Idaho journalists ignore ugly racism from Nampa school board candidate

Chandra Reyna is a racist who wants to shape the minds of students in the Nampa School District. 

Unfortunately, most voters in Nampa won’t ever see her ugly anti-white, anti-police messages. Why? Apparently they’re not newsworthy enough for the media to report on. 

A few days ago, concerned parents in the Nampa School District started researching their candidates for school board. Three seats on Nampa’s five-member school board are up for grabs in this year’s election. 

Parents unearthed disturbing tweets from Reyna, a candidate vying for Nampa’s Zone 3 seat. Reyna, who according to her Twitter profile is a sociology PhD candidate researching “motherhood, families, and radicalization,” runs a Twitter feed full of racist messages. 

“I need white women who live in my state to stfu about what this state is and isn’t,” Reyna tweeted on May 19. It’s unclear what she was referring to, but what is clear is that this school board candidate stereotypes white women and demeans them because of their skin color. 

White women are often a target for this leftist school board candidate. “you know what's almost more annoying than a white man mansplaining something to me, white women telling me something I been known bc they wanna hear they own voice,” Reyna wrote on Nov. 9, 2020. 

Trips to the grocery store are apparently traumatic, too — because, you know, white people. 

On December 18, 2018, Reyna wrote, “Also, something about the grocery store gives people a sense of entitlement. I cannot count the times I’ve been disrespected in a grocery store by white folks *especially* if I have one of my children with me and *especially* by white women. 

“But...feminism. Y’all can keep it.”

But the grocery store isn’t the only haven of horrors for this race-obsessed tweeter. Apparently her favorite coffee shop is overrun by white women who, um, look at stuff too long. 

“on this gorgeous Saturday afternoon, my favorite coffee shop has been overrun by old white women who have a staring problem,” Reyna wrote on Feb. 22, 2020. 

Even kind gestures by white people trigger her. On Nov. 11, 2016, three days after Donald Trump bested Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, Reyna tweeted this gem: “It took my white coworker three days to ask me how I was doing. I'm not sorry that was so uncomfortable for you.” 

There’s more. One of her tweets suggests that police officers and those who support them are racist. 

Here’s Reyna’s tweet from Nov. 9, 2020: “started my day off by telling the Honda dealership I've been working with they can no longer earn my business bc they raised a huge blue lives matter flag over the weekend & I don't give commissions to racists.

“guess we're going with a Subaru.”

One could spend a significant amount of time perusing Reyna’s Twitter feed, and Nampa voters should. There’s a disturbing amount of racism and hatred there. 

But what’s almost equally disturbing is the media’s near-blackout on her anti-white, anti-police messages. 

To date, a lone media personality — 670 KBOI’s Nate Shelman — has picked up the Reyna story. Shelman, who discussed the tweets during a segment on his show yesterday, asked the right questions about the candidate’s tweets and her ability to interact with the public. 

“Will everybody be treated fairly?” Shelman wondered. “Or just certain people?” 

Shortly after her racist tweets started circulating through social media, Reyna posted to her Facebook page that she stands by her messages. Reyna, who limited conversation on that Facebook post, did not respond to Shelman’s request for an interview. 

And why should she? Shelman indicated that he would pepper the school board candidate with tough and likely uncomfortable questions. 

What’s happening is clear: Reyna, like any good candidate, wants to limit her negative press. She doesn’t want to face Shelman, who would hold her feet to the fire on these nasty messages. 

It’s easy for the left-wing Reyna to shrug off Shelman, a conservative radio host. She can simply claim Shelman wouldn’t have given her a fair shot to explain her side of things. It would be more difficult for her to answer to the Idaho Statesman, the Idaho Press, KTVB, and Idaho Ed News. 

But, none of them are calling. No, a search for Reyna’s name or a listing of the upcoming candidates on those outlets’ pages yields nothing. 

It’s not like papers and media outlets aren’t interested in this type of thing. 

Hearken back to November 2019 when more than two dozen Middleton School District staff members donned sombreros and other traditional Mexican garb while standing with a border wall emblazoned with “Make America Great Again.” Every major news outlet in the Treasure Valley covered the fiasco. For days on end, KTVB, the Idaho Statesman, and Idaho Ed News filled their pages, screens, and air time with talk of the Middleton staffers. 

Idaho Ed News’ Sami Edge even followed up on the fiasco a year later with a story entitled, “Middleton leaders say they’ve learned from last year’s Halloween nightmare.” 

This is bread and butter stuff for these news outlets, at least when the alleged perpetrators aren’t leftists. Then, as we are seeing in the Chandra Reyna affairs, it’s crickets.

