Re: “South Carolina shares blame with Sametta Heyward

Well, of course it was more than a really bad idea! I don't fault you for not hearing the sarcasm in my voice. I felt compelled to write in as I couldn't agree more with the author's comment about how the state will find the money to prosecute but not to provide child care- kind of makes you think, don't you think? Plus, I should know better than to argue with the mentally challenged, but some of the comments pissed me off!

Re: “South Carolina shares blame with Sametta Heyward

I agree with Tarheel in that racism plays a huge part in the downfall of society. How can one argue that? When I hear people talk about "good" schools VS "bad" schools in the south I know what that really means is that a school is deemed good if it's mostly white. Bad if it's mostly black. Let's just be honest here! Also: it is 2007. Nobody is holding anybody back. In this country, you can be born into poverty and go on to do great things. It doesn't have to define you. I don't think black people should look to white (political leaders) to fix things. Obviously, it's never going to happen.

Re: “South Carolina shares blame with Sametta Heyward

You know, I agree with taking responsibility for your own life. In a perfect world, we grow up with a family that loves us and then we get a great education (because this is AMERICA!) and then we meet the love of our life and THEN we reproduce. Right? The truth is that sometimes life isn't fair. Sometimes, things don't go according to plan. We make mistakes. I can't imagine being so self-righteous as to think about who should be having kids and who shouldn't. This is so not the point. The people that are judging Ms. Heyward need to thank their lucky stars that they don't have to live her life, that they didn't have to make that decision...of course, it was a really, REALLY bad idea, but can you imagine being that person that was so desperate for an income that they thought it OK? I find it so interesting that in a state that regards church-going as a way of life that you all actually have the audacity to be hateful and to judge. Jesus would not be proud. I am not a Christian (just in case it's not obvious) but don't they believe in helping others less fortunate? So, yes, it is all of our problem that we don't know how to take care of our own. When one of us fails, we all fail. We are all connected. We are so lucky to live in a country with resources such as ours. Sure, some people don't realize that. Some people are stuck trying instead of doing. I don't have all the answers, I just know that what we are doing as a nation right now is not working.
