Eve Carson and the Carolina Way

John Drescher, News Observer, February 22, 2013

Jock Lauterer was stunned and angry five years ago when Eve Carson, the student body president at UNC-Chapel Hill, was abducted from her house near campus early March 5 and murdered.

Two young men from Durham, DeMario Atwater and Laurence Lovette, were arrested and eventually pleaded guilty or were convicted.

Lauterer, who teaches community journalism and photography at UNC, grew up in Chapel Hill and considers himself a townie.

He mourned the death of an exceptional young woman who was making a difference and was destined to do much more. He also was angry that violent crime from Durham had trespassed into his Chapel Hill.


Carson was gone. Lovette and Atwater were in jail and likely headed to prison for the rest of their lives. All he could do was shake his fist at the world. {snip}

Still, there lingered in Lauterer a feeling that he—Jock Lauterer, then 62 years old, college teacher, journalist and Chapel Hill resident—should do something, he told me this week.

That same spring, Lauterer had met Mai Nguyen, assistant professor in the UNC Department of City and Regional Planning. They were part of UNC’s first class of Faculty Engaged Scholars.

Nguyen saw that Lauterer, in developing his own response to Carson’s death, was paralyzed.

Nguyen and her students were studying and mapping Northeast Central Durham, the area where one of Carson’s killers lived. Lauterer accompanied them on a tour of the troubled area, two square miles known for violent crime.

The next day, Lauterer received an email from Nguyen. One of her Ph.D. students, Hye-Sung Han, had suggested that Northeast Central Durham needed the cohesion that comes from a community newspaper. The email exploded at Lauterer as if its letters were a foot tall.

He thought: That’s it!


And if he could put cameras, pens and notebooks in the hands of urban teenagers, maybe those kids would feel they were a part of something good, that they had a stake in their community.


Lauterer established a partnership with two journalism professors at N.C. Central University in Durham—Bruce dePyssler and Lisa Paulin. The three of them would become the publishers of the new newspaper. The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation provided a grant of $25,000.

The university teachers arranged for some UNC journalism students, most of them white, to meet with NCCU journalism students, all of them black. In their first meetings, they didn’t mix much. But then they split into two large vans (with Carolina students and Central students in each van), toured Northeast Central Durham and ended with a picnic lunch. The students bonded. That was a key moment: The college students were united in their effort to create a newspaper.

But they also wanted to involve teenagers from the neighborhood. To do so, they sought the support of local Durham leaders. That support was hard to win. They called a meeting of local pastors. Only one showed up. And he was the host.

“Maybe we were just too white and too Chapel Hill,” Lauterer thought.


A local high school journalism teacher suggested they involve kids from across Durham, not just from the targeted neighborhood. Good idea.

A session at the Boys and Girls Club on Alston Avenue in central Durham was a turning point. UNC student Carly Brantmeyer, in giving a photo lesson, engaged the teens in a way Lauterer didn’t think possible. Composition. Light. Vantage.

One of Lauterer’s own students had shown him how to reach the teens. When they got their hands on the cameras, they were transformed. Some of those teens became the core of the newspaper staff. Eventually, students from four Durham schools would work at the paper.

It was time to launch. But what would this paper be called? Residents of Northeast Central Durham kept saying their voices were not being heard. The paper would be called the VOICE.

It was published first online in September 2009 at durhamvoice.org. It made barely a ripple. That changed when it began publishing in print in February 2010. Now it is published in print once a month during the school year with 2,000 copies distributed at 60 places.



The VOICE writes about the people of Northeast Central Durham. It publishes stories about high schools, churches, restaurants, homeless people, volunteers, crime, grocery stores, urban farming, musicians, yard sales, celebrations and just about anything else in its neighborhoods.

The VOICE tells this community that it’s important enough to have its own newspaper. The VOICE is supported by grants and uses no university money. Various groups, including the city of Durham, and businesses have helped. The Daily Tar Heel, the student newspaper at UNC, funded the first year of printing. Scientific Properties donates office space for a newsroom.


Eve Carson spoke of the Carolina Way—not the since-discredited Carolina Way of the sports boosters but a Carolina Way more central to the mission and spirit of the university. She once defined the Carolina Way as “inclusion, involvement, diversity, acceptance, seeking to be great but always remembering that we must be good.”

The VOICE is Eve Carson’s Carolina Way. It is Jock Lauterer’s Carolina Way. It is the true Carolina Way.

