Letter: Why does life matter? Challenge the system

Everyone keeps talking about the police officers and the victims in Charlotte as if they were the only people responsible for that shooting.



Letter: ​Gov. McCrory allowed council to clarify HB2

An urgent question before the people of this state is whether the original ordinance of the Charlotte City Council in regard to gender rights harmonizes or conflicts with the present implications of all relevant state government constitutional and statutory relevance and authority.



Letter: ​Refusing to pledge only divides America

In wake of ongoing issues affecting our country, refusing to pledge to our flag is a tactic sought after by various groups. This form of protesting an issue is both unsuitable and offensive.



Letter: Student government stands with Charlotte

Unacceptable.

That is the first word that comes to mind following the tragic events unfolding in Charlotte, Tulsa and many other cities around our country.



Letter: Gov. McCrory needs to give HB2 up

TO THE EDITOR:

I am disgusted by the finger-pointing over HB2.

Since Gov. McCrory and the Republican legislature passed this disastrous law, North Carolina has lost thousands of jobs and more than $395 million.



Letter: ​Israel is standing in the way of peace

As a Member of Knesset, my job is to speak out on behalf of the best interests of my fellow citizens and my country.



Letter: ​Stand with NC HBCUs protest violence

Yesterday a man was lynched.



Letter: ​One shamrock does not an Irish Bar make

With reference to your article of Sept. 6th “Wilmington sports bar will take over Fitzgerald’s spot on Franklin Street,” I would like to point out that the prior bars in that space were never true Irish bars, or having “an Irish focus.”



Letter: ​Coming to terms with the 1978 election

I am trying to get full credit before November for my vote totals in my one statewide political campaign — the 1978 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina — so as to add credibility to my forthcoming freelance editorial endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President.



Letter: ​Challenge the GOP by going out to vote

Despite court rulings that North Carolina voter ID laws were unconstitutional, Republicans have not rested in their efforts to suppress voter turnout across the state.



Letter: ​Delaney Robinson is the best of Carolina

Although I like football, what makes me really proud of Carolina are the exceptional students throughout its history, like Delaney Robinson.



Letter: ​Be safe at night, make sure you’re bright

Once again, I write to remind pedestrians to cross the roads carefully to avoid the emergency room or morgue. Especially at night, I would like to see: fluorescent clothing, a white handkerchief, a flashlight or reflective tape.



​Letter: UNC failed to help Delaney Robison

Bravo to Delaney Robinson (Daily Tar Heel, September 14, 2016, ‘I did everything a rape victim was supposed to do’) for having the courage to “go public” about the horrendous sexual assault she experienced in February. And another “Bravo” to her dad for his support and love.



Letter: Open up the DTH’s board of directors

Recently due to budget constraints, The Daily Tar Heel’s board of directors made the decision to terminate two employees on the paper’s small professional staff who had a combined half century of experience guiding this institution.



Letter: ​McCrory’s logic favors politics over reality

Gov. McCrory and the Republicans show how tone-deaf they are by blaming “politics” for the NCAA, ACC, NBA, companies like PayPal and entertainers like Bruce Springsteen pulling out of North Carolina.



Letter: ​UNC needs a museum for Southern history

TO THE EDITOR

UNC Walk for Health would like to suggest the establishment of a Museum of Southern United States History on the campus of the University of North Carolina.

This proposed museum would feature exhibits, artifacts, memorabilia, photos, videos and a library, and host symposiums, seminars and panel dicussions with an emphasis on the antebellum era.



Letter: Campus Y response to Delaney Robinson case

Trigger warning: Sexual Assault



Letter: ​People are to blame for the loss of wolves

As The Daily Tar Heel has noted, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently decided to transform the Red Wolf Recovery Program to focus on captive, not wild, wolves.



Letter: ​DTH unfair to UNC fraternities

As a member of a fraternity, the article you published titled, “Just what you need: a safe space for white men,” baffles and disappoints me.



Letter: ​Make a statement through protest

As a third generation Tar Heel, proud alumna and football season ticket holder, nobody loves this University and its sports teams more than I do. As a woman, a prosecutor, and a friend to several sexual assault victims, however, nobody is angrier than I am over the University’s handling of sexual assault cases.
