Re: “It's time to bring back slavery

Brilliant analogy, now I get it, it should never end. Now maybe you can help me understand how the millions of offspring of 20th century Caucasian immigrants, people who have no connection to the United States prior to 1900 share equal blame for the slavery that started all of this.
Oh, never mind, I forgot that you studied at the knee of Will Moredock. I'm White, therefore I'm guilty.

Re: “The Agenda: Volvo to Berkeley County; Development fights bring zoning intrigue; Hollywood home invasion details

"I'm just skeptical of this type of debt loading with respect to our ailing public services and infrastructure that are continuously ignored."

This is the way of things when you live within the confines of a shining beacon of stale conservative policy.

Tax revenues are for bribing industry, not for the betterment of our society.

As for our infrastructure? It will continue to crumble as we adhere to lowest-bidder insanity.

And so we're back to a question I asked after the column "“The Agenda: State may pony up for Volvo; S.C. DMV changes appearance policy after settlement; Boeing CEO on worker organizing: "We will work with them" 3 weeks ago

Re: “I support the Cooper River 4

Nicetry, Haire, but you're trying a little too hard.
Lee, just read the definition, then choose any 25 of your 160 comments, and if you still don't understand my point you're proving it.

'I don't dispute that cops can be racist. But this author is accusing cops of committing racist MURDERS against unarmed blacks across the country.'

You cant be serious. Can you?

One was literally the biggest story in the USA, was recorded and happened in this metro area.

You are either in denial, or are dumber than a handful of mule shit.

Prong,

So that lunch date at Huddle House ™ is probably a no-go then.

Indeed. My right to freedom from religion is constantly under attack by the Republican government.

Re: “A month after Walter Scott's shooting, activists still calling for civilian police oversight

The civilian revue board would of course include all races and sexes; and would address police abuse against any citizen.
I really don't see how this is a racial matter, except for that it took an unarmed black man getting shot in the back to bring it about.
What if it was a white guy behind on his child support payments who inadvisably decided to flee to avoid more jail time; and got shot in the back for it? Is that somehow different?

Re: “I support the Cooper River 4

I don't dispute that cops can be racist. But this author is accusing cops of committing racist MURDERS against unarmed blacks across the country. If this is a factual statement, the author should identify those cops who have recently committed "racist murders." My point is she cannot do that without subjecting this paper to a libel charge and she knows that, so she hides behind a provocative -and socially sanctioned- generality.

Re: “I support the Cooper River 4

"So at what point, how many years, how many generations, does it take to move on? Or is this an excuse for permanent victimhood?"

Rednecks are still passing on the fear-addled frontier mentality that they to carry a gun to walk to their mailbox or go to the store. So I don't see why African Americans passing on their tales of capture, abuse and neglect would fade away any quicker.

Re: “The Agenda: MUSC announces $25M gift; House unanimously passes body camera bill; Jasper plan deferred

"The measure exempts data recorded by the cameras from state public records laws, providing exceptions for internal investigations and legal proceedings. Source: P&C, Reuters, Aiken Standard"

So lawmakers - who are elected by the public - are saying that the public does not deserve the right to know the actions of police officers who are paid with - get this - money from that same public. Sounds about right.

Re: “I support the Cooper River 4

Ima,

"So at what point, how many years, how many generations, does it take to move on? Or is this an excuse for permanent victimhood?"

Good question. Fortunately, I have figured out a way to get a scientifically proven answer to your question: We'll round up a demographically diverse group of test subjects, strip them of their freedom, separate them from their families, forbid them to read or write, make them work in the fields from morning to night, lash them when they get out of line, etc. Of course, we'll keep this going for a couple hundred years before entering the second phase of the experiment, the part where the test subjects technically have their freedom but society itself will largely prevent them from fully exercising their rights through Jim Crow-esque laws and periodic lynchings from terrorist groups.

Knowing you, I'm sure you'll be the first volunteer.

Re: “The Agenda: Volvo to Berkeley County; Development fights bring zoning intrigue; Hollywood home invasion details

A 28-year ROI, I will admit, isn't terrible on income taxes alone. It is less than a standard mortgage. I wonder what kind of rate the state got or will get on the bond issue, though? If they issue at 5% (which is what the last municipal bond I shopped was returning) the $150M will end up being $290M. That stretches things out a bit I'd say.

I'm just skeptical of this type of debt loading with respect to our ailing public services and infrastructure that are continuously ignored.

Lee, 2 anecdotes only because I didn't want to be accused of piling on.

And by the way, sir, looking at the overall bulk of your comments, you qualify as Racist.