As the fifth anniversary of Carson’s death approaches, may the VOICE and its student journalists speak loud, long and clear.

    Yeah – This’ll work out just fine.

    *shakes fist at world* and then comes up with a community newspaper with a circulation of a whopping 2,000, that makes sure it includes ‘diversity,’ ‘inclusion,’ ‘tolerance’ and ‘acceptance.’

    I’m sure Eve Carson ‘accepted’ her death on the altar of racial correctness.

    There are simply too many mentally deranged and delusional white leftists.

    • MobyWhite

      Rembember that Brittny Watts’ boss praised her the day after her Death by Diversity for “embracing all different kinds of people,” which is a religion.

    • The__Bobster

      I’m sure Eve Carson ‘accepted’ her death on the altar of racial correctness.

      Judging from her projects while in college, I’m sure she did.


      Carson was a prestigious Morehead-Cain scholar and a North Carolina Fellow, taking part in a four-year leadership development program for undergraduates. A premed student, she majored in political science and biology, taught science at a Chapel Hill elementary school, studied abroad in Cuba, and spent summers volunteering in Ecuador, Egypt and Ghana as part of a school program.

      • bigone4u

        If Carson had combined even a little bit of race realism with her misguided race idealism taught to her by her librard profs, she might be alive today.

      • C_C_Conrad

        And now she’s dead.

        This is the Neanderthal Option. Natures unforgiving law, the stupid must die.

        • Anders

          The unforgiving iron law of nature which these liberal fools either pretend doesn’t exist, or know not even of its existence.

          However, I feel sorry for a silly idealistic young woman that gets killed for no particular reason, apart from being White of course. I feel sorry for her Mother and Father, her brothers and sisters, her grandparents and all of her nice aunties and uncles. And I’m not a soft-hearted fool.
          What really angers me is when the family makes excuses for, and in extreme cases, even befriends and helps the killers.

          • C_C_Conrad

            I agree with you and feel the same. But let us not forget, these people have been warned for generations now. They just cannot or will not learn. Thus, the Neanderthal Option.

  • Snowhitey

    This white “altruism gene” just disgusts me. It serves no purpose for the in-group but provides every advantage to the out-group. The madness of these people always bending over – one way or another – is a sickness that goes far beyond guilt or redemption. Perhaps the only way to really sum up the white race today is…. stark raving mad. I’d like to be black only because I am so damn embarrassed of being white.

    • edie

      and it perpetuates all the bad aspects

    • Eagle_Eyed

      Don’t blame genetics, blame cowardice. Whites who ignore the danger which are black people do it knowing full well they are ignoring what intuition and common-sense tells them because conformity is comfortable.

      • StillModerated

        It can’t happen here.

        It only happens to other people.

        • Anders

          That’s right SM. They don’t care about what happens to other people.
          Everything’s ‘cool man’ as long as it doesn’t happen to them.

        • Tim

          Two weeks before taking Drivers Ed, our Highschool swim coach killed three of her own students in a head on collision before school. They had been coming in opposite directions to school and the girl driver reached down for a dropped comb for her wet hair. Our driving instructor threw a front page paper on each desk before writing on the blackboard. “It can`t happen to me…” I never forgot that.

    I’d be hard pressed to do better than that in a mocking caricature of a garden variety naive white liberal. I’ll just go ahead and assume he has the Volvo wagon with the radio tuned to NPR to complete the picture.

        I was going to say ‘good luck matey’, but…naaaa.

  • Biff_Maliboo


    “After-school Special” lame.

    But I’ll bet everybody got the warm-fuzzies, and isn’t that what really counts?


  • MobyWhite

    Eve Carson and Diversity, again. One look at her, and you could tell that she was the product of the most exclusive breeding program in human history. That’s the kind of White girl who gets ahead by jabbering about Inclusion at all the right times.

  • Jss

    “Maybe we were just to white and chapel hill”

    That’s also why Eve was murdered you idiot. People like you are what is killing the white race more then anything else. I simply can’t comprehend what goes through someone like Lauterers head. It leaves me speechless. A newspaper is your response to this innocent white women’s brutal murder by black scum? I mean..really?

    What the hell will that do? What can someone say about this monumental idiocy?

    • LaSantaHermandad

      The people who were in charge of Eve’s susceptible young mind all through her education are the ones who set her up for her terrible death. There should be consequences for them as well. I hope that they at some point might ponder on that and may they have endless, sleepless nights.

