UNC Board Rejects Proposal to Keep Confederate Statue in Separate Building
Professors at the University of North Carolina are threatening a walkout if Confederate Statue Silent Sam, pulled down last summer, gets a new home anywhere near campus.
Odd the way these seem to come at Republican-led universities, like the ones helmed by Mitch Daniels and Margaret Spellings.
Students at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill are planning to rally to show solidarity with a fellow student, who was arrested for vandalizing the Confederate statue known as “Silent Sam” that resides on-campus.
But does it really matter who wins?
University of North Carolina’s Black Congress issued a set of demands after the student newspaper unearthed social media comments by the student body president, which were made years ago and were offensive in nature.
When states actually have to cut their budgets because they are hemorrhaging cash, guess who still wants more.
Not many Republicans make it into academia but one who did, Margaret Spellings, who captained the Department of Education during the Bush Administration, has come to find it rewarding.
They’re not afraid of being arrested but right now they’d rather remain incognito.
The University of North Carolina is taking a preventive approach to stop mass shootings.
