Strom Got Jungle Fever
True to his southern roots, Strom Thurmond "split wood" by raping his 16 year old black maid and siring Essie Mae Washington-Williams and did the usual thing of sending her mony and occasionally making a visit to her on the college campus she attended. All of this was kept very much under wraps while Mr. Thurmond ran on a segregationist ticket. Ms. Williams-Washington also kept up her side of the "southern agreement" by saying nothing until the passing of her daddy. I do hope that the Thurmond estate is made to split any and all fortunes with Ms. Washington-Williams or whoever she deems worthy of. And to think that while Mr. Thurmond was prattling on about us Negroes, poor Emmit Till caught hell for supposedly whistling at a white woman.
