Indianapolis Religious Radio Host on Tim Scott: ‘Black Only in Skin Color’

Tim Scott has been appointed to fill the South Carolina Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jim DeMint and immediately the racebaiters jumped in with both feet to attack him. One of the early hatemongers was Amos Brown, a host on a religious radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana. Brown resorted to his Twitter account to claim that African American Tim Scott isn’t really a black man.

It has been reported that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will appoint Tim Scott, an African American, to fill DeMint’s seat. Scott is, of course, a Republican just like Governor Haley. All one need be is a black man in the GOP and the hatemongers come out in force with their racist name calling and radio host Amos Brown rose early to the rote attack.

On his Twitter account (@Amoswtlcindy), Brown wrote, “Gee, courtesy of S Carolina GOP, the nation gets Tim Scott an ultra-rightwing, Tea Party devotee US Senator who’s Black only in skin color.”

Mr. Amos Brown calls himself a man of God and works for AM 1310, “The Light,” a religious station that caters to the African American community in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Brown has a grandiose description of himself on his Twitter account: “Radio Host,Media Mgr,Columnist,Servant/Leader,Demographer, Chronicler of Indy’s communities, Grandfather, Institutional Memory.”

South Carolina’s Tim Scott is himself quite an interesting man. Not only did he beat Strom Thurmond’ son in a South Carolina primary for Congress in 2010, but now he’s about to ascend to the famous segregationist’s own Senate seat!

In fact, this particular South Carolina Senate seat is a case study in the positive progression of the United States in race relations and equal rights. Thurmond was a famous Southern Democrat segregationist who once ran for president on a racist platform. He then renounced his racist ways and became one of the few racist Democrat “Dixiecrats” to switch to the Republican Party. And now an African American is joining the U.S. Senate in the same seat Thurmond once held. That is quite a progression toward the colorless nation that Martin Luther King had hoped for, isn’t it?

Sadly we still have to overcome the segregationist impulses of racebaiters such as Amos Brown.

    Interesting that you would choose to race bait yourself, and jump all over Brown for his comments just because he’s black – but while you’ve done an excellent job of documenting what Brown said – but you’ve failed miserably in showing Brown is wrong.

    Can you show us that Tim Scott has a decent record on civil rights and black issues?

    Or is Brown correct in that Scott is “black in skin color only”? You’ve haven’t shown us that he’s wrong in that assertion.

      If you are asserting, as you seem to be, that race predetermines behavior or attitude:

      then you, sirrah, are a particularly vile and loathsome racist.

      Why do you segregate blacks from the rest of America? Why do you keep them on the plantation of “black issue”? Why do you think blacks aren’t part of America at large? Why do you think blacks don’t deserve to be considered just people?

      • Carl

        Here’s a balanced look at Scott’s record. Since you couldn’t ignore Amos Brown’s race I suspect you will find fault with this report – but I encourage you to read it. It’s a good example of reporting that ignores skin color – something you obviously need help with.

          Warner did not overly emphasize Amos Brown’s race. In fact, the only indication (and it is very, very weak) made about Brown’s race is the fact that he works for a radio station that caters to African-Americans.

    • retired.military

      I thought that we were supposed to judge folks by the content of their character and not what they espouse on “black issues” or “white issues” or “purple issues”

      If something is truly good than isnt it good for everyone?

      Your own statement contradicts your racist reality.

      This is racism pure and simple. It is racist to assume that skin color requires specific viewpoints. Brown is racist for claiming that black people must have views he approves of, Carl defends his racism.

    • Phil Snyder

      Carl – what does it mean to be black? Isn’t it simply a concentration of melanin? Or is their some test to be black? Is it an attitude and lifestyle?

      The only way to be “black” is to be “black in skin color only.” Anything else is a racist statement.

      I would have said the same thing if anyone else had said that Scott was “black in skin color only.” It doesn’t matter what idiot is questioning Scott’s “blackness.” To question “blackness” because of political ideology is to require blacks to live on a certain political plantation. It is the Democratic (sic) Party that believes that blacks need to have specific political ideology in order to be “truly black.” They are the ones with the plantation mentality, not the GOP and certainly not the Tea Party.

    Looks like Brown’s employer is starting to enact some damage control. They’ve hidden public comments from their Facebook page, but you can possibly still comment, though it’s currently acting weird.

    On a side note, their page’s “likes” includes Skittles. Gee, I wonder what that’s in reference to…

  • superdestroyer

    Once again, evidence that anyone who claims that Republicans or conservatives can effectively reach out to blacks is a fool. Black culture in the U.S. is the most liberal culture in the U.S. and any resources that Republicans/conservatives use to appeal to blacks are wasted.

    • jim_m

      People’s political views are not dictated by their skin color. To claim so is racist. There are issues where the black community and conservatives actually have significant agreement. The reason the left gets so outraged when a black conservative shows up is because they are mortally afraid that blacks may figure that out on a large scale.

      For instance blacks generally do believe in school choice. The left is adamantly against it. Blacks also provided a significant margin for Prop 8 in California. People do not hold to their stereotypes. Only the left are racist enough to demand that blacks do so.

      • superdestroyer

        The Congressional Black Caucus is against school choice. Every black mayor of an urban city is against school choice. Blacks see the public schools as a job programs instead of places for academic learning. School choice is the last thing that most blacks want.

        Blacks only resent homosexuals because they are ahead of blacks in the political correctness pecking order. Blacks are the most liberal group in the U.S. and will hate any blacks who is not a supporter of big government, high taxes on whites, and a wide range of entitlements.

        • jim_m

          So your counter to my comment that some black people are in favor of school choice is to point out the blindingly obvious fact that black democrats are against it. Wow. That was really deep.

