I have been hearing a lot about the "almost RNC Candidate" Katon Dawson and his 12 year membership in a 'whites-only' country club in South Carolina.
I was under the impression such clubs did not exist anymore..or.. at least... had removed language from their charters.
I found the name of the club from this TPM Article and decided to give them a call.
Me: "Hi.. I am calling to ask if you allow blacks as members at your country club?"
Guy: Silence...."Ummm.. that can't be a real question"
Me: "Well.. the press is reporting that you don't so I am just looking to find out for myself."
Guy: "Absolutely we do. Why wouldn't we?"
So... someone needs to do some digging.
Did I get the wrong Country Club?
Are they lying?
Does someone have outdated information?
I would love to find a country club that didn't allow blacks.. I would make a point of calling them every day and ask them the same question " Hi.. do you discriminate against people of color?" ... make them answer.. out loud.. every day.
What say you? Anyone have any information?
