It is obvious you know nothing about which you speak. These lily livered liberal Democrats in Charlotte would LOVE to have a black sheriff. Most of them are still basking in the glory of Harvey Gantt, one of the first black Mayors of a predominantly white city in the South.
However, the scam that Slick Nick and his posse tried to pull off smelled so bad even the liberal Dems had to contest it! Slick Nick is a con-man, a product of a society that has made it so easy for a black man to be awarded jobs and degrees for which he is not remotely qualified.
Go back to kindergarten junior. Here's another tip: Spellcheck - look into it.
"It is obvious you know nothing about which you speak." First of all moron I did not speak, I wrote. Get yourself a brainchecker.
What is obvious is that you have been lying for so long that you believe your own lies.
I wasnt aware Nick Mackey was charged with election fraud. Is that what youre charging here?
You call him Slick Nick. Is that your way of showing me just what an "insider" you are? From reading your stink I would have sworn that youre just another idiot repeating what you read or heard in the media. Might I be right?

Let me sum up why Charlotte is miserable...Poor rednecks who pay more attention looking away from the roads. Dumb white people who were raised by dumb white people. Stupid blacks who get welfare, wic, you name it...but somehow they manage to get a cell phone, pager, gadgets white people usually wouldn't spend their savings on. So far we have rednecks who don't look at the road. Dumb whites, and blacks who don't know how to drive and talk on their phone. Then you have the idiots that don't know how to merge on a highway and slam on their brakes. I almost forgot the LACK OF TURN SIGNALS, is this a "small town" thing? Not using a turn signal is both dangerous, and typical of this area. I almost forgot the dumbos that drive in the left lane, just barely going the speed limit..big no no. Perhaps if there were public transportation for the poor people to ride all over, those idiots wouldn't be on the roads. How could I forget the MEXICANS that have now become what the southeast is all about...catering to the hispanico's. Everythings in Spanish isn't it? Visit other cities, you won't see much of it unless it's LA. Let's do a review...Dumb poor white people, people on their phone, nobody uses turn signals, blacks are slow and not paying attention either, Mexicans are staring at women that drive by with their WOLF murals and shit all over their cheap ghetto cars. Then you got the education system that is horrible, generations of people not going to college, or even doing well in high school. Say what you want about other cities and their crime, but if Charlotte doesn't do something about the Illegals running around and the blacks reproducing like it's their job they too will be just like other cities.

Second place you write about truth as if you know how to locate it. Take the case of Nick Mackey; Nick earned a law degree, had a Masters degree in
Business Administration, Public Administration, Criminology to go along with his undergrad degree. On top of that he worked 12 years for the CMPD making his way to the rank of Sergant.
Then he wins the election for Sheriff and suddenly he is stripped of the election and white idiots like you begin to babble on about all kinds of meaningless things.
You call that facing the truth? You cant find the truth because finding the truth requires a cognitive process that you no longer posess.
Well the truth about Nick Mackey is that he was recommended for termination by CMPD but resigned, has been held in contempt of court for failing to be present in court to represent a client, falsified court documents, is being investigated by the North Carolina State Bar and had his election declared invalid by his party because citizens he named as his supporters came forward stating their names were falisified on election precinct documents. Thats just the facts. Seems like the behavior of a sheriff should be exemplary. He did a bang up job of screwing up and didn't really require anyone's assistance with losing the sheriff position.

So tell me why the majotity of the crime in Charlotte os committed by blacks? And why Charlotte cannot have any kind of function or event that isn't ruined by black thugs causing trouble? EVERY 4th of July event is PROOF of that. I won't even attend. Oh I guess that is McCrorys' fault too? Why by not having ENOUGH police protection? What about all the robberies and shootings? Who do you think commits most of them? White Rednecks? Yea right. I can drive (if I dare) thru a black neighborhood, and the thugs look at me with contempt. A black person can drive thru a predominately white part of town, and no one would want to "DO" something to them.

It amuses me when people like you try to write over their intelligence level. They can usually pull it off for a while but their lack of intelligence and education comes out eventually. Your best responses are usually some form of,'Oh yeh, well so are you!'

Slick Nick is a crook, and the fraud which he perpetrated is more glaring evidence of the appalling stupidity of the Democratic Party, and the almost total lack of morality in the black community.

