One small correction - the van driver that killed Dr. Hollen on the JI connector did not "lose control of his van" - he was talking on his cellphone and distracted, and drifted off the driving surface into the emergency lane.
Dwayne....I'm sorry you have to read this nonsense. So much negativeness. My son, who is a neurologist & a white american lived in the Charleston area for 6 years and now lives out of state. He followed this tragedy online. When we spoke the weekend after, we spoke about the words of forgiveness from the black clergy just hours after, their repeal of so called "activists" and the human chain formed across the Ravenel Bridge, his words were "That's Charleston and that's why it's such a special place"
Looks like you forgot a few facts. Sterling and Castile both tried to go for their guns after the police officers told them to show their hands.
ALL TRUTHS MATTER!
not "offended" CID. i used the word "defensive"--as in the white guilt you apparently feel. i have no time for that. and no interest in your hurt feelings. you might go polish your gun or whatever it is you do when you feel threatened by the gays, blacks and women.
i'm asking what specifically has charleston (broadly defined--educational institutions, individuals, leaders, businesses) done in the wake of Emanuel that is worth emulating? the author begins with an assumption that charleston has responded positively. but what does that mean? what have been the specific actions that have been taken? by what measurement has it been positive?
i identified the following as a post-emanuel positive (though i suspect it is more a triumph of theatrics than substance):
but what else is out there?
