Column: The Edit Board Secret Santa Roast!

The Editorial Board has had a lot of disagreements at board meetings this semester but our relationships are largely defined by mutual respect and good-natured ribbing. This may be a politically divisive time, but friendships still can, and do, happen across the aisle. So, without further ado, allow me to present the DTH Edit Board Roast.

Column: Shout-out to my fans

“Claude: ‘I am the worst writer on the DTH staff, and I am the most disconnected from objective reality.’ Paige: ‘Hold my Tide pod.’”

Column: My farewell (of sorts) address

"The Daily Tar Heel is an important Carolina institution, and I have been privileged to serve as opinion editor for this semester. So, it is with a touch of sadness that I am stepping down from my role at the paper."

Column: Pour one out for Fedora

Column: Senseless death, same as it ever was

A small death of my soul occurs every time I hear of another slaughter. I worry that enough of these small deaths, felt as a nation, will leave no one to take a hold of the wheel and swerve us off of this terrible path.

Column: The real enemy

I’m a journalism major, and I think often about what my career will look like after I graduate. It’s a dangerous time to be a journalist, and if our president won’t protect us, who will?

Column: Peter Tosh was right

 An important component of any bill that legalizes marijuana, however, should be the release of all prisoners held on marijuana-related charges, as well as some compensation for their legal persecution. Ending a long-standing tool of systemic oppression is not enough; we will also have to undo the damage that this oppression created.

Column: Is age just a number?

One of the most notable of these civil rights movements has been the transgender movement. Their success has been nearly unprecedented in political and cultural history. The rapidity at which they have succeeded at achieving recognition has been remarkable, especially when you consider that movements who represent larger portions of the population have taken much longer to achieve their goals.
