The Rising Tide is an event founded by blogger Mark Moseley, who publishes Your Right Hand Thief blog.
Word to the wise.
If you are in the world of politics, don’t use the word slave, plantation and surely not the N-word.
One would have thought that Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy would have learned from his prior mistake. Apparently not.
