Re: “Recent legislation restricting access to body camera footage renders them moot

Banning the public from access to police footage "promotes transparency"? Really, Pat??--and how exactly are you prepared to prove that? Once again, our so-called governor demonstrates that he is working from a completely different dictionary than the ones we learned to use in school. In PatLand, apparently, war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance (of citizens) is strength (of NC GOP and its tools, including the NCGA majority and the elements purportedly sworn to "protect and serve" those both in and out of power).

Re: “Rude or racist?

As kid in DC, with my Mom, we would go to McDonald's and someone would always sit in the other part of the 4 top. I remember asking my Mom why people did that. IN suburban Virgina people would use social graces to ask if it was OK to sit with someone else. In the city, 10 short miles away, it was the opposite.

Re: “A black girl on Gentrification Street

"rates I worked hard to escape during my time in New York City"

LOL. The only kind of apartment you'd score for $1,200 in NYC would've come with 2 or 3 roommates. Plus in NYC the renter pays a broker a month's rent just to help them find a place.

And if you balk at paying a $149 app fee for an apartment, wait'll you see the fees associated with buying a house and taking out a mortgage. Oh, plus when the toilet clogs or the lawn need cutting, that's all on YOU.

Re: “We're all just subjects of the almighty DMV

The irony is that I literally just got my license reinstated after a brief 2 week suspension and my tags had been expired since the end of July. I just paid for that as well and it's only by the grace of God that no riff raft occurred so now I'm eagerly awaiting both new documents so I can get back to riding clean.

Re: “A black girl on Gentrification Street

If it makes you feel any better, I do believe the Plaza Midwood growth can best be attributed to sprawl and the growth of residential units in what was formerly a commercial area.
