Sen.Tim Scott responds to insulting slam by NAACP president

NAACP president Benjamin Jealous recently claimed that newly sworn-in U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC, the only black member of the U.S. Senate, doesn’t believe in civil rights.

He wasn’t the only person who reacted. The Twitterverse lit up at Thursday’s swearing in ceremony, with many offering their congratulations and well-wishes:

twitter-logoJosh Falzone: “Congrats to @SenatorTimScott on getting sworn in today! #tcot”

Kimberly Bookert: “@SenatorTimScott awesome, so proud of you. Represent for the republicans”

But the event also drew in his detractors:

Weezie: “@SenatorTimScott – now you will be in a position to do what your master, Jim DeMint tells you to. History repeating down on the plantation.”

Reynolds Repley, Jr.: “congrats Uncle tom scott O i meant tim scott. U don’t represent blacks and poor of SC u are white and republican so get 2 your master’s job”

Rachel Cantrell summed the hatred up best in her tweet: Racist comments coming from other black ppl re: @SenatorTimScott is disgusting. All of that simply bc he has different opinions? #tolerance

Scott appeared “On The Record” with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Thursday evening to answer his critics.
