Mar. 28th — Survey finds one-sided political affiliation among UNC-Chapel Hill faculty

Mar. 22nd — Discrimination for diversity's sake doesn't help minorities succeed
The controversy over minority enrollment in North Carolina colleges gets right to the heart of diversity, the cardinal virtue of academe.

Mar. 1st — Racial intimidation at N.C. State
On Thursday, Feb. 28, North Carolina State University Prof. Phillip Muńoz's political science class on "Law and Justice" was interrupted by a group of black students. The group passed out slips of paper to students as they entered the classroom, then lined up along the side wall of the classroom. The group never spoke, not even to respond to the professor's repeated invitations to state their case. They were there to offer support, or better stated, intimidation, on behalf of a black student upset about the class.
