Even the grocery bags fell apart immediately.
Seemed like a city struggling with large poor population or economically,
So GS is more possible.
Winston-Salem seemed much nicer. Didnt spend alot of time at bus station though.
Felt very uncomfortable and monitored on bus from Charlotte to Winston Salem, by passengers on bus. However this was not the case when leaving from Winston-Salem.
Second bus is newer, don't know if that is a factor or not. Seems like it.
Charlotte was very negative and i felt....subdued. The only cool part was downtown and that was an atypical gentrified downtown area with a displaced homeless populations.
I am wondering if 'The Homeless' are actually being used as corporate spies or something like that in these gentrified environments, which is why they cant manage homeless services and people better. (I loathe referring to this as 'the homeless problem'. The way the base system is set up is where problems begin, as well as society is not being honest about why many people become part of the subculture of 'the homeless' to begin with.
Of course its a problem. It seems that the world of homelessness in America at least is hiding alot of society's corruption and human/civil rights abuses.
Charlotte was just seedy or corporate and the activity in the Greyhound station was out of control, without proper security.
I got the impression that 'decent' Whites simply refuse to frequent such a place down here. When getting off Megabus, the blacks were nice and polite enough but seemed a little freaked out by our presence.
The rent-a-cops around the bus station were cool. The local police gave me no trouble directly.
