Racial Drama On SC Social Media

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”…

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.

Anyway, to read our recent coverage of the anniversary of King’s speech, click here. And to read a thoroughly enlightened perspective from a young black leader in South Carolina (S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers), click here. Finally, to read an interesting race-related interplay between Sic Willie and this website’s liberal associate opinion editor, Amy Lazenby, click herethen here.

It’s all racial, right?

Sheesh …

If anything, rappers glorifying needless consumption, rampant drug use, etc. are promoters and beneficiaries of slavery. Why don’t we say bad things about them?

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have some great songs that don’t make it to radio to this regard, here they are:

I didn’t listen to the songs, I don’t like that kind of music, but I gave you an up vote for the point made. Another point I make is that for as bad as slavery was and as much as blacks hated it then, slavery didn’t end because of what blacks did. There were blacks that died fighting for the north but it was the whites that were fighting the war that won it for the north. It was the north’s taxes and buying war bonds that won the war. It was the north’s charities and bandage making housewives that won the war. All predominately white. Don’t whites get any credit for any of that? Nothing? Same with civil rights, blacks did a lot, they did a lot of the heavy lifting and suffering but there were whites murdered too. There were whites beat bloody and jailed and ultimately it was white votes that passed the Civil Rights Act, don’t whites get any credit for that? Nothing?

SMIRKS!!!! So glad you changed your profile pic! The one you had for so long just pissed me off every time I looked at it. I’ve always assumed you were some large white male that trolls FITS and plays video games!
Heck we could be friends in real life and not know it.

“I never enslaved anybody or discriminated against anybody”. Beware those NEVER statements. I would predict that most of us have “discriminated” against somebody, sometime, somewhere, somehow. It is not always “racial”. If I am approached by an UGA fan this Saturday asking if I have any tickets for sale, I will say no even if I have a pocket full of extras (which I don’t). I won’t sell to a red dog. Did I discriminate?

TBG notes that there is also a big “racial” kerfuffle on Facebook involving Wild Wing in North Chuck. It even made Drudge.

If all you can afford is a 99 Ford Explorer with duct tape on the side mirror, you need to join the strike line alongside the Fast Food Nation. I will be glad to sign a petition demanding that Howie upgrade your ride. He sure ain’t much of a sugar daddy if that’s the best he can provide for his Little Willie.
