In reference to the column by Walter Williams talking about Kanye West being a problem for the Democratic Party, I admire Kanye West for standing tall and speaking his heart. I don't think most people, if polled, would agree that they like change.

If your friends told you that you could do certain things on a job and it would be OK even though your heart told you otherwise, you would be left with the question, do I think for myself or do I let my friends’ influence make the call for me?

I think young people are influenced by their peers more than their parents. It’s hard to be on a college campus and be outspoken as a conservative because the media and college professors have literally brainwashed America to believe its the Democratic way or the highway. If I knew a proven natural cure for cancer (they are numerous), but you had listened to a doctor's detailed advice to proceed with chemo and radiation that kills your good cells along with the bad, nine times out of 10 you’d side with the doctor.

Why? Because he's got the degree. Know what else he's got? The threat of the medical community. If he were to push natural cures, he'd probably be axed. 

This is the same way with politics. We're being indoctrinated into believing that the Democratic Party can deliver black America from its poverty and social assistance programs. Where is that happening? Where has it ever happened?

It hasn't and it won't as long as your vote is ringing up in November. It is a merry-go-round fueled by the lies and deception forced fed from generation to generation. For black America to pull itself up to where it believes it belongs, it takes thinking outside the box.

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

Years and years of willful destruction and bureaucratic neglect pushed by…

It's official. We just had the longest government shutdown in history over nothing.

Democrats have agreed to fund $1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barrier along the border, which is only a little more than what Trump would have gotten under a continuing resolution that funded the government…

Title IX has been a positive thing except where men's programs have been canceled to create slots for women. You can call it Title IX "balance," but ECU has 11 women's sports and only nine for men. To create this disparity ECU added women's lacrosse. Last time I checked, the state of North Carolina…

From Lake Norman to the Outer Banks, boating has long been a cherished pastime for many families across North Carolina.

Yet while many are familiar with the personal benefits you experience during a day on the water, the important economic contributions of boating are lesser-known.

Recently Courtney Patterson, a state NAACP leader, told a Greenville audience that the gains made by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 are in jeopardy. He encouraged Americans to be vigilant in protecting these rights and to exercise the privilege of voting.

I am tired of Democratic presidential hopefuls and their clean energy nonsense. Windmills and solar panels are generally a waste of time and money. Windmills don’t turn when there is no wind and solar panels don’t work when there is no sun. In each case the energy generated is DC, for…

If the legislature adopts the Carolina Cares plan advocated by Rep. Greg Murphy, hundreds of thousands of people will still be showing up at our hospitals without coverage, giving the hospitals the excuse to pad what they charge the rest of us in order to pay for treatment for the uncovered.…
