Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

Bravo, Charleston City Paper. Please tell me the criteria for a venue to be considered a "Hip Hop Club." (Oh, and not only a Hip Hop Club, but THE BEST Hip Hop Club.) Downtown Charleston has ZERO Hip Hop clubs. It really intrigues me how a publication that has capitalized on Hip Hop artists, and covered Hip Hop based stories, would have the guts to create a category of something that does not exist. I am not concerned about the nomination process, I have questions about the category creation process. When these categories were created, did anyone stop and say "Oh wait, there is NO Hip Hop club in Downtown Charleston." "Oh wait, we wrote a WHOLE story about how Hip Hop event planners can BARELY find a venue that would open doors to play Hip Hop." I do expect more from the Charleston City Paper. When you know better, you do better. Charleston City Paper, you knew better. How The Commodore won this award is beyond me. No shade, just facts. The Commodore is NOT a Hip Hop club. If the winner and runner-up are indeed Hip Hop clubs, then I will be the first one through the door on Friday night, expecting the wondrous sounds of Future or Lil Boosie to greet me at the doe'! #BOC17 #BestReachOf2017 #StretchArmstrong

Re: “Best Musician

Would it be possible to put Mr. Rucker in the HOF and retire his number for the sake of these awards? Yeah, we get it... the guy that has been making platinum records since Slick Willie's first term is a good singer. Beautiful voice, everyone knows it... like everyone in the United States.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Talking Points

I just want to know why everyone acts like "the step-and-repeat," in noun form, is a super normal term we should all know. "Don't forget, tomorrow after your dentist appointment we have to swing by the post office to pick up that step-and-repeat I ordered." Yeah, totally normal term I use all the time. What kind of monster doesn't know what a "step-and-repeat" is?! For once, I'm with Craig. I will call it a "step and release" from here on out. And by that I mean NEVER, since I have made it 30-some years into life without ONCE needing to refer to that thing that they call a "step-and-repeat."

Re: “Best Exhibit of 2016

this is great that Patriots Point Vietnam Exhibit was voted best of 2016 but for "reporting" the Charleston City Paper gets a bad grade. The wasted page your website has as a result of clicking on the link for the Best Exhibit of 2016 is pretty empty. Sure its states who the winner is, but NO pictures? NO explanation? NO nothing? C'mon guys you gotta elaborate a little bit.

Re: “How integration led to the decline of black-owned businesses

It's integration (civil rights type) not all integration is bad. We must qualify. Blacks face a ton of routine and non routine problems. They cant say it's this and not that. You have to look at us from before "the free labor problem" to now, do the causal analysis. Integration is one of many problems. Integration caused the loss if Black Baseball, theater, taxis, buses, radio, positive publication, knowledge of self, community, dignity, accountability...Some of these will cross into the other.

You MUST creat a large index of problems. You must use the science of observation. One observation is bamboozle syndrome. Each of the so called black leaders past and present has been a complete fool. They have not used any dynamic principals to fix the black problem.
King equality, Garvey unity, WEB high education, Booker T. skills and land, Dr. Claude Anderson group economics. Dr. Clacke wasn't fair when dealing with history. Blacks leadership is clueless, they don't know the cure.

As I mention, blacks cant solve routine problems. They have no principals across a mass part of their population to accomplish anything in their best interest. This is what all leadership fail to realize. Blacks have no empathy, I call it self genecide. Example, civil rights cases cost 100k just to see a judge. Negros don't organize to raise money for all these police shootings to build a civil rights case, they don't know how to use it. Gays, Hispanics and other minorities might of had a case well funded with traction in the right direction. Instead,you get black folks marching again callin they self black lives matter SMH.

Lastly, what I laugh at is when black men wanna be the HNIC. He got all the answers every other black man is wrong. This is some kinda mental disease. There are 1.3 Trillion reason for the black problem, but one solution and the Souls of Black Folks don't want it so I'm not going there.

Re: “How integration led to the decline of black-owned businesses

It is not integration that is responsible for the breakdown of black America. Please read the legitimate stats of black America prior to the welfare state. The American Thinker posted a piece a few years back that included pre and post welfare stats. How well-meaning government programs decimated black America is shocking, from business ownership to two-parent families to education. Our politicians have enslaved the strong people it once freed, making them dependent on government while providing incentives to destroy the family unit (or simply not create it). Black enterprise, education and families pre 1960 (& post slavery) were flourishing. In an attempt to create equality (an attempt by misguided politicians), great harm was done. And it continues today. The poor black youth I have taught for 16 years are always shocked to see pictures of flourishing black businesses, towns, etc. They were born into the welfare state with family role models who were as well. It is unfortunate, but it will continue as long as the men and women we put into office embrace a victim mentality. One can acknowledge the ills and huge effects of slavery without creating legislation and programs that perpetuate the problems. But that is what we continue to do, enslaving generation after generation to lifelong poverty.

Re: “Can Burke High School unite Charleston?

I, too, am a graduate of the class of 1968. I recall many teachers with advanced degrees, and a fierce desire to help us succeed. Though we received substandard resources, these teacher challenged us and made sure that we received a first class education, academically and socially.
