Re: “Protesters threaten to shut down Ravenel Bridge toward Mt. Pleasant at 4 p.m.

Swampfox, you can suuk my diik, how is that for attention getting? Just keep paying your taxes like the small-minded sheep you are and let the big boys handle these complicated issues.

Lynn02, I hate to break it to you, but your comment was mad racist. If you don't interact with the black community outside of extremely limited circumstances just leave it at that, don't spew hate about a culture we are both sure you don't understand. Take it from another white person who doesn't know anything about their culture either! Don't let symptoms of the culture of poverty cloud your judgement; lets not forget that Jews, Italians and the Irish were looked at in the same way at one point in American history.

Re: “Protesters threaten to shut down Ravenel Bridge toward Mt. Pleasant at 4 p.m.

Bryan,
The goal of this movement is to convince white people that this sort of interaction with the police is routine for minorities. Think about it this way: when an all-white family comes together for a family reunion, how many of them will have negative interactions with police based on race? We both know that 9/10 families will have no experience with this at all, therefore these sorts of "loud" protests are necessary. The goal is not to disrespect any cause, but rather open a door into a world 90% of white people have no idea actually exists. It's not the friendliest way of introducing these realities, but real change never comes from just holding signs in front of a building (ex: Revolutionary and Civil war).

Re: “Protesters threaten to shut down Ravenel Bridge toward Mt. Pleasant at 4 p.m.

The complete lack of care for respecting black lives oozes from every comment here. I am sure every one of you is going to read this comment and scoff it off, just like you scoff of problems outside of the white community. Have you considered that maybe they are protesting on this bridge so the people WHO ACTUALLY VOTE will notice? The disregard for fact and logic in this state is astounding, no wonder your "tea party" governor expanded the government by over a billion dollars and she was reelected with no real contention. Good article though.

Re: “The Agenda: New libraries; City panel recommends looking for new cruise site; Suit filed by SCSU students

What's ridiculous is the fact that people are worried about $80k that is needed yet completely disregard the millions of dollars wasted every year on boondoggle projects that aren't openly advertised. Bah bah sheeple
