Campus Reform reports that an African American Colorado State University student was asked to exit a meeting the day before Halloween simply because was dressed up as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in blackface. The costume portrayed the recently re-elected Canadian Prime Minister after old photos emerged showing him dressed in black face.
This incident came a year after photos of Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam was also wearing black face.
Koby Peters, a member of student government from CSU’s College of engineering, spoke with Campus Reform about this strange incident. Peters claimed that other student government leaders voted to remove him from the meeting without giving him the chance to defend himself. The leaders who instructed Peters to leave were apparently of a variety of races, including white, black, and Hispanic.
Wearing blackface is typically viewed as racist when done by others groups, but Peters called to attention the irony of him getting removed from a meeting for wearing blackface, as an African American.
“As you can see, I cannot take off my blackface so adding on another shade, in my opinion, doesn’t change anything,” Peters commented.
Peters insisted that he didn’t wear the costume to offend anyone, but instead to get people talking.
“I was hoping there would be a lot of discussion because I chose this costume to bring out the hypocrisy that Canada re-elected Justin Trudeau on the back of the endorsement of Barack Obama so we really need to figure out whether blackface is OK or it’s not OK. The fact that I was voted out immediately just shows how hypocritical a certain side of the ideology is,” Peters stated. “I think it’s obvious that the reason being that it’s been taken so offensively is because I’m a black conservative on campus, which aren’t supposed to exist.”
Peters noted that this isn’t the first time he’s been singled out as a black conservative student. He added that in the past he’s been called a “nazi, a member of the KKK, and a race-traitor.”
It remains to be seen what will happen next. Peters explained that the college council that sent him to student government supposedly held a meeting on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 to determine if will keep his leadership position. Although Peter is optimistic that he will stay in his leadership role, he conceded that if he does not, “this will definitely show how afraid they are of different ideas.”
Student government leaders were not the only ones criticizing Peters. CSU’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers emailed its members after the incident, calling it “another recent issue with disrespect towards people of color.”
Interestingly, the email said that “this time it included a senator from the College of Engineering for ASCSU,” but it did not talk about Peters’ race.
On top of that, CSU College of Engineering dean David McLean emailed students to talk about “another incident of hate and bias.”
“This is example to us all on how we must remain steadfast in our commitment to immediately speak out against incidents of hate, bias and racism,” McLean wrote. “As a community, we in the College of Engineering abhor racism and bias, and we unequivocally condemn blackface. There is no place for hate in our college or at the university. This behavior does not reflect our values and our Principles of Community of Inclusion, Integrity, Respect, Service and Social Justice.”
“Acts of bias and racism, whether committed in ignorance or with malice, are harmful, degrading, and have long-lasting impacts. These acts are against our values, and we must continue to call out and condemn such acts. We must foster a sense of belonging in our college and continue to speak out against instances of hate, aggression and bias,” McLean continued.
Thanks to PC culture being so dominant on college campuses, conservatives of all stripes and backgrounds face many obstacles.
Incidents like these demonstrate the need for conservatives to build strong support networks on college campuses to help combat arbitrary leftist thought-policing.

An America First Candidate Wants to Make Things Right in Texas 23rd Congressional District
Texas’ Congressional District 23 now has an America First candidate in Raul Reyes who will put border security as his primary focus.
The previous incumbent Will Hurd was a milquetoast Republican who was receptive to open borders policies and even voted for gun control legislation. Reyes seeks to make up for the lack of America First representation in the district. His efforts have caught the attention of immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the founder of the Remembrance Project — an organization dedicated to stopping illegal immigration. Espinoza endorsed him on April 8, 2020.
BLP had a chance to speak with Reyes about his campaign.
What motivated you to run for office?
Two items motivated me to run for Congress
A. All the Texas Families in harm’s way due to open borders. I grew up in District 23 (Del Rio). It’s gotten worse and no one is doing anything about it. Will Hurd claimed the border crisis was a myth. In my 22 years of service to this country I spent a lot of time in Central and South America, I consider myself an expert in Latin America. I’m pretty sure we have a crisis on the border. When the incumbent refused to do anything, I decided to primary him. I declared my run on May 4, 2019, long before Will Hurd decided not to seek re-election. After he did, then 7 other candidates jumped in, including Tony Gonzales.
B.Also, we need jobs in District 23. Globalism destroyed the middle class here. I saw It firsthand when Levi’s Strauss closed their factories here for cheaper labor somewhere else. We suffer unemployment rates at a higher exponential rate when the oil industry goes bust because a large portion of our citizens (Western Counties) in District 23 work the oil fields of the Permian Basin. I believe we can counter that by bringing manufacturing and industry back to District 23. Coronavirus has proved me right on that.
Who is your main opponent in the Republican primary for Texas’s 23rd Congressional District?
Tony Gonzales. He’s Will Hurd endorsed and funded by the establishment open borders crowd. He’s a LULAC (open borders anti-Trump crowd) type endorsed candidate. He declared on May 15, 2019 that he would be running against Lloyd Doggett in Texas’ 35th district. When Hurd decide to not seek reelection, he jumped into District 23.
What separates you from your opponent?
A few things. We’re for The America First Agenda. I’m the only one with executive experience. I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel with an immense experience in Central and South America. I’m ready to help secure this border using that experience. My opponent can’t do that. He’s bought and paid for by the establishment. He will never vote to build a wall and help secure this border. They’re not going to let him do that. Same goes for 2nd Amendment. Hurd voted against the 2nd Amendment. Tony is going to have to toe the line when it comes to Red Flag Laws. He’ll have to vote according to who funded him in this campaign. That’s Hurd and the open border establishment crowd.
Lastly, we are Trump Republicans. And, we’ve taken no/zero PAC money…all our funding is from people who have had enough with the establishment. Tony is going to be a puppet of the people funding him. He can’t escape that. Since he’s being funded by the Never Trump folks, he’s also a Never-Trump candidate. In a previous article where he was asked about his position on the impeachment of Donald J Trump, he said he was unsure, meaning he could have gone either way on that matter.
What is the most important issue for voters in the 23rd Congressional District?
Securing the border.
Do you think the Texas GOP has done a good job promoting America First candidates?
Some in the GOP are establishment types. For them, it’s about control. And many still believe in open borders. So, they’re not going to support a candidate like me. That said, many in the GOP are looking for real change. We will embrace whatever support we can get.
Who has endorsed your campaign so far?
Texas Right To Life
Conservatives in Action
San Antonio Family Association (SAFA)
Young Conservatives of Texas
Do you have any general comments about your race and how people can get in touch with your campaign?
We are a true homegrown, non-establishment campaign. The establishment doesn’t want us to win. Their puppet looks a lot like Gina Ortiz (the Democrat) in the November election and hence how we end up with open borders and no jobs brought back to this district regardless of who wins. For the establishment, the end result is the same. I’m here to highlight that and win this primary and then the General.
