After reading the Packet's stories about Mike Cohen Sr.'s attempt to race his marsh tacky, I am perplexed.
Maybe I'm missing something, but I thought the Gullah Celebration was all about native islanders celebrating their Gullah roots. Why is the marsh tacky race essentially controlled by a white man from Ridgeland? It looks to me like Cohen was sold out by his fellow native islanders on the Gullah Celebration Committee. Shame on them.
