Re: “Not a Lot of Nazi Statues in Berlin

When you pull tongue-in-cheek comments out of context of the original thread, it'd be nice if you had the courtesy to contact the original author of the quotes for further comment. Just pulling random, out-of-context quotes off facebook is pretty weak "journalism."

Re: “Not a Lot of Nazi Statues in Berlin

Thanks for pulling my quote out without noting that the comment was made tongue-in-cheek. A bit creepy when you pull quotes from facebook without interviewing the sources.

Re: “Governor's School blues

Would anyone mind telling me if Gov School is LGBT+ friendly? I'm hoping to apply, but I'm afraid my orientation might cause issues

Re: “Blind Attack

Ryan Plankenhorn appears to have good intentions with his remarks, and it is much appreciated. I would kindly like him to consider, however, that the statement "without a thought about differences in skin color" is a privilege that can be extended to many identities--be it race, gender or sexual orientation. As a black woman, I simply cannot ignore the underlying power dynamics if I'm in a board meeting with mainly white men. Similarly, as a straight woman I know that I can flippantly say "my boyfriend" or "my husband" in a group of strangers compared to "my girlfriend' or "my wife", without fear of judgment.

Connie Chastain Ward, reading that you believe that "slave owners were moral giants" compared to youth who are expanding their knowledge of Marxist/socialist ideologies is astonishing. Sure, communist governments throughout the world have indeed failed the people they promised to serve. But to discredit youths' openness to political and economic styles beyond capitalism (which has both pros and cons), and to literally say a slave owner is morally superior is appalling not only to descendants of slaves, but all Americans who condemn that practice.
