History, cracker-style

What century are we in? This is out of Columbia, SC — a high school teacher with a very interesting retro perspective on race. And by the way, these utterings were captured on video. (WLTX):

“These sorts of things are going to upset people, but the truth can be very upsetting,” said Brookland-Cayce High School teacher Winston McCuen.

That truth, at least according to McCuen, is that black people are inferior to whites.

“Intellectually, yes they are,” said McCuen. “This has been confirmed over and over, and this is a generalization. Again, there are some blacks who are more intelligent than individual whites. But as a rule, that is true. I-Q tests prove it over, and over and over.”

News19’s J.R. Berry asked McCuen, “Do you think slavery in America was a good thing? “Yes,” said McCuen. “In America there was a rational assessment saying listen, if we give these people freedom right as they are and you have to go back to see how they were, you can’t assume they were like us.

J.R. asked, “How were they?” “They were coming out of the jungles,” said McCuen. “They had been enslaving each other for centuries in Africa, and in terms of being used to rule of law, they knew none of that.”

And to think, Tony Snow said racism is rapidly becoming an ugly memory.
