Letter: DTH editorial was unfair to Greek life

TO THE EDITOR:

The editorial written on Monday about the Greek community’s responsibility failed to accurately portray the situation and provide constructive suggestions.



Letter: ​HB2 is a deterrent to attending UNC

TO THE EDITOR:

I am a freshman at Carrboro High School and I am in our school’s Sexuality and Gender Alliance Club. I would like to go to UNC to get a degree or two, but I cannot support them if they continue to enforce House Bill 2. People should be able to be themselves.



Letter: Greek life hurts UNC and its students

TO THE EDITOR:

I hate Greek life. I literally despise it.



Letter: ​Outsourcing student stores is best move

TO THE EDITOR:

I joined the Student Stores Advisory Committee with deep concerns about how possible changes in the store’s management might undermine employee well-being and the intellectual community that we value and seek to sustain at UNC-Chapel Hill.



Letter: Christians are often mocking God

The Christian concept of God is a mockery of God. Not to be offensive, but ...



Letter: New York hails in comparison to NC

Pottygate: Though scorners may sneer at and whittlings defame her,



Letter: ​Edwin Yoder’s letter was right on gen eds

Edwin Yoder is onto something.



Letter: Don’t ruin Student Stores’ natural flow

One of the most pleasant aspects of UNC Student Stores is the close relationship of the bookstore and the coffee bar, and the placement of the latter.



Letter: McCrory needs to address air quality

TO THE EDITOR:

With the American Lung Association’s annual “State of the Air” report out this week, we can breathe a small sigh of relief. 



Letter: ​McCrory has no idea what he is saying

TO THE EDITOR:

What Pat McCrory doesn’t seem to understand when he talks about House Bill 2 is that nobody is advocating that men be allowed in women’s restrooms. We are advocating that women be allowed in women’s restrooms. 



Letter: Lincoln was always against slavery

In his recent Letter to the Editor, “Questioning Reasons for the Civil War,” Kearney Smith from Green Mountain quotes H. L. Menken’s take on Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, which he begins with this sentence from Menken, “It is poetry, not logic; beauty, not sense.”



Letter: ​College gen eds are becoming too easy

TO THE EDITOR:

You carried a front-page tab (April 20) headed, “Defeated by Chickens,” and offering the information that “a chanticleer is a rooster.”

I noted the item with mixed feelings.



Letter: ​Getting ready for the second NC primary

Did you know North Carolina is holding a primary election June 7 for Congress in 11 of N.C.’s 13 congressional districts, and also a statewide primary for N.C. Supreme Court Justice the same day?



Letter: Johnson is wrong about hog farming

TO THE EDITOR:

Deborah Johnson is essentially a lobbyist and chief cheerleader for a $15 billion global corporation. Her claims in her April 11 letter that the industry “strictly manages waste” and “takes good care of animals” are hogwash.



Letter: ​Not all students are grade grubbers

TO THE EDITOR:

I understand the message behind the editorial asking students to “Uphold the Carolina Way,” and I feel the author’s angst towards “grade-grubbing.” However, I do not think that it is appropriate or correct to assume that all students trying to change or withdraw their grade are “grade grubbers”.



Letter: ​Kindness ought be shown to naysayers

TO THE EDITOR:

I appreciate Anna Dardick taking the time to respond to my letter.



Letter: ​Questioning reasons for the Civil War

The Lincoln mythology, disguised as history, has filled many volumes since the end of the War Between the States. Its sole theme is to say that the purpose of the invasion of the Southern States was to free the slaves.



Letter: HB2 contains several damaging provisions

As faculty, students, and staff at North Carolina’s colleges and universities who are committed to public policy that reflects sound data, careful reasoning and equal opportunity for all, we oppose “The Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act” (HB2) because it explicitly denies the rights of transgender people, prohibits local anti-discrimination measures and restricts possibilities for raising the minimum wage.



Letter: Impacts of alleged transphobic posts

TO THE EDITOR:

As a transgender alumnae, I’ve followed House Bill 2’s aftermath with obvious personal interest.



Letter: ​More knowledge is needed on trans folks

TO THE EDITOR:

This weekend, vulgar, transphobic messages surfaced in response to an unnamed student’s comments regarding House Bill 2.
