Re: “CCSD Board's new superintendent hire raises questions

Racism goes both ways. I think everyone agrees that the best end result in regards to eliminating racism would be a system in which race is not a factor in a negative way and would be eliminated as a factor. That is race neutral. To ask the system to punitively swing back the other way is like asking a pendulum to swing one way and then stop in the middle. More effective is to simply stop the pendulum in the middle.

In regards to this race neutral utopia, a decision like this should be objectively based on qualifications alone. Race should not be an issue. The new school year i coming. To delay this decision would only result in more time crunch based crisis management at the CCSD in the end. We have all seen the same scenario in our own work places with bad managers who delay crucial decisions.

As for "secret meetings" don't be naive. Dr. Herring has met constantly with the school board as an employee. She also worked behind the scenes with Michael Miller during the "watermelon" incident and more importantly the "Twitter" incident where they attempted to ban a student from Prom and Graduation. DO your research. The "offended" student was her daughter and she used her influence to escalate the situation. Now there is a pending lawsuit which will cost the School District damages in the hundred of thousands.

In the end race should not have been an issue. It is a simple decision. "What candidate was best qualified to serve as an advocate for the children of the CCSD?" If we dropped the bullcrap and had all three resumes in a blind pile the answer was clear and this is why the hiring went as it did. Lets cut the crap and be real.

Re: “CCSD Board's new superintendent hire raises questions

The best candidate was selected based upon qualifications. Dr. Herring consistently had access to the CCSD Board as an employee. It isn't about race but what is best for the kids. To bring up race is simply....racist.

Re: “Disgruntled Yik Yak users are pissed at the Post and Courier for writing about them

What is funny is that the Paste & Copy (as the P&C stands for now) refused to even acknowledge the Charleston Thug Life tip of who the Chuckie Cheese Shooter was. When people posted the link Andy Paras'ite said that social meida was irresponsible and stated that it was a poor source. Guess he didn't heed his own advice. Funny enough the person the CTL post named was arrested and charged for the shooting 72 hours later. More proof Print copy is useless for daily news and is an outdated Business model.

Re: “The stories of 3 same-sex couples who tried applying for marriage licenses last week

I am as conservative in my Politics but in this case I say move on. If they want to formalize their relationships and commit to each other in a monogamous relationship let them.

Re: “Late Night law would force bar owners to create powerless police force, endanger lives

You are correct. Drunks are not the most reasonable people to speak with. You will either have bar security getting hurt or stepping over the line and hurting a drunk. Either way the Police will need to come anyway.
