Better minstrelsy, please

Like all right-thinking (left-thinking?) people, I am shocked—shocked!—that the National Federation of Republican Women, at their Board of Directors’ meeting in South Carolina, would show off people dressed like this. I mean… I mean… the event where these pictures were taken was advertised as “A Southern Experience”, and the president of the SC state Senate (the guy in the Confederate general’s uniform) praised “the historical accuracy of the performers”, but that guy with the straw hat isn’t holding the washboard correctly!
