COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA — University of South Carolina student, Byron Thomas, a proud defender of the Confederate flag and “that one black friend” to racists everywhere, has now been invited to join the KKK.
A self-described Republican, Christ-following, Southern gentleman, Thomas is loud and proud in his love for the Confederate flag. As well as being a prolific social media user and giving number of interviews, including one with CNN, Thomas has also written a Washington Post editorial defending the flag.
Thomas says he supports the flag because it stands for his state and celebrates his his black ancestor’s role as a cook in the Confederate army.
Thomas, as South Carolina native, and all around flag fanatic, has said he hoped that people would recognize the flag as a symbol of his state’s storied history. Like the time they started the Civil War. Or the whole slavery thing.
