The spectre of a high school being built on the site of a potential slave cemetery in Northeastern Wake County is leading to some pretty tough words being used by critics.
As noted in today's article, critics on their Web site say that letting the school be built would be like treading on the suffering of the slaves buried there. (While one historian says it's "clearly a slave cemetery," no official determination has been made by the state yet.)
"What a disgrace to our heritage and our nation," according to the Web site. "I guess the slaves are in their way, and they are to be discarded just as they were, when they were of no longer use to their owners."
