Agree 100%. Great article.
Great article and 100% on point. Thank you for raising this issue! Sometimes it takes the viewpoint of someone newer to the area to highlight what long-time residents have become accustomed to. We can do better as a city and things definitely need to change.
Having grown up in Park Forest, Illinois (suburb 50 miles south of Chicago) during the 70's-80's I can honestly say that my little town over forty years ago was much more progressive than Charleston is now. Currently, I live in Columbia, South Carolina, which is much more inclusive and diverse due to the University of South Carolina's many other transplants. Time to move forward Charleston & talk, no, shout out just how important cultural diversity is by loving and including all from conversations to social events.
Visit North Charleston! Check out Remount rd, so much diversity it'll blow your mind. Also check out America St. I'm sure the people there would love to meet you.
I've been a DJ in Chas for a decade now...I can't even count on my hands how many times I've lost gigs because I attract too many black people. One owner of a market st venue actually counts the number of black people that enter.
I have also had white friends at "black" clubs that get verbally harrassed simply for attending.There really is a noticeable diversity and self segregation problem here.
The new location is great. Having an outdoor patio to go to out to is great for our running group that meets up there. All the other reviews are out dated and should be removed since they are about it's previous location.
Trump Brags About Using “Other People’s Money” Amidst Reports Of Illegal Charity Spending [VIDEO] https://youtu.be/WCpZyVtiz0s
September 21, 2016 2016 Election, Scandal, Teabagistan
Donald Trump bragged Tuesday there’s “nothing like” using other people’s money, hours after a report said he used more than $250,000 from his charitable organization to litigate lawsuits against his business interests. Trump, while calling for building safe zones in Syria financed by Gulf states, vaunted the benefits of doing business with “OPM.”
“It’s called OPM. I do it all the time in business. It’s called other people’s money,” Trump said. “There’s nothing like doing things with other people’s money because it takes the risk — you get a good chunk out of it and it takes the risk.”
His comments came on the heels of a Washington Post report published earlier Tuesday, which called attention to Trump’s funneling of contributions from the Donald J. Trump Foundation to charities in order to settle lawsuits against Trump. Trump has only sparsely contributed to his foundation. Instead, the foundation is largely funded by outside donors — not Trump himself.
Neither show is sold out. Both shows are pulling Orchestra Row Q for single tickets right now.
Courtney, sadly Lona Ann passed away a few years back. Atom Taler is working Ripley's Believe it or Not in Florida.
I don't know why diet has to be an all-or-nothing proposition. If you're concerned about meat consumption, just eat less meat. We could all stand to eat more vegetables and smaller portions in general, even as people that love bacon and burgers and wings and tenderloins and BBQ. Lower the demand for cheap meat, animal welfare should improve as the cut-rate producers lose volume that keeps them in business.
if everyone was a vegan we wouldn't needs pigs,cows,chickens.what a dull world it would be!! plus what about the Guilt of the extinction of another species? OH WHAT A DILEMNIA!!!
It's really not that hard to go vegan. If the author is not, she should consider it. Heck, you can start vegetarian or make small steps. If you can't stomach the idea that animals had to die for you to eat them, you shouldn't be eating them. I have been a vegan for over 2 years, Veg for over 4. When I started, I was surprised how easy it was to replace meat with beans or veggies in my usual dishes, and it still tasted great.
I would imagine that it will be illegal to sell wine to both dogs and mice and that the presence of either could be generally disruptive.
I'm a vendor who visits these grocery chains weekly. The reason why there is 23 isles of cereal, is because mount pleasant residents buy a lot of cereal & a bunch more of food products. None of these corporations would keep stores open if they all weren't making money. The Harris Teeter near Target is the only grocery store in Mt P with a low volume of customers. I believe that location is on a watch list.
Several of the managers at Bilo on Meeting were getting frustrated with the amount of pilferage in their store. Even with a security officer on site, helping the staff bag groceries. it continued. Though, I don't believe that's the reason they closed. Downtown real estate is gold & I think the landlord is expecting to make more revenue with a different tenant. Be it, residential or tourism related
My grandmother & grandfather, immigrants from Italy & now long gone, were displaced my eminent domain, when the state of Ct bought their 2 family home to build I-91 in the early 50's. Like everyone in that neighborhood, they pulled up stakes, moved & pushed on.
This author can paint any picture she wishes, but there is no planned disparity going on. It's just the way our world works. and it's happening for a very long time.
PS Mr. Oldman - Whole Foods, Trader Joe's & Aldi are all sister stores and owned by a European family business.
So the takeaway is that you want to stop contributing to animal suffering but you feel like you can't because you've been conditioned to enjoy the taste? What does this add to public discourse? Animals are sentient beings who deserve not to be raised for slaughter. Your taste buds are an irrelevant aspect of the equation.
