Re: “The political dynamics of City Council have shifted — and not in Teck's favor

Maybe Shealy won because he was white and he outspent Williams, I got several mailings from Shealy urging me to vote for him, and no mailings from Williams. Maybe Shealy is rich. I could not get to the polling place in time, so I did not vote for Williams. But my vote would not have mattered, he lost by a huge margin. West Ashley is now a mainly white area.

Re: “CofC panel on King Street brainstorms how to save local businesses

We actually have park and ride running to downtown now. The #40, 30 & 10 bus lines are lined with places to park and all of them run right to the Visitor's Center downtown. You can plan your bus trips on google maps now, which updates in real time. Students and faculty at CofC can ride for free.

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

Maybe the black man in that touching story had already asked if the car was on the way.

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

I, too, am a self-aware white guy and I couldn't agree more with Mr. Kearney's assessment. Minorities get some of what they want when the majority is ready to "allow" it or forced into it - but never before.

Re: “Sanford Dem challenger Joe Cunningham: "Guys, don't be creepy."

What's the incentive to not be creepy? Republicans have made it perfectly clear they will support pedophiles and rapists, in addition to Nazis. And voters will go right along with it because we can't have those evil Democrats in power trying to improve qualities of life.

Re: “Child nursing stations set to debut at Charleston International Airport

That is shameful! I was going to make a sarcastic comment about closeting nursing mothers, but this idea is too despicable for humor.
So how many sexist old men did it take to decide on this measure?

Re: “Child nursing stations set to debut at Charleston International Airport

This must be a joke. Is there ventilation? What do you do with your stroller and/or suitcase?

Re: “Lindsey Graham today: Stop labeling Trump a kook. Graham in 2016: "I think he's a kook."

Mr. Graham, If you don't think the President is a kook unfit to serve, then YOU are a kook unfit to serve. As a matter of FACT, you are complicit, as is all of the GOP Congress, in his malfeasance. I question your patriotism. And you cemented your loyalty to your corporate donors OVER YOUR constituents on video revealing what really is important to the GOP - greed of the almighty dollar. With all due respect, you and your ilk are amoral. I. Am. Done. With. You.

Re: “Charlottesville attack reignites local activists' call to remove John C. Calhoun statue

We don't want any statues of Lincoln in Dixie. He was responsible for the murders of thousands of white southerners. Keep the statues of our President Davis and heroes like General Lee up though.

Re: “How a recent State Supreme Court decision highlights the educational challenges ahead

Teachers in schools with a lot of poor kids ought to be better paid than teachers in schools with a lot of middle class kids, so they can attract and keep the best teachers. Middle class kids will usually do fine and graduate high school even with lower quality teachers. Also schools with a lot of poor kids need a lot more counselors to help the kids, due to the problems a lot of poor kids have, like malnutrition, crowded substandard housing, poorly educated parents, absent parents, PTSD due to living in a more violent neighborhood, etc.

Graham is at least a little more reasonable than Trump.

Re: “How a recent State Supreme Court decision highlights the educational challenges ahead

Remember, when it comes to education, increasing funding is just "throwing money at the problem." The only acceptable things to throw money at are the military and corporations. America!
