TO THE EDITOR:
I am writing in direct reference to the article “Charlotte shooting evokes student protests at HBCUs” released in the Friday, Sept. 23 issue of The Daily Tar Heel.
The article points out the multiple student groups across historically black North Carolina universities that have come together to protest the police shootings of black people.
While it is good to note that people are not silently letting these cases slide by, I think it is important to also acknowledge that more than just HBCUs are protesting.
Just at UNC, I know protests occurred with students wearing all black and gathering in the Pit and lying down in the Union. I think it is important for everyone despite difference in skin color, race, or ethnicity to come together on this issue to find peace.
Ideally, the article would have referenced the many protests going on at college campuses across North Carolina, no matter the historical background.
