This is quite an ambivalent thing here and I'm not sure how to feel about it.
Yet again, it's really really awkward that Tim Scott is like the only Black conservative that has to come out and explain that Democrats are the racists and when I look at the GOP, there's 1 black senator and 2 black representatives in the House. If I were him, I'd feel really really really weird about being the Black guy who "debunks" claims of racism. If I were in his situation I'd think about if my platform has a representation of African Americans that is 10th of what is expected (3 vs around 33 based on demographics), that happens for a reason. I'd also think about how friggin awkward it is to be THE main debunker of myths, when if there weren't major issues, there would be other people who could take a turn debunking these very myths.
