Re: “The Agenda: IOP seawall ordered removed; Black Lives Matter gathering tomorrow; Mt. P. debating home-building pause

I love how Obama calling conservatives on all their infantile horseshit is called 'divisive.'

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

We have to emphasize that Black Lives Matter because the policies and institutions ingrained in this country acts as though they do not matter.

Cops murder African American men with astounding frequency. They meet African Americans with disproportionate force. They profile based on skin color, and the results are deadly for the African American community.

Of course all lives matter--but recognize that white lives have always mattered. Recognize that cop lives have always mattered.

We now have to emphasize Black Lives Matter because we have a long and continuing history of the devaluation of their lives--and it deserves to be stated again and again and again until you toddlers can understand it.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

If you believe that all lives should matter, then the US needs to treat black people like their lives do, in fact matter. Right now that's not the case. It is not in our fellow citizens' and neighbors' heads. Senator Tim Scott wasn't describing a fever dream on the floor of the senate.

The knee-jerk retort "all lives matter" is so ingrained now, so automatic, that it sounds like "No, you're wrong, black lives don't matter." Because you don't mean "you're right, black lives matter just as much as mine," which is the whole freaking point of BLM. Black lives matter, too.

They should matter to you, if you believe in the "All men are created equal" mythos, if you believe in American exceptionalism. Because the pressure, harassment, and loss of opportunity that black Americans have to deal with ON TOP OF all the regular stress and challenge that everyone has to deal with is not a hallmark of a great country. If you really believe that "All Lives Matter," then show these people that you, too believe that their lives matter as much as yours.

Re: “Pokémon Go: The good, the bad, and the Blastoise

It is a really sad commentary that someone designed a game that really inspires Americans to get up, away from their keyboard-warrior posts and well-dented couches, and explore their physical world. I've heard of many players complaining that they actually got... ugh... exercise. Surely people being outside is a sign of the end times. Just ask any fuddy duddy sitting at his or her computer!

Re: “The Agenda: Tim Scott recounts police profiling; Thousands of abusers allowed to buy guns in S.C.

Race sure does occupy your thoughts a lot. I'm sure all the proud black conservatives are laughing at your tired little assumptions. Go ahead...just call them uncle tom like you want to.

Re: “The Agenda: Tim Scott recounts police profiling; Thousands of abusers allowed to buy guns in S.C.

The GOP enables profiling so how in the world does Tim Scott justify his membership in the very organization that thinks he is less of a person just because he is a minority? Only thing I can think of is thorough brainwashing or a complete mental disconnect from the realities of sanctioned racism. The GOP certainly makes it clear they don't like Obama, and it ain't just because he is a democrat. And anyone who thinks veiled racism is non-existent in the GOP congress, is either ignorant or, more likely, a racist themselves.

Re: “Mt. Pleasant council votes against moratorium on residential development

Mt. Pleasant will be ruined with overgrowth & "money hungry" development & developers.Just look at the city of Charleston & W. Ashley. It's all about the "MONEY".
I live on James Island & the exact same thing is happening between the city of Charleston & the so-called town of James Island. But Woosley could care less.
I'm so glad that Riley has retired but I'm really concerned about this other one they have now. The city & James Isl. will destroy Folly Rd.& James Isl. will never be the same. Now we call that "PROGRESS".

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

Just don't understand why the appearance of racism is an issue at this point in time. Obama has done more to change the complextion, and to some extent the gender, of most of the high level appointed officials in government. The White House has been very busy with ethic cleansing to the point he has the power to place heavy sanctions upon any police department that even has a hint of being biased against blacks in America. In fact, the ethnic cleansing has resulted in many of this countries cities having black police chiefs. It is difficult to understand why he has not done more to obviate racist undertones where, and if, they exist in the law enforcement community.

I think Trump's overt bigotry (almost no one is beyond his judgment - except straight, rich, orange, troglodytes) has emboldened the closet racists to come out and act out in other than peaceful ways. Moreover, you rarely hear anything from the white supremacist's camp but they are also making a lot of noise now because they too, are emboldened, and are ecstatic over the possibility of a Trump presidency and leader of the free-world.

Re: “Mt. Pleasant council votes against moratorium on residential development

I'm from Florida. Ya'll are fairly new to this international development boom dynamic. If you don't control development with the coastal watershed, character of the architecture, balance, and well being of the entire community as priorities, there will be hell to pay. Take my word for it, the global real estate and development industry doesn't give regional integrity a second thought outside of the style of the pool bar, their focus is singular.
