We are all immigrants
By Gabriel Fraire
November 20, 2015

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory and 29 mostly Republican state governors are opposing efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in the United States. This is an obvious pandering to the fear mongering that exists in the current context of immigration discussions. Does the governor not know that refugees from Syria have been in line to come […]

By Benjamin F. Chavis Jr.
November 13, 2015

Black Americans continue to face serious disparities in education, employment and in economic development. While more than 45 million Black Americans have made some type of progress during the past seven years of the Obama Administration, there is still much more to be done to end the vast racial and socioeconomic differences between Blacks and […]

Why we must fight for environmental justice
By Benjamin F. Chavis Jr.
October 23, 2015

The Civil Rights Movement in the United States identified a long list of issues that were broadly considered the historical and contemporary evidence of systematic racial discrimination and injustice. With the 2016 presidential election rapidly approaching, the critical importance of environmental justice for Black Americans, Latino Americans, Native Americans and for other people of color […]

By By Charlene Crowell
October 16, 2015

Over the past decade, no state has authorized either predatory payday or car title loans. That consumer financial progress came about through a combination of state and local advocates working with state lawmakers to bring a sense of financial fairness to their local communities. But just like a bad penny that won’t go away, new […]

School voucher programs all wrong
By Gabriel A. Fraire
October 9, 2015

The North Carolina Supreme Court recently upheld the state’s Opportunity Scholarship Program which sends public dollars to private and religious schools. The Opportunity Scholarship Program is basically a wolf in sheep’s clothing better known as school vouchers. While this program has been upheld in North Carolina, an Oregon state court found a similar law unconstitutional, […]

If there was ever a propitious time for African Americans and Latino Americans to unite to advance the cause of freedom, justice, equality and economic empowerment, it is now.

By Gabriel A. Fraire
September 18, 2015

When Donald Trump first came out with his horrible description of Mexican immigrants, I was asked to write an editorial response because I am Mexican-American. At the time, I said I wasn’t interested in giving this hatemonger more space in the news media. Nothing he says is real and I question if he even believes […]

We have a perception problem in America
By Chantelle Grady
August 26, 2015

A few nights ago, I was leaving my Godparents’ house (we live on the same block). I am fortunate to have two sets of Godparents, and now that my parents have both “crossed over,” it’s nice to have people in my life who are a sort of extension. It was quite late when I left, […]
