Statues, monuments and memorials

September 1, 2017

Many people are highly insulted by Confederate statues and monuments, and they want them taken down and/or destroyed. Since the latest movement in New Orleans to eliminate these relics that commemorate folks who tried to secede from the Union, resulting in a war that cost 700,000 lives, some Black people have been asking the questions: […]

Confederate statues are falling, not economic racism

August 24, 2017

Cheers to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, one of the first mayors to take Confederate statues down and to make the strong point that these statues represent nothing but oppression. More cheers to Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh who had statues removed in the dead of night to avoid Charlottesville-type confrontations between racist White supremacists (also […]

Hate has no place in our community

August 18, 2017

My colleagues and I here at NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad are deeply saddened and troubled by the events that took place over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. We wholeheartedly condemn the racist, bigoted ideology that fueled hate speech and violence, leaving one young woman dead and dozens injured. Our thoughts are with the people […]

Sustain Gov. Cooper’s veto, keep legal notices in newspapers

August 4, 2017

The following editorial also appears in the High Point Enterprise, Jamestown News and News and Record We want to thank Gov. Roy Cooper for protecting the First Amendment rights of Guilford County newspapers — and by extension, the county’s citizens — by vetoing House Bill 205.

Civil Rights Icon Rev. Barber Charts New Course Down Beaten Paths

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Is there no decency?

July 7, 2017

During the 2016 campaign, our 45th President once promised that he would be “so Presidential that it will be boring.” If only. Instead, he has managed to irk even his Republican allies by wallowing in the muck of name-calling, yet again, belittling a woman for her looks. Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski, 45 tweeted, was […]

The real reason GOP defends racial gerrymandering

June 23, 2017

There is a reason why Republicans in the N.C. General Assembly vigorously defend “stacking-and-packing” Black voters into a handful of so-called “majority-minority” voting districts when drawing congressional and legislative maps for North Carolina, even though the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled the practice as unconstitutional racial gerrymandering. A reason that Law Professor and Constitutional […]

On Courtesy, Race, Gender and the 45 Defensive

June 16, 2017

Courtesy flew out of the window in Washington parlance a long time ago. The minute a deranged Congressman stood up and hollered, “you lie” at a sitting President (this was South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson yelling at President Barack Obama), we knew that courtesy had taken a vacation. Courtesy took more than a time […]

White House cuts funding as Sen. Durbin pleads ‘Give struggling students a fair chance’

June 9, 2017

No one ever said that higher education wouldn’t cost money. Across the country, tuition is steadily rising and students are taking longer to pay off their student loans. Today, 44 million consumers share $1.4 trillion in borrowed student debt – more than double what it was in 2008. On average, graduating seniors with a bachelor’s […]

Leadership silence on domestic terrorism

June 1, 2017

Twenty-two people died and more than 50 were injured when a terrorist jihadist released a bomb at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England on May 22. The heinous act of terrorism was condemned worldwide, as it should have been. Our 45th president was full of condemnation, although his very limited vocabulary only allowed him […]
