Face it. Tomorrow, South Carolina will elect Tim Scott, the first Republican African American senator from the south since the Reconstruction.

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu recently said, “I’ll be very, very honest with you. The south has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”

Rep. James Clyburn agreed with Landrieu in a recent interview with MSNBC.

But Rep. James Clyburn and Sen. Landrieu will never cite the progress the south is making regarding race.

For them, Scott’s election isn’t something to be lauded. It should be questioned and slammed because, unlike Pres. Obama, Scott is a black conservative.

“If you call progress electing a person with the pigmentation that he has, who votes against the interest and aspirations of 95% of the black people in South Carolina, then I guess that’s progress,” said Rep. Clyburn.

So according to Clyburn, since Scott is the color he is, he should align with certain preconceptions, like blacks always vote Democrat and for big government.

North Carolina’s NAACP President Rev. William Barber even resorted to name calling.

“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said of Scott.

The south, and the face of conservatives, is changing, and people like Clyburn, Barber and Landrieu can’t, or won’t, accept that. They both choose to dwell in the past and marginize Scott’s pending victory.

Clyburn continues to hold the South back with his narrow-minded statements. Yes, there is still racism in the South, but the new south is becoming more tolerant. Both white, black and latinos will vote for Tim Scott because they like his message of economic freedom and traditional values.

The mainstream media, however, won’t report on the south’s progress because it doesn’t fit their narrative.

Appearing on MSNBC, Clyburn said that Southerners will never accept President Barack Obama because of his skin color.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall, Clyburn said no matter what President Barack Obama does, “a lot of people” won’t accept him “because of his skin color.”

“For anybody to say there’s nothing that is racial about some of the animus being expressed by President Obama, you’re not telling the truth,” said Clyburn. “We know with a lot of people, I don’t care what he does. He’s not going to be acceptable because of his skin color.”

Granted there are probably some who don’t like Obama due to his skin color, but tomorrow, the people voting for Scott, regardless of their skin color, are doing so because they agree with him ideologically.
