You can expect just that type of racist attitude from ANY republican in South Carolina, especially from the lower part of South Carolina, especially Charleston. Don't get me wrong, now, there ARE some very good and wonderful white people in South Carolina (and in Chaleston) but it is usually this Andre Bauer type that usually hold political offices in the state, are on the police force, hold judges seats, etc., and Charleston has many poor whites to feed this b.s. to. South Carolina is a small state in the union, and usually, the smaller the state the less revenue it generates and with less revenue to work with you are going to have less money to spend on education. South Carolina is also a "right to work" state, which truly means that employees have no rights whatsoever and this leaves the employers in the position to dictate low wages and few benefits to its employees. Of course the majority of the state are poor whites who always vote away their rights and self-interests, and vote out of hatred for Blacks (and other minorities). Particularly, Charleston has an extremely large poor white population. Charleston is also at least 50% Black, but the Blacks in Charleston do not mobilize politically enough to help keep racist s.o.b.'s like Bauer out of politics.
Now don't go assuming that everyone in South Carolina is uneducated, unemployed, or poor, because actually some of the wealthiest Americans live in South Carolina and South Carolina has some very good Colleges and Universities and depending on the location, some very good k-12 schools. The problem is that racist politics dictate so much of what will or won't happen in South Carolina and the general population (which is more poor to middle class than rich) ususally suffer the consequences of electing racist so-called conservatives who get elected by playing on the racist mentalities in the state and using that as their stepping stone into and up the ladder in politics while doing nothing but continuously working against the very people that put them in office, you know they same way you see the republicans doing on the Federal level in politics.
But don't be fooled, Bauer meant every word ofwhat he said and was alluding to Black people and minorities in America, in fact if you research the history of most southern politicians, racism is the only thing that gets them elected in the first place. If it were not for their standing on a soap box spewing racism, you never would have heard of them.
However, I am extremely tired of racist white politicians using lies about Black people to move up politically and to poison the minds of everyone else against us. I think that they should be called on it each and every time the spew this ignorant, sadistic, sociopathic venom. When they make statements like that publicly, Black politicians should publicly rebuff such racist propaganda with facts and statistics that prove that what they are saying is a lie and/or what they are proposing is really going to hurt more white people than Black/minorities.