          Then you demonstrate your bigoted world view with your comment on gays and blacks.

          • superdestroyer

            Over 95% of blacks are Democrats. Blacks have never voted for any politicians who promised more academic schools that would be good for the best students. Blacks vote for politicians like Marion Barry who promise more no show jobs at the schools.

            Conservatives need to understand that blacks will never vote for them and that blacks are the most liberal demographic group in the U.S. The reason the radio personability fel tcomfortable insulting a black Republicans is that virtually all blacks are very liberal Democrats. There is nothing racist about accepting that blacks are very liberal Democrats and that it is a waste of time for white conservatives to appeal to them.

          • jim_m

            No. You are arguing that blacks are incapable of being conservative. You are arguing that blacks are not persuadable and that their political ideas are determined by their skin color. Back in MLK Jr’s day a lot of blacks voted with the GOP. After reconstruction almost all of them did.

            The typical lefty-ingorant view of the world is that nothing ever changes. The truth is that if you weren’t so scared that blacks might shift to the GOP you would not come out with the vile racist abuse toward black conservatives. According to you there is not reason for it because blacks will never/can never be conservative. So all your racism is proof that deep down you are afraid that they might change their minds so you have to male it so scary that they are afraid to even look at an alternative to the party that keeps them poor and ignorant.

            The dems just moved from one form of slavery to another. And you, sir, endorse it.

          • superdestroyer

            I am arguing that black culture is about as far away from conservative politics that one can get in the U.S. Black culture is the opposite of conservative. The idea that conservatives can ever appeal to a demographic group where 70% plus of the children are born to single women and more than 75% support race based reparations is idiotic.

            All conservatives and Republicans can do is limit the damage that is done by black voters and push for government policies that limit the influence of black voters on everyone else.

            It almost looks like you’re arguing that they’re intentionally self-destructive.

            “Blacks vote for politicians like Marion Barry who promise more no show jobs at the schools.”

            And that they can never be otherwise.

            And you don’t see yourself as racist?

  • Dale Dawson

    So, let me get this right Mr. Brown, man of God. Any black who disagrees with you and holds differing views, is no longer black? Rather narrow minded, don’t you think? Come to think of it, you sure sound a lot like the black man in the White House, our President.

    According to Huston Brown is “one of the early hate mongers…”

    Simple question Huston. Who are the other “one(s)”?

    • jim_m

      I’m sure they will self identify as they call Scott a token, an Uncle Tom, a race traitor, inauthentically black, and other racist taunts.

      Here are some already.

      • Hugh_G

        Wow. 6 people. Well that proves a point doesn’t it?

        Kinda like those 5-10 folks you see in Tea Party photos with racist signs. Which, of course, says nothing about you paranoid fucks.

        • jim_m

          Hey, I made no claims about numbers. But then you’ve got friends like Superdestroyer making bigoted comments so I would suggest that you police your own. Deny all you want, but there is a very hateful, racist streak in the left for any minority that comes out as a conservative.

          As for the TEA Party, most of the racists at those events have been the lefty trolls and they have been obvious in their acts. I have never seen any racism at a TEA Party event and they have been quite diverse. There is more racism from your union friends than from the TEA Party.

          • Hugh_G

            This just goes to show how dense you are. But before I get to that if you believe the drivel that the racist signs were mostly from lefty trolls you truly are beyond help.

            But my point was that a few racist signs at a Tea Part event doesn’t mean that all Tea Party folks are racist or even a majority. But you paranoid fucks think liberals believe you’re all rascists which proves how fucking stupid you can be.

            I can’t leave without a comment about Huston. This was his typical Breitbartian piece of lying hateful garbage, ie.lets pick one jackass from the left and make it a generalization.

            This guy actually earns a living writing this crap.

          • jim_m

            First claiming that the TEA Party fosters racism is a disgusting and cowardly bit of racist projection from the left.

            Second it isn’t just obscure lefties making these racist attacks on Tim Scott. It’s the NYT.

            Take race out of it. Would anyone from the left be saying a word about a GOP governor appointing a GOP senator to fill a vacancy? NOPE. But you appoint a black conservative and the left erupts like a bunch of scalded cats. There’s only one reason why.

            [edit] I mean, look at the NYT editorial board. Who are they to accuse anyone of tokenism? Although I suppose the fact is that they don’t participate in tokenism when it comes to blacks. There simply isn’t a single black on the board. Like the SPLC they simply do not respect blacks enough to consider them an equal or give them a position of responsibility. Lefty charges of racism against conservatives would be a lot more effective if those making the accusations weren’t such closet racists themselves.

      Adolph Reed from the U Penn school of Political Science accuses the GOP of racism for nominating Scott. In his editorial where he seems to have difficulty seeing beyond the race of an politician he mentions he finds it difficult to accept e legitimacy of any black not elected from a black district. He exemplifies the racist left wing view that a person is not authentically black if they do not toe the left wing line.

      Like Rob Parker who was suspended from ESPN for accusing RGIII of being insufficiently “down with the cause” and a “cornball brother” because e had a white girlfriend and wanted to be known as a good quarterback instead of being a black quarterback.

      The left can’t see past race in anything. It’s sad. Adolph should take a look at his friends at U Penn, where only 1 of the 31 faculty in his department is black. Who is picking the tokens in your institution Adolph?

      As others have said, expecting that all blacks think the same is like expecting that all Adolphs think the same.

  • Jack Zimms

    Typical liberal. They claim conservative stereotype blacks
    and therefore are racist. However, they are the ones insisting blacks must fall
    under a stereotype or else they are not truly black.