  • Jock Lauterer, 62, college teacher, and still a freaking fool!
    Hey genius, your noble experiment was tried 100 times not only waaay back when you were my age, but back when FDR was your age.
    At your age, Jock, you won’t live long enough to see what a steaming pile your experiment is.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      I agree. If I had a child murdered like she was my only reason for
      continuing to live would be revenge. These two don’t need to spend the
      rest of their stinking lives being supported by the people of NC;
      especially Eve’s parents. They need to a painful and frightening death
      just as Eve experienced., She asked them to pray with her. It breaks my
      heart to imagine the fear and confusion in HER heart. Here were two
      examples of “people” that she had dedicated herself to helping
      kidnapping her and God knows what else they did to her, knowing the
      mentality of the pongids, before they shot her in the face because she
      was beautiful and they’re ugly in body as well as soul. SOUL? What a
      f—ing joke!
      KIll them NC! TN, kill Cobbins and Davidson. KS, kill the Carr brothers. Spawn of Satan all of them!

  • IstvanIN

    from this Mai Nguyen, assistant professor in the UNC Department of City and Regional Planning. to this “Maybe we were just too white and too Chapel Hill,” Lauterer thought.
    I think this man has a disconnect in his head.

    Did it ever occur to Prof. Laterer that had Chapel Hill been all white Eve Carson might still be alive?

    • Katherine McChesney

      Maybe he does it because he wants to prove he’s better than blacks.

    • C_C_Conrad

      If Eve Carson was all white she’d still be alive. I guess that we can add in her parent to.

      • IstvanIN

        Her mom, dad and brother all looked white to me.

  • Bernie

    What the %$&^ is wrong with white people?

    • The__Bobster

      Some are brain damaged. Such individuals are praised and held up as positive examples by the elites.

    • Jerrybear

      Constant brainwashing has made roughly 75% of us impotent. You can thank all those phonies at the Oscars patting themselves on the back for the great job they are doing pumping out propaganda. Goebbels would be jealous at the control over thought that they wield. To think that you can actually convince a people to support their own subjugation and eventual extinction.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      They’re a victim of the same thing that brought about Eve’s murder. Again I quote the great Bob Grant, “Ladies and Gentlemen, War has been declared on us but we haven’t figured it out yet”.

  • AB7

    I skipped through the article looking for the punch line. I just assumed that one of them got murdered or something while on their little adventure. Give it time, that’s coming. No “good deed” goes unpunished, especially when one is “serving” that certain demographic that cannot be pleased.

    Man, these White liberals have their fingers right on the pulse of today’s urban youth! What “inner-city youth” isn’t into “urban farming” and “volunteers”? All these years, I thought liberals lived in a fantasy world of pretentious self-righteousness, but now I see how wrong I was. I need to ask myself what I can do to get the youths involved in yard sales!

    • StillModerated

      Q. What do you get at an “inner-city youth” yard sale?

      • C_C_Conrad

        Crack, cocaine, etc.

  • tremendouscoast

    So what new ideas will these well meaning white liberals come up with when this doesn’t seem to make much of a difference?

  • Tinfoil A22hat

    Hmmm I wonder if we can guide these unfortunates toward having sentiments something like this:

    “We as a community of persons living in a troubled area would like to express our regret and shame at the death of an innocent by the hands of some of our own.”

    Ahh hell with that. Here. Have some cameras, paper and crayons. Knock yourselves out. There. All better. Aren’t I great, atoning for my whiteness? Yayyyyyyy…

  • Don

    Eve Carson’s murder was the one that really affected me. She had so much going for her. The case got national attention, but not 1 mention of black-on-white crime or it being a hate crime. They shot her in the head 4 times. Those wild Africans should’ve been tortured to death on a pay-per-view special.

    • C_C_Conrad

      The old timers used to say that – “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.” there was a good reason. Maybe I should mention WILDERNESS EMPIRE here too.

      • nobody special

        I managed to acquire a used copy of Wilderness Empire from an online site.If you have any illusions about American Indians as being basically peaceful people who were taken advantage of by whites, you won’t have them when you’re finished reading it. Their savagery is almost beyond description.

        • C_C_Conrad

          Just as a footnote, there are 6 volumes to this set of books.

    • bigone4u

      The first head shot kills. The last three shots prove it was a hate crime. Torture is too good for those animals.

  • Ulick

    Two thugs murder an innocent white girl and some white Liberal professor rewards the community that spawned the murderers with a $25,000 grant. Meanwhile, there is a poor white community that could really use $25,000 that has never spawned murderers. White Liberal “elites” and professors look at working class whites with contempt while simultneously looking at poor minorities as their pet projects to show how progressive they are.