What I have been reading makes me so sad. Why are you people filled with such hate? I think Charlotte is a beautiful diverse place and I love living here. I have been here for 6 years and have made several friends, white, black and latino. However, I am an open-minded person that gives all people a chance and enjoys being around people that are different than myself. My only gripe would be how hard it seems to be to find a date! Get out and about and enjoy all that Charlotte has to offer, try new spots and fall in love with this wonderful city!!! If you don't know what to do because you sit at home and hate on this city and write racist remarks here are some ideas...Blumenthall, uptown for dinner, Discovery Place, white water center, Mint Museum, NODA, Visulite, Neighborhood Theater, local pubs, South Park Mall, all the wonderful parks and greenways, Polka Dot Bakery, Lowes Motor Speedway. Have fun exploring :)

Charlotte is a wonderful community to live and grow-up in. Oh and as for your nasty comments about most people in Charlotte being poor and unhappy- I make 20 grand a year (aka very little money) and I adore Charlotte, can't think of anywhere I else I would rather be. Stop hating.
You Tell Them!!!
I'm about to transfer from Rochester, MI to the Charlotte area. The banking industry does not consist of all the jobs in the Charlotte. I pursued a career in sales and marketing. If you love to golf, and enjoy wounderful weather, Charlotte, NC is awsome to begin a career. Tell me what you think, and why this city rocks.

I am a native of Charlotte and 53 years old, so I think I have a right to write this comment about what I've been reading. I've read all these post about Charlotte and have come to realize that: If you don't like living here, then get the hell out and go back where you came from. Charlotte didn't have the "big city" problems until the influx of people moving here. True Charlotteans do use their turn signals, do allow people to exit side streets when traffic backs up, we do get over when going slower in the left lane(it's a state law, slower traffic keep right) you would know that if your from another state and read the drivers handbook. When you see this abuse, look at the plates or other stickers on the car and see where their from, another state. Oh geeg, what's your definition of "redneck" and where are you from? To quote "So far we have rednecks who don't look at the road. Dumb whites, and blacks who don't know how to drive and talk on their phone. Then you have the idiots that don't know how to merge on a highway and slam on their brakes." I find these actions in any town I've visited, so itís not just a "Charlotte thing" The Mackey incident, just look at the mans record. Not a black, white, Latino, yellow or what ever color. Go by his record and unwillingness to open his history. I don't want any body that won't show his records to have any thing to do with our "law" system. Kwame-Osei, What? And what is your knowledge on this?ďMost of the native Charlotteans other than the transplants have only been to Myrtle Beach and the Carolina mountains as far as travel. Most social functions they attend are either tobacco spitting contest or watermelon eating competitions.Ē Do we criticize camel racing, with your name, I assume youíre not from American heritage. Hey, but to each his own. As far as tearing down the historic buildings, look deep into who has brought this on, the transplants. They want the south to change to their ways and change every thing about how we live and grow. Enough with my soapbox stance, I just have one more thing to say, and itís a Southern thing,,,,,,,,,, Put your HEART in Dixie, or get you ass out!

All this racist hogwash... no room for it. Charlotte is a beautiful, growing city with much diversity. More than 5 Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here, and it certainly ain't due completely to whites. So many southern whites are so quick to cast down AA's b/c they are intimidated. The fact is, AA's excel in "white man's" games as well. AA's have the most elite figure in golf, soccer, and will soon have the highest office U.S. politics has to offer. So get your head out of your ass, rip down your Ronald Reagon posters and get ready to support the New Era.

You are right. Blacks have enjoyed much more success than whites in three main areas: sports, entertainment, and crime.

yeah and sports and entertainment pay a hell of alot more than managerial, or even CEO positions at companies like wachovia pay, and they commit just as much crime as whites do. if the majority of cops were black, the # of arrests would be vice-versa

Born and raised in NC. (Foothills) I live right outside of Charlotte now. I think Charlotte or where ever you live is what you make of it. It seems to me these posting aren't getting anyone anywhere. Just thought I needed to add my two cents. Black, white, yellow, red, poor, rich, educated or not anyone can volunteer to help their community and make it something special.

Do yourself a favor and see if you can find a fifth grader to edit your comments, a white fifth grader that is. A black fifth grader probably could not do much better than you did.

I think you overvalued your comments by about 1 1/2 cents. If you volunteer to help your community in Charlotte you will be sent to a black area and killed for your Timex. You need to get a clue.

