Re: “UNC Chancellor Turns Down Speaking Request from Richard Spencer

Nope, UNC does not have to allow a self described white supremacist who literally wants genocide against many UNC students, staff and faculty members to come to campus. Smart choice. Why hand a microphone to a bigot? He can walk down the street and await the first of justice instead.

Re: “You Can Now Go Drink at RDU on Sunday Mornings

Being able to buy alcohol while I do grocery shopping will save me a trip (I always shop for groceries on Sunday morning). I like this idea.

Re: “Following Accusations of Rampant Misogyny and More, a Raleigh Promoter's Career Is Effectively Over. What Comes Next?

Having emotional or substance abuse issues is never an excuse to treat other people poorly due to their gender, sexual orientation or race. His victims deserve compassion first.

I'd like to see his posts about Southeast Raleigh gentrification ,as its where I'm from.

Re: “What About the Pigs?

I want to echo the sentiments of Ellen and Jessica and state that the way that we treat animals, in this case pigs, is a pressing societal issue that needs to dealt with. I want to believe that humanity has the capacity to show compassion towards innocent animals. I know that our culture is entrenched in carnism (ie: animals are here for use to use, eat and abuse), but that doesn't mean that it's moral or acceptable. Animal justice is on the horizon.

Start with the "Meet your Meat" documentary and then watch "Earthlings", if you are unaware that they are sentient beings that deserve respect. They greatly resemble our companion animals in terms of behavior: dogs and cats! Once I saw how animals( cows, pigs and chickens) are treated by humans I accepted that my life needed to change and that I could not longer be complicit in their abuse. Now if only it were easier to avoid industries that harm humans, opting out of all animal products has removed my participation in animal suffering. I hope that you will too, for their sake.

Re: “The Wings Are Great, But M Kokko's Vegan Curry Udon is a Surprise Standout

Is it really that much of a shock that a vegetarian meal can be just as tasty if not more tasty than one that includes meat? It's all about the spices and the combination of flavors. Hopefully the Kokkos will add more than one vegetarian item to their menu.

"I was impressed by her commitment to vegetarian ethics in the face of our audibly crisp chicken."
And as a long-term vegetarian that sentence was incredibly eye-roll worthy. Most people that eat fried food and are vegetarian object to eating animals. It's not impressive, it's a choice.

Re: “Batalá Durham Can Stay Put in Central Park. Now, What to Do With the City’s Noise Ordinance?

The residents chose to live next to a designated event space for weddings, concerts and all manner of gatherings. Central Park is for events and practices like Batala's.
And the complaint has only been from one person.

Re: “Governor Cooper Calls for the Removal of Confederate Monuments

It seems that he's more a fan of the status quo, Norf. But only time will truly tell whether he is a friend or an enemy of the people.

If you don't stand up against racism, you condone its evils.
