South Carolina Rep Faces Calls to Resign Over Comments About White Constituents

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1958: U.S. Supreme Court orders the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas to integrate.

South Carolina state Rep. Krystle Matthews (D) is facing pressure to resign after an activist group released audio of Matthews making disparaging remarks about white people.

Matthews, who is also currently vying for a U.S. Senate seat against incumbent Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), made controversial comments about her constituents that were secretly recorded and released by activist group Project Veritas.

“You ought to know who you’re dealing with,” Matthews said in the recorded conversation. “You’ve got to treat [white people] like sh-t. That’s the only way they’ll respect you.”

Matthews can also be heard bragging about keeping her constituents “under her thumbs” and not tolerating “white sh-t.”

South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Drew McKissick called Matthews’ remarks “overly racist.”

“This is overtly racist. Point blank. Period. What happens when a white family in her district needs help? Does Matthews assist them, or does she treat them like crap,” McKissick asked. “The fact that question even has to be asked is more than enough to call for her to resign.”

Matthews told the Associated Press that the audio was edited from a “tongue-in-cheek” exchange that didn’t accurately reflect her sentiments. She dismissed Project Veritas as a “satirical MAGA-powered news outlet.”

However, even Democrats have called for Matthews to resign.

“If any of our white counterparts had said the same thing with regards to blacks, the minority community, including myself, would be up in arms calling for that member’s immediate resignation,” said state Rep. Justin Bamberg (D).

As of this reporting, Matthews says she has no plans to resign.

      TYPICAL……..SEEMS BLACKS OF LATE ARE JUST INTENT ON EITHER KILLING FAMILY OR ANYONE THAT STANDS IN THEIR WAY…….THEY ARE SLITTING THEIR OWN THROATS BY THEIR ACTIONS……..THEY CERTAINLY HAD MORE RESPECT FROM WHITES BEFORE 2008 THAN THEY HAVE NOW……THEY HAVE PROVEN THEY ARE TERRORISTS AND THEY CAN THANK THE BLM FOR THAT………

  2. Rat Wrangler says:

    Unless the majority of Ms. Matthews constituents are racist minorities, it is highly unlikely she will get enough votes in any campaign. It’s nearly impossible that any White people will vote for her, and improbable that any non-racist minorities will.

  3. Don says:

    The trash needs thrown out on her ear….just like the RINOs.

    1. VON says:

      AMEN DON………..

  4. Robert Waddell says:

    This is the attitude of African Americans from Obama to this person! It’s no secret that African American politicians are racist, it’s a double standard we have ignored from the days of Eric Holders gun running for the SLA! They don’t fool anyone, white people tolerate African Americans, most out of fear, others just pure human superiority!

    1. VON says:

      IN ADDITION, YOU CAN THANK BO FOR HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THAT FACT…….HE HAS HELPED THEM TO SLIT THEIR OWN THROATS WITH THEIR ACTIONS AND TERRORISM, JUST LIKE THE ILLEGAL ALIENS…….

  5. Duke Falcon says:

    Another Stooge who has the intelligence of a flushed turd.

  6. DAGFORDSHIRE says:

    And who’s the racist???????????

  7. John says:

    Certainly she should resign if not charged with fomenting racism. There is no excuse whatsoever for her comments, what if White people said this or a White congressman? The Democrats would call for immediate resignation no questions asked.
