Congressman Jim Clyburn: Blessed Experiences


By Rochelle Dean


Congressman Jim Clyburn was born under Jim Crow laws giving him an eye opening look at the world at a very young age. Still, Clyburn tells us it's those experiences that made him the man he is today.

One of the reasons for the title of his new book, Blessed Experiences; Genuinely Southern, Proudly Black. More than a hundred people attended his book signing at USC's Hollings library Monday night leaving standing room only.

The Memoir was 30 years in the making. Clyburn says it details some of the biggest controversial moments of his personal and political life here in South Carolina.

All of the proceeds from the book will go toward the James A. Clyburn Research and Scholarship Foundation to help young people achieve dreams of higher education.

This comment is for "hootie" and "jewdin"...and whoever is to follow with such ignorance. For you to reference O'Reilly in the same breath as Cong. Clyburn shows that you are just as ignorant, and possibly as illiterate as jewdin! Bigotry and ignorance is the least of O'Reilly's issues. And Jewdin, please tell how Clyburn is an Uncle Tom. Oh, you might be ignorant as to what an Uncle Tom is. He is just the opposite! Clyburn has championed issues that have benefited you both in ways that you don't even realize, hence again, the true definition of ignorance! No matter your race, he has done more to yield significant results for this state. 1. DO your OWN research! 2. STOP listening to lies on TV and treating them as gospel without confirming! 3. THINK for yourself, don't allow TV personalities to highjack your brain and guide your principles. You will be a happier and a more intelligent person!!!!

Clyburn is one of the biggest Uncle Toms in the U.S. Congress and one of the most illiterate.
