Joe Feltcher September 28, 2012 at 12:12 AM
Those apartments that were converted into condos between Raleys and the Middle School are REALLY sketchy now. I feel for the people who bought them at the peak and are now stuck. I'd say at least half of those units are now rented out by absentee landlords to section 8 and minorities.
Riley Willerson September 28, 2012 at 02:04 AM
Joe you are so against anyone who is of what you think is not the right color. Section 8, ok, yes problems may come of people who have less, but to paint brush that minorities as well are an issue is just ignorant. You really demonstrate to all that you are a person of hate to people of color. Why don't you just come out and admit that it is your belief that "if you are not Anglo Saxon you are not an American". So, what is your nationality Joe? I bet your roots, traveled from another country. Can you explain what you view as an American?, enlighten us, humorous Joe, really tell us what you believe in as an American.

Benician, hear me and hear me loud. A community is only as tolerant and just and civil as it's weakest link!!! And Joe Feltcher...you are the weakest link in Benicia.
John Headley September 28, 2012 at 05:38 AM
Everybody relax, I'm sure Joe has a friend who is black.
Jeff Schwartz September 28, 2012 at 03:58 PM
I believe a more accurate description is that Feltcher would like to think he has black people who are friends!
Robert Livesay September 28, 2012 at 06:19 PM
None of us may believe what Joe is about but then again there are many that do. He speaks his beliefs and has no fear of doing so. Just why are we all living in Benicia. I do not think we moved here because of high crime rate, bad schools, gangs, murder and high unemployment. We all talk a good game but when the truth is known we are here for a reason and there are many that we will not talk about it publicly.. Joe is not afraid to talk about something that many others are thinking but will not talk about it. I do not know Joe but I do not believe he is a person of hate. I would rather he keeps his thoughts to himself. But at the same time he may be speaking for a lot more folks than we care to even think about. Joe will go on and on and that is ok with me. This is a comment and opinion section.

