Glenn McConnell and slaves

The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) recently held its annual fall Board of Directors meeting in Charleston, S.C. last weekend, dubbed “The Southern Experience”. The BVX.com reports that controversial pictures of S.C. Senate President Glenn McConnel have surfaced online, with the South Carolina leader dressed as a confederate soldier posing with Black people dressed as slaves.

Unfortunately, many southerners embrace the Confederate south as a foundation of their heritage, while many others wish to forget the era which was driven by racism, bigotry, and legislation which enslaved African-Americans.

The attendees may have found this humorous, but many viewers do not find this event comical at all.

Perhaps they didn’t get the memo that being dressed up as slaves and taking pictures with a Confederate soldier isn’t cool.
