“No Ni**er Mayor” Denotes Racial Tensions In S.C. Mayoral Race

 

Tensions are flaring in South Carolina’s political scene.

Merely three months away from heading to the polls to choose a new mayor, citizens of Columbia, South Carolina were doused with the harsh realities of a south embroiled in a war with itself over impending cultural changes, made clear with a blunt message left on the outside of City Hall.

“No Ni##er Mayor, Die” was spray-painted in red lettering on the side of Columbia’s City Hall during the early morning hours, clearly taking aim at two mayoral hopefuls, Steve Benjamin and Army Lt. Col. Gary Myers.

“[This situation is]exactly why we need a new leader who can unify all of us behind a new vision for Columbia,” said Benjamin to local media. “And I am now, more than ever, dedicated to that cause.”

There are currently seven candidates for the April election.

Local law dictates that city vandalism is punishable by a $500 fine and 30 days in jail.
