Review all of Kavanaugh's documents

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

If Kavanaugh is a good choice for Supreme Court, there is no reason to rush this nomination through. If he is a good choice, he will still be a good choice after all his documents have been released. If he belongs on the Supreme Court, he will still be a good choice after senators have had a chance to review the documents.

Rushing this nomination process through without the full release of documents and without the time necessary to actually read those documents makes it look as if the GOP is trying to hide something. If Sens. Tillis and Burr truly believe that Kavanaugh is a good choice for the Supreme Court, they should not hesitate to allow a thorough and fair review of his work history. Our North Carolina senators should not rush this process and saddle the American people with a lifetime appointment for a justice who may not deserve to sit on the bench.

On July 17, President Trump visited our fair city. He arrived days after tweeting that four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

We have seen this racist trope often throughout our history.…

How many racist statements must this president issue before the weight of his words and actions drag him beneath the waters of that “swamp” he so fervidly pledged to drain? And what will be the proverbial “straw” that finally breaks the back of affirmative silence that…

I was born and raised in North Carolina and left the state as a young woman. The state is beautiful with its mountains and coast, but recently the beauty was marred by its citizens at the recent presidential rally. As citizens we have the right to vote for the candidate of our choice, the right to…

Hate has certainly had a good week. It began with four American members of Congress having their citizenship questioned and told to “go back to where they came from” because of their criticism of U.S. policy and it went downhill from there.

At a Trump rally in North Carolina,…

On Sept. 23, 1957, Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus used the National Guard to block black student enrollment in white segregated schools. Approximately, 1,900 whites showed up at the school the morning the "Little Rock Nine" showed up for school.

The whites chanted "go back to Africa."

The Pitt County Branch of the NAACP stands against the language of hate and bigotry that left a devastating mark on our community. We live in times when we should be able to look to our nation’s capital for messages of unity and hope.

We respect the office of the presidency as an American…

Tonight is a time to try my soul. I turned on my television around 9 p.m. and was ashamed of my fellow citizens of Pitt County. I heard “send her back” chanted by those citizens. I heard the sounds of hostility in those voices I never believed I could hear from people I might know. I…

The Trump-instigated chant (“Send Her Back”) didn't surprise me, but I am not one who believes this is Greenville's culture. Greenville citizens have always been cordial to me, even the ones who hate my guts.

Trump was proud of himself as he fired up his brain-dead fans and approved the…

In a childhood song, all that the bear that went over the mountain got to see was another mountain. It was my introduction to the sameness of life’s patterns. The steady ticking of the clock, the endless drumbeat of the mundane, and sometimes, the horror that never stops.

This is also true…

David Ransom enlisted in the Continental Army believing in the enlightened concepts of democracy espoused by brilliant men and women in Europe and the colonies. There would be justice through an independent judiciary and a representative legislature that could prevent the recurrence of tyranny.…
