Re: “No one should be surprised by Catherine Templeton’s Confederate pride

Hi Lynnar... I'm still trying to understand how this article went so far above your head... but nevermind that. Since you chose to opine in a way that is so uneducated, and facile, I can't even seriously engage in the REAL political discourse, that you probably don't want anyway. I'm kinda disappointed because I thoroughly enjoy engaging in that type of political discourse. Although I want to correct you on soooo many of the fallacies you've written, I'm instead going to break faith with First Lady Michelle Obama, and go a little lower than usual. Gotta reciprocate your energy! Your heartfelt soliloquy (with poetic lines like "Trump is a not a racist. He has minorities in his administration" -- *poetry finger snap*) pretty much affirms that... you're trash. And not 'recyclable', or 'bio-degradable', trash... that good ol' fashioned 'used batteries in the garbage can' trash... 'dairy that went bad' trash.. '6-pack holder plastic around a baby duck's neck' trash... 'cigarette butts in the water fountain' trash... 'a ticket and up to $500 fine if you're caught littering' trash. The kinda trash that you usually smell before you see, and believe me, your comment reeks of exactly that kind of trash. But listen, keep doing your thing, girl.. lastly.. for what it's worth, black people, aka the enslaved, tortured, marginalized Africans (whom, per you, are silver medal winners in the White Supremacist-Sponsored Terrorism Olympics, behind the Jewish victims of the atrocity known as the Holocaust) were actually considered, 3/5 of a person, not the whole "2/3" thing you waxed so poetically about above (changes the math just a bit, but hey subhuman is subhuman, right?) Keep going tho Lynny, you're really doing GREAT! #TRASH

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

"Further, given that officers are rarely indicted for and almost never convicted of killing Black people, even with video evidence, could it be that there is a concern that body cam video doesn't necessarily facilitate accountability, therefore there's little reason to file a formal complaint when nothing gets done? I'm not sure how else to say this, so here goes: Body cameras do not protect Black people. Video evidence does not ensure justice."

Re: “The Charleston Lie

"As for the African American experience..", the non-black person writes, insistent on educating readers, as he pulls from his own robust experiences of being Black in Charleston... innnncredible. Stay Classy folks.
