    SANFORD - A group of local Chinese-Americans took their support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to new heights on Saturday. The results were visible across much of the Triangle. An ad hoc group of local Chinese-Americans who are linked via a messaging app called WeChat – developed by Chinese company Tencent – pooled their resources to hire a single-engine plane towing a banner that proclaimed: “NC Chinese Americans for Trump.” The 180-horsepower Aviat Husky A-1B’s scheduled four-hour flight path started at the Raleigh Executive Airport in Sanford and included a flyby of Carter-Finley Stadium prior to the game between...

    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.

It was Feb. 10 and Barakat, 27, was in her first year of family medicine residency.

But then Barakat noticed that one of the texts mentioned her 23-year-old brother, Deah Barakat, a dental student at the University of North Carolina in...

    The only thing more elusive than an attractive liberal feminist is a conservative Christian mass murderer, but that doesn’t keep Team Progressive from pressing on with its never-ending snipe hunt to find one. The latest search for the left’s Great White Hopeless began last week when some jerk murdered three people in Chapel Hill. Some say, it was over a parking space, in which case he should be tried and, if convicted, hanged. Others speculate that it was because these three people were Muslim, in which case he should be tried and, if convicted, hanged. Are you sensing a theme?...

Police haven't said what may have compelled the accused, Craig Stephen Hicks, to allegedly carry out the attack Tuesday evening. He turned himself into police later in the night. But given the victims' religion and comments the alleged shooter apparently left on a Facebook page, many social media users wondered what role, if any, the victims' faith played. The victims were Muslims: Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23; Yusor Mohammad, 21; and Razan...

    Bart Ehrman, prolific author, New Testament scholar and former evangelical Christian, says it took him eight years to research and complete his new book, How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee. Yet, a group of fellow scholars responded in their book, How God Became Jesus, by claiming that the Christian-turned-agnostic's "sloppy" scholarship on Jesus' divinity leaves much to be desired. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, says his research reveals that Jesus, a first century Galilean, never claimed to be God, and that it...

Hillsborough lawyer Cynthia Shriner countered County Attorney Geoff Gledhill's claim that the county can't rescind the revaluation because Jan. 1 has come and gone. She said all the commissioners have to do is overturn a decades-old decision to revalue Orange County's properties every four years and take advantage of the state law that requires it only every eight years. At least three other counties scheduled to implement revaluations...

    UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA-CHAPEL HILL, April 28, 2007— Veterans and troop supporters turned out for a troop support rally in the heart of a typically liberal/leftie campus under the Gathering of Eagles banner this past Saturday afternoon. Like most top-tier universities, UNC-CH has its generous share of Marx-spouting faculty spawned in the 60s, their anti-war sentiments misapplied to the current locus of the War on Terror, the insurgency in Iraq. Gathering of Eagles volunteers set up the stage in front of the Wilson Library building in Polk Place, University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill. The DC Chapter of loaned two...

    A state audit released this week found that a 30-year "higher-level" employee at UNC-Chapel Hill had been providing the Social Security number of a dead person to university officials for identification purposes. Chris Mears, a spokesman for the State Auditor's Office, said the office is prohibited from identifying the employee, who retired earlier this month. But he said the employee was a "higher-level" employee who had worked there a little over 30 years. Mears said the employee was not a faculty member. UNC-CH officials said they could not identify the former employee or comment further because it is a personnel...

    CHAPEL HILL -- The Town Council unanimously backed a call Monday for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, in a meeting in which it managed to touch on politics, panhandling and downtown parking. The council also heard that feelings were somewhat divided about a possible "neighborhood conservation district" for Coker Hills. On the political front, the council voted 8-0 in favor of a call for impeaching President Bush, reacting to a petition from the Elders for Peace group from the Carol Woods retirement community in Chapel Hill. The council members, all registered Democrats, passed the resolution without comment. "The...

    This week's Voldemort Award goes to the New York Times for its account of a curious case of road rage in North Carolina: "The man charged with nine counts of attempted murder for driving a Jeep through a crowd at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill last Friday told the police that he deliberately rented a four-wheel-drive vehicle so he could 'run over things and keep going.' " The driver in question was Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar. Whoa, don't jump to conclusions, the Times certainly didn't. As the report continued: "According to statements taken by the police, Mr. Taheri-azar,...
