FORMER LAWMAKER, REALITY TV STAR LANDS GIG WITH CNN …

|| By FITSNEWS || We don’t always (or even often) agree with his views but there’s no denying former S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers – son of former civil rights leader Cleveland Sellers – is one of the smartest, savviest young politicos in the Palmetto State.  That’s why it didn’t surprise us in the least to learn the up-and-coming attorney – who at the ripe old age of thirty has already served four terms in the S.C. House of Representatives – recently landed a gig with CNN as a commentator on racial, political and legal issues.

“I think it’s pretty cool that a kid from Denmark, South Carolina, and a graduate of the South Carolina public school system gets to share his opinions and views with the world on CNN,” Sellers told The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier.  “It continues to give me a voice on all issues that not just affect South Carolina, but affect the country.”

Sellers – an attorney at the Columbia, S.C.-based Strom Law Firm – is no stranger to television.  He’s also recently appeared on the WE TV reality show “Love Thy Sister,” which stars a trio of young professional black women who hail from Lancaster, S.C.

We look forward to seeing what Sellers brings to the table … especially as the national media focuses its attention on the Palmetto State’s “First in the South” presidential primary election.

“Kid from Denmark” and “graduate of the South Carolina public school system”… good Lord. SMH. Yes, those are facts but he’s also led a life of privilege that few South Carolinians, black or white, could dream about. It pays to have a famous, well to do father.

There is no white privilege, only class privilege. It’s call self accountability for the rest of us.

I liked Bakari. He came across very well in his run for Lt. Governor. Too bad he didn’t win imo.

So you are a fan of race-based hatred and bigotry? Because that is what Sellers perpetuates.

I used to work on his cars, he is very likeable, but lost me with his view on the ” stay your ground law “.

Like the guy, I really do. But I’m just not sure he’s going to bring anything new to the table on CNN talking about “racial, political and legal issues”. I hope I’m wrong, but I just don’t want more of the same nonsense we get already from the likes of Marc Lamont Hill and his ilk.

“Larry Elder” less 33 years and some philosophical grounding.

The positive is that he won’t go on TV pretending to be a libertarian, centrist, etc.

‘Confederate flag underwear’ — Walmart has sold out, but you can find them at any Dollar General store that is at least 15 miles from an interstate (just ask for them…they’re kept in the back store room).

Too bad he doesn’t know how to practice law. He can smile and provide comment though. Cha-ching!