Then this poem is appropriate and very deserving AND very true!!! High Noon In Benicia There's a new sheriff in town and he’s aiming to get his due Watch out African Americans' Like his predecessor He's gunning for you He hails from Benicia Where his family resides In a pre-dominantly white city with pre-dominantly white crime with pre-dominantly white businesses that pre-dominantly don't hire Blacks You may disagree, until you check the facts Perhaps it is their modus operandi to put a stop to settling black roots by using the local constables to pick this low hanging fruit Benicians be proud of this local making it big never mind it was predicated on the backs of Benicias "NIGGS" So good luck Benicians May the new sheriff your fears he kill Although I don't think so cause you got a neighborhood called "NI- - -R HILL"
Riley Willerson September 28, 2012 at 10:22 PM
There you go Robert, speaking for Benicia as one body of peoples. I believe Robert what you stated does not portray myself or many other fellow Benician's in a positive manner. To make an assumption, and you know what they say about assuming, is dead wrong. To make the statement "that many others are thinking but will not talk about it" may be what you are about, but not what I believe Benicia is about. I believe that the majority of Benician's are not as narrowed minded as Joe. So, how would you describe Joe's comments? Friendly?, social?, supportive? Just because you and I and the rest of Benicia citizens enjoy low crime, great schools, family activities, does not mean the majority of people here in Benicia think like Joe or yourself.
Riley Willerson September 28, 2012 at 10:30 PM
Bobby at times you are right in the same company as Robert & Jo. We all have are prejudice ways, just a fact, a taught behavior. It begins when we began to see the world on our own and our mentors (parents) tell us "Don't talk to that person or this person, you don't know them" We learn very early on to fear what our parents feared. A child knows no color, they will greet people just as they are. It is only when we are taught to not speak or interact with such and such, the seed is planted. Yes we need to be aware and teach our children for protection form what can be a harsh world, but it is the manner of the lesson that lasts a life time.
Robert Livesay September 28, 2012 at 11:06 PM
Riley I never said I think like Joe. So do not6 make false statements about me. You do not know me. Yes you read what I write. Yes I am a Conservative in a very Liberal town. But watch what you that you know nothing about. I have my own company and I doubt you even know who it or they are. So do not and try to place me with others that you know are not true. Am I in your company? You tell me. Being you know me as you think you do. My followers are very plentiful and in this town.
"The Black Panther of Poetry" September 29, 2012 at 06:09 AM
Racism is hardwired in a lot of "YOU" people. Reminds me of a Southern Fable called: THE FROG AND THE SCORPION There once was a scorpion who needed a ride across a huge lake. So he asked the frog to give him a ride. The frog said sure I'll give you a ride if you promise not to sting me. The scorpion looked at the frog with very convincing eyes and vehemently announced, deal. I promise I want sting you. So off the frog goes with the scorpion on his back across this vast lake. And lo and behold half way across the lake, sure enough the scorpion stings the frog. In his last dying breath, the frog screams out, "hey, you promised you wouldn't sting me"!! The scorpion looked back at the frog sinking to the bottom along with him and replied. "Hey I'm a scorpion, did you really expect me not to sting you"?
Riley Willerson September 29, 2012 at 01:49 PM
Robert there you ago again, can't or will not own up to what you said, amazing how when the fingers point back at you, it gets to warm in the kitchen. Read what you stated. So what you are saying is that you and your followers who are plentiful in this town, believe that Joe is speaking for Benicia citizens? And can you answer the question asked ; are Joe's comments supportive? Friendly? Or what Benicians see as supporting the majority? Seems the real Robert is coming out of the closet, too bad, you had me fooled, thought you were just conservative but not a narrow minded one race kinda guy. Turns out your are Joes Big Daddy, wow like father like son.
Robert Livesay September 29, 2012 at 02:22 PM
Riley read my comment again. You either can not read or just do not understand. I said "Many of us may not believe what Joe is about but then again there are many that do". Riley just how do I think. I am not a racist are you. I have no idea who Joe is. Just saying he has the right to say what he thinks. I believe Riley you know me better than what you are trying very hard to say about me. You know nothing about me. . You have painted yourself into a corner and can not get out. Go back and read my first comment. That should get your head straight. I never said what you are saying I said. "a lot more folks that we even care to think about". A note of caution not a fact. Get with the program and stop your one sided view of Bob Livesay
Riley Willerson September 29, 2012 at 06:04 PM
Robert, "Get with the Program" your standard response to anyone who challenges your logic. To being a Racist, lets see, A racist is just not about the color of skin, but I am sure you are aware of that. Yes, I have my own preconceived biases, like men of your caliber of being. Just as you have your "Racist" issues with Democrats, greenies, liberals, need I go on? No corner for me to get out of, I use water color for paint, just wash it away. And one more thing Robert, you do have more than one side, and it gets a little scarier each time your inner voice creeps into the present with your torts. Enjoy your weekend, you do not always have to have the last word, or do you?
Robert Livesay September 29, 2012 at 06:44 PM
Now the truth comes out Riley. You do not like me. That is ok. Then quit commenting on what I say. I am who I am. Very proud to be an American.
Riley Willerson September 29, 2012 at 11:24 PM
Reel you in like BIG FISH, you are so easy to bait, had to get in the last word, can you just listen to another point of view? I do not dislike you as a human being, I do not wish ill harm to fellow beings, I just have issue with your logic and justification responses, and like you have told us all "Its all just an OPINION" not necessarily fact, and I am proud as well to be an American and a proud Veteran. Time to move on to other topics, wore this one out.
"The Black Panther of Poetry" September 29, 2012 at 11:33 PM
“In the Blackest lie, and in the whitest fright and flight, No racism shall escape this Black mans' sight. Let those who practice their racist rite, Beware my pen… when this Black man write!!!“
Robert Livesay September 30, 2012 at 01:20 AM
Riley you seem to want to keep this topic going. What branch and when.?
Riley Willerson October 01, 2012 at 01:19 PM

Any way Honorable discharge 1992, and You? so can we close this dialogue and move on to the upcoming debates, see you there on patch, JB has asked the question "what would question would you ask"

Riley Willerson October 01, 2012 at 02:44 PM

Robert Livesay October 01, 2012 at 04:36 PM
