South Carolina--Yeah!

Check out this story about South Carolina's attempts to attract international tourists. I know that if I were a German, I would love to spend my vacation in South Carolina. I thought I'd give that glorious state a few suggestions on attractive tourist sites:

Guided tours of Bob Jones University. Come and see the Christian center of America! Be told how bad you are! And by the way, check out the white people on the website. I mean, they are white! If you click on the site often enough, you can even see the school's one black student.

What about the Pitchfork Ben Tillman home? Show the world South Carolina's long historical tradition of tolerance! Such as this Tillman speech from 1900:

"We did not disfranchise the negroes until 1895. Then we had a constitutional convention convened which took the matter up calmly, deliberately, and avowedly with the purpose of disfranchising as many of them as we could under the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments. We adopted the educational qualification as the only means left to us, and the negro is as contented and as prosperous and as well protected in South Carolina to-day as in any State of the Union south of the Potomac. He is not meddling with politics, for he found that the more he meddled with them the worse off he got. As to his “rights”—I will not discuss them now. We of the South have never recognized the right of the negro to govern white men, and we never will. We have never believed him to be equal to the white man, and we will not submit to his gratifying his lust on our wives and daughters without lynching him. I would to God the last one of them was in Africa and that none of them had ever been brought to our shores. But I will not pursue the subject further."

And we can pair that with a visit to the home of Strom Thurmond! We can hear about how ol' Strom did so much for the whites of America. And see salacious diary entries about how much he loved fucking his little black wench. Man, is it fun being white!!!

If these sites are all successful, maybe our friends from South Carolina can develop a driving tour of lynching sites around the state. It could be the "Protection of White Womanhood State Driving Tour." No doubt each road sign would have a noose, or perhaps a pair of castrated black testacles.
