Obispo, there were conditions put on the sale of houses prohibiting black people from buying houses here well into the 50s and 60s. As a late sixties year old white male, I find myself attempting to understand why people like yourself feel so threatened by an examination of our country's real history. I'm sure since this site has gone full on conservative leaning (at least in the comments and opinion sections) my words here will be downvoted continuously, but I ask every single white person clicking the "down" arrow, what are you so afraid of by having our history examined? Aren't you enlightened enough to understand it's okay to question the status quo, as long as you can be objective? But I guess that is one of the most difficult ideals to achieve for conservatives, objectivity. Have at it ..."

  • "Hey Dan Dow, FYI, our community has never allowed elder abuse. That would be you. The same guy who allows a rapist cop of 3 to walk free. Or going out of your way to protect violent white guys who abuse women. Covering up for cops. We know who you are. Your blanket statements are self-serving re-election garbage."

  • "I'm not surprised of the displeasure or disagreement with my comment of different breeds among the human race. Boy would that change things at the Olympics and sports in general. Some don't even like the male, female separation in sports and now it is transgenders competing in the female class. How would the NBA or the NFL deal with breed specific teams even though it is trending that way either by default or the recruiters spending their time in Africa (no joke, they actually do). Yes modern man (person) will eventually publicly accept the fact that we have competitive specific breeds of people just like there are competitive specific breeds of horses, etc."

  • "He's never been convicted of DUI before but a quick internet search for Mr. Castaneda shows 2 prior arrests in '18 and '20. Various charges included vandalism, exhibit deadly weapon other than firearm, drive w/o license, carry concealed weapon... Now he's taken the life of some innocent pedestrian. He deserves to be in prison for a very long time. What a jerk."

  • "LOL yeah right, it's the "liberals" fault that this happened. Did you miss that this happened in Paso? You've got your demographics all wrong. If this was low-rent student housing in SLO, you might have a point, but the few liberals in Paso are living in the multi-million dollar vineyard estates and not some low income tenement housing project by the railroad tracks."

  • "Is? You got to be kidding. They state "equal treatment for people of all races was not good." Uh yeah, that's how Jim Crow laws started - not treating all races equally. Dang, this isn't rocket science. There's a concerted effort to divide us. This is definitely part of it and the opposite of being inclusive. Same cr** from CRT. Dr Martin Luther King Jr. said it best: "I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.""

  • "You would think that a claim related to higher education be understanding that we are all of the same race. People are people, cats are cats, dogs are dogs, and among each race are different breeds. Among the different breeds, they can cross and that's ok but to falsely use the term racial discrimination among humans is plain ignorant and unaccepting that we have different breeds among us. Frankly the negro breed is far superior to the causation breed at many things and given the opportunity maybe everything. It is breed discrimination not racial discrimination that we live with. It has been and currently is the suppression of various breeds that keep the those above this discussion in control. Now if you want to call it as it is, just categorize (all facets) and expose the percentages compared to the world population percentages. If you truly want to represent higher education, do the math and ignore the word spinners."

  • "Good for you, Ben, for speaking truth to power. If you get any pushback from Cal Poly administrators, please let me know. I hope you are considering joining student clubs in which you might make a difference. If not, please consider the Cal Poly College Republicans and the Cal Poly chapter of TPUSA, for example. Best wishes for a great start to the 2021-22 academic year. We are fortunate to have students like you on our Cal Poly campus!"

  • "So the author wants ti hide the truh.i want my kids to learn how white men and religion actedt with native people and black people. I am ot afraid to face consequenses. Let take example on Germany. This country adressed Nazism, taught why and how it happened Germany apologized to the world and assumed holocaust. I think most of german made peace with history. Lets teach the dark side of our past.if we do not, nut cases will do it for us.Parents ,you had whole life to fix rascisme and did not succed.Trust our kids to be able to eliminate rascism, teach them the truth!"

  • "What? Modern day college grads well rounded? Not even close to being true. For the last 30 years I've worked with many grads who are clueless and close minded to the reality of many things. Especially the last twelve years. Life's reality and the truth of it, will bring most of them back. There's nothing wrong with "the resistance" with the indoctrination and "one side only" thought process and limited freedom of speech on university campuses. It's selective at best. Are these major universities, administrations, and faculties fair and balanced to all sides and opinions? Absolutely not. Again, selective at best. Get a grip."

  • "It appears that Helen Nolan demonstrated that she is competent in the administration of elections. My suggestion is that the selection committee interview the managers of Title Companies to ascertain how she fulfills the other portion of her department’s duties. If there is agreement on her performance then the job should be hers"

I walked out of the room at that point. Neither of those things can I change. I can treat others as I would like to be treated."
