The University of North Carolina is facing student and faculty protests after the school secretly agreed to provide $2.5 million to a neo-Confederate organization to preserve and display a Confederate statue known as Silent Sam. Last year anti-racist protesters toppled the statue, which had stood on the UNC Chapel Hill campus for over a century. Critics are accusing the school of helping to subsidize white nationalists.
