Everyone keeps talking about the police officers and the victims in Charlotte as if they were the only people responsible for that shooting.
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.
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.
That is the first word that comes to mind following the tragic events unfolding in Charlotte, Tulsa and many other cities around our country.
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.
As a Member of Knesset, my job is to speak out on behalf of the best interests of my fellow citizens and my country.
Yesterday a man was lynched.
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.”
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.
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.
Although I like football, what makes me really proud of Carolina are the exceptional students throughout its history, like Delaney Robinson.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Trigger warning: Sexual Assault
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.
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.
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.
