It was minorities, not the violence, that was scary – Letters to the Editor

Excerpt:

“I am sick and tired of UNC students shopping in the supermarket of blackness; selectively taking what they want and leaving everything else on the shelves.

It is not uncommon to walk by W.B. Yeats and hear the newest hip-hop songs blaring in the background. However, when someone takes the music outside of the bar it becomes a problem…

Before considering Apple Chill a “gridlocked ghetto,” let us not forget UNC’s history as a zoo, according to Jesse Helms.

Since being here, I have witnessed people jumping over bonfires after a major victory, vomiting on the P2P and streaking during finals. So, like the Bible says, before telling our neighboring urban residents to remove the plank from their eye, trying removing your own first.”

A. Jarrod Jenkins puts it all on the line, in the above letter to the editor in today’s Daily Tar Heel, referencing Apple Chill and the commentary surrounding the events that took place, and it’s cancelling.

There has been many comments about Apple Chill, several of which have racist undertones. However, Mr. Jenkins has seen fit to let the cat out of the bag and say what he feels (and what I and a lot of others feel) is the truth. And I love it, and I love him for it.

I can’t wait to see what happens next…
