|Tranquil South Carolina before the 2015 flooding tears hit|
What's up with S.C.? As an African American, has it replaced Mississippi as the state I never want to be caught living in?
If you know American History, South Carolina was a major slave state with the black population outnumbering the white population at some point which is probably why white supremacy/racism abounds there - a means of power and control. Even though they've removed the 'ole Confederate Battle Flag from state grounds after Dylann Roof went into a black church bible study and murdered nine people, now comes the fact that cellphones have documented a black man being shot in the back and a 16-year old female student being violently removed from her desk.
Then there's the rain and flooding that continue to impact the state, making it a wasteland. It could be a beautiful place, but tears are falling there. May God have mercy on its residents.
