Rep. James E. Clyburn is about that ‘thug’ life!
The Democrat from South Carolina ‘showed up and showed out‘ at a rally in support of Trayvon Martin today in Columbia, South Carolina. According to eye-witness reports, Rep. Clyburn spoke to a crowd on the steps of the South Carolina State House with his ‘hoodie up‘ while demanding an end to racial profiling.
Here’s an excerpt of what he had to say:
“We’re very disappointed in the verdict, and more disappointed in some of the reactions we’ve read from some of the jurors. It just seems as if something about this entire process is just disconcerting to us.
So we are looking at the verdict as well as other thing surrounding it, and trying to figure out whether or not this whole so-called Stand Your Ground legislation or law can be dealt with in such a way to prevent this kind of the thing from happening. And we hope that we can.” – Rep. Clyburn
