Letter: ​UNC should promote civil discourse

Those on UNC’s campus may have recently noticed a flier that encouraged stealing and burning Trump supporters’ “Make America Great Again” hats and attacking fascists.

Letter: ​Alt-right 'minority' isn’t under threat

On Feb. 13, Chris Watson wrote to the DTH that there is a small, but growing “minority” on campus. This supposed minority lurks everywhere, under many names, and in all departments.

Letter: DTH Yale editorial was misguided

Your comments about Zora Neale Hurston in your Feb. 14 editorial are misguided. The Trustees never considered the possibility of renaming Saunders Hall in the spring of 2015 for Hurston for two obvious reasons.

Letter: ​Policy-makers should observe classrooms

I have never been one to be scared of “bureaucracy,” but recent appointments have me worried. My reasons for concern are, to be honest, selfish. But I also find them valid, and I won’t stop fighting for what I think is right.

Letter: ​Alt-right letter rife with false complaints

You identify yourself as an alternative right sympathizer and in your letter to the editor complain about all us “lefties” and “intellectual do-gooders” suppressing your alternative right views.

Letter: ​Somers editorial was woefully uninformed

The Feb. 10 opinion piece “Keep a close eye on UNC’s new hire — another spokesperson” was an out-of-bounds, uniformed character attack that showed a lack of understanding of the relationship between the University and the legislature.

Letter: ​Let the fro grow for UNC Walk for Health

In support of North Carolina star basketball players Joel Berry, Isaiah Hicks and Justin Jackson and their sculptured afro dreadlocks hairstyles, UNC Walk for Health has begun a campaign to encourage the entire Tar Heel team to “let the locks of the hair on their heads grow long” for the rest of the season. (Nm. 6:5, Lv. 19:27: 21:5).

Letter: ​Chapel Hill should support nation’s laws

Your recent article entitled “Forum discusses immigrant rights and laws” exposes the hypocrisy and double talk which has run amok in Chapel Hill. Only in this “Alice in Wonderland” world can we pick and choose which laws to follow.

Letter: Religious values split our political parties

In the DTH editorial “For God or Party” you ask “if there are clear lines in the sand for Christian religious leaders” as they decide whether or not to stand with the Republicans, and specifically with President Trump.
