"Do we want a society that breeds success, or a culture that cancels everything it even slightly disagrees with?
After starting my business and spending time in local government, I ran for Congress in 2010. The district is based in Charleston, South Carolina...where the Civil War started...against a son of our legendary Senator, Strom Thurmond.
You may be asking yourself how does a poor black kid...from a single parent household...run and win a race in a crowded Republican primary against a Thurmond?
Because of the evolution of the heart, in an overwhelmingly white district... the voters judged me on the content of my character, not the color of my skin.
We live in a world that only wants you to believe in the bad news... racially, economically and culturally-polarizing news.
The truth is, our nation's arc always bends back towards fairness."
