The liberal media today are reporting on an incident yesterday at CPAC 2013. K. Carl Smith, founder and President of Frederick Douglas Republicans, held a break-out session on minority outreach. During the question and answer period a young man identified as Scott Terry suggested that blacks should be grateful for the clothing, shelter and food provided by their slave masters.
Here is how Think Progress reported on the incident:
A panel at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Republican minority outreach exploded into controversy on Friday afternoon, after an audience member defended slavery as good for African-Americans.
The exchange occurred after an audience member from North Carolina, 30-year-old Scott Terry, asked whether Republicans could endorse races remaining separate but equal. After the presenter, K. Carl Smith of Frederick Douglass Republicans, answered by referencing a letter by Frederick Douglass forgiving his former master, the audience member said “For what? For feeding him and housing him?” Several people in the audience cheered and applauded Terry’s outburst.
After the exchange, Terry muttered under his breath, “why can’t we just have segregation?” noting the Constitution’s protections for freedom of association. Watch it:

Now here’s the rest of the story…
I spoke with K. Carl and his brother Karnie this morning at the Tea Party Patriot Live booth in the main hall.
K. Carl Smith said how he was so impressed with the CPAC audience who immediately came to his young man defense during thee breakout session. His brother Karnie also shared this,
“At the book signing after the session Scott Terry shared with me that he supported a type of Booker T. Washington Republican. We shared with him that Booker T was greatly influenced by Frederick Douglas. So much so that he wrote a biography about Frederick Douglas. Then Scott Terry responded by saying, ‘I didn’t know that. I could get into Frederick Douglas.’ And then he bought our book and I shook his hand and said thank you. So he left informed and inspired.”
And there’s the rest of the story.
Don’t expect the liberal media to report on this.