  • The__Bobster

    And if he could put cameras, pens and notebooks in the hands of urban
    teenagers, maybe those kids would feel they were a part of something
    good, that they had a stake in their community.

    I wonder how long it took for those cameras to make it to the closest pawn shop.

  • StillModerated

    Maybe reporters from The Voice can visit the Orange and Durham County courthouses and get a long hard look at the faces of the perps. I’ll lay even money that the felonies will be 80% African suspects.

  • bigone4u

    The professor’s brilliant idea well illustrates why Ph.D. stands for Piled High and Deep. Legally, Carson was murdered by two black males. Morally, liberals were accessories before the fact. When one of the young black “journalists” murders one of his young white colleagues for the victim’s Ipad, liberal profesors, especially Lauterer, will be morally guilty of murder. AGAIN!

  • 8uhb

    from the article:
    “And if he could put cameras, pens and notebooks in the hands of urban
    , maybe those kids would feel they were a part of something
    good, that they had a stake in their community.”

    I visited the Durham Voice website. Here are the journalists and their races:
    Brian Fanney : white
    Caitlin Owens : white
    Anna Starnes : white
    Marissa Peterson : black
    Melanie Johnson : white
    Elizabeth Byrum : white
    Cammie Bellamy : white
    jock : no pic but we knows he’s white from the article
    Deshauna Cook : no pic, I’d guess but I thought Melanie Johnson would be black, and Marissa Peterson would be white.

    Looks like another win for the white anti-whites!

  • Luca

    After years of murder, rape, crime, affirmative action, civil rights, desegregation, race riots, special education programs, welfare, free lunches, Headstart, job training, trillions in K-12 funding, the Freedmens Bureau, Reconstruction and every form of rehabilitation known to man have failed, finally, I repeat, finally, we have the solution. Let’s take pictures and start a newspaper to make diversity work…. If only we’d thought of this sooner.

    It is fulfilling to have Vietnamese scholars show us the way.

  • Brian

    Are even liberals buying this garbage anymore? Sometimes I just can’t believe it’s real.

  • Paleoconn

    Poverty can explain or predict crimes of property. It is mostly genetics that explains crimes of violence like rape and murder. Do-gooder Whites like this Lauterer sap refuse to understand that and pretend to do something to improve things.

  • Diamond_Lil

    This idiot is placing those white kids in danger.

  • Eurobeing

    Sick sick sick sick sick sick and more sick. What kind of a masochist is this guy. He is right up there with the hand cuffs, cato nine tails and spike heals crowd.

    “Talk dirty to me Mr. Black Man please talk dirty to me.”

    “OK you’s a punk ass white boy now get on your knees and give me some satisfaction.”

    “Yes Mr. Black man yes sir one blow job cumming right up.”

    • LaSantaHermandad

      That sums it right up! I felt guilty laughing but it so true. The fact is that I;m STILL laughing.

  • Glickstein44

    ugh…no civilized comment forthcoming…bye

  • guest

    Got it. The best way to remember Eve Carson is to guilt white taxpayers and local businesses into paying some blacks to pretend to write a newspaper, while the real writing is done by idealistic white students.

    Looking at the web page, there’s a headline about a woman who is working to stop violence against women. There’s also an article about homeless people. Of course the woman who is protecting other women from violence is a dark black woman, and of course the homeless people photographed are probably the only blond homeless people I’ve ever seen.

    I have no idea what kind of woman Eve Carson was, but the crazy self-hating whites involved in this crazy project are directly responsible for women supressing their natural instincts about personal safety, resulting in some bad situations.

    If these idealists really want to prevent future repeats, they should be volunteering for CCW training, and advocating for an eventual return to freedom of association.

    • boogieboogie

      The one’s that should be reading will never read,find information on the internet,listen to good talk radio.they will always have the,,, you owe ME!!!!!!!!!!!!. load up.good hand control,be READY.they really do not LIKE whites.

      • LaSantaHermandad

        Load up what? There is NO ammuniton available in any quantities. I’m really beginning to doubt if there ever will be. There may have been a run on it but after several week there still is none. If they can’t take the guns they’ll take th ammo.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      You are right. Eve was coming out of the school library when she was abducted. There are so many people on this site who actually express their feeling that she had it coming due to her liberal bent. Same with Amy Biehl.

