Child Watch: The Education Inequality Struggle

December 18, 2015

Editor’s Note: Marian Edelman’s editorial which appears in the Dec. 17 hard copy issue of the Peacemaker has been edited for length. Below is the full version. This has been a hard year for poor children and children of color in a gridlocked and cantankerous Congress. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replacing the No […]


Who put the NRA in charge of our national security?

December 11, 2015

With the echo of gunshots from the San Bernardino massacre ricocheting across the country, and another American community reeling with new broken hearts, it’s time for change. Since 1968 more than 164,000 children have died from gun violence in America—three times more than all the American soldiers killed in action in the Vietnam War and […]


Win the vote

December 5, 2015

Democrats looking toward a spirited 2016 presidential campaign should feel upbeat about statewide races for governor, lieutenant governor, council of state and perhaps the U.S. Senate. But the real seat of power in North Carolina is the Republican-dominated General Assembly. With veto-proof majorities in both chambers, Republicans in the legislature can walk over pretty much […]


The ugly truths America must face

November 30, 2015

On November 14, Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia announced the university will rename two buildings on campus named for two 19th century Georgetown University presidents: Thomas F. Mulledy, who in 1838 arranged the sale of 272 slaves from Jesuit owned Maryland plantations and used the profit to pay Georgetown’s construction debts, and William McSherry, […]


We are all immigrants

November 20, 2015

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory and 29 mostly Republican state governors are opposing efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in the United States. This is an obvious pandering to the fear mongering that exists in the current context of immigration discussions. Does the governor not know that refugees from Syria have been in line to come […]


ObamaCare improves health of Black America

November 13, 2015

Black Americans continue to face serious disparities in education, employment and in economic development. While more than 45 million Black Americans have made some type of progress during the past seven years of the Obama Administration, there is still much more to be done to end the vast racial and socioeconomic differences between Blacks and […]


Greensboro Municipal Election Endorsements

October 30, 2015

This year’s Greensboro City Council and Mayoral Election may be remembered for low voter turnout, however the accomplishments of the current council members should not be forgotten.


Why we must fight for environmental justice

October 23, 2015

The Civil Rights Movement in the United States identified a long list of issues that were broadly considered the historical and contemporary evidence of systematic racial discrimination and injustice. With the 2016 presidential election rapidly approaching, the critical importance of environmental justice for Black Americans, Latino Americans, Native Americans and for other people of color […]


New forms of predatory lending threaten consumers

October 16, 2015

Over the past decade, no state has authorized either predatory payday or car title loans. That consumer financial progress came about through a combination of state and local advocates working with state lawmakers to bring a sense of financial fairness to their local communities. But just like a bad penny that won’t go away, new […]


School voucher programs all wrong

October 9, 2015

The North Carolina Supreme Court recently upheld the state’s Opportunity Scholarship Program which sends public dollars to private and religious schools. The Opportunity Scholarship Program is basically a wolf in sheep’s clothing better known as school vouchers. While this program has been upheld in North Carolina, an Oregon state court found a similar law unconstitutional, […]
