the difference is Greenville people don't pop up and say Greenville is better than Charleston when a Charleston person posts a ranking like this that includes Charleston but not Greenville.

Charleston fans will do that on a Greenville accolade thread, even one posted on the Greenville forum.

There's a reason I'm coming back I love the Victorian era and LOVE the scenery of the lowcountry. I was kinda forced to move in 2014. Can't wait to be back Many Greenville people say they "like/love" Chas to visit from time to time but every time I go I feel I step back in time and I'm totally depressed to go back to the upstate ha. And y'all may not like it but I LOVE the marsh/harbor smell!

Step back in time is what I don't won't to remember as a black man. Not interested in seeing slave trade areas. I prefer something more modern. Also like the retail available up here.

Charleston is far more progressed than anything up there.

Really? Well I'm sorry you feel that way.

That has NEVER crossed my mind when I go downtown. I think of men and women in 1700-1800s costume, how it must have been to have no vehicles, no technology.....

I think that's how many people like to think of Charleston. As far as remembering the slave days, that's why they are building memorials.

There's only one existing slave trade area in downtown Charleston, the Old Slave Mart Museum. Otherwise, as a Black man, I enjoy the historic urban experience, great food, and scenic vistas of downtown Charleston; they don't make cities like that anymore.

it is hard to escape the slavery / civil war stuff if you live in Charleston. as a native of the state, i get tired of hearing about that stuff.

you see people say that Charleston is 'more progressive' than Gville but they don't ever back that up. it is a casual smear.

I understand that but I don't get the "slave trade areas" criticism.

Have you ever been to New Orleans?

Do you live there? If you do, then move. It happened hundreds of years ago. Get over it.

That might sound harsh but many Jews got over the Holocaust and some became inspirational leaders and writers. What about the victims of 9/11 and military members who have been killed in every war? Let's just hate every country we came into contact with. The same goes for victims of rapists, molesters, abusers. I am a survivor of one of those and I don't hold it against my abusers.

It's called forgive and forget.

Now, back to the main reason why this thread was created.
