Re: “We should welcome and encourage women to run for local office

As a proud member of the aforementioned groups, I am aware now, more than ever, of the importance of getting more women in these local seats of various governments. I am seriously considering making a run next year, because Charleston needs to be represented by the people who want to make a positive change, not a name for themselves.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

As an example to the non-calm nature of trumpsters, hate crimes in NYC are up 36% YTD 2016, but has sckyrocketed to 115% post-election and mostly anti-semitic hate crimes. Trump is really bringing out the worst in people because HE is the worst example of a role model to grace this earth because of the power of the President.

Re: “Being non-racist is not good enough

"You make a good point that being non-racist isn't good enough. But don't tell us clearly what we need to do beyond that."
Good Point.

One thing the whole community, black and white, can do is demand quality education and to hold parents and children accountable. The lack of investment in public education is the dirty ugly secret in our serene City By The Sea.
I work for a living and sweat paying my bills like so many. Please don't ask me to fix the black community.As a white person, I am not responsible for the "Corridor of Shame". Black people should create their own opportunity if they see it denied in corporate culture.Black men are over represented in the prison system because of a pervasive plantation mentality that has resulted in generations no longer dependent on ole maussa for food and housing. Instead, there are families living in public housing collecting food stamps as a way of life. Personally, I can't do a thing about 1 out of 2 black children born out of wedlock. I can't do a thing about the dominance of females in that sector of society, marginalizing the men. Children without father figures lack direction and land in jail. It would seem to be the place of the churches and social service organizations to lift up that culture of dependency.

Re: “Being non-racist is not good enough

"We are engaged in a superficial kind of unity"

I don't know if that's ever not been the case. Right under the surface of our famous "southern charm" is a deep passive aggressive sentiment rooted in fear and insecurity of The Other.

Re: “Being non-racist is not good enough

Two things...

You make a good point that being non-racist isn't good enough. But don't tell us clearly what we need to do beyond that.

It was apparently 1 juror who caused the mistrial. Other than seating an all black jury, how do you deal with that in the next trial?

Lord Lord Lord. I have forgiveness in my heart. There are still slaves in S.C.
This time stop praying so hard , get off your knees and get some black jurors.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

You read the next line and realized it was sarcasm, surely? Trump voters are not all out "joining hate groups" just like Clinton voters are not all out rioting and committing assaults or joining violent leftist movements. Some extreme outliers in each group seemingly are, though.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

"I don't judge either side by the outliers, nor would any intelligent person."

Er.....you just did. (See comment above beginning with "No, "the Trump-fearers" are just rioting")

But to say trumpsters are all behaving non-violently is not true. If HRC had won, you thing trumpsters would sit back and say all is well? Hell, they don't do it when they won:

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

People that voted for Trump are overwhelmingly calm and will remain calm and supportive of friends and neighbors, regardless of their political beliefs. Just like in 2008 and 2012 when most of those same people were on the losing side.

There are nutjob fringe elements on both sides. I don't judge either side by the outliers, nor would any intelligent person.

If civil liberties of American citizens are actually threatened, whether it's the 1st or 2nd Amendments or others, Trump supporters are on the correct side of the issue, I assure you.

Stricter immigration controls from nations associated with terrorists that have attacked US people and interests are not civil rights violations, and we must be honest that the majority of terrorist attacks in the world today are associated with Islam. There is no registry of American Muslims nor will there be. Muslims are not being rounded up, nor will they be. Your advice to stay calm is very timely.

Re: “A theory against hate

I see they had to take down one at least hate-filled, threatening comment already. Point proven. This 57 year old white woman will stand by all disenfranchised people. Hate cannot be allowed to reign.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

I was thinking about the differing responses in our community in Charleston, not the response in faraway cities. Thanks for reminding me, some anti-Trump protesters are indeed behaving violentlybut there's always a violent faction in every group. Not every conservative bombs abortion clinics.

But the main point is, we all need to calm down and reach out to each other, and be aware that civil liberties and institutions need to be defended, because a threat to one is a threat to all.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

No, "the Trump-fearers" are just rioting, burning shit, faking hate crimes and getting arrested for making false police reports, assaulting Trump supporters, blocking roads and other lunatic stuff that didn't happen after Obama got elected.

What? You don't like Trump and you didn't do any of that and I shouldn't generalize? Fascinating!

Hide behind your fake names and lack of profile pictures, Foghorn and Swamp Rabbit, and make your thinly veiled threats. We won't hide from the hatred you won't even claim with real names.
