Re: “How Charleston's next mayor can help the city erase its stubborn color line

Seeing a play definitely enables you to talk about its historical subject. For sure.

Everyone knows there's no bias in dramaturgy.

Wow, Tom, are you trolling?

Denmark Vesey left writings that literally stated, "I want to start a race war." he told his followers to kill all white people.

Remember the last dude in Charleston who wanted to start a race war?

Razing Calhoun and praising Vesey lauds terrorism at the expense of discourse. Calhoun may have owned slaves, he may have stood up to the U.S. government to defend a corrupt institution, but if we forget his arguments-- if we forget what it MEANS to challenge the government-- we lose more than a historical anecdote. We lose the freedom that makes us Americans.

With Vesey as a model, our kids will learn that the only way to REALLY affect change is to start a race war. We will continue to fight hate with hate.

And building a monument to a resolution? That ignores the individuals that make up councils, discussions, and change. It's individuals that impact History, whether they're rebels or statesmen, black or white, slave or free.
