Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

Being a traveling musician, I know a black club owner who invites country music to his restaurant and nightclub to run black people out of his club. He said, he doesn't make any money off black people. In his own words he said, "they don't but drinks and make lemonade at the table with free lemons and sugar and don't tip his staff. He said they also smuggle in their own booze. I don't know how common this is, but I have no reason to believe the guy is lying. He said he tried to have a black club and security and economic reasons put him out of business. If any of that is true, I could see many club owners doing the same thing. I'm not saying what he did was right, but going out of business and being bankrupt because of unruly and cheating customers isn't right either.

White Supremacist Richard Spencer Tells BBC: Donald Trump’s Arrow Is Pointing In Our Direction [VIDEO] https://youtu.be/1TIodunutPQ
September 22, 2016 2016 Election, Extremists, Racism

Mediaite reports:

In a BBC report that aired Thursday, a white nationalist leader named Richard Spencer explained that Donald Trump is following in the footsteps of what the white nationalist movement has been doing for years. “Donald Trump came along and I feel like my movement and ideology, we can be a kind of vanguard for a presidential candidate,” Spencer said. “His arrow is pointing in our direction.” Spencer is the president of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank founded in 2005 and based in Virginia, and “a radical white separatist whose goal is the establishment of a white ethno-state in North America,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. He resides in Whitefish, Montana, where the interview took place.

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

My family is one of the very few black families that still owns several homes in downtown Charleston. Gentrification has truly taken its toll on the neighborhoods on the peninsula that were once mostly African American. As a black professional, I had to move to Columbia to provide my family with the diversity that was lacking in my hometown and also an affordable home in a good neighborhood. As the home prices and property taxes continue to rise, the population of downtown will continue to become less and less diverse. When I visit, I ask the same question...where are the black people? On a recent visit my son was walking our dog near our family home on Charlotte street, and this was so unusual that a "neighbor" rushed inside, locked her doors and turned on all of her porch lights as if in fear. The city was built on our backs and now has forced us out and driven up housing prices unrealistically. Personally, I think it is too far gone to ever be repaired. Unless you choose to live in North Charleston, Summerville, etc., you will not see much diversity now and definitely not in the near future.

Re: “Charleston County Council calls for further study of West Ashley bike lane

http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/TheBatt…

The reason there was no real bottleneck effect where the lane was removed is because actual drivers “appeared to be less aggressive when congestion occurred in the merge area” compared to their computer counterparts. So people were getting in the right lane way ahead of the lane removal and therefore sitting in a ridiculously long line to get to and across the bridge.

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

I moved here from NY 4 years ago. I have never seen so many people who do not make eye contact and say hello when passing on the sidewalks. I feel a division and a sadness here. Charleston is a beautiful city still suffering from the past, and rightly so. My heart breaks for the injustices that have happened in the past and continue today. I am still adjusting to the changes of the move from NY. I pray for equality and unity.

I've lived in Charleston, SC for ten (10) years and I'm still looking for and wondering where the black people are... Please let me know when and if you find them. It is extremely hard to find black professionals in this area.

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

It would be lovely if we could just think of ourselves as people, rather than "black" people or "white" people. Maybe then we can steer away from this "us and them" mentality that plays a huge part in keeping racism alive.

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

Just hang out with who you wanna hang out with. Diversity for the sake of diversity is stupid, and puts too mu h of an emphasis on skin color for no reason. If you meet somebody, and they seem cool, and you actually feel like having another friend, then hang out with them because of who they are, rather than what they look like. Jesus.

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

It's a sad truth, but the diversity here is a real problem. The stares and rejection you get while trying to have a good time in Downtown Charleston is a big deterrent for Blacks. I'm sure going to a more urban atmosphere could present some of the same challenges for White patrons as well.

If you hate the gays, muslims, women, immigrants and the USA, VOTE TRUMP! Trumps patriotism extends only to his wallet and anyone who thinks trump is for them, is delusional. Trump is for trump and NO ONE else!

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

We moved here almost 2 yrs ago and deal with the same thing. We are usually 1 of the only or 1 of a few black families around. I would love to see more black people outside of NC. The first thing I asked when I moved here was "Where are the middle class black people"?

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

I'm a native charlestonian now living in Columbia. The Charleston today is not the Charleston of my youth. When I come home and visit familiar neighborhoods and drive around the peninsula, I myself wonder where the black people are....what happened to the neighborhood....what happened to community gathering spots?
Gentrification is almost complete! Families have lost homes due to inability to pay taxes or they have succumbed to pressures to sell ancestral homes.When I read articles about Charleston rarely do I see people of color a and minority owned businesses.
By the way, in addition to the socio-economic differences, there is also a distinction between old money and new money. Thus we have a tale of two charlestons.
