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 […]


Guilford Dems take N.C. House District 58 voters for granted

April 14, 2016

The Guilford County Democratic Party leadership gathered Saturday morning (April 9) for a special meeting to elect a replacement to fill the unexpired term of late freshman N.C. House Rep. Ralph Johnson (District- 58), who died on March 15 from complications of a stroke in early February. Not only did Johnson lose his re-election bid, […]


The time is always right to do right

April 7, 2016

March 31 was the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s last Sunday sermon at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. in 1968 before his assassination four days later: “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” Dr. King said he believed a triple revolution was taking place in the world – a technological revolution, a revolution […]


Women’s History Month: Black women in the peace movement

March 25, 2016

Some words seem rarely mentioned in this highly toxic political season. We’ve heard about bombs and walls, but very little about peace. One is almost tempted, when some of the candidates are speaking, to burst into song – give peace a chance. In this Women’s History Month, it makes sense to reflect on women and […]


Republicans created ‘Frankentrump’ monster

March 18, 2016

President Obama has seen this horror movie before. His political opponents not only distorted his positions when he first ran for president, but deliberately lied about his place of birth, asserting that because he – according to their fiction – was not a U.S. citizen, he was not qualified to be president. Donald Trump, who […]
