Rural Black Candidate: Brothas Gotta Stick Together
ASPIRING OFFICEHOLDER DEDICATES HIMSELF TO “BLACK NEEDS”
Jasper County, S.C. has seen some rough times in recent years …
First, the county was sold down the river (literally) by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – who cut a self-serving deal with Georgia that effectively killed a public-private port facility on the Jasper side of the Savannah River.
Haley also preserved state government’s monopoly on gambling by blocking a proposed casino resort in Hardeeville, S.C. that would have created 10,000 new jobs (and done so with zero government incentives).
On top of all that, there’s an ongoing federal investigation into its government-run school district – which is the worst government-run school district in the entire state of South Carolina (which is home to the worst government-run school system in the entire country).
Yeah … do THAT math.
Jasper – which according to the 2010 Census is 46 percent black – is run (into the ground) by corrupt black leaders. Chief among them? S.C. Sen. Clementa Pinckney, who does not like to be called out for his corruption.
But hey … “brothas gotta stick together.”
Don’t believe us? Check out this Facebook post from the “Reverend” Samuel Gregory, a local school district employee and former county council chairman who is currently running for a seat on Jasper’s county council …
Hello Facebook Friends. I’m here today to inform you on my candidacy for County Council on June 10, 2014. We, as a black community, need to cone together to help out on some major issues plaguing our younger and future generation. If you want someone who will get the help needed to solve unsolved murders, is dedicated to ensuring better education for our children, dedicated to our (black) needs in general, then vote for me on June 10. If you are 17 and will be 18 years old by November, you are also allowed to vote on June 10. It is time for us as a people, to remember, united we stand divided we fall! We must stop the senselessness that we have been demonstrating for a long time and remember that we should be a PROUD people and become future role models for OUR children and not let others of A DIFFERENT RACE raise nor dictate how our children should act nor how they should be! So come out on June 10 and vote Samuel Gregory for County Council and let’s take back the TRUE AND PROUD meaning of being BLACK.
(Here’s the screen capture).
So to recap, Gregory is “dedicated to our (black) needs” and apparently doesn’t want “others of A DIFFERENT RACE” involved in the education of black youth.
Amazing … wonder if this “Reverend” preaches such divisiveness from his pulpit on Sundays?
We wrote earlier today on some ugly racism targeting blacks. Now we have some equally ugly racism being offered ostensibly on their behalf …
UPDATE: Here’s some more information on Gregory. According to Bluffton Today, he was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and battery after assaulting a student at Hardeeville-Ridgeland Middle School. Gregory was placed on paid administrative leave in the wake of the assault, some of which was captured on video.
