Hillary Clinton - politician and grandmom - plays to Kay Hagan’s base in North Carolina — CHARLOTTE - Was it happy coincidence that Hillary Clinton's granddaughter is called Charlotte? It certainly helped the former senator, former secretary of state, former first lady and perhaps future presidential candidate get the audience in the Charlotte Convention Center ballroom cheering with the line, "I can't tell you how much we love the name."

In North Carolina, same-sex marriage goes to church — CHARLOTTE - Standing ovations, applause, the sounds of tambourines - and rainbow colors everywhere, on banners and flags and adorning the stoles around the shoulders of clergy celebrating the fact that same-sex marriage is now legal in North Carolina.

Is the South really as bad as a report says it is? — CHARLOTTE - When the headline is "Why the South is the worst place to live in the U.S.," it's an invitation to trash talk. But isn't that what makes stories like this one in The Post so much fun? They are bound to unleash regional pride and get the blood flowing and the stereotypes flying in the comments section.

NFL meeting with black women’s groups on domestic violence a ‘productive’ beginning — Representatives of the Black Women's Roundtable said a meeting with NFL executives on Wednesday was productive, and just the start of a conversation. The roundtable had requested a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after the league announced a domestic violence advisory panel that included no women of color.

Black women’s groups to meet with NFL on lack of diversity in domestic violence panel — A meeting has been scheduled Wednesday between the National Football League and representatives of the Black Women's Roundtable, which had questioned the lack of diversity on a domestic violence advisory panel.

Fans and domestic violence survivors find common ground on an NFL weekend — CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Though Carolina Panthers fans can't be happy with the Sunday night thrashing their team took in a nationally televised game against Pittsburgh, they didn't mind thinking about football - just football.

Black women’s groups challenge lack of diversity in NFL domestic advisory panel — Amid the controversy and charges of too little, too late hurled toward the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell after publicity involving charges of domestic violence against players, one move has been praised - the announcement this week that the league has named four women to shape new policies on domestic violence and sexual assault.

Patricia McBride, Kennedy Center honoree, is no tragic ballerina — CHARLOTTE - "Ballerina" is hardly the profession that comes to mind when one thinks of work-life balance or "having it all." The women in the spotlight conjure images of beauty, but also sacrifice, single-minded devotion and lofty standards, impossible to reach.

When white friends don’t believe what blacks go through, they’re not friends — I still remember it perfectly, more than 10 years later. It's terrifying to be stopped in your car and approached by first one and then two more white police officers with their hands resting on their holstered guns. I kept my hands in plain sight on the wheel while they inspected my license and registration.

Violence - and nonchalance - in shocking Ray Rice video — Ray Rice looks so casual. After he hits Janay Palmer, his then-fiancée, now wife, the Baltimore Ravens running back stands over her, and when the elevator door in the Atlantic City casino opens, he drags her limp body halfway out, walks back and forth, then stands around, even chatting with people who come along.
