They've reported on mural at Robert Smalls Middle School takes direct aim at capitalism, with the quote "You can't have capitalism without racism". The Wikiquote website attributes that quote to Malcolm X.
We're not sure if that was intended to a portrayal of him in the mural, but if so, that was a lousy attempt.
There are a lot less inflammatory quotes that could have been presented from X, who was known for preaching a fiery brand of black separatism combined with self-reliance and distrust of liberal white politicians during the civil rights era.
If you ask us, Robert Smalls, who escaped slavery in Charleston during the Civil War and helped found the South Carolina Republican Party, is much more deserving of recognition.
We talked with three of Beaufort County's legislators: State Senator Tom Davis and State Reps Shannon Erickson and Andy Patrick, all of whom were looking into the matter.
