Slavery Applauded At CPAC

As Think Progress reports, yesterday an audience member at a panel discussion called "Trump The Race Card" at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) poo fest rose up to defend slavery and segregation.  The bigot, Scott "Inbred" Terry of North Carolina, claimed that African-Americans had their basic needs met while enslaved:
“Blacks should be happy that the slave master gave them shelter, clothing, and food.”
Several audience members applauded his statement.  Session moderator,  Stepin Fetchit impersonator K. Carl Smith from a group calling themselves Hankerchief Heads Frederick Douglass Republicans, called the racial invective "racially insensitive" -- which would be like calling terminal cancer a mild illness -- but said that at the end of the panel discussion he explained the "message" of the Frederick Douglass Republicans to the bigot and that they parted "as friends."  We wonder what that message is, since it apparently appeals to white racists.  Maybe the two can get together for toasting marshmallows at the next cross burning.
