Never will I understand the cognitive dissonance in those who tell minorities critical of America to “go back to where they came from” while actively supporting a president who campaigns on the idea that their beloved country is heading toward a state of despair and doom — a state that only a borderline-autocratic ruler can repair (Make America Great Again, anyone?).
Earlier this month, Dr. Mohammad Abu-Salha, Yusor and Razan’s father and Deah’s father-in-law, testified at a congressional hearing about white nationalism and hate crimes. And based on the way he was treated on the stand, America has learned nothing from the shootings four years ago.
I’m from Florida, in case I haven’t mentioned it before. There are many, many great qualities about my home state, but nothing quite gets me as nostalgic (and passionate) about my childhood than Publix, a supermarket chain founded in Florida.
If you’re part of the School of Media and Journalism, I’m sure you must have heard the news: the AP Stylebook updated its guidelines.
Jummah is the holiest day of the week for Muslims, falling on a Friday. In the afternoon every week, Muslims gather in mosques and prayer rooms around the globe for their Salatul-Jumu'ah, a congregational prayer.
In 2014, a faceless litigative group, entitled the Students For Fair Admission, sued UNC on grounds of admissions discrimination by race. By tomorrow night, the Asian American Students Association will have voted on whether or not their name is inscribed on an amicus brief in support of Carolina’s race-conscious policy. The AASA executive board has endorsed the University’s position, and we strongly encourage that you support this measure.

Four years ago, Deah Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha were shot, in cold blood, inside their Chapel Hill apartment. Their neighbor, who had a history of Islamophobic social media posts, shot Deah in the head and chest in the doorway. He continued into the apartment, and then shot Yusor and Razan execution-style in the kitchen.
I’ve always prided myself on being a pens-and-paper kind of girl (I mean, I do work for a print newspaper). I own a drawer full of notebooks, use specific pens for the types of notes I’m taking and jot down reminders on the palm of my hand. I look down on classmates who exclusively use e-books and take notes on Microsoft Word.
In the past decade, fertility rates in the United States have dropped dramatically. Young adults, specifically college graduates, experienced the greatest decrease in fertility rates, largely due to cultural and economic factors. The Editorial Board was intrigued by this finding and decided to ask some of its female members about their opinions on having children after graduation.
2018 was, well, a year.
Vanity Fair recently published an article titled, “‘They say we’re white supremacists’: Inside the strange world of conservative college women,” a truly fitting end to this semester. The article profiled four conservative women on UNC’s campus and the “oppression” they feel from the liberal student body and faculty. Their article is reminiscent of the many profiles about “Middle America” and the “silent majority,” providing these underrepresented groups a platform and sympathy for voting for a morally corrupt presidential candidate.
It’s alarming to see how normalized the term "enemy of the people," popularized by Joseph Stalin used toward anyone who disagreed with his ideology, has become in the U.S.
Broward County has always been the overlooked cousin of Miami-Dade, which is the county right below it in South Florida. There isn’t much to see there, except for Fort Lauderdale Beach during spring break, the guitar-shaped hotel, the Hard Rock, right off the highway (don’t ask us why it’s there either) and a vast landscape shaped by strip malls and sad remnants of the Everglades.
The 2018 midterms were the first election I voted in, and the first major election since the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., which forever changed the community I grew up in.
Well, everyone. Spooky season is officially over and it’s time for the holidays. The days are getting shorter, the air is colder and Starbucks is beginning to release its specialty flavors, which only means one thing — cuffing season has begun.
“Sucks you have to put down you’re Asian,” a classmate told me my senior year while I was applying for colleges. “It’s going to be so much harder for you to get in.”
We believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
It’s taken me an excruciatingly long time to develop the perfect study playlist.
On Monday, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announced that the Trump administration will accept at most 30,000 refugees. Compared to the 110,000 ceiling set by President Barack Obama the year Donald Trump took office, it’s the lowest level since the program was enacted in 1980.
