Re: “Claire Bent & Citizen Funk

This band is amazing. After leaving the Eureka theater we could hear amazing music coming from the Eureka Inn. We decided to go in and check it out. Claires voice is soulful and mesmerizing. We danced most every song. This is our new favorite band in Humboldt. Claire Bent and Citezen Funk is a MUST SEE

Re: “Fans Say Goodbye to HSU Football (With Video)

Symbolic, isn't it? This game is a symbol of the torch being passed in terms of California Division II football. The state now belongs to APU and it will do its best to keep the fire burning for the best state in the Union.

Re: “#WeWillNotBeErased

Great work with this cover story NCJ. Colin, Aydan, and Carmen are articulate, humane, relatable writers who share their own experiences honestly. It took courage for them to use their voices so publicly, and I have deep respect for their willingness to do so. No one should fear for their safety simply for being who they are. I hope that this story will make some people who have been fearful of trans folks realize these people are members of our community simply living their lives.

Re: “McKinley Statue Debate Making the Media Rounds

People have nothing better to do than to worry about a historic monument that has been in place and not menacing anybody for 113 years? Egad! The rivalry of the white man and native Americans began long before Manifest Destiny was even a concept. My forebears fought Native Americans while protecting their homes in the Shenandoah Valley in the pre-Revolutionary War era in the 18th century. Atrocities were committed equally on both sides. Nobody ever says anything about Indian atrocities.

The concept called Manifest Destiny was not coined until 1845. The country was a split as badly as it is today over Trump by that term. At least half, if not more, of the populous did not believe in it.

By McKinleys time Manifest Destiny had already played out on The North American continent. The US and its three remaining territories, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona, already stretched from sea to shining sea. McKinleys only involvement with Manifest Destiny was with respect to the Philippines and Hawaii, where no Native Americans lived. California had already been a state since 1850. California Native Americans were never put upon by McKinleys advancement of Manifest Destiny.

People today lament the bad card history, namely white men, dealt them. I never hear African-Americans decry the Muslims that bought them into slavery starting in the 7th century AD and which continues to this day in Mauritania and Sudan. They never decry the rich Africans that sold them. People living today did not participate in the deeds of yesterday. You cannot exact reparations from history. There is not enough money in the world to pay back to all that were ever ill-treated by history. Mans inhumanity to man goes back at least 67,000 years. We need to learn from real history and resolve to move on, adjusting our compass accordingly. If we can eradicate mans inhumanity to man, God bless us. Tearing down monuments will not get us to the promised land.