    So glad that parents are vetting these candidates. This is how these commies ( yes that's what they really are) weasel their way into the educational systems to destroy it

  • enemyofthestate says:

    Thanks, Dustin Hurst and Idaho Freedom Foundation. Shine the light! Reyna is extreme left-wing and humorless, waiting and watching each day to be offended. How many voters in Nampa does that represent?

  • Gerig says:

    Like Sue commented earlier, Racists like Reyna get away with this disgusting behavior because people don't take the time to vette their candidates. Nor do they ask the questions that will ferret out the truth. Time to get brave, parents. Your kid's psyche is at stake. First clue will be when they come home hating themselves because of their skin color, you know, what God gave them.

  • Concerned parent says:

    You should look up her criminal history on icourt over 50 cases
    Quite a few criminal plus no drivers license no registration and no insurance! She wants mandates but doesn’t want to follow laws! Also a few collections and they wasn’t her running district money! This is who the teachers union in Nampa is backing

  • Bee says:

    Good work Dustin/IFF.
    Apparently TwitTweets come back to bite you in the butt.

  • Brad Gee says:

    Houston, we have a problem, I am an old white man and I can relate to her Tweets. I am tired of old white men and women, with their Christian values trying to tell everyone one else how to live their lives.

    • Carol says:

      I’m sorry

    • E says:

      I will never tell you how to live, but I will pray for you🙏🏻

    • Kitt Rockne says:

      You're on to something, Brad. I think the problem voiced here is that folks aren't willing to be honest about the racism that exists in this as a whole & within this community, and they are quite unwilling to face it. It's always existed here from indigenous tribes to the Chinese => Japanese (internment camp at Minidoka) => African-Americans => Africans (refugees). I've seen it in action as I was born & raised here. She's not white & God knows we need MORE white people on the school board. Fearful of diversity because it's a blunt reminder that they don't want any other reflection of this broad community than whiteness.

    • Helen Brinkley says:

      And you, old white man, are racist also! ( do you like being labeled?)

    • john says:

      I’m with you Brad. I too will pray for you and for E.

  • TheNoticer says:

    "Racist" is term invented by Communists to use against Whites.
    The term itself is Anti-White.
    Miss Chandra is not "racist". She is Anti-White. It is an important distinction.
    Hostility against Whites must be described by that term, not the nebulous and Communist term "racist".

  • Audiefnmurphy says:

    The commies won't be able to walk down the street ,soon enough.
    God bless 🇺🇲

  • Brian Lenney says:

    Good one. Is Shelman a conservative? Seems like a moderate to me...

  • David Encore says:

    This is Nampa. We can't allow people who discriminate against any skin color to be on our school boards. Who thinks it's time to point out who the real racists are? 🤔 Isn't this blatant enough? Who do you think will immediately claim she is being discriminated against when/if something is done about it? 🤔

  • David Encore says:

    Communists used to be hated in this country. Now they are taking over. This is crazy town.

  • E says:

    I pray she doesn’t get voted in for anything until she meets Jesus🙏🏻💖🇺🇸

  • Freedom is1 says:

    Where’s our Governor? He likes to make noise when it’s time to get elected. He has all the authority to put a stop to this!
    I think we need a new Governor! Just sayin.

    If parents don’t stand up for their children, and demand this stops, who is going to do it? Parents standup, make a great noise! We will stand with you and for what is right!

  • john livingston says:

    A racist is a racist. Those who don't call out racists---the MSM, are just as bad. Shame on her and shame on them

  • Greg G. says:

    She is biased and her agenda is not supportive to the education of our children and young adults. She displays irrational behavior and should not be elected to the school board.

  • Jean-Guy Tremblay says:

    The legacy media isn't reporting on this? I'm shocked. I'm stunned. Give me a few years to pick my jaw up off the floor.

  • South of Heaven says:

    IIRC, Conservatives’ mantra is that racism doesn’t exist, in society or systemically so this is merely virtue signaling.

  • john nashman says:

    i do not do tweeter or face book and i know they can be easily hacked
    if she did say these thing she may be a resist but ( i am an older white man )(very older )
    but did dustin ever interview her or ask her about these posts
    if not he is not doing his job
    just looking stuff up does not do it
    i am not letting her off the hook if she said these thing but why is the question
    i for get the term that is being used to examine all of our history
    could be something in her past that she needs help with

    • Brad Gee says:

      That something in her past is being on the other side of white privilege. If you don't believe white privilege exists, you are the problem. I was born and raised in the South, and I have seen racism, but nothing like what I have seen in Idaho.

      • R.I. Augustus says:

        So much white privilege that a young black school shooter just walked free on bail today. Yeah...good times. Racism is an egregore of hateful neo-bolsheviks who seek the collapse of white european ideologies and socio-political systems. If you believe that whites should cower to other racial insterest groups because of our skin color, you sir are the problem. People are inherently tribal. Dont be fooled.
