Re: “Change is creeping in to the west side

This is a thinly veiled racist piece. The author's "they" is comprised of just about anyone he doesn't like, particularly those who like diversity, hipsters, hardworking upwardly mobile professionals and developers - all implied to be white profit seekers. If the racial impetus were to be reversed, as it probably was on the West Side several decades ago, when whites were exiting the neighborhood and blacks were moving in, such an author would of course be rightly labeled a bigot. But, when whites (as well as a quite diverse group) move back in, investing and causing real estate values to rise, all he sees is the victimhood of the poor, black class.

Re: “N.C.'s fossil fuel fury

"On Nov. 11, while many of us were still fuming about the midterm elections,..."

I wasn't. In fact, less than half of voters were fuming. The majority of voters were likely very pleased. Those who stayed home don't matter. If you don't vote, don't complain. On a note, I have heard of amazingly few stories of people who were denied access to a polling place because of any new voter ID laws.

If your candidate lost...oh well. Better luck in 2 years.

Re: “A ride down MLK provides peek into city's racial psyche

I agree with you wholeheartedly on this Jarvis. I as a young professional have tip-toed my way through certain events in Charlotte based on how I think I would be received. It's not always to do with race but it's just a matter of fitting in and feeling comfortable arounds others. I look forward to reading the story nonetheless.

Re: “This summer, consider solar

Another company offering services to homeowners and building owners is www.weknowsolar.com. They offer financing and really know what they are talking about.

Re: “Janet Cowell leads the way for women Democrats in North Carolina

Way to gloss over the Facebook corruption.

Cowell’s buddy Erskine Bowles is a board member of Facebook, a board member of Morgan Stanley (underwriter for Facebook’s IPO), a fundraising “bundler” for Cowell, and the owner of an investment advisory firm that Cowell hired to run the North Carolina pension fund. Anyone can see that the entire Facebook IPO fiasco that cost North Carolina millions was a sweetheart deal designed to funnel money to crony Erskine and his Facebook and Morgan Stanley buddies. This is corruption of the highest order.