Has anyone ever done a study to see if there is a correlation between these miserable cities and the percentage of black population?
New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, LA, Chicago, Charlotte ... hmmmmm
How about school performance (or violence) versus racial makeup?
Such studies would be excellent opportunities for blacks to prove that they are as guiltless as they say they are.
That would be a good job for you to do and get back to us.

When I moved to NC 28 years ago--NC was at the bottom of the barrel for education--they ranked number 3 from the bottom--where they are now..I have no clue. There was an article in Time magazine back then on the poor quality of education in NC. I know educators who moved here and left recently cause they couldnt' believe not just the poor quality of education but the lousy parenting going on in this state among black and white parents both. I am not in the field of education so I really dont' know what its like to teach in the classroom or what they have to put up with--with parents and children.

I lived in several areas of the south plus different areas of NC and found Charlotte to be somewhat backwards as compared to the triad area of NC. Which shocked me when I first came here cause I thought being a bigger city that it would be more advanced but they weren't. I will retire in Winston-Salem as I prefer people in that area.

You can tell people in Charlotte that were born and raised here cause they are just clueless. Then we have this poorly devised growth. A mayor who has a train fetish and forgets this city needs roads but I guess he thinks everyone only travels uptown to southpark, nor does he get not only does everyone not want to ride that train but that its not big enough to accompany the population. Now this is a mayor with a vision. A beltway of two lanes--two whole lanes mind you and stops building dead in its tracks till get this ...2014! Whatever happened to Independence Blvd.? Same thing. Charlotte is a joke folks.

Charlotte has always had a lot of crime going back 30-40 years ago compared to other places in NC.

Before Charlotte entices business to move here then they need to do what other cities do and that is put in the road systems before the growth or at least start. Or else do not encourage any growth. Stay small town who cares. Its been a long time since I have been to Raleigh except to the airport but dont' they have two beltways.

One thing I will say about Charlotte that you dont' see in a lot of places in the south is that Charlotte is the only place I know that sends their redneck sons and daughters to college and they still come back rednecks but now you have educated rednecks still clueless. The ones that aren't clueless don't come back here. Just like your post proves who and what you are and why this city is such a mess.

And you stayed in this ignorant, miserable state for 28 years? Doesn't sound to me like you raised the intelligence level much with your presence.

So the answer to our transportation woes is more roads for more cars burning more gas and creating more pollution? You must be the "Manny" of Pep Boys fame. Maybe with Moe and Jack you three might be able to generate a triple digit IQ.

You just move to that bastion of enlightenment and progress that is Winston-Salem. We'll try to get along without you somehow.

Did I say that I stayed here for 28 years? Where did you get that...I said I moved here 28 years ago. My job moved me here because no one but few had the education and expertise down here in computers as I and many others in my field did as it was just coming into use here due to the banking industry. Which took me to all of the southeast. So I had been living and traveling through most of the southeast for 28 years. I spent 5 years in Atlanta also and I am sorry that is my fault for not explaining in depth but my work history in my field is a long story.

You cannot blame out of towners for what your city planners decided to do here in Charlotte. Talk to your own Charlotteans who encourage this growth and business. You are exactly an example of what I was speaking of. You do nothing to bring yourself up in life instead critize those that have to do what you refuse to do or don't know how to do. I am sorry your little world was turned upside down but I did not do it ...your fellow brethern did. Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't it Raleigh that wanted this growth instead? Talk to your fellow brothers in Charlotte and see if they won't run the banking out of here to Raleigh, with that Lowes speedway and the football stadium and the train..what the heck keep the train.

You are absolutely right my presence did nothing to raise the intelligence level of people like you..not what I was here for, but then again, you got a computer in you home don't you..your banking can be done at home on your computer if you so desired. If you go to the hospital due to a bad sickness or accident in the middle of the night thanks to my knowledge there is computer equipment tied from the hospital to the radiologist home to see what is wrong in a split second.

So you see you are right cause me and many like me did not raise the intelligent level or we would not be having this conversation now would we?

Take it easy, manny! What are you, crazy or just drunk?

Are you saying you brought the computer to us ignorant southerners? What's next, you and Al Gore invented the Internet?

If your response is any indication of your mental stability you'd better take early retirement. That may explain why the bank computers around here are always "down", the atm's don't work, computer thefts from banks and bank customers are rampant, nice job manny!
