Rural Black Candidate: Brothas Gotta Stick Together

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.

Hmmmm …

(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.

Winton at Florida State has ‘graduated’ from alleged rape to stealing crab legs from a Publix.

FITS’ outrage is ludicrous…Didn’t FITS say Voter Integrity Laws are meant to suppress minority vote…???

Gregory may take a differnent approach, but his ignorance is comparable to FITS…you just reach more Racists, like yourself…
We have a PROFOUND Race problem in this country, thanks to the democrat party controlling the debate, and F*#king it up, like yall do everything you touch…
And having FITS pontificate as an authority on race, is about a big a joke as the Rev. Gregory and Obama’s Rev. Wright…in the pulpit of a Christian church…

You’re a special kind of dumb shit, aren’t you?

Not according to you. You said that type of language was just divisive, not racist. What has changed? Of course the language you have chosen shows you to be the racist you are.

LMAO!! Go ‘viccupstate’! You actually made this lying ,race-baiting, now whiney fool, look like a human being.
Oh my!! Resent that, you sorry ass socialist.

Jay Ellington April 30, 2014 at 7:07 pm

Tom, you’re the best at conflating narratives to try and justify hurling that word “racist”, which has been rendered meaningless by hateful people like yourself. This simpleton from the low country is talking about resegregation. You support that Tom? I certainly don’t. Wasn’t it that dolt Melissa Perry Harris that champions the whole “it takes a village” idiocracy? This goon is saying he doesn’t want anyone but those of his race teaching their “own”. You’ve never seen anything close to that stuck back come out of my mouth, sir.

Tom May 1, 2014 at 12:39 pm

Perhaps I have misread all earlier rants about the definition of racist. As I recall you said to be a racist a person must believe people of another race are inferior. Noting this man has said indicates he thinks white people are inferior to black people. In fact its the opposite. He thinks white people are continuing to oppress black people and that black people need to band together to defend themselves.

As for segregation, of course I am not for that. Unlike those who support vouchers for private schools.

And maybe I am wrong about your earlier language being racist. It appears that way to me. It appears you think black people cannot speak properly. I would say it is because you think this man can’t speak properly, but you have never heard him speak; so I assume your assumption it that is the way all black people speak. Perhaps you should ask your many black friends if they find that offensive and let us know.

Jay Ellington May 1, 2014 at 3:23 pm

I think his efforts would be better asserted teaching “his own” how to more effectively assimilate with productive Americans or all races and how to move past this stuck back mentality that that the evil white devils are oppressing blacks. It’s 2014, there are more black business owners, black politicians, black doctors, black lawyers, etc than ever before, but that’s not good enough for hate mongers like the Reverend Gregory. He needs to further perpetuate the myth that “his race” is being obstructed from achieving success at the hands of whites, so that he can profit off of their misfortune. It’s nonsense, hurtful to his people and just plain counterproductive. These are not the type of people any community needs representing their best interests.

idiotwind April 30, 2014 at 2:37 pm

i dunno. he’s talking about jasper county schools, which is virtually a black institution, so he has a point. he did his time working in those god awful schools and the ‘assault’ charge was bogus – those kids are tough as shit to deal with. this doesn’t make him qualified for county council, but nothing he says here ain’t true. a little black pride would be a good thing in jasper cause the place boils with corruption. and what should he do, try to appeal to white voters?

seriously? May 1, 2014 at 7:36 am

Idiot wind, good point, and since the US is majority white – similarly speaking the next candidate of President should talk about ‘white pride’ and do we want ‘other races’ eg non-whites dictating our future et cetera. Sounds like a great idea!

Same ol' Same ol' April 30, 2014 at 2:40 pm

Interesting leading pic. Wonder where that fist has been… nah, don’t want to know.
Ok, so, you don’t want others of another race to guide you, then all whites/hispanics/whatever, just move out of the county. Let it go all black. Yeah, that’ll fix it.

Deo Vindice SC April 30, 2014 at 2:43 pm

If the dumb ass takes out a couple snippets (“black” and then the part “not let others of A DIFFERENT RACE raise….” it isn’t bad at all. Then again, the guy doesn’t look to bright or seem to be much of a role model – maybe he is BIG T!

SCBlueWoman April 30, 2014 at 2:59 pm

Too bright?

jurisdoc April 30, 2014 at 4:53 pm

sorry, i gots better thangs too does then korrect other folks grammer in the comments suction on Fits webslite.

Seriously, I should have said he appears to be as intelligent as LEE BRIGHT. That should clear it up.

Lew@Levi April 30, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Hard to argue with success. Blacks have controlled the county council, sheriff, clerk of court, treasure, tax assessor, school board. Also our representation in Columbia for many, many years. We have NOTHING but poverty and high crime to show for it.

Gregory was council chairman, lost his last election and voted for a 30% property tax increase on his way out the door along with the “black majority”. The “black majority” is no more, at least not until November when these uneducated, racist idiots put him right back in office.

Our only hope is that Gregory ends up indicted along with the rest of the school board.

Deo Vindice SC April 30, 2014 at 3:13 pm

The same is in Orangeburg, along with many houses for sale. Columbia’s not far behind.

Guest April 30, 2014 at 11:03 pm


Edgar April 30, 2014 at 6:22 pm

There will be no indictment of the school board. Bill Nettles and Jean Toal have decided that would not be good for the Democratic Party in South Carolina. Nettles has gotten the FBI to stand down and Toal promised every senator and representative from Allendale through Hampton, Jasper and Beaufort (including your sainted Tom Davis, Sic) to vote for her on the promise no one supporting the Democratic Party goes to jail down there.

Not true

Anonymous May 1, 2014 at 3:54 pm

Improbably, Jasper County is growing some because of spillover development from the Hilton Head area. It’s on track to grow by more than 20% this decade, and those new residents are predominantly white, thereby lowering the black percentage of the county’s population. Is that part of the subtext of this candidate’s rant?

TontoBubbaGoldstein April 30, 2014 at 3:59 pm

TBG believes that Mr Gregory should be fined $2.5 million and banned for life from Jasper County politics.

TBG will show his age here…..but he fondly remembers the 1980s, when titties and pro wrestling were real and a shot of penicillin would cure Clementa.

And the quote “brothas gotta stick together” came from where exactly?

TontoBubbaGoldstein April 30, 2014 at 6:17 pm

TBG thinks it was the same guy who said “Bros before hos.”

What the fuck, is every black man an ordained minister?

I bet he talks more about the white devil than he does about diversity… and there’s a dozen fat black women in white dresses screaming “Amen!!!” and a guy up front paging through a Bible muttering, “Yeah”, “That’s right”, “Amen brother” and rocking back and forth like Ray Charles.

He couldn’t get away with such talk if he were a (white) NBA owner.

….and here’s the second race baiting piece of the day from FITS.

I bet he’s probably got a 16 year old house girl he knocked up when he was younger and sent her off to California to raise their baby whom he never publicly acknowledged….oh wait….

Catwoman April 30, 2014 at 10:40 pm

I like that

Catwoman April 30, 2014 at 11:44 pm

Why is Gregory wearing a county council shirt. He looks like a fool and dumb as 10 boxes of rock

Fedupwjc May 1, 2014 at 4:11 pm

Because he served before on the county council and was voted out.
