Guest op-ed: Silent Sam speaks

The gate to UNC needs to be widened, not narrowed. There need to be permanent reminders, including of me, to symbolize our strained turning toward true respect and equality for all our citizens. Then, these pieces together can create a great space for open dialogue to bind and seal our wounds.

Editorial: Leave it to Beaver. Wait, what?

"Voting ought not be a privilege granted only to those who have the time and resources to do so, but rather a fundamental right extended to and enjoyed by all."
