  1. What's been going on at TXST this past month? Bomb threats, frat boy killed, white supremacy banners and posters, now the UniStar just let anti-white hate speech get published? I don't remember it being this messed up back in the early 2000s. Back then it was just talk about building more on west campus and changing the name…now…

  2. "I don't think colored people can be racist".

    The only part i agree with is the "i dont think" part, he got that right.

  3. There needs to be a federal investigation and this University defunded. Martinez should be EXPELLED and the university newspaper shut down

  4. Condemned a racist?? GOOD next time you should think before writing how a race is no good for whatever reason
    If this asshole is any indication of college students mentally this world us more fucked up than ever imagined

  5. Joseph McCarthy may have been right. Communists have taken over our schools and media. It's pretty obvious now.

  6. Isn't that statement racist? I know the word Nazi is overused but it stands for facism – this guy calling for our deaths and no reproduction is exactly what they put into action in Germany – everyone KNOWS that and are still horrified of what they did – yet this anti-Caucasianism sounds pretty much of a horse of a different color but still the same horse.

  7. @1:10 white culture? he don't hate white people only the white culture? He is an idiot. when you state white people should die or should not exist that is hate that is evil. as a matter a fact your skin is white also!! if a white person wrote this article against any other skin color this would been in outrage.. the ones yelling and attacking that white people are racist, are the same people that are yet they are blinded and brainwashed not to see it.

  8. A racist scum bag why has he not been held accountable ? Leftist is just piling up shit together to get attention . Expel the leftist racist !!

  9. He looks like a white hispanic to me. If he were to take a dna test it would probably result in the majority being from european areas of the world.

  10. Connor cleg is a racist

    Rudy Martinez is a racist dumbass, the dude is literally white he doesn’t know anything about black or brown oppression he literally passes as white.

    Slavery isn’t white culture.

    Colored people can’t be racist what the fuck.

    That’s literally racist.

  11. Wasn't meant to be racist my ass. We all know that it was meant to be racist and had a white person said that about a black person they would have been kicked out of school and you know it and I know it
