Some of you young’ns won’t recognize the name Thurmond in the context of South Carolina. Those who know their history and have a political bent will know Exactly where that name hails from. Strom Thurmond served as senator from South Carolina until he was 100 years old. He was an avowed segregationist and pulled no punches on what he believed in with regards to race in this country. Noted for being one of the more famous “”Dixiecrats” known for his marathon filibuster against the Civil Rights Act in 1957 which lasted more than 24 hours. Listen to the man at work:
After the speech made by his son which was arguably a form of karma made manifest. You have to realize listening to the responses to the concept of removing the flag is not the true problem that this country at this time is beset with. It is the RACISM it always has been that is what is behind the functioning of this country. Now how to fix it…..that is the question.
Keep this in mind…
