Did Torrey Pines go all-white?

What Almost Factual News means to readers

Last year, S&P reported that Colony Credit Real Estate, majority-owned by Colony Capital, was looking to sell a $145 million loan on the Fairmont Grand Del Mar luxury resort (above), developed by Doug Manchester in the northern reaches of San Diego.

Pathetically satirical

Satire articles are pathetic attempt to copy The Onion (“Torrey Pines High School becomes all-white campus in effort to combat racism,” SD on the QT: Almost Factual News, July 30). It is confusing for most readers and they believe the article is true. It is click bait which causes a waste of time making people more dumb. I will not read nor click any article from the Reader and do not support a racist magazine who fakes this white article in attempt to cause hate. Your advertisement of weed is against federal law. Try advertising and writing about family businesses or some truth. I am upset on this fake article and that you promote it.

F-worded disgust

I just read an article about Torrey Pines being a white school and I have to say that I am absolutely disgusted by this rhetoric being spread about children. I understand that there’s a systemic issue, but I feel like trying to combine humor on such a serious topic is unconscionable. It’s morally bankrupt. I feel like this person is speaking out of turn about things that are painting a broad brush of the school without even knowing the efforts of the people that work in that community or even knowing the demographics of that community. And then to put children’s faces as the cover and put pictures of the cheerleaders holding up the words “white” as if it’s their responsibility or their fault is absolutely disgusting and I am appalled that this would be published. I don’t know if it was supposed to be like an Onion take, supposed to be humorous, but it was nasty and the Reader is fucking gross for fucking publishing this.

Just asking

I just wanted to know if the Torrey Pines HS story is factual.
