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: “The Agenda: Kimpson plans gun reform push again; Loftis broke ethics law; Dam laws

" Hillary Clinton doubled Donald Trump's October fundraising haul, bringing in dollars for a late campaign push as tens of millions appear to be flowing past Donald Trump and to down-ballot races in an effort to protect GOP House and Senate candidates."

HAUL is a good choice of words,since it appears, the FBI is going to reopen the

Everyone knows she is a crook and most of you liberals were willing to just hold your nose and vote for her.

No mention of the college-drug ring reported by Post and Courier in June on the surprising amount of guns found in the possession of other notable privileged caucasian males. That's a wicked way to make a statement, supply the drug-dealers with guns, supply them with their DRUGS, and then make them look like the bad-guys right? Oh, then cycle all the money back into slush-funds and salary-bonus's this 'State' (South Carolina) is in a 'State' of disrepair. We need some monitoring from the federal government here before things get out of hand, wouldn't you all agree?

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.
