Re: “How South Carolina history was hijacked to sell the Lost Cause

Excellent article! As a "transplant" (in 1970), I keep trying to understand why Southern myopia about the past is so persistent, but I guess it takes a LONG time for many humans to accept uncomfortable truths. I spent two months with the American military in Kosovo. The Christians and Muslims there were still (culturally) engaged in a battle that had ended 500 years ago. Sigh...

Re: “Men explain why the rest of us should be quiet

Thank you!
It's rare to read or hear this perspective from a man, but no man would actually read such a column written by a woman. At least two of your respondents were men--they may have read the piece!

Re: “Thomas Dixon gives us a choice

Good overview of a life of sin and redemption! We need to redeem this state and its difficult past. Dixon will have my vote.

Re: “Why didn't any white officials attend the Nehemiah Action?

Good commentary. I was there, too, saw the same things, and was deeply disappointed in our elected officials with pale complexions.
