Re: “Gay Faces, Gay Places: Charleston activists send a message to Garry Smith

So, I can love and respect my gay neighbor, but if I privately disapprove of his/her lifestyle, I'm fair game to be hated and excoriated by others for that belief. Got it. Thank you.

Re: “Will the Midtown redevelopment be 'a nail in the coffin' for the Eastside?

The Eastside only started being inhabited by Campbell's "urban Gullahs" in the mid-20th century. That part of Town used to be full of warehouses, factories, rail yards, etc. Eventually houses and neighborhoods popped up, mostly owned and rented by German, Irish, Jewish, and other immigrants. Over time, those houses changed hands and became predominantly black owned or occupied. It was just the result of common trends all around the country. Any historically significant African presence there might have been a march or sit-in during the Civil Rights Era. All the area has to show for it now is poverty, dilipidation, crime, and - FINALLY - some redevelopment. This is not racist at all. ANYBODY can 'gentrify' his/her neighborhood, regardless of race or religion or blah blah blah.

Re: “Should Mt. Pleasant have its own school district?

More entitled? You want to see a school district crash and burn? Wow, pretty strong remarks from someone with children of her own.
