Found this because it was trending in the popular section of reddit so might be big depending on Trump’s next moves.

    Am I wrong or don’t we already have First in Freedom plates based on Meck Dec?

    I have rarely witnessed mass hysteria in this world, but on the few occasions I have, it's been in this thread. Edit: Spelling error

    That video above is from my friend Sebastian. He was in Charlotte several years on a work visa from Germany, and filmed this as he left. He is currently exploring Colombia. Really great guy.

    There are clues on Instagram. My guess: taller and faster than Kingda Ka... 530' tall, 107.6 mph in 2.5 seconds. Snake/moonshine themed. ride time 2 minutes 24 seconds ride time, passenger trains 16 people, 3,255 feet long. Launches twice, once forward then once backwards (since ride time is double that of kingda ka). My wild stab at it haha. Def. would put it as new tallest int he world until that tower in Orlando were built.

    I apologize if I misunderstood your sentiment. You are right, I do not know who you are. You don’t know who I am. I have a disabled mother that has suffered from stage 3 cancer, extremely aggressive treatment and a broken hip that resulted in her having to live in such housing that you feel is inappropriate in this area. I also have relatives that are of African American and South American descent. It struck a nerve, and the statement that may or may not have been intended in the way I interpreted only escalated my disdain, which made me feel a need to address it. I will drop it now as well.

    Ummm seriously? Did you selectively read? Here are the mentions if you need help: “Regardless of your misguided thought, crime VERY MUCH SO has a massive disparity by race, if you want to go down that route.” which started me taking note and then: “Culturally, certain races, in aggregate, don't generally value education as much as others.” So please just stop.

    Lol dude, you’re right I am done. Not because you have told me I am done, but because this is way off topic. As for me trying to get you to validate my narrative, that was not my intention. I just really wanted you to clarify your stance, so I can state this: You called that lady a NIMBY. Not sure if you know what that actually means. It is a derogatory term for someone who objects to something perceived as dangerous being built in their own neighborhood while raising no objections for it being built elsewhere. I’m not into name calling, I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. That is all.

    If you state you don’t want affordable housing in your neighborhood because of its correlation to crime, and then state that you have statistics that show certain races are more inclined to crime than others, then you are stating you don’t want low income members of those races in your neighborhood and you want to somehow price them out. That’s racist, whether you feel it’s justified by data or not.

    1. You offer no solution, but again you don’t want affordable housing in “your neighborhood” which is basically saying you want ghettos where low income people live and keep the crime in their neighborhoods instead of “yours”. I never said I wanted it for this project, I’m simply saying that your assumption that everyone wants to eliminate affordable housing in the general area that they live is just wrong. 3. If you are suggesting that an education and access to hire wages was your remedy to your homelessness and multiple incarcerations, then I find it comical that this conversation originated with you asking if you were the only person who didn’t want affordable housing in “your” neighborhood in relation to the neighborhood containing the regions largest community college

    What is your suggestion we do instead of incorporating affordable housing, sweep low income people under the rug by building large ghettos and isolate them from the economic centers of our community? Gentrify them out to Pineville or Gastonia? If you were to maybe volunteer with a church or a charity and get involved with your community and visit a disabled person or someone in need and learn about their experience, you may not be so inclined to lump all of these people into a statistic and make the generalition that crime would increase. I can share countless studies that indicate low income housing, when designed and managed correctly, does not coorelate with an increase in crime but actually decreases crime. As for your last comment about showing countless studies about how race is an indicator for crime level, why don’t you include the statistical data of which races had a right to higher education throughout the past 100 years, which races were enslaved and then given crap jobs for decades while fighting for their rights and living in a dystopian world where they were not equal. Maybe how government agencies introduced crack to their communities. Your white privileged post has literally sickened me.
