Re: “Southern Charm Finale: Sex, lies, and mistakes

Its funny how I was watching this show the other night for the first time. It may have been a past show but the cast was visiting a place called Boykin SC. I previously posted on Bravo and my post never appeared so Im sure it was deleted. Wow is it really that bad in 2014 to find out that you may have an Afro American relative. The reason i say this is Shepard Rose said that Boykin SC was in his family since the 1700s the same place where my Great Grand Father was born and yes his last name was Boykin and so is my mothers and my Family's name. I have visited Boykin SC years ago and it is rich with history and the stories of Burwell Boykin and Whit Boykin who created the state dog - Boykin Spaniel, they really didnt go into detail of the property and they did keep slaves back in the day like many people did in those days. I have always been proud to be a Boykin and the name holds high in SC even in this day and age. And yes I am of African American descent, So I guess that would make Shep a family member in some form or another. Dont be ashamed shep it is what it is and it cant be undone. I guess its just one of those family secrets that people dont talk about.
