Israel, you don’t get peace with war

Israel, you don’t get peace with war

War never changes. Ambiguous reasons, propaganda, pointed fingers, supposed peace talks and heated debate flow into a confused public all while people are losing their lives to reasons unknown to them. On Oct. 30, Israeli planes attacked a Syrian military base. To Israel, I ask to stop acting with a...

For this Veteran’s Day, I’d like to encourage everyone to honor the memory of fallen service men and women of this country by lighting the American flag on fire and burning down military recruitment centers - so that the cycle of creating veterans can end. But if that doesn’t seem appropriat...

Colorism stops us from seeing how beautiful all black people are By Champaign Williams In my mind I thought this would be a simple subject to write about. But the deeper I delve into the issues and the more I recount experiences from my past, pain begins to surface. I wrote this opinion as I watched the d...

Have you ever played the game “How to beat Capitalism?” No? Then please allow me to explain the setup of the game, which is rather basic and straightforward: First, never choose to become poor and always be a puppet for the wealthy, no matter what. If they say jump, you say “how high?” If t...

College is difficult. That is a fact. From classes to parking permits, every small detail is a pest to think about but in order to receive that coveted bachelor's degree. This is what we have to endure, right? Not necessarily. Very soon there might not be a need to transfer to a four-year institution. Wh...

For this year, don’t be a racist for Halloween

Calvin Ratana

October 31, 2013

Oh, Halloween. They say it’s fun to dress up and go to Halloween parties. But it isn’t – at least not when there’s rampant cultural appropriation and people dressed up in racist costumes running around everywhere. In this age, that’s exactly what Halloween has turned into: an ugly parade o...

Lisa Anderson

Veganism is increasingly gaining momentum, and as the “World Vegan Month” of November approaches, it may be a good time to consider why. Full disclosure – I am vegan, and therefore biased, but I’m also reasonable (yes, it’s possible). I’d like to explain why I’m vegan while also addressing s...

Opening and holding open a door for a woman, pulling out a chair for her to be seated, offering to hang up her coat at a social venue, riding a horse. These are all acts that align with chivalrous behavior. Riding a horse isn’t an act of chivalry, you say? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary...

Jerry Brown signed AB 351, a bill that prohibits any agency in California from knowingly aiding the indefinite detention of a person within the state under certain controversial federal laws.
