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.
Just gonna go ahead and put this out there for the next person who thinks the author of this article is serious.....
She's not. :-)
Oh pleeeeeease tell me that there will be a dress code requiring we all have our ankles and wrists covered at all times!
Thanks Michelle. I thought the same thing. Make mine a bourbon, neat.
I am so proud of you two. Thank you for your love and generosity to Mother Earth and all of the water protectors. Go through life with love.
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.
i do hope the menu will have pictures, as my father and husband have never permitted me to learn to read.
Wow. Nothing about this sounds enticing.
Oh Michelle... bless your heart
Thanks Michelle! At first I thought she was being sarcastic!
If you call us the weaker sex, it gives others the permission to think we actually are. #feminism101 P.S. I like craft beer
Delicious chicken & biscuts. Best fried pickles I've found in Chs...a little out of the way, worth the trip.
Best fried pickles and chicken & biscuits I've ever had and I grew up in SC!
And how dare you shop on the penninsula, eat at any of the fine dining establishments around market street, east bay street, meeting street. all of which is on the backs of slaves. Get over it, move on, go hide in your safe place. You should be ashamed for even living here, how disgraceful.
Pay me now or pay me later. Built on a dump in the 1960's, even then rain would make it a bog. Not much was ever done to take care of it.
More leftist lunacy.
"You filmed a show in Washington DC? HOW DARE YOU?! Slave labor was used to build much of it and it was named after a DEMON SLAVE OWNER!!"
Any place that's had human habitation for a millennia or so, and many with less, had slavery present. Some still do. The first law in North America specifically legalizing slavery was, I believe, written in Massachusetts. Was Yankee slavery kind and gentle and ok? Why no histrionics over former slave sites in Brooklyn?
You read the next line and realized it was sarcasm, surely? Trump voters are not all out "joining hate groups" just like Clinton voters are not all out rioting and committing assaults or joining violent leftist movements. Some extreme outliers in each group seemingly are, though.
This story is what it is, that is Michael Slager became a bad cop, when he shot Walter Scott hitting him five times. It's obvious that one particular juror has a problem with that, being the case. In this case evidence against Slager isn't circumstantial, anyone that saw the video, saw that Scott was running from Slager not towards him.
All cops such as Slager take an oath to serve and protect. The day that Slager drew his weapon and fired eight times at Scott he wasn't at all living up to that oath.
Cops have to be held accountable for their actions, above all law abiding citizens. Slager has been charged, now he needs to be convicted.
What, you mean the rest of the US isn't full of monuments to slavers and plantation owners, so much a part of the social fabric that no one even gives it a second thought? Huh. The next thing you're going to tell me is that the bad guys didn't win the American Civil War!
Hey all, this is a fascinating thread...it's not about victimhood, any plantation needs to acknowledge who died to build it and many, not all, completely ignore it. Call enslaved people 'servants', as if they had any choice at all. US slavery was a terrible thing, check http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/inside-americas-auschwitz-180958647/
