Only eight South Carolina counties observe Confederate Memorial Day, which was made a state holiday in 2000.
The holiday was started to honor the lives of those killed in the Civil War, which most historians say was fought by the South to uphold the institution of slavery. It's celebrated on May 10.
Lexington County Council Chairman Scott Whetstone says it's the only Midlands county to observe the holiday by shutting down government offices. He says the county does so because it follows the state's holiday schedule.
A survey of all 46 counties by the newspaper found that the other participating counties are: Allendale, Anderson, Cherokee, Colleton, Dillon, McCormick and Oconee. Of them, seven are predominantly white. Allendale County is the only one with a largely African American population.
No. The revisionists are complicit and are aiding in the destruction of our republic. We cannot negotiate at all with these slime and we cannot afford a cease-fire.
Ok, statue and monument issues aside.
People need a state-blessed “holiday”?
Is there a story amongst all that debris?
How long before Yankees shows up to drive this thread to 609-700 posts with their Leftist PC Revisionist crap?
Time for some Jethro Bodine ciphering.
There are 46 counties in South Carolina of which eight observe Confederate Memorial Day. That's 17% which is too low and they must stop immediately.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States of which Hillary Clinton won 487. That's 15.5% and she should be President for life.
Left-wing math is so cool!
Looks like we'll just leave the crap spreading to you.
You and your little group cornered the market on that a long time ago.
