White Wing (huit wing) NOUN. Wealthy caucasian conservative males who oppose all laws that would decrease their power.
It was revealed today that in 1925, Senator Strom Thurmond fathered an illegitimate daughter with a 15-year-old black housemaid. He kept the truth quiet for over 60 years as a strident supporter of segregation and opponent of civil rights laws. This kind of secret is a common occurrence in the Deep South, where the roots of the White Wing run deep.
