Apropos

Remember Katon Dawson, the RNC chair candidate who belonged to a segregated country club? He lost to Steele for obvious reasons. With his RNC run behind him, Dawson is back to life. You know golfing, tennis, lunching...at the same segregated country club.

Now, in Dawson's defense...

There is no written prohibition against black members in the Club's by-laws, however the deed to the property on which it is located expressly forbids their membership.

This tends to be a problem for segregated country clubs. Their members tend to be good people. But their deeds are often racist. No way to control that...
