A student law group at the University of North Carolina has threatened to sue the school if they refuse to remove a controversial Confederate statue which stands prominently on the campus's main quad. The area around the statue, known as Silent Sam, has been home to near-daily protests and occasional clashes between counter-protesters and law enforcement. On Wednday, a letter sent on the behalf of the Black Law Student Association and other students to university chancellor Carol Folt and UNC system president Margaret Spellings stated that allowing the statue to remain standing violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. According to Raleigh's News and Observer, the students plan to file complaints with the Department of Education and the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.
