Re: “On election day, vote 'Yes' on affordable housing

This is a huge tax increase on the backs of lower and middle class working people, which will be pocketed by our political hacks cherry picked developers who in turn contribute to the politcal hacks. A few cheap apartments get built, they move people in who don't work dont even live in Charleston now, nor do anything. In 10 years the apartments are trashed and they come back to steal more money from you. Don't fall for it. This is a tax increase on working families to pay for non working people's apartments

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Randall, the culture and the frequent lack of a two parent family is due to the fact that many in those racial communities live in poverty. That is why more needs to be done to spend on education for those races, than for us whites and Asians. So with more education, they should catch up with us in income, culture, and in having two parent families.

Re: “On election day, vote 'Yes' on affordable housing

Does anyone else think it's a bad idea to let government raise bond money to build housing? And if they do, would you want the City of Charleston as a landlord?

Re: “Gov. candidate Catherine Templeton calls Steve Bannon "the voice of the rest of us" ahead of his Citadel speaking gig

Obviously, you are as racist as Bannon, & would do nothing but promote divisiveness in our state & our country. Would not vote for you if you were the last person on earth!

Re: “What's it like to attend a virtual cooking class?

I definitely thought it was worth it! I spent less than I would have if I had gone out for dinner and I had leftovers for the next day too. Plus I didn't have to worry about ubering home after drinking. Looking forward to the next one!

Re: “Student in Freddie Gray Halloween costume faces heat from CofC's Black Student Union

What the f*ck is wrong with you dumbsh*t kids? Information is at your literal fingertips all day long to clue yourself in. Freddie Gray was killed, even if you look at it as a careless accident, after an arrest for nothing. He has a family. He has friends. He is a symbol of injustice and open wounds in our society.

But I guess the need to be "edgy" and "stick it to the libs and whiny minorities" is overwhelming to some of our most oppressed Americans, my fellow white males who come from money. Go play in traffic while jamming out to Rush Limbaugh.

Re: “The Agenda: S.C. corruption law lacks teeth; Ex-N. Chs. officer settles suit over Confederate flag underwear

Was the police officer wrongfully terminated because he was peeing into his Confederate underwear? Then he indeed should not have been terminated, he should have been praised for soiling that Nazi-like Confederate flag.

One more reason not to vote for Templeton in the primary. Vote for anyone else.

Dale, why have a White Student Union, when whites are a majority in that college? They don't need such a union.

What an incredible, boring, stupid article. Obviously this guy has some serious issues that need working out. How about taking off from your philosophy classes and get a life?

Well, you better look out for complete crying and name bashing from the Black Student Union? How do the folks in the White Student Union feel about this? Oh, I forgot, that would be racist to have a separate white one. Never mind.

Re: “How to not be basic in Charleston

Hey Joseph Coker, I'm very surprised that you chose to engage Michael Vaughn. Really, you played right into his superior, self-important, hands; nevertheless, that isn't my reason for commenting. I'm actually commenting to say that Michael Stoner Morgan really summed it up with his statement that things are virtually the same everywhere. I am a Charleston native now residing in Northern California. In fact, I've been here so long now (27 yrs) that some might say I'm a California native (never!). Growing up Charleston, I always thought that California was populated mostly by surfers, blondes, and movie stars and that everyone had a swimming pool in their backyard. It wasn't until I moved here that I realized my narrow view of California was more indicative of LA. The rest of California was more like the rest of the US and South Carolina. Although there was no drawl, pineapple door knockers, sea grass baskets, she-crab soup, Spoleto, or manners, the NorCal population could have easily been scooped up from the Lowcountry and plopped right down in Davis, Napa, Walnut Creek, or Vacaville. I've also lived in Fla, Ga, Ma, In, Tn, Ky, NJ, and visited a dozen or more US states, so I can attest, with great confidence, that people are just as basic, or not, everywhere you go. Basic is an American epidemic, or a cultural identity, depending on who you ask. It's my opinion, though, that there's nothing wrong with being basic. Just think, what if everyone wasn't basic? If everybody marched to the beat of a different drummer, or proudly let their freak flag fly, or didn't give a shit about what other people thought, or didn't give a shit in general - well, wouldn't that then be the "new basic"? We need basic people! Basic people make the rest of us feel so much better about ourselves. Those of us who dare dress, act, or think differently. Because deep down, we really do care what other people think, no matter how loudly we shout that we don't. And maybe, just maybe, basic folks are actually the same on the inside as they are on the outside. Just because they have no imagination, or are simply socially lazy, does not mean they deserve to be ridiculed or put down. Instead, we should just let them be. After all, us non-basics have far more interesting things to focus our attentions on, now don't we?
