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.

Re: “The New Yorker visits Piggie Park in its feature 'America's Most Political Food'

More reasons being a vegetarian keeps the conscience as well as the body clean lol. Never been and never will. According to yelp, the racist past doesn't hurt the chain a bit. In fact, the publicity surrounding the racism probably brings out all the trump supporters and confederate flag fliers on top of the simple lovers of BBQ... that covers nearly all of SC. Yeah, they ain't hurtin.

Re: “The New Yorker visits Piggie Park in its feature 'America's Most Political Food'

Being raised in NYC during the 60's and watching on TV what was going on in the South, us Yankees just could not understand the horrible things being done to black people. At the time, my parents called them "negro's". Did that make them racists? I don't thinks so. NYC bused black children to our all Jewish white Junior High schools in the mid 60's and unfortunately it did not work. I went to a sleep away camp with white and black girls. A YWCA camp. No problem. We did not see color. I hv experienced anti-semitism, but I just brush it off. I know I did not get jobs because I was Jewish. Big deal.

But, to blame this son's father? Come on. My dad was in Auschwitz and Dachau. Am I to blame the grandchildren of the SS Officers of the camps????

I think this racism has really gotten out of hand. We live in different times now. Bessingers has amazing BBQ. Are we really going to punish the son? Ridiculous.

Re: “Go for the hummus at Istanbul Shish Kabobs

I wholeheartedly disagree with the review of this place. I've been a few times and love the place. They don't advertise to be, nor do they pretend to be an upscale restaurant. Given the location, no one would be led to believe this. It's a great comfortable diner type feel. The food is fantastic. Great seasoning. I've never thought my food was dry or bland. I will agree about the review of the french fries, sadly that is correct, but otherwise, completely disagree. I strongly suggest giving this place a try, you won't be disappointed.

The American Flag Is the Real Slave Flag

Item# ISBN: 978-0-8059-9990-7
$11.00

by Stanley K. Lott

In The American Flag Is the Real Slave Flag, independent writer and researcher Stanley K. Lott proves that slavery was well protected by the U.S. Constitution, the federal government, the Supreme Court, American Flag, and International Law. He concludes that the Civil War was not a war to abolish slavery, but a conflict over high taxes and states rights. He does not seek to defame or embarrass the American government, but to tell the truth about American slavery.

While this book may shock some, the author advises everyone to control their feelings and obey the laws of the United States faithfully.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Stanley K. Lott, a black American from the South, has spent five years reading about the Civil War and slavery. This book is the result of that research. Mr. Lott invites the reader to check his references. CTM *Note He was a Bible Believing Christian- Check Stanley K Lott and his books! Stanley was a black man, who worked for Mr. Bessinger. Black Thugs ran Stan off the roads twice in an attempt to hurt or kill him because of what he had to say about his boss and our country. After that he wrote his books about the true racism in this country.
