Re: “Charleston: The No. 1 city in the world for white people

Re: “Charleston: The No. 1 city in the world for white people

Charleston is unaccustomed to and hates black people who defy stereotypes and know their rights as human beings. Charleston government, retailers, and grocery store managers use law enforcement to regulate segregation not enforce law. If black people in Charleston were to dine out, play tennis, surf at the beaches, go to the theaters and art gallerieses, shop at upscale organic grocers, and own and operate local events and newspapers such CCP, then Charleston would find a way to (and already does find ways to) segregate black people from those so called "white Charleston activities". Black people in Charleston weave sweet grass baskets because that is what Charleston segregates them to do. Charleston mandates that black people stay in their place as a silent beholden underclass. A commenter on this thread wrote "I grew up in West Ashley where blacks and whites lived side by side and went to school together. I remember as a child I didn't have enough money to buy something and a white man paid the difference. I've met many kind,caring and friendly white people". Well, segregation in schools is in fact illegal, a person can be racist and still give spare change to a needy black child, and it is humane, not remarkable, for human beings no matter what color they are to be kind and friendly people.

Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

I believe you believe it is humorous to troll articles written about you.

It is.

Although not a fan, I am a dedicated listener.

You are coy. Waiting for the screenplay. Blessings on your hoary head and your hairy Neanderthal knuckles that would buckle in blue were it not OK for you. So, do as you do, and partner your share, donned in your 74 hair, Meester Blue.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

Kinsey - please get ticket info and do a write-up on Taste of Black Charleston at the Aquarium. I'm going for sure. Caquisha - when do tickets go on sale? Will Chevalo & Monique be there?

Re: “Confederate flag defender Chris Corley, facing domestic violence and gun charges, called for leaders with morals

Of course I condemn violent criminal behavior like this, any normal person would. It's not a left / right thing.

"But only one political party consistently makes an effort to be hypocritical in telling other people how to live their lives while engaging in the behaviors they publicly claim to abhor."

I'm not as hung up on this party thing as you are. I see low-quality people of all political persuasions doing what you described. We've got plenty around.

Re: “Colicchio addresses Top Chef: Charleston's controversial Boone Hall plantation episode on Esquire

Boone Hall is perfect for a "Reality TV Show", considering the house was built in 1936 by a Canadian owner who wanted a "more Gone with the Wind" style house than the one standing at the time he bought it.

Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

Garrison I've been a fan since first hearing A Prairie Home Companion on WRPI in the mid 70s. Loved the humor, the music and the politics. What happened? Retirement turn you into a Republican? When the House sells out for a $110,000 take, what's your share? Call me an idealist, but you disappoint me.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Charleston Society And Others.
...this is entertaining for those who follow Reality TV things and enjoy
the cliquish social cults of Southerners and those who afflict them.
13 years is a long time to hold a grudge by a large group of people.
He may be so slighted, Thomas Ravenel may have a class-action suit.
Talk about discrimination in the White Social Classes and here is your
proof! The whole thing is badly handled with public rants and press
coverage. In the good old day of Civilized Charleston one just smiled
and ''carried on'' with good manners or just shot them at the Yacht Club.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Sometimes boorish behavior and bad manners for many years gets a comeuppance. Nobody likes a nasty drunk - especially the bartenders. J Chris has provided us with a great map that should be posted at the Visitors center. Mr. Nelson is a gentleman, Mr. Ravenel never was.
