Re: “Charleston preserves its beauty and its flaws in amber

Good article. As I have told countless friends who tell me they want to move here, "There is no black middle class and Charleston seems to be fine with that."

Let's face it - diversity is not something that seems to be getting any better here. We can gloss over the shame of slavery and the following century + of "might as well be slavery" - but something has to be done to change the make up of who we interact with on a daily basis. Who our children grow up with - who we have as friends that we don't describe as "my black friend."

Re: “The case against Waffle House

I like WH - crap food, but what I like is that the people that work there are nicest underpaid people you come across. There is something about their business model that ensures a short order cook takes pride in his job. Last time I was there I actually ordered a poached egg - must of thought I was at Hominy Grill or something - the cook asked me if it was poached perfectly and when I replied in the affirmative he said, "Oh good - I've been practicing." Hope for 'Merica

Re: “The coming year will mark a watershed moment in American politics

I don't typically agree with Will - but I do in this case. The Republican Party is done - and it's about time. Shame on the party of Lincoln for embracing the tactic of coddling racists and pandering to the wacko religious right. They deserve everything that's coming. If they are smart they'll go to the convention and strip out all the right-wing social craziness from the platform - focus on the economic principles many moderates agree with and broker a candidate that won't embarrass us anymore than America has already been embarrassed.

We're number 1!!! In what? Oh - gun deaths.

And it's amazing to me how the right wing (I'm talking to you USDefender) lashes out at the media for being liberal. This is GOP speak for "I don't like to read much and need my news in monosyllabic platitudes."

As Stephen Colbert points out - facts do lean to the left.

Re: “Quintin Washington talks about hotel’s request not to be photographed with Mother Emanuel Church

Welcome to the world of social media - don't have a Twitter account if you don't have someone at the helm that knows what they are doing.

I want to hear this story, "She found the tweet and photo I had posted, and it brought up a lot of emotions from June 17 because she worked that night."

You worked that night? Maybe watched the 1st responders and later found out what was going on?

And that excuses your social media shit show?

Good luck keeping your job -
