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.
Yes yes yes ......lets talk!
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.
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.
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.
Hippo Birdie, Two Ewes!
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!
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"?
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.
that makes absolutely no sense..... you knew they were holier than themselves?
Happy Birthday, Bill Murray!!
Dukes still operates out of North Charleston, has for 6 decades. The one on JI barely holds a candle to the one on Spruill when it comes to the original texture and taste. 6 items on the menu: Meat, Hash & Rice, Coleslaw, Pickles, Sunbeam Bread, and Sweet Iced Tea. Open Fri-Sat 3-8. Now that's real Southern BBQ.
Happy Birthday, you geeeeenius! Your death therapy cured me, you geeeeenius! I heart you, ya meatball! I'd explain how much, but it'd get lost in translation.🤓
Charleston is not going to change. It is what it is.
Happy Birthday. You are my Dr. Leo Marvin.
I'm neither white or black, but I would agree that Charleston is self-seregrated because of economic reason rather than socially racial divided. Charleston downtown are full of tourists (which are mostly whites ... from elsewhere - Charleston is top travel destination. Whites still have the lead on traveling all around the world followed by the Chinese). Plus, Charleston is used to be a golden city of the south in which "old money" is here ... Most houses in downtown is owned by the white elites. College of Charleston is a rich-kid college and dominantly attended by whites in which their major are mostly social science, english, history and art ... ones that do-not-need-to-make-money majors.
It will change soon giving that high-paying jobs are here such as Boeing followed by Mercedes and now Volvo.
5 years ago when I moved here, I was typical the only Asian when going to Costco and you rarely see Blacks shop at Costco. It's now multi-color there :-) ... and will get better ...
Wish for a real Pho restaurant in town. Trust me, none of them are real authentic right now in Charleston as of 09/2016.
Welcome to Charleston!
In 1998 it was fashionable for a Grown Adult to claim that they have a Fear of Clowns now it's just Pathetic & Tired.
99.9% who claim they have Clown o Phobia have Munchausen syndrome. Everyone that reads this can do a favor by exposing this nonsense & don't buy into it. Keep in mind people who have pseudo clown phobia AKA: Munchausen syndrome may be hard to reach because ego is connected into this False persona. They want attention thru acting scared of Children's Entertainers because it's a "Funny Quirk" but it isn't. There's also some Adults who don't like Clowns because they fear being made a fool of & embarrassed. Folks, Comedians are Clowns without makeup! Real Clown o phobia is extremely rare but those who have don't tell the World & They Seek Professional Help.
