OMG! I *desperately* need to see this!!!
"Words without actions are just that, words."
"I thought we were supposed to have dialogues about race"
Get back on your meds, Sybil. You're arguing with yourself.
As the governor said, the problem is that school funding is by local property tax. To provide equal protection to all the state's children, funding should be provided at the state level where all children are guaranteed equal protection.
So I can't have a conversation about race?? Especially on race related columns??I thought we were supposed to have dialogues about race, now you tell me we aren't? ? Perhaps you would like a dialog as long as everyone agreed, which would accomplish nothing . Not everyone is going to agree with you so just get over it. I also wrote about hillary Clinton and Snowden and 21 million federal government employees hacked, did you see those with your myopic vision?? And in none of the race comments did i disparage any race. But your constant name calling invalidates any argument uou may have. As for your lack of helping blacks beside bitching on CCP you weren't able to answer any of my questions. You and landsnark are getting too weird, so bless your heart and have a nice life.
@showmoor, you really are a fucking idiot. I clicked on your name and scrolled through about 40 or so of the over 100 posts you've made on this site. Every damn post is on a race related article. You are a troll. And a fucking stupid one at that.
"You admitted that you do nothing else to curb racism"
You dreamed that, dipshit, because it never happened. My house is in order.
Landsnark, you are still having a problem with comprehension.I stated I was for taking the flag down. When I speak of doing nothing I am talking about posting on here while doing nothing else about the race problem. But let me ask, what did YOU do to help bring the flag down, besides post on here? Did you March on Columbia? Did you call your representative? As for the rest of your post about me being in the military, I have no idea who you think I am. I have never been a part of the military industrial complex. Also, I don't eat fast food. It kills.
You're right, Show Less. When as a whole community we condemn white supremacists into the embarrassed minority, we're doing nothing for race relations. You're right. There is NOTHING that can be done to help race relations in the American South. So to do anything is a total, absolute failure. If you do 1 thing, it has to fix it entirely, and if it doesn't, it's an absolute failure.
And also, doing anything to help your fellow South Carolinians and Americans who are black feel better, is simply PC bullshit, right? Cuz fuck them, right? Fuck them and their grandparents and their grandchildren and their lives. Right? Cuz it's all about you. You fix Jeeps in the military and the only thing that matters in the world is your uneducated opinion on things you don't nearly understand.
But, you've spent 15 years in government pay, so we have to listen to your embarrassing rhetoric. I have an idea. Get a job. Do SOMETHING that improves all our lives other than hate most of America while most of America pays for you to eat fast food.
Wow, what a revelation!!! Comments about race on a race related comment section!! I haven't disparaged any group on here like you have, so I'm not sure what you are talking about hypocrisy, just because you think you are curbing racism by posting on a section where 90% of the people agree with you. You admitted that you do nothing else to curb racism, so look in the mirror young man. I didn't generalize about a group of people like you did, but if I had said that all gays were pedophiles or some other such nonsense you would have been all over it. Btw, you are just now reading my posts when you commented on each one already?? Now I understand your replies better. And, yes, you post about racism but you do nothing else, so your words are just that, words.
Ok, this is over, let's get back to increasing the minimum wages please. This was on the table longer and is greatly needed in the South. Talking about keeping a person down, this is the way for prices of products and services increase while the average person wages remain low just enough to survive or drown in the lake of increasing bills.
True enough, Brewengineer. I'm from Fredericksburg and have family from VMI who were officers in the Confederate Army, so I'm familiar with the Civil War. But it just doesn't own the mindshare up there that it does here. I attribute it to South Carolina's collective low self esteem and current state of got-nothing-else-going-on-edness.
Remember on Monument Avenue there is also a giant memorial to Arthur Ashe. And anyway I have no problem with memorials and commemorations. The Civil War DID happen. But having it be the most important factor in your description of self today, and to have it be sanctioned by your current government, is beyond the pale. Why intentionally alienate most Americans?
@Showmoor: I just scrolled through your comments. Every single comment is related to race.
"Words without actions are just that, words" ??
I don't "feel sorry" for you. I pity you. You are a pathetic hypocrite. And a troll. Crawl back under the bridge.
Of course he is. Anyone think this project was just a co-wink-a-dink?
Thank you SC legislators for removing that symbol of oppression and slavery and moving it to a museum where it belongs. Slavery will not return and the south will not rise again, except when it joins the rest of America in respecting the rights and sensibilities of all of its citizens.
Don't feel sorry for me. It was my pleasure to enlighten you on how little you are doing for race relations in this country. Words without actions are just that, words.
I am very Proud of Cherokee County, both of our Representatives from the House and Senator Peeler voted to leave the Flag where it was! That is what the majority of the County wanted! Great job!
It's either "give me a break" or "cut me some slack".
Scott Parker is John Darby(Beach Co./Sgt Jasper developer)'s brother in law. Just a little full disclosure for ya.
Sorry if my English isn't up to par ImFromHere, please keep in mind that its actually a second language for me after Spanish and after French. I have a feeling your Spanish and French may be cruellement défaut so cut me a break. Actually, both my Spanish and French are also not perfect after living in Charleston and New York for so many years either (or so everyone here in San Sebastian keeps telling me) so I speak pretty shitty in 5 languages now. I do love me sum good language skillz.
Ima - will definitely check out Taco Bus next time as well as Burns. I love me some fine Bordello decor.
Well lets face facts...noone including a politician can please everyone. So its only fair that in certain situations, the politician goes with their heart. I applaud the politicians that voted to bring the flag down. & too the naysayers or flag supporters, so what?, Grow up, sometimes you lose some, In a democracy, you can't win them all. If you wanted a general election of popular votes, they should have made that the stipulation to bring if down back in 2000. They chose a legislative super majority. Well 15 years later it has backfired. I guess they couldn't foresee a terrorist using the flag as his symbol of hate & killing 9 innocent parishioners. Blame him not the politicians or the folks that wanted the flag down.
