Letter: Unpaid internships are unjust internships

Unpaid internships are an abuse of power. When any worker contributes more to an employer than the employer invests in the worker, the employer decides how to divide that profit.

Letter: Meantime's silence to UNC boycott

The Meantime Coffee Co. has displayed an inadequate response to the Board of Governors’ litigation ban and the university’s decision to not remove Silent Sam while enjoying increased profits from the UNC boycott.

DTH is silent on intolerance against SJP

Today, several posters calling us (SJP) terrorists were hung up around campus (I have pictures of them).  As an Arab and a Muslim, I constantly have to deal with this kind of blatant bigotry and stereotyping on and off campus, and have yet to see any coverage about it on any kind of media outlet in Chapel Hill after the shooting of the 3 Muslim students in 2015.

DTH, please change your website

Five of us are UNC alums. Our marketing team was looking into the possibility of buying ad space in the DTH a few days ago as part of an effort to recruit UNC pre-med students for our programs.  But I’ve got some bad news. We didn’t. And we won’t. Why? Because your website looks like it was designed by a three-year-old on a sugar high. It’s really bad.

Art Pope's racist history with UNC

In January 1975, a campus organization called the Union Forum used student fees to bring the National Information Director of the KKK to campus. His name was David Duke.   Black students at the time were outraged.

There are better ways to remember history

TO THE EDITOR: I write to offer insights on the crisis our campus is facing regarding the Silent Sam monument, from a comparative cultural context and issue: the erasure, and commemoration, of the oppression of Jews in Eastern Europe.

Abortion is still not guaranteed

Thursday September 28 is International Safe Abortion Day.  It is important to remember that abortion has not always been safe or legal in this country, even now, access to abortion is being circumvented by legislative action and continued stigma: with some states having only one abortion clinic.

Letter: Safes spaces do not exist with Silent Sam

TO THE EDITOR:  Brian Meares’ notion that Silent Sam promotes a space for “free and open discussion” is a baffling interpretation of this University’s hazardous idealism on “safe spaces.”

Letter: "Not my liberals" demonizes the left

TO THE EDITOR: The Aug. 29 opinion piece "Not My Liberals" shows a lack of empathy, hypocritical reasoning, and a poor understanding of leftist thought.

Dear UNC Community, I wanted to announce my candidacy for Chapel Hill Carrboro School Board.  I have served local children as a pediatrician, parent volunteer, and leader of the local Orange Chatham Chapter of the Autism Society of North Carolina and of the Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools Special Needs Advisory Committee.

Op-Ed: But have you ever talked to a Venezuelan, Claude?

TO THE EDITOR: Venezuela has fallen victim to a fascist government stemming from rampant nepotism and misinterpreted, cherry-picked ideas of socialism. Claude Wilson’s Sept. 12 column is, at best, a misguided and ethnocentric oversimplification of the economic, political, social and cultural problems that have been steeping in Venezuela for over 20 years, even before the rise of Chavismo. I know this because I grew up there.
