Racial Drama On SC Social Media

Published

on

For those of you who don’t follow our founding editor’s social media pages (here, here and here), you should. Sic Willie (a.k.a. Will Folks) is always mixing it up on Facebook and Twitter. Like this morning – when he responded angrily to America’s liberal establishment going to the “white guilt” well one more time to mark the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Dream” speech.

Sic got the conversation started when he posted this tweet …

That missive apparently rubbed Democratic activist Hakeem Jefferson the wrong way.

“Even with that being true, you benefit from system that did enslave and discriminate,” he wrote.

“White males certainly benefit from the way history has shaped this country to this point,” another  Twitterer agreed.

Wait … WHAT?!?!

Needless to say, at that point it was on like Donkey Kong … with Sic even dropping a “n*gga, please” by way of responding to the assertion that he somehow benefitted from slavery.

Here’s another gem of a response …

Sic also mixed it up on Facebook, blasting S.C. Democratic operative Lachlan McIntosh for his post invoking former U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond’s 1957 filibuster of the Civil Rights Act.

” I know you guys are just reflexively running the white guilt playbook, but you really need to check the expiration date on that manufactured outrage,” he wrote.

It’s all racial, right?

Sheesh …
