Re: “Emanuel AME pastor speaks out against campaign ad challenging removal of Confederate flag

"it was the murders of nine black parishioners at Emanuel AME Church by an avowed white nationalist that spurred South Carolina lawmakers to take down the Confederate flag that flew outside the Statehouse in Columbia."

The attack was blamed on White Supremacist rhetoric and Symbology, IE: the flag, and its removal was with the intent of reducing racial violence. Since its removal, there have been more instances of racial violence, not less.

Re: “Best New Farmers Market

Need signs and balloons on the street so those stuck in traffic see there is a market going on. Last week there were hardly any people there and the ones there mostly said they were there because of soccer practice, not because of the actual market. Shame they couldn't put simple signs or balloons by 61!

Re: “Best News For Horses

Charleston is weird. The natives bitch and moan constantly about tourists and the influx of outsiders moving here. Yet say one negative thing about the carriage industry that is primarily supported by said tourists and transplants, and the natives flip out. There is no consistency of thought. Which probably explains a lot about our city's current identity crisis.

Re: “5 local coffee drinks that are 100% better than Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino

This is just some of the liberal people that liberals survey. And this so-called poll involved just "HOW" many so-called coffee professionals?(mostly younger people,college)
Bottom line,STARBUCKS" make and sell the best coffee ever.
And that's my 2 cents worth'.

Re: “Best Restaurant

Chef Jason Stanhope creates approachable, delicious food that I wish I could eat every day. His talent is a gift to Charleston's culinary world and his name should be well known. Kudos to FIG - number one in my book!

Re: “Queen Quet advises on set of TV Show, 'Underground,' filmed on the sea islands

UNDERGROUND
An EXCELLENT trek thru the RESISTANCE journey of the African prisoners of WAR [so-called slave] within the wilderness of North America.
How our ancestors survived the horrors of Chattel slavery. The TRANSATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE the GENOCIDE of the MAAFA/ AFRICAN HOLOCAUST
It gives some chilling depictions of the modern evolution of the current white power structure as actualized within the economic system of plantation subjugation and terror.
And how these horrors continue within the established system of WHITE SUPREMACY=RACISM..
These theories /pathology related to white dominance will be manifested in terror during the bloody European colonial period and it framework of racist ideology unleased into the system of Nazi Germany.
This show exposes the psychological/sociological evolution within national sanctioned system of white racist exploitation of Africans that the black community are still fighting /resisting today...

As the series progressed, it shows the evolution of the white id... As a means to ensure social /economic dominance. As we still see today with the exercised of white skin privilege... with as African people we resist European hegemony always!!
This show is awesome and hot!! Everybody is talking abt this show!!!

Re: “Best News For Horses

The Devil is in the Details. The lowering of the temperature requires FOUR readings before the animals are allowed off the steamy asphalt. Add to that the thermometer located FOUR stories atop a hotel where cool breezes blow. That makes Charleston's new temperature law the HARSHEST IN THE NATION. No kudos deserved here!

Re: “Emanuel AME pastor speaks out against campaign ad challenging removal of Confederate flag

The belief that Our Blessed Flag of Dixie stands for racial hatred is a Yankee lie! We welcome blacks and people of all races AS EQUALS. Bigots like Dylan Roof who misuse our Southern Flag are the exception, not the rule. I support Sheri Few!. And Rev. Pinkney is wrong in saying that events like the Emmanuel Church shooting should not be allowed in politics; those are the very events THAT SHOULD be in politics. That's what motivates folks to do something about them.

Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

CCP I understand when looking at the available options of what could be considered as a "hip hop" club in downtown Charleston that these spots would make the list. It doesn't change the FACT that none of these places are actually hip hop clubs. These could be a best "club" category and there wouldn't be any out cry. The reason there is, is because many people in our community are working hard to promote the culture of hip hop and want to see it grow and have a true place in Charleston. These spots that have been mentioned thus far do not back what hip hop culture is about and it's frustrating to see a city publication give away a title that these people work to give meaning to. To clubs that have yet to lift a finger to see it thrive in the Holy City.
