I'm saddened that he will be carrying the name/description of being an "African American" Senator. In the same way that Clarence Thomas is considered an "African American" Supreme Court Justice.
It's another sad day for Black people.
That's all he is; another Clarence Thomas.
I can assure you that, in South Carolina, he has not risen up the political ranks in the republican party by doing anything other than what he's told, kissing White ass, stabbing his own people in the back and living in the fantasy world the Black conservatives/republicans create for themselves, of being seen as equals by White conservatives/republicans, and by possessing a White worship mentality that tells them that everything White is better, smarter, and should be bowed down to, and that everything Black is worse, unintelligent and should be rejected.
It is my honest opinion that Black houseniggers have did more to harm African Americans, Africans, the entire Black diaspora, than damn near all of the atrocities we have suffered as a group from White racists, in fact, many of the atrocities committed against Black people could not have ever occurred, had it not been for this mind-set within our own race in the first place. And, the stance, attitude and ignorant beliefs of many our most recent African immigrants to this country is all the proof you need to know that the housenigger mentality traces all the way back to Africa.
