Just the other night I picked up wonderful barbecue chicken with green beans and potato salad. Really terrific and good visuals as I waited at the bar. Very friendly service. Someone in the kitchen knows what's what.
not "offended" CID. i used the word "defensive"--as in the white guilt you apparently feel. i have no time for that. and no interest in your hurt feelings. you might go polish your gun or whatever it is you do when you feel threatened by the gays, blacks and women.
i'm asking what specifically has charleston (broadly defined--educational institutions, individuals, leaders, businesses) done in the wake of Emanuel that is worth emulating? the author begins with an assumption that charleston has responded positively. but what does that mean? what have been the specific actions that have been taken? by what measurement has it been positive?
i identified the following as a post-emanuel positive (though i suspect it is more a triumph of theatrics than substance):
but what else is out there?
sorry you feel defensive cid. but i'm really asking questions. what are we asking others to emulate? how will charleston "lead by example--once again"?
I may not be aware of all of the "positive steps forward" that were taken after Emanuel. Please enlighten. A few institutions with deep historical ties to the white supremacy (Coastal Community Foundation, Boeing, MUSC) imported some high profile black people. But beyond that?
why would they take the name of another Peninsula eatery?
there's also been a huge surge in white collar crime in wagener terrace and other parts of the peninsula. i hope charleston police crack down. we are not safe.
