Re: “How is Charleston Strong?

"You're not supposed to give yourself a nickname," then the author proceeds to suggest we give ourselves a new catch phrase. I thought the "Charleston strong" thing was trite and contrived when it first appeared and has been mostly meaningless ever since.

Re: “How is Charleston Strong?

I think "Charleston Strong" was a rallying cry and word of encouragement during the emotional shell shock of the heinous act this young man committed. While we in the community can never begin to fathom the pain felt by those who lost loved ones, the community was grieving in an enormous way. "Charleston Strong" was a way to acknowledge that grief, to urge the community to hold onto the thought that there is still good in the world, and to channel that grief into positive action, for each of us to do what we can to be part of the healing.

Re: “How is Charleston Strong?

Why did the police buy Roof a burger? The reason is fairly simple and has nothing to do with being nice to this POS. It's the same reason suspects and prisoners in custody aren't beaten by honest law enforcement.

The police are not judges, prosecutors nor prison wardens. Their job is to enforce the law and if criminals are apprehended, to do nothing that would botched the case for the successful prosecution of the suspect. Police misconduct and mistreatment of prisoners in their care is one the primary reasons criminals have successfully walked on charges or had those charges significantly reduced. Think that's a reach in this case? Think again. Currently there are are multiple lawsuits, several having been successful, by the ACLU (and CAIR) regarding meals served to suspects / inmates being not Kosher, not Islamic, not properly prepared, prepared with the wrong ingredients (too much soy), etc., etc. with these actions being deemed as "cruel and unusual punishment" The fact is that if under the same circumstances, the police had a Muslim suspect in their care and they had refused to feed him the cries of police brutality based on religious intolerance and maltreatment of a prisoner in their custody would have been taken the focus off the actual crime.

If the police had been foolish enough to not feed this POS as is required by law, the possibility of a mistrial based on mistreatment of this POS would most certainly have been raised by his attorneys, and could have very well that changed the outcome of the sentencing if not the verdict. In which case, the hue and cry of articles and opinion pieces regarding the stupidity of the police to do something as simple as buying this POS a burger would be a weekly norm at the CCP.

Re: “Charleston named No. 1 U.S. city by Travel + Leisure, loses top spot in world

So 6,000 readers of a magazine vote in a poll of a country of 325+ million and this makes Charleston the #1 city in the country. Where is the disclamer in all these articles (according to the votes of 6,000 readers of Travel And Leisure Magazine) This designation is presented as fact when this is not even 1/1000 of 1% of the countries population voting in this poll. This is pretty laughable actually. The only real effect from this is more tourists, more congestion, and a quality of life for the locals that is starting to get so bad, it takes me 15 minutes to get 1 mile to the Harris Teeter on E Bay St. Yep, #1 city in the USA for sure as long as you dont have to live here.

Re: “David Lee Nelson makes stage four colon cancer look like a joke

David's brilliant, hilarious, and touching blog is helping me understand and cope with my sister's diagnosis with colon cancer. I hope he understands how sharing his experience is helping others -- through laughter, pathos, and catharsis.

Re: “Current and former administrators sue Charleston County School District, alleging widespread racial discrimination

Wow, thank you for this reporting. I will be watching this case closely. The disproportionate demotion of Black female educators is creepily reminiscent of the mass layoffs of Black teachers in the South during desegregation (Revisionist History, the podcast, just released an episode about this last week if folks are interested - http://revisionisthistory.com/episodes/13-…).

Black students benefit greatly in classrooms led by Black teachers. All students benefit when they encounter teachers from diverse backgrounds throughout their K12 education. Charleston County has a long way to go towards providing our students with what they really need to learn and grow - hopefully this lawsuit will spark some positive change.
