Re: “Randy Weston celebrates his roots, the Post and Courier ignores theirs

Criticism of the media and calling attention to the stereotypes and lazy reporting they espouse is critical to a free society. The P&C has been consistently on the wrong side of history, as has most of SC, regarding race related matters. When we threaten those who call out the establishment and seek to silence them via intimidation and ridicule is the exact path taken to the Iraq War and a Trump presidency. It’s Haire’s job to be the voice that criticizes corporate (typically conservative) local media – not be the next John Keats. Having read the original version of the article there was no attempt drag Eric’s name through the mud or cynical ploy to get hits. Eric had a misdemeanor, so what. Do you really think he would be embarrassed by that? I knew Eric to be a brash and opinionated guy and I loved him for that. It seems Haire is getting raked over the coals for that same qualities that we appreciated in Eric.

Haire did the right thing by honoring Ms. Senteners request. We should do the right thing and be prepared to have an adult conversation about racial matters and how they’re dealt with in the media.

Re: “White people give me the creeps

pfederhirt,

don't you feel stupid for bringing up the white girl who carved the 'B' in her own face? Or do you feel stupid b/c you believed her?
