Women deserve to be equal to men

Marcus Castro, Contributing Editor

April 19, 2016

Many people say that these days, women have nearly earned full equality among men. I think that they are completely wrong. Women are moving toward equality at a much faster pace than they were 100 years ago, but I do not believe that they are close to where they morally should be. Men still dominate in many areas of the work world and leadership positions. In politics,...

Breast-feeding in public: Is it really that big of a deal? (Con)

April 19, 2016

I am a man who loves the female body, from the complexities of the female personality, to the broad range of physical features that I myself find alluring on the female body. I may be a little unconventional in saying this but, the female body is the greatest piece of art ever created. Being born into household of six women and only one male, and being from the south, I was...

Weed helps health

Happy 4:20 everyone! I wish you this as a card-carrying member of the cannabis community. It was moving to California, where I would have consistent access to high quality marijuana at a price that is more or less fixed by a free market system, which allowed me to move past my own health issues and finally succeed in living an average life. You may take this for granted,...

I Googled “breast-feeding in public” and found out that on April 11, a woman participating in a case being heard in a North Carolina courtroom was expelled from the premises for breast-feeding her infant son. According to North Carolina law, a woman may breast-feed her child in any place where she is legally allowed to be. I started with the Google search because...

As we all know, California is in a serious drought. The shortage on water is a big deal in Kern County as we mostly rely on the snow from the mountains...

Reviews of game reviews

Chris Miller, Reporter

April 5, 2016

Filed under Opinion

The integrity and overall trustworthiness of video game reviews has plummeted over the years, and as time goes on, it seems to only be getting worse. Video game reviews, along with any kind of review in general, are sacred. They are personal opinions about a game after a reviewer has spent enough time on that game to give his or her own thoughts and share those thoughts with...

Donald Trump: Yes or No? (Pro)

Joe Bergman, Photo and Sports Editor

April 5, 2016

Filed under Opinion

The President of the United States is often considered to be the world’s most powerful person, leading the world’s only superpower. The president commands the world’s most powerful military, which is armed with the largest nuclear arsenal, and leads the world’s largest economy. One would think that a position with so much power would have stringent prerequisites,...

Donald Trump: Yes or No? (Con)

Freddie Ward, Reporter

April 5, 2016

Filed under Opinion

Donald Trump is no longer a joke, and it’s time for voters to take this sexist, racist, bigoted, lying, and narcissistic candidate seriously. Currently, he has won 18 of 30 primaries and has approximately 800 of the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination for President of the United States. First and foremost, Trump has no knowledge of the Constitution...

Cafeteria prices aren’t that bad

Freddie Ward, Reporter

Filed under Opinion

Take a second look at BC’s cafeteria’s prices. As a student, I thought, “wow,” I’m being hustled. I’m paying $6.20 for a hamburger combo, $6.90 for a chicken combo, $3.75 to $6.35 for a salad and $1.85 for cookies. So, I set out to see if I could get “more for less” on these combos, since these are the foods I purchase most often for lunch. My first stop...

Should college be free? (Pro)

James Macias, Reporter

March 15, 2016

Filed under Opinion

The words “free education” have been thrown around lately as if they are meaningless or something. Free education is not an issue to be taken lightly. Certainly everyone reading these words will find it to be a serious issue. It has been offered in several other countries that we consider ourselves equal with, if not superior to, such as France, Malta, Scotland and the...

Men shouldn’t always be expected to pay for women on dates

Carl E. Littleberry Jr., Reporter

March 15, 2016

Filed under Opinion

I recently went out to a movie with a young lady named Angela who really opened up my eyes to a sort of stereotype or expectation women have for men. Now Angela and I are friends through and through, I mean we play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 together in a clan, so you can say we are pretty close. However when we went out to watch the new movie “The Revenant”, Angela apparently...
