    A common sense bathroom guideline that men use men’s restrooms and women use women's restrooms has LGBT activists up in arms. The University of North Carolina (UNC) announced last week that it would comply with state law which requires students to use the correct biological bathroom, rather than choosing which bathroom best suits them, according to a report by the Daily Caller. UNC President Margaret Spellings confirmed in a memo to the university that the law would be followed on the college campus. This is what has caused backlash from the LGBT group, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). The organization...

    A “cultural competency workshop” at the taxpayer-funded University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is assigning scores to students based on how much “white privilege” they allegedly have. The “cultural competency” workshop, which appears to be mandatory for certain students, requires participants to “examine white privilege and how it is more powerful than other types of benefits afforded by society” by completing surveys, reports Campus Reform. “I can choose blemish cover or bandages in ‘flesh’ color and have them more or less match the color of my skin,” one statement on the surveys says.

    Some readers may have noticed that six months have passed since I wrote a column criticizing the whacky leftist administration at my university, UNC-Wilmington. I am happy to report the reason for the silence is that the wacky leftist administrators are now gone. In addition to that, on July 1st of this year our university got its first out of the closet conservative chancellor. You heard that right. UNC-Wilmington is now under the leadership of a conservative chancellor. And he makes no effort to hide it. Jose "Zito" Sartarelli is just the man we have been looking for. Unlike me,...

    CHAPEL HILL (WTVD) - A UNC town hall meeting on race relations on college campuses was disrupted Thursday evening by a group of students who took over the event and read off a lengthy list of 50 demands. The list of demands titled "A collective Response to Anti-blackness" labels UNC Chapel Hill as an "unethical institution" which exploits labor, runs an "athletic industrial complex", and treats people of color as "less than essential to the everyday running of UNC." The demands rang from the removal of the new system president, mandatory training for students and staff on the "historical racial...

The statue of a Confederate Army soldier was erected on campus in 1913 as a memorial to the more than 300 UNC students who died in the Civil War. The overnight vandalism came as no surprise to the local chapter of the Sons of the Confederacy. One of its members told Eyewitness News he was actually keeping watch over the statue until about 11:00 p.m. Saturday night, expecting someone...

    The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has just made an enormous political mistake. Just days after being put on accreditation probation in the wake of a massive academic fraud scandal, they decided to fire wrestling coach C.D. Mock. His firing comes under suspicious circumstances and has serious First Amendment implications. The university is claiming that C.D. Mock was fired because of his teamÂ’s performance. It is true that his team has not finished higher than fourth at the ACC Championships since 2008. But there is more to the story. Coach Mock is not your ordinary wrestling coach. He is also...

Of course, the answer is that no one knew. That is because they aren’t. Since there are not any Klansmen at UNC, a group called the Real Silent Sam Coalition is focusing on a building, Saunders Hall, which was named after a former Klansman. Decades ago, UNC named its Department of History building after Saunders, not...

The federal suits allege Harvard and UNC rely on race-based affirmative action policies that impact admissions of high-achieving white and Asian American students. The Harvard lawsuit also contends that the Ivy League university specifically limits the number of Asian Americans it admits each year. The Project on Fair Representation, an Alexandria, Virginia-based legal defense fund, said Monday's filings will be the first in a series of legal challenges against...

Athletes were able to get easy "A"s without actually going to class. The NCAA declined to sanction...

The convict, a mentally handicapped man, had read the entire Bible — something Adams had never done. He resolved then and there to change that —...

Kay Hagan, D-N.C., at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center. **SNIP** Biden told donors at the event that Hagan is able to work across the aisle with Republicans. “The only way to break through this gridlock is with people who can earn the trust of people on the other team, that’s why she’s so valuable,” he said. Biden also criticized the Tea Party at the event and said he hoped the Republican Party would move away from far-right politics.

    Dear Edward: I want to take the time to thank you for writing and telling me that I should be fired from my position as a tenured professor because I am “the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.” I also want to thank you for responding when I asked you exactly how you arrived at that conclusion. Your response, “because you insist that marriage requires one man and one woman,” was both helpful and concise. While I respect your right to conclude that I am the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America, I think you’re wrong. In fact,...

