Re: “Study: Women in Wake County See Wage Gap Worse Than in Austin or Boston

No John, you are mistaken. Putting a sign up isn't intended to fix things. It's generally intended to signify support or opposition. This can be valuable, but in itself cannot be a solution. Pulling down a racist statue solves the problem of there being a publicly funded statue that supports racism but does not in any way address the gender wage gap. The subjects are not really related except in that people who have a basic respect for humanity resist racism and support gender equality. Hope this helps. (Feel free to ask someone to help you with any words you don't understand)

Re: “The Mayor of New Orleans Explains Why North Carolina’s Monuments to White Supremacy Need to Come Down

Yeah, it wasn't about slavery. It was about States Rights. . It's just a coincidence that the right to own humans was one that all the rebelling states wanted to keep. Wake up sheeple! (It's amazing and disgusting the brainwashing that goes on in the south about the civil war. I was explicitly taught all the myth;, good slave owners, slaves better off before liberation, R. E. Lee an honorable person, etc. All bullshit still being fed to people today.)

Re: “N.C. Representative Larry Pittman Calls Abraham Lincoln the “Same Sort [of] Tyrant” as Hitler and We Are Not Even Making That Up

Most of the casualties weren't even American at the time.

Re: “Pennies on the Dollar: A Tour of the North Carolina’s Gender-Wage Gap

"Furthermore, laws that mandate special workplace benefits to pregnant women are sexist towards men and biased against single people.."

No, these benefits would apply to any pregnant person, even if they were single of a man. Your premise is nonsensical. Covering a medical condition that only occurs in a limited number of the population is in no way discriminatory against those who do have to deal with that condition.

Re: “Mind the Food Gap: Who Does Farm-to-Table Serve?

The same reason you're scrutinizing a local free newspaper instead of fixing every other problem in the world?

Re: “Someone at the DNC Called Our Coward Governor a "Moronic Little Bigot," Get the Tissues

A slight disagreement; I believe HB-2 was primarily meant to curtail worker's rights. The moronic bigotry was a pretext to justify the bill and to distract and appease the moronic bigots that make up our moronic (and bigoted) Governor's voting base. I don't know that this moronic bigot hates the LGBT community, just that he's willing to use prejudice against them to further other goals. He's a bigot of convenience. The effect is, of course, the same.
