Re: “Silent Sam Protesters Are Taking a Break, But Vow They'll Be Back

Silent Sam has always been a popular place on this original campus lawn for students to gather. This is a beautiful place at UNC, the oldest public university in our nation. A little further down from Sam is the old stone wall, another popular place to sit in the evenings for people watching.

Re: “In an Open Letter, 2,943 Fellow Duke Alumni Ask Trump Senior Adviser Stephen Miller How He Became Such a Horrible Person

For a letter striving to promote tolerance and diversity, it failed and became nothing more than a left rant against Stephen Miller. That was neither tolerant of his diversity nor respectful. Thank God for our First Amendment. Right?

Re: “Donald Trump Promised Big Bucks for Infrastructure. Could That Save Light Rail?

Light rail is a fun idea, but definitely not cost effective to build, maintain or use. The upcoming infrastructure spending is better focused on building/repairing bridges/roads that serve cars, motorcycles, and commercial buses and trucks for providing goods and services. Vote no to light rail.

Re: “In the White-Dominated Space of Corporate Folk, Kaia Kater and Others Are Finding Their Footholds

The mid-19th-century minstrel banjo is one of the first manifestations of the meeting of these musical worlds - Africans and Europeans. Along with the fiddle, the banjo was the most popular instrument in African-American music in the United States through the 18th and into the 19th century. In the early 1800s, white musicians began to take up the banjo in imitation of southern African-American players. By the mid-1800s, white professional stage performers had popularized the banjo all across the United States and in England and had begun their own banjo traditions as they popularized new songs. Because these musicians usually performed with blackened faces, they came to be known as blackface minstrels. Interesting history.

Has this type of threat happened in Durham before? How about the greater RTP area?
