Letter to the Editor: North Carolina still has problems


The “potty police” no longer holds sway in North Carolina. Well, three cheers, and all that. But the state is still in the thrall of prurient Neanderthals with hairy backs.

No jurisdiction, no matter how well-intentioned, can pass any ordinance or law protecting the rights of any member of the LGBT sector of our society. In other words, pee wherever you like, but “from every mountainside…” let homophobia reign.

I still maintain my position: I didn’t sit at Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, for equal rights in 1960 just to roll over for homophobia in 2017.
