AMERICA’S RAPECULTURE PROBLEM
Dear Readers,North Carolina is growing. Whenmy amily rst moved to Charlotte 18years ago, we moved into a housethat had one small shopping centerwithin walking distance, and verylittle else within a short car ride.Now we are surrounded by multipleshopping centers, a variety o neigh-borhoods and a growing number o business centers.But such growth requires socialprogress as well. It requires thestate o North Carolina to accept thegrowing varieties o peoples withinits borders. It requires leaders whosupport these peoples, regardlesso sexuality, citizenship, race, creed,sex or socioeconomic status. And itrequires equal opportunity or all.But in recent months, North Caro-lina has seen a regression in the veryareas where we should see the mostprogress. We’re seeing less supportor small business, or immigrantsand or education. North Carolina isbeing remixed into something an-tithetical to healthy growth. In thisissue, we address the changes ourstate aces, and how they could a-ect our uture.Happy reading!Carey HanlinEditor-in-Chie
