Supreme Court rejects challenge to affirmative action

July 1, 2016

In many instances, the Supreme Court’s recent affirmative action ruling upholding the University of Texas’s affirmative action program was overshadowed by a same-day order overturning President Obama’s executive order to ease illegal immigrants’ path to U.S. citizenship. World News Tonight With David Muir, while leading its broadcast with the immigration decision, didn’t even mention the […]


Orlando, my hometown

June 24, 2016

Although I now call Greensboro my home, there are pieces of my heart that will forever reside in Orlando, Florida. The city in which I was raised from the age of four years old. When I close my eyes I can still see my adolescent hands holding, what appeared to me at the time, larger […]


Excavating higher education’s sins of the past

June 10, 2016

Amid the pomp and circumstance of these weeks’ college and university graduation ceremonies, it’s worth noting the “excavation projects” going on at some of them and in higher education generally. What’s being dug up is more evidence of the depth and breadth of America’s betrayal of Black Americans and its own ideals. Specifically, during this […]


Dylann Roof does not derserve the death penalty

June 3, 2016

Dylann Roof, the unrepentant racist who killed nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, is – no question – a monster. He prayed with people before reciting racist cants and annihilating people. After his heinous acts, it was discovered that he was a rabid racist who had wrapped himself in […]


HB2 makes me feel less welcome, but the fight gives me hope

May 27, 2016

Six years ago, I moved to North Carolina to accept a one-year teaching position at Elon University School of Law in Greensboro. My wife, also named Angela, and I, had just made the final repair on our home in Florida, where we planned to live for the rest of our lives. But during my year […]


The evolution of Gov. McCrory into right-wing culture warrior

May 13, 2016

One of the many repercussions of HB2, the sweeping anti-LGBT bill signed into law by Gov. Pat McCrory in March, is that it has forced McCrory to finally take a side in the debate about North Carolina’s future. Would he try to cling to his carefully crafted and misleading image as the moderate former mayor […]


Washington D.C.’s version of “Saturday Night Live”

May 6, 2016

Last Saturday, President Obama attended his eighth and final White House Correspondents’ Dinner as president. Below are my favorite Obama zingers from the night: I do apologize – I know I was a little late tonight. I was running on C.P.T. – (laughter) – which stands for “jokes that White people should not make.” (Laughter […]


Does anyone care about education?

April 28, 2016

Americans do not support education. We give lip service to it. We like to think that free public education is a good thing and we often pat ourselves on the back about what a great job we do. But be honest. We don’t really care about being educated. We have all heard the story of […]


Our future is on the ballot in this election year

April 22, 2016

As I consider the consequences for our future during this critical election year, it is no overstatement to observe that our future will be on the ballots that will be cast on Election Day this November just as surely as will be the candidates for office. The virtually nonstop television coverage of the presidential candidates […]


We, the people, call for police video to be public now

April 18, 2016

People want equal protection under the law. We do not want to hinder criminal investigations or violate legitimate privacy interests of anyone. The decision regarding withholding or redacting police video should not be made by the police or their supervisors. It should be made by a two-thirds vote of city council, which is directly responsible […]
