Re: “Why Can’t North Carolina Let Go of the Lost Cause?

They are a reminder of what white people did to try to maintain power and wealth. It was one of the darkest periods in American history, and the effects are still rippling through our society today, sometimes tearing it apart.
Keep the statues, add new plaques beside the originals to remind us that these were erected to support Jim Crow laws. History starts with the original author and it's a rough draft at best.

Re: “The Impossible Burger Is a Veggie Burger That Almost Bleeds

Gosh, I can see Remedy selling a gimmicky GMO veggie burger, but Fiction Kitchen? I love that their dishes aren't commerically produced, and that they started out with one simple goal: "fresh, creative, locally sourced and carefully prepared" cuisine. Hopefully, they aren't veering off the path that makes them such a huge success.

Re: “Carolina Jews for Justice Says NC Pride Schedule Fix Isn't Enough

Cancelling the parade affects all people. I usually went just for the parade, not the night events. Parents take their kids to the parade, not the night events. So, now no pride for me this year and many, many families across NC. And a loss of income for many businesses who saw a huge influx of shoppers and diners.
Awesomely disastrous "solution" for this situation.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Donald Trump’s Campaign Swears Donald Trump Is No Longer a Racist Birther, and We Totally Believe Them

Karen - the "birther movement" was started by Hillary supporters. There is no record that Clinton or anyone in her campaign ever advanced the allegation that Obama was not born in the US. No journalist has found a connection between the birther movement and Hillary or her campaign.

The certificate is real, the vetting was done.

FactCheck has more information, as well as do many *reputable* news outlets.

When faced with two bad choices, it is best to be well-informed and able to tell fact from fiction before blindly dismissing an entire party over... misinformation.
