McMaster as Governor and Bryant as Lt. Gov. Looks like we are in for a ride . Back to the 1950's.

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.

"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: “With so many eyes on the street, justice today might rely only on a video

I wonder what the verdict would have been if the length of the video and actions depicted in the video were the same, but Slager and Scott had their roles reversed.

"With so many eyes on the street, justice today might rely only on a video "

and injustice may also be caused by a video. People are so used to being spoon fed their information now that few think on their own. They see a video or photo that appears to show one thing and refuse to accept that something else is occurring, already having formed their opinion based on what they think they see, or what others have told them they believe.

Re: “Big news, gals — Charleston is getting its first "Ladies Bar"

If all are welcome, what makes it a women's bar except the color. Seems a demeaning come-on.

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?

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

It wasn't so much the choice of the place that I found off-putting, I can understand wanting to bring in some historical context, and I can even trust Tom C that they're going to deal with the whole issue over time. The moment that struck me negatively was when Padma referred to the location as a place where "people worked and toiled in times past" as if it was just a job that they happened to take. It felt a bit tone-deaf to the location.

Re: “Big news, gals — Charleston is getting its first "Ladies Bar"

Well, that is something for someone to dump a bunch of money into that they don't need any more. However, I'm the last person to know what works in F&B and certainly the moneyed, female debutante barfly set.
