Bakari Sellers: Henry McMaster Should Resign From “Whites Only” Club

LAWMAKER CHALLENGES RIVAL TO STAND UP TO “OLD GHOSTS”

S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers – a centrist Democrat from Bamberg, S.C. and the son of a civil rights leader – called on his “Republican” opponent for lieutenant governor to resign his membership in a “whites only” country club.

“I’m asking Henry McMaster to join me in standing up against those old ghosts and for a new South Carolina and for all future generations by permanently resigning his membership to the Forest Lake Country Club, which in 2014 continues to accept no African-American members,” Sellers said at a press conference.

McMaster’s membership at the Forest Lake Country Club was first exposed by FITS back in 2008 – along with his membership in other “whites only” organizations.

The club gained national infamy in 2009 when then-SCGOP chairman Katon Dawson – who followed McMaster as head of the state party – pulled a rope-a-dope related to his membership.

Dawson – then a candidate for chairman of the Republican National Committee – publicly “resigned” his membership at the club in protest of its policy toward blacks.  However it was later revealed he never left.

The club refuses to release its members’ names, but here is a screenshot from a recent directory listing McMaster as a member …

The club’s by-laws don’t technically exclude black members, however a deed its property prohibits membership by “negroes.”

Other prominent political members include S.C. Senator John Courson and Carroll A. “Tumpy” Campbell, son of the late Gov. Carroll Campbell.

Forest Lake Country Club attracted extensive national attention years ago after it refused to issue a complimentary membership to Robert Solomon, then the commanding office at Fort Jackson, on the basis of Solomon’s Jewish faith.

Since then, the club has allowed Jewish members to join – but not blacks.

“South Carolina is watching Mr. Master, the nation is watching South Carolina, and most importantly, our children are watching us all,” Sellers said.

McMaster – a member at the club since 1979 – did not immediately respond to Sellers’ challenge.

Now hold on, I say hold on there Bakari. We’ll let you in. Just put on one of those penguin suits and help with he drinks and everything will be alright.

By the way, we have white women there too!

What is so horrible about the idea of a group that only consists of white people? I know this issue has been covered to death in the media over the years, but seriously, what? Are white people so terrible that we need minorities to supervise us and ensure we are not getting out of hand? When a Jewish guy was elected to congress from a majority black district in Tennessee, he tried to join the Congressional Black Caucus but was told no, that’s a blacks only organization. Does Bakari Sellers have a problem with that? I would guess not, because there is nothing inherently wrong with a group consisting only of people of one race.

That is the stupidest thing I have read for a while. The Congressional Black Caucus, as its name indicates, is for black Congressmen. The Forest Lake Country Club is not called the Forest Lake White Country Club, therefore if a black family wished to join then why are there no black members? Don’t fabricate a phony discrimination scenario to justify reactionary Jim Crow behavior by some of our local white elitists.

So as long as the club explicitly said it was a whites only organization in its bylaws, you would be cool with that?

UncleCracker September 4, 2014 at 1:09 pm

I’m going out on a limb here, guessing that a Congressional White Caucus wouldn’t sit very well with black members of congress. Why can’t the Congressional Black Caucus just settle with one big organization called the Congressional Caucus. Alternatively, why shouldn’t a white person be allowed to join the Congressional Black Caucus? Double standards allow for such discrimination.

There are plenty of tokens around so if push comes to shove they will admit one. Then what will you say? There is only one black member in the formerly all white club. Then they will need to get a queer, a lesbian, a Transy, check the list for all the religions, oh boy, now we need an atheist. Shit, are all the political parties represented?

Then one day some old dude walks into this politically correct orgy of righteousness and screams out “Holy fuck, what happened to golf and Goddamned T-bone steaks?”

What does this have to do with McMaster’s ability to serve as Lt. Governor?

Sellers can’t stick to the issues so he has go drop down to personal mudslinging.

It is fine if you don’t support McMaster’s political views but his membership at Forest Lake has nothing to do with his ability to perform the job.

Do the white whiners complain that the Polish-American Clubs admit just Poles (and relatives and dates), the old German-American Clubs ditto (analogously), the Knights of Columbus only Roman Catholic men, and so on? Nope. Only for black organizations. (OK, sometimes they whine about woman’s organizations and such. They are notorious whiners.)

Let the (Nathan Bedford) Forrest Lake Club label itself openly and honestly as the Forest Lake White Gentiles Petit-Bourgeoisie Club and most of the opposite complaining should dry up.

According to NBC’s Peter King and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, NFL officials called teams around the league to gauge interest in signing Michael Sam to their practice squad.

Yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys signed Sam, who is trying to become the first openly gay player in NFL history.

King reported this during the pre-game show on NBC prior to the Seahawks/Packers season opener Thursday night.

“The Rams waived Michael Sam, the first openly gay player trying to make an NFL roster, he was unemployed for two days,” King said. “During that time a league official contacted multiple teams asking if they had evaluated Sam as a probable practice squad player.”

“Now Sam and the NFL avoided a nightmare situation when he signed with the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys.”

Forest Lake Country Club is used for Clubhouse adjudication instead of Courthouse adjudication. When federal judges like Bristow Marchant can remain a member and through imputed relationships of other members settle your case without it going to court as the law mandates the Club is a White Supremacy Club that has tacit endorsement from the federal government. William Traxler the 4th Circuit Chief Justice seems to agree that the club is wrong, but he still indorses is existence and protects it in his decisions. Wells Fargo’s attorney who through tacit endorsement belongs to the very same organization stated in a deposition “that Wells Fargo Loves to Hate Niggers and Hate to Love Nigggers” and Judge Marchant’s actions says thats A OK. US District Case in South Carolina Charleston Div. 2:11-cv-0484 and then he proceeds to protect them.
