About UCSC Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES)

This blog is maintained by students throughout UCSC. We recognize that students have been working around Ethnic Studies for multiple decades and at many levels of the university. We claim no ownership over any movement or material that is produced. We ask that any materiel used from the blog is cited and used for only educational purposes. Most importantly that it is done with honor and respect for the many people who worked in the struggle for Ethnic Studies. We would also like to point out that the name Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) was created to acknowledge the intellectual development of Ethnic Studies since the beginning of this struggle. The name came from countless meetings and hours with many different undergrads, graduate students, and faculty.

    reading those comments on the sentinel article, i am forced to conclude that nearly the whole lot of those readers is seriously disturbed. for example, “wang wei” (clearly a pseudonym), who describes himself as a 70-year-old man, responds to another reader/commentator who identifies herself as a young student at ucsc, by stating that although he’s “not privy to ‘what’s between your legs,'” she should “watch the bamboos carefully” b/c he “may be hiding and watching you.” how did the comment space for an article on the fight for ethnic studies turn into a chat room for some septuagenarian pervert?
