UNC Police Officers want you to believe that UNC Police don't know that gyou're not allowed to open carry a handgun on campus:

A Silent Sam supporter brought a gun to UNC on Saturday. Police asked him to leave.

This article gets me:

https://www.wral.com/students-unc-must-do-more-about-racist-threats/18298531/

The students want more safety. Not happy that other landmarks around campus have been vandalized and don't like the perceived treatment of white supremacists by UNC police. They claim that the police are working with the white supremacists. Then in the same article they want more UNC police to be able to close down campus to the public.

Quote :
"The flag swap was noticed hours after UNC-Chapel Hill police found racial slurs on the Unsung Founders Memorial, which honors slaves who built the campus, and an installation outside the Hanes Art Center.

The names of activists Lindsay Ayling and Maya Little, best known for spreading her own blood and paint onto the 'Silent Sam' Confederate monument a year ago, were included in the racist graffiti found last week, officials said."

President Trump's lynching tweet led me to read about Wyatt Outlaw, who was the first African-American elected to be Town Commissioner and Constable of the town of Graham, North Carolina.

On the night of February 26, 1870, a party of unidentified men rode into Graham, dragged Outlaw from his home and hung him from a tree in the courthouse square in Graham.

This would be the same courthouse square where a confederate statue was later erected in 1914 and where the following rally was held just two years ago:



What I also find interesting about this story is that, according to a 2007 column in Burlington's Times-News, a plaque was placed on the street where the lynching occurred, stating, "Racial violence in Caswell & Alamance counties in 1870 led to martial law, under Col. Geo. W. Kirk, impeachment & removal of Gov. W.W. Holden," and not mentioning the lynching that occurred at the site.

According to the head of the committee that would have placed the plaque at the site:

Quote :
"The committee did not want to commemorate the graphic details of a man’s death... In the end, the responsibility here is come up with something that informs the public but is acceptable to all parties and that the community would welcome."


I'm assuming that the community would have included those individuals pictured above.

While at the fair, I saw all the folks with their confederate flag stickers that said "I support confederate heritage". Saw a couple in UNC attire (and more in State attire), and one in Pink Floyd shirt.
