Wherever racial divisiveness rears its ugly head, you can be sure DeRay Mckesson is not far away.
After “successful” stops in Ferguson, Mo., Baltimore, Md., and McKinney, Texas, the next destination on Mckesson’s itinerary was Charleston, S.C.

Few have bothered to dig into who’s financing his traveling road show, which last stopped on Roosevelt Island in New York, after the Hillary Clinton campaign invited him to attend last week’s relaunch, although the odds of George Soros’ name cropping up are high.
Mckesson wasted little time pushing his message of hate, condemning an atmosphere of forgiveness in Charleston as being a result of “whiteness,” even though family of the nine African-Americans killed were the first to speak of forgiveness.
But, according to the reaction on social media, it appears that South Carolina is not quite as receptive to his antics.
In fact, the push back against the race provocateur recently featured in The New York Times has been so pervasive, a #GoHomeDeRay hashtag is now trending.
Here’s sampling of responses from Twitter that suggests Mckesson and Co. are beginning to wear out their welcome, with God’s love triumphing over evil:
