Snitch of the Week: 2/18 - 2/24 (Sharpton and Thurmond)

(Without words, for once.)

Austin Fenner from the Daily News who proved Al Sharpton to be Storm Thurmond's slave is clearly the Snitch of the Week. Who would want to have been Strom Thurmond's slave and then have that news get out. I mean damn.

(Original Daily News article here.)

The funniest shit from this whole story, as always, are the quotes of the naively racist white people involved.

From the article,

  • Some of Thurmond's relatives said the nexus also came as a surprise to them. Doris Strom Costner, a distant cousin who said she knew the late senator all her life, said Sunday she "never heard of such a thing."

    "My momma never would talk to me about nothing like that," Costner said of ancestors who owned slaves. "She only talked to me about good things."

Momma never talked about bad things...
Like how Cousin Strom probably raped the black housekeeper, got her pregnant, and then paid her to shut up and disappear with the kid, while being an ignorant segregationist bigot his whole life?

I wonder what else people in the south don't talk about...

Austin Fenner, for dropping this genealogical bomb, you are the Snitch of the Week.
