TO THE EDITOR:

Jalea Morris made several good points in her June 16 column, “It is more than just a joke.” As she pointed out, the relatively common “There are starving kids in Africa!” — a response to complaints over minor inconveniences — can misrepresent human societies in Africa, and, indeed, divert the conversation from the truth of problems closer to our Carolina home.

Letter: ​HB2 is a deterrent to attending UNC

TO THE EDITOR:
