Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg thinks body cameras keep black people safe

Thank you Jessie! You captured the essence of what, I'm sorry and deeply disappointed to say, appalled me about the mayor's 35 minute commentary. My jaw literally dropped at some of the things he said. Regardless of whether or not you support CAJM, their call to action, or their tactics, they are not the enemy. And they did not attack the mayor, the police chief, or CPD. Yet in his remarks he accused CAJM of doing just that, as did others. And in so doing, he and others attacked CAJM. This was deflection. Unfortunately this defensive display moved us away, not towards, the unity he -- and we -- crave.

Re: “Charleston can lead the country by getting its story straight

Thank you. When I encourage friends to visit Charleston, or when people ask about which tours to go on, I say "here are the ones that tell the truth" and top of the list is McLeod Plantation, part of the county parks. The interpreters there use primary documents and tell the history of all, sharing information about enslaved Africans and descendants after Emancipation. I was on a tour there recently. The whole group of visitors were white, and a white man in the group asked the tour guide if she would have told a different story if there were Black folks there "because some of us are about to cry." She paused and said "no, we tell the same story to everyone. This is the history of all of us."
Folks interested in learning about how Charleston literally whitewashed the past for tourists, and dedicated to doing this, not accidentally, but as a concerted strategy, should read A Golden Haze of Memory.

Re: “Why I'm wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt to the polls

Thank you Rev. Rutledge. You're a role model, a man of courage and grace. I too will be wearing my #BlackLivesMatter shirt to the polls tomorrow. I too am never prouder than when I think of those who fought to expand rights. I am hopeful that we can learn again in our country how to disagree without violence or name calling, that we can disagree respectfully. This election has been a difficult experience.
