    Maybe you should look it up on Google. I will wager that the idiot "woke" crowd has no idea that the one of the suspected origins has to do with discrimination against, at that period in time, both Irish and Catholic and the school's struggle for equality. That would blow their liberal brain cell right out of their ears. Or they would just deny it's existence because they don't like it.

    They seem to forget that Washington Duke was in the Confederate Army, and the Dukes practically built the city, and of course the University. This stupid crap has to stop.

    Like a child the parents don't discipline, these morons aren't arrested, let out when they are arrested and just get away with their actions. Why would they stop?

    We have certainly had our disagreements recently, but I'm with you 100% here. From Wikipedia (I know, I know):

    The origins of the Tar Heel nickname trace back to North Carolina's prominence in the mid 18th and 19th centuries as a producer of turpentine, tar, pitch, and other materials from the state's plentiful pine trees.[1] "Tar Heel" (and a related version, "Rosin Heel") was often applied to the poor white laborers who worked to produce tar, pitch, and turpentine. The nickname was embraced by North Carolina soldiers during the Civil War and grew in popularity as a nickname for the state and its citizens following the war.[2]

    Embraced by soldiers during the Civil War, but not originating there.

    Keep moving, nothing to see here.

    This is an excellent explanation of the mindset of the people behind all this crap.

    I think that actually makes more sense. Like they say: "The simplist explanation is usually the correct one." I can't see troops of either side making detailed thoughts about a nickname. Poking a societal jab at low-level workers for their means of employment makes, IMO, more sense.

    Electronic Engineering describes a series of cascading circuit as Master Slave flip flop.

    Universities must now rescind all degrees given to electronic engineers, for using terms that linked to slavery.

    Maybe we should just ban sports teams entirely.

    Nobody's offended. Nobody is ever genuinely offended by these things the left has been targeting. They're just looking for any excuse/opportunity they can come up with to force submission to their will, and incrementally erase western civilization.
