Re: “O.N.E. Charlotte pushes for restorative justice in CMS

These folks are pissing into a fan.

CMS isn't going to change. They are too much in love with their own power to influence our children.

Re: “Water protectors at Oceti Sakowin camp in North Dakota brace for cold weather, eviction deadline

Don't go to the benefit mentioned. It promotes cultural appropriation. Give the money you'd spend to ocetisakowincamp.org instead. We don't need middlemen. If you're willing to participate in theft of culture, what else are you willing to steal? We're already fighting theft of land and water security. HUGELY disappointed in Charlotte, yet again.

Re: “Where is Charlotte's independent film community?

I must say,I have to disagree with the statement about Charlotte not being big on our film communities. This city is rapidly flourishing with young directors, producers, and actors. I've produced 14 features and a sitcom pilot with relatively no problems at all. My indie film company, Dreamboat Motion Pictures is currently working on our latest film project, The Basement, written and directed by Jamie Strong will release in the spring of 2017. Please friend us on Facebook: Jamie Strong.

Re: “Bizzare crime from Charlotte police files (Nov. 17)

What is equally BIZARRE is "The Blotter" photo at the top of the article. Just like virtually all security system ads on TV, the criminal is white. What is bizarre about this is the fact that roughly 70% of crime is committed by blacks. But then again, they wouldn't want to be more truthful and realistic in our ads because, God forbid, someone might call them racist. So let's keep hiding the facts in hopes that things will get better any day now...

Re: “Dating in black Charlotte

dating in charlotte five almost six years later is still like this. i moved here a year ago and have met the worst of the worst. i am convinced that this is the wrong place to live if you are a single black female. no race of men wants to date you. just be alone and try to find happiness with that or move away. this country town is dead anyway

Re: “Residents get proactive in the fight against gentrification on the west side

I find it funny that McAfee says she receives weekly offers to buy her house. I have lived in the neighborhood for many years and not once has anyone made an offer on my house which was renovated prior to 2007. I wouldnt be surprised if she received offers before 2007 when the market fell, but I have been watching housing prices here for many years and I just dont believe it, especially weekly!?
I say the renovations proposed for the west end are a move in the right direction. Just look at any crime map of the area, using Wesley Heights as an example. The crime rate has dropped dramatically as the neighborhood has revitalized. This is not a black vs white issue. I am a proud black home owner in Enderly Park who would like for nothing more than to see my neighborhood streets cleaned up. If anyone is being displaced, it should be the thugs bringing the drugs and crime to my neighborhood. This will only happen with the transition of rental properties into renovated homes owned by citizens who actually have something to contribute to society and our neighborhood.
There has got to be a way we can harmoniously do this without displacing our long-time senior residents like grandfathering them in with the flat tax.
