Minority Outreach

Go Republicans!

TPM Election Central notes today that South Carolina Republican Party Chairman and recently declared candidate for RNC chairman, Katon Dawson, was formerly a member of a the 80-year-old whites-only Forest Lake country club.

In August, Dawson did indeed send a letter to the country club calling for it to open its doors to minorities. But Dawson, who had been a member for 12 years, only sent the letter after reports of the club’s racist membership rules appeared in the The State newspaper.

Somehow I doubt hosting a few more symposiums on urban vouchers is going to solve this sort of persistent image problem. We could go the direct route and kick all the racists out of the fucking party, but that’s crazy talk!
