Re: “Rude or racist?

After just moving to charlotte about a month ago...i can say almost all both white and black are pretty socially awkward and rude in general. Was actually pretty shocked at the over all selfish attitude this city carries. So much for southern hospitality.

Re: “Hannah Barnhardt is Charlotte's Real Observer

Her wit combined with her powerful observation skills blows me away. When I viewed her work at the show, I was hooked. They way that she communicates her observations through sketching and words is a powerful combination. I am so pleased to see this article!!

Re: “Vi Lyles Is The Only Choice For Mayor

Vi Lyles stuck the people of North Mecklenburg and anyone who travels north of Charlotte with tolls for the next 50 years, when she cast the 46% deciding vote in January, 2016 to support tolls at a city council meeting. I was there with over 40 other people who spoke out against the tolls, and were ignored by her. She condescendingly stated that the people in Lake Norman needed to find "alternate routes". I can't wait until you morons that voted for her down in Charlotte get stuck with toll lanes.

I wonder if she will last out her first term without getting carted away in handcuffs?

Re: “Vi Lyles Is The Only Choice For Mayor

Lyles voted against allocating $18.5 million to affordable housing, instead using that money for improvements to Ovens & Bojangles and reserving tourism tax money for the billionaires and their failed sucker - er - soccer bid. She also supported giving over a half-billion dollars to a corrupt foreign company to build $20-per-trip toll lanes on I-77, a project that the NCDOT admitted will do nothing to relieve congestion. Kenny Smith has been on the right side of both these crucial issues.

She should be in jail for giving city contracts to her son's company.
