Steve Bryant: Skin color isn’t excuse for failure in US

Despite the anecdotal nature of Al Campbell's story Aug. 17 about his own personal single-parent upbringing, he's right that the current 70 percent illegitimate birth rate in the black community isn't the problem that keeps some trapped in a revolving door of second-class status.

Mike Hughes: NCAE puts politics ahead of teachers

I’ve been having a good laugh lately at the way liberals have reacted to what has been called “the largest teacher pay raise in state history.”

Your View: Don’t fall for destructive rhetoric of radicals

The next time the media picks up a story and wants to incite a race war, let's not fall for it. I think it will work out much better for us as a nation to turn a deaf ear to “Rev.” Jesse Jackson, “Rev.” Al Sharpton and even Oprah Winfrey for that matter.

Paula Williams: Remember: Slow down in school zones

   Summer unofficially ends and a new school year begins on Monday in many schools,  including Guilford County.  Even if you are no longer in school, it is a good time for everyone to refocus on goals, to buckle down, and to get to work (and get ready for football).  And while doing so, here are a few reminders for us all.

Last week, I got in a taxi at a major city airport. At the first red light  the taxi driver drove right on through. … I shouted, "You just drove through a red light!"

Your View: Local support makes soccer classic happen

On behalf of the Piedmont Soccer Alliance and its board of directors, I want to take a moment and thank the city of High Point and the High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau for their generous grant, overwhelming amount of support, and assistance during our 29th annual Furniture City Classic soccer tournament.

Your View: Everyone can practice forgiveness

In life, you will not like everyone that crosses your path. This can even be healthy, because not all people are positive examples. Even as an adult, the people around you influence your behavior. You may not realize it, but they do.
