Massa Katon Gone Fix SC State!

Only in South Carolina would a member of a whites only country club (and whites only debutante society) think it’s a good idea to campaign for the board of a historically black public university.

Don’t get us wrong … we’ve got nothing against private clubs admitting (or not admitting) whoever they want. And we’ve stated ad nauseam our support for the privatization of our state’s bloated, duplicative and dysfunctional higher ed system.

And we think “historically black” colleges are inherently discriminatory.

But still, it takes a special kind of politician – like former S.C. Republican Party chairman Katon Dawson – to think that’s in his wheelhouse.

Along with several other prominent politicians (including S.C. Senate President John Courson and former S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster), Dawson is a member of the Forest Lake Country Club in Columbia, S.C. – which excludes black members.

In fact Dawson’s affiliation with this club – and his habitual dishonesty in addressing it – was a major issue in his failed 2009 race for chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Yet despite this, Dawson is running for an at-large seat on the board of S.C. State University – which has been plagued by scandal and fiscal mismanagement for decades.

So can “Massa Katon” turn things around?

Ready the mint juleps and seersucker suits, people …

Since Forest Lakes also excludes Jewish members, maybe he could also look into being a trustee of Yeshiva University.

Forest Lake, being right outside Fort Jackson, had a LONG history of giving an honorary membership to the general in charge on post. That ended when the Fort had its first black comander.

Fits if you want a real story you should check out one of the CURRENT white members of the SC State Board of Trustees. His name, Robert Waldrep. Why should you check this out you ask? Simple he is actually, and flagrantly I might add, violating the prohibition against dual-office holding. He not only serves on the SC State Board of Trustees, but also serves on the Savannah Maritime Commission as John Courson’s designee, AND serves on the Governors Savannah River Committee. He’s straight up triple dipping!

Does Melissa Harris Perry know about Katon’s country club?
He’s on her show on a fairly regular basis.
Who pays for him to go to NYC for the broadcast?

How many members of the present SC State Board are members of the NAACP? I.S. Leevy Johnson, a Toal do-boy if ever there was one – is a member of at least two all Black social clubs. I know Katon very well. He will do a great job legitimizing SC State if permitted to serve. I applaud him for running and am hopeful he will be elected.

There is such a positive “Stigma” if you can be seen as a freind of the black..

Remember when Sanford snuck that money in the pocket (stupidly we see now) of SC St. to pander, while striking down the monument to honor fallen officers, as WASTE…(why Jakie started hating him)…

It’s 2 Americas. Blacks are exalted no matter what they do. And Stupid Republicans like FITS and Dawson salivate to lick them, because they think it makes them look Big.

When in reality, if makes them look like carping cliches…Fact is: FITS, Sanford and Dawson do not know how to honestly relate to most people, including blacks…because they are fakes…

PS: Remember how FITS always “likes” Malloy, Benjamin, Sellers, Ford, Scott..etc…….no matter what they do..it’s the .same thing as Dawson,,,

Can’t get you a good avatar on this commenting system, huh, BigT? Too bad. So why don’t you grow some balls and register under your own name to spew your bullshit, and show us your face at the same time. No fair hiding it under the pointy-headed sheet now, son.

Boz: No doubt I intimidate people like you and FITS.
When I was a kid, I used to spend the night in the Projects with my firends who lived there.
I’ve grown up seeing @$$-Clowns like you, FITS and Katon Dawson trying to co-opt the freedom the poor have, to promote yourselves.
You people are Fakes and want the power of people who really don’t give a $#!*, like you claim about yourselves.
You are Lame and pathetic…and even more disgusting than the Racists you call er’body else who is not a Cliche like you…

Boz, you are a hot-air cliche. Your lack of ability to understand race relations and your level of (dis) honesty are like FITS and Dawson’s.
You are all three wannbes, but you don’t have the character, intelligence or integrity to be what you so covet…
And if you can be honest to yourself, you know I’m right.

Panderers like FITS, Dawson and Sanford are the reason the GOP is losing ground to complete FOOLS like Obama…
You’re as ignorant about race relations as you are about everything else…
When your whole life has been politics…you have no idea about real people, black or white…or real life…
It’s why FITS, Sanford, Dawson and Boz look so Stupid…all the while wanting so much to be some sort of perceived leader…

SC State has always had “financial troubles”. It is a drain on the taxpayers who keep bailing the school out. If it were not a “historically BLACK college”, the state would quit funding this historically mismanaged college and it would be shut down. There was once a need for it when U.S.C., Clemson, etc., did not admit blacks. But now there is no need for this college. There are plenty of other respectable colleges within driving distance.