    Gabriel Lugo is president of the faculty senate at UNC-Wilmington. He's generally a nice fellow with a good sense of humor. But, unfortunately, on August 9th, he sent out a wildly unprofessional memo to the entire university faculty. His memo lends credence to my concern that the UNC system has become little more than a political lobby for the Democratic legislative agenda. Thus I will soon propose that we rename our school DNC-Wilmington to reflect the fact that it is an institution committed to politics rather than honest intellectual inquiry. In a section of his memo allegedly updating them on...

    CHAPEL HILL — The governing board of the UNC system voted unanimously Friday to ban campuses from letting students of opposite genders live in the same dorm suites or apartments. The decision reverses a housing policy that was unanimously endorsed by UNC-Chapel Hill’s Board of Trustees last year, and it comes just days before the plan was to take effect on the Chapel Hill campus. “Gender-neutral” housing was pushed for more than a year by UNC-CH students who said it would give some gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students a place to live free of harassment. Opponents, though, didn’t like...

    Author's Note: check out www.letterstoayoungprogressive.com for a free chapter of my latest book. Students and their parents need to be warned about the latest serious threat to liberty on America's college campuses. They have probably already heard of campus speech codes, anti-discrimination clauses, and sexual harassment tribunals. The latest threat takes the form of "disorderly conduct" hearings. Many readers are wondering what exactly constitutes disorderly conduct. The more appropriate question might be "what does not?" Of course, it is natural for students to have conflict in college. Many are away from home for the first time and they are...
  • UNC drops term ‘freshman’ in favor of ‘gender inclusive language’

    The University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill has removed the word “freshman” from official university documents, citing as their reason an attempt to adopt more “gender inclusive language.” We are “committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community,” reads a statement administrators sent to Campus Reform on Wednesday.

    EXCLUSIVE--The University of North Carolina, which is currently considering giving illegal immigrants in-state tuition benefits, denied an Army sergeant the same break even though she owns a home in the Tar Heel state and only moved away briefly because the military stationed her husband in Texas. Hayleigh Perez, 26, hoped to use her G.I. Bill to attend the UNC’s Pembroke campus near Fort Bragg, but the young veteran -- who served a 14-month tour in Iraq -- was told she did not qualify as a state resident because she had been gone for about three years. “I got frustrated. When...

    [snip]...On first blush, I simply could not believe Mr. Milloy. Then I looked carefully at the facts and at the law. This case involves the intentional exposure of human subjects to “fine particulate” matter, also known as PM2.5. EPA obtained their PM2.5 from a diesel truck. It is difficult to overstate the atrocity of this research. EPA parked a truck’s exhaust pipe directly beneath an intake pipe on the side of a building. The exhaust was sucked into the pipe, mixed with some additional air and then piped directly into the lungs of the human subjects. EPA actually has pictures...

    After accumulating evidence via the Freedom of Information Act that showed theEnvironmental Protection Agency conducted disturbing experiments that exposed humans to inhalable particulates the agency has said are deadly, sound science advocate Steven Milloy has sued the federal government. The trials, which were carried out at EPA’s Human Studies Facility at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, exposed subjects to fine particulate matter (called “PM2.5”) at extremely elevated levels for up to two hours at a time. EPA’s Web site on particulate matter and its 2009 “Summary of PM2.5 Risk Estimates,” stated, “an examination of cause-specific risk...

    .... the EPA has been conducting human experiments on people by piping diesel fumes from a running truck mixed with air into their lungs at a North Carolina university. The agency has ginned up yet another green crusade--the lethal dangers of diesel fumes. They even had a gas chamber set up to accommodate the environmental research project that shockingly recalls the death camps in Poland.Not surprisingly,the EPA is now in the process of being sued for conducting dangerous experiments on human guinea pigs. The courts will decide whether or not serious laws and practices were violated, including the international Nuremberg...

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A man who admits that he intentionally plowed into nine people on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus last week told authorities he was disappointed that more people were not around when he carried out the alleged attack. In a search warrant released Tuesday, Mohammed Taheri-azar told authorities that for two years, he had been thinking about some type of attack because "the United States government had been killing his people across the sea." Taheri-azar told authorities he had been carefully planning the attack for two months and had rented the Jeep Cherokee in which he drove on...