      Anyone who expresses some perverted Schadenfreude over the horrible death of a beautiful, misguided, innocent young girl is no better than the Apes who killed her. Didn’t they also attack an Indian student in the same parking lot that night?

  • bubo

    No excuse for a guy 60 something years old to believe such nonsense. He was actually around in the “good old days” when white girls going to college didn’t have to worry about being raped or murdered by blacks.

  • NC Native

    I was born in Durham. Chapel Hill is being taken over by thugs. Go out on Franklin St any night and you will see several cop cars in the same predictable spots. Even had a gang shootout in a parking lot last year. DIEversity has ruined this once great area. Chapel Hill is an embarrassment to the South, no thanks to mass immigrants of liberal northern yankees and “academia”.

    But dont worry, still a few good ol boys around, esp under the scenes. This tragic murder woke a lot of ppl up. So did that crazy muslim who tried to jihad on campus, thank God he didnt kill anyone. That’s been completely swept under the rug. Rented a Jeep and drove through busiest part of campus to try and kill as many as possible…


    • Tinfoil A22hat

      I love NC. I attended college there for a year; this was back in the
      80s. Being a yank, I was assigned a dorm room with 2 blacks. When the
      parents of my friend that I’d been living with saw this, they started
      laughing and said “Don’t worry, we’ll get this fixed for you. Sorry boys; he’s not that sort of yank”.

  • LHathaway

    Most of these white girls being killed on college campuses are being killed by black boyfriends. At least there were a spate of them around that time. There was one that same year at UNCW at the town where I lived. Perhaps because of Eve Carson in the news there was more interest in covering them.

  • white liberal faggots suck

    typical Obama white liberal faggot

  • These people are never going to become equals. They are more like savages and Europeans must come to understand this and that the zionists are trying to destroy the European peoples. It’s that simple.

  • rebelcelt

    Exactly how does this newspaper stop violent black males from robbing, murdering, raping whites?

  • gitmo awaits

    And to think this double dose of feces stank spared the death sentence by some BS racial justice legislature act by a couple stank black legislators as payback for the past in the OJ mold. The killers are now shuckin and jivin in the cell for life on the taxpayer dole. Why dont all good US states pass laws to ship feces like this including cop killers etc to Gitmo since they lost their citizenship anyway as convicted murderous felons? Put this stank inside cells with jihadist Al Queda to see how tough they really are. Once even terrorist muslims find out how they kidnapped a beautiful young intelligent innocent female raped, sodomized robbed, and when leaving shot her point blank 4 times with a pistol before finishing her off with a sawed off 12g shotgun blast to her face that blew off her hand as she tried to stop it, maybe they will use some home made knife too sever both off their heads. No way any US military at Gitmo would stop it. Maybe the ones who behead them could be liberated too as a courtesy. Sending all killer stank to Gitmo would save billions in Castros backyard plus no racial justice act applicable.

  • Snowhitey

    A special thanks to my fellow Amreners for pointing out some good reads. While looking at the synopsis of “Pathological Altruism” on Amazon, I also came across “The White Knight Syndrome,” a title we should all be applying to the misguided among us, like Jock. Obviously, altruism would not be a handicap in a homogenous society but we don’t have a homogenous society! It’s sort of like feeding and clothing your killer right before that final act. But, they don’t see that or at least they’ve been programmed not to see that.

    I remember reading on Amren years ago about stories of incidents that woke white people up. One was from a man, I believe in Maryland, who had read somewhere about a case in DC and it went something like this… a middle-aged white couple were invaded by two negroes in their apartment. The couple was of upper middle class status. While sexually assaulting the woman, she begged her attacker for a glass of water. And, because her rapist allowed her to drink, she stated she thought they were good boys. Wow, if that isn’t a case of psychosis, I don’t know what is. In fact, this story woke me up, too, but it was to the fact that some white folks are completely and totally deranged. So, at the end, which party in this story do you think is sicker than the other?

  • Enrichment Specialist

    Hahaha what a waste of time. Pro football players making millions can’t lead crime-free lives and these hooders are supposed to now? Its genetics.

  • starlight

    This crime was one of the most traumatizing crimes I have ever seen in my life, let alone AmRen. I am quite surprised that the two criminals did not sexually assault her before murdering her.

  • Fr. John+

    Whenever a college faculty member has an ‘idea,’ you better watch out. Three generations of leftist/maoist philosophy has all but rendered most statist college professors as little more than ‘apparatchniks’ for the Stalinist order. I ought to know- I work in the field (undercover, of course!).
