Rules Are Racist......

Expecting to win a full majority is almost as racist as Voter ID .
And if you disagree, you’re racist too.

 Clyburn demonstrates the chances he will not play the race card
every time someone disagrees with the Democrats agenda
Bless his heart, U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn (Dumbass-SC) has the unfortunate affliction of speech. In a recent article in The State newspaper, the 73 year old, seven-term congressman claims there are “barriers” in South Carolina that prevent black candidates from winning statewide office:

"One of them, he said, is the state law that requires a candidate to win 50 percent plus one of the votes cast in a primary election. Often, that requirement forces black candidates into runoff elections that are harder to win, he said.
“That 50-percent-plus-one rule was put in in order to negate or minimize opportunity for African-Americans to win the primary,” he said. “It’s a very slick way to dilute the impact of the black vote.”
Clyburn said he wants S.C. law changed so a candidate only needs to get 40 percent of the vote when there are three or more candidates in a primary to win the nomination."
I would like an elaboration on Rep. Clyburn’s claim that “That 50-percent-plus-one rule was put in in order to negate or minimize opportunity for African-Americans to win the primary.” Since it applies to every candidate, the contention seems to be another Democrat yelling “RACIST!” for his own benefit.

The whine is particularly ironic coming from Jim Clyburn whose district was specifically gerrymandered – just prior to his first congressional election – for the purpose of creating a majority black electorate.
