This past weekend we saw the “Flags Across the South” take to the Statehouse grounds to display Confederate flags and memorabilia. It was only four short years ago the Confederate flag was seen flying over our capital city, and I am personally glad to see it has found a home elsewhere. That being said, I do not believe that we should burn these flags or remove historical markers containing information about the Confederacy.

A letter to the editor and for the members of the Board of Trustees,
You need to be paying attention to USC’s search for a new president.
During any holiday season, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or Christmas, people love to complain about the consumerism of celebrating a holiday. But what happens if the excess of a celebration costs the American people hundreds of thousands of dollars?
South Carolina is one of the only states that still does not allow the promotion of homosexuality in a classroom setting, and while that isn’t something that is strongly enforced, it is definitely something I wish I knew about before coming to USC.
How many of us can truly say we do not support any brands that go against our political views? Do we really put our money where our mouths are, and, better yet, is it truly possible?
From “Queer Eye” to “Queer as Folk,” the “Q” in LGBTQ+ has started to be reclaimed by the community.
There are two types of segregation: de jure and de facto. De jure segregation is an enforced separation of groups in a society by law, while de facto segregation refers to an unspoken division of groups based largely on the common ideologies and cultural similarities of the respective groups — as it is at USC.
As a college student, I understand how hectic juggling school and work can be while also trying to maintain a social life. It’s stressful, so it can become easy to stray away from a grounded and positive mindset. It is common for us to take for granted the positive things we already have in our lives while we are working towards building our futures. Often times we get so distracted by minor setbacks along the way that it has the ability to drastically shift our focus.
Every June, more companies come out with Pride campaigns. From social media to granola bars, it seems like everyone thinks being gay is something they can capitalize on without actually supporting.
Each morning on my commute to work, I play music and drink my coffee. I’ll take my headphones out to greet the shuttle driver, but then proceed to get lost in whatever song I am listening to and prepare for the day ahead.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Since then, there have been a lot of milestones for the LGBTQ+ community, but there are still many things that make it scary and dangerous for people to come out.
Nowadays when you scroll through any social media app, your feed is filled with images that obviously have been edited and tweaked to the utmost capacity. The use of filters, contrast and other edits are outlets for creativity but is overusing this altered reality healthy for them and their followers?
Pride is not a party for you to crash.
When my acceptance letter arrived from USC, I was excited, to say the least. Getting into college is supposedly a crowning achievement, especially for a black man. The United Negro College Fund says that black males boast an alarmingly low college graduation rate nationally. So, with this and my mother’s expectations, I saw it my duty to accept this challenge fearlessly.
As I finish out my four years here at South Carolina and my time as the editor-in-chief of The Daily Gamecock, I have felt myself labeling everything as the "last.” The last day of class, the last night of production, the last function, the last late-night Cookout run, and this, the last thing I will create for The Daily Gamecock.
Have you ever thought about the process that produces your meat?
USC has been applauded in the past for its approach to the mental health of its students, but a history of excellence does not guarantee the continuance of the trend.
If you’ve been to the major places on USC's campus such as the Russell House bookstore, Thomas Cooper Library or near the Humanities buildings, chances are you have likely come across a Starbucks.
As students become upperclassmen, it is perfectly OK for Russell House to take a back seat so that students can get involved in more specialized communities on campus.
