Re: “Friendliest City or Racial Backwater?

I've lived here less than three years, and I wish it was more integrated in terms of neighborhoods, but one thing I love seeing is how freely people of all races mix on the beaches here. It's a really friendly vibe and people seem really relaxed.

Re: “Charleston deserves the distinction of being Bicycling mag's "Worst City for Bicycling"

The BCD Council of Governments has contracted with ALTA + Design consultants to develop a regional ped/bike plan to address these connectivity and funding priorities.
Please complete the WALK BIKE BCD survey located at; we will be having public input meetings at the end of November and need your input. Thank you.

Re: “Friendliest City or Racial Backwater?

@Pc Coker: Roof was certainly from Columbia but to say that he doesn't serve as a beacon of the white, racist, Southern redneck is only acceptable if you are looking for a stronger word than "beacon." Roof is the kind of guy you would think was a caricature if he wasn't so real, he ticks so many pathetic boxes of the stereotype.

But he represents a small fraction of us, maybe 10%, in a non-silent minority. Our problems with race, from education to criminal justice to economic opportunity are much more subtle and yet too normalized and widespread to make headlines.
