Okay. I guess that could be seen as positivity.

And in some cases it could be seen as people in the south are worried because the president is black and in the north people are jumping for joy because they believe their president can bring change ... both are right in some cases ...

Contrary to popular belief, I find that the black and white people in the south live in better harmony than you might think. I passed the NCAACP chapter's building the other day and it is deserted, lack of business. Most people you see in the public eye speaking of these issues today are NOT from the south. We are doing pretty good down here while people still have this misconcieved notion that the racial war is still more prevelant in the south than anywhere else. I think that it may be quite the opposite.

Very true. I was in Atlanta not long ago and most of the people there were black. They were also some of the friendliest people I've ever met. Way nicer than the people in the northeast and race never seemed to be an issue at all.

Agreed!

I'm sick & tired of people assuming that conservatives/southerners hate black people (coughcoughKANYEWESTcoughcough). To assume something of my character, based solely on my skin color & geographical place of residence, is racism. Pure & simple.

I would agree with that completely. One of the greatest benefits of being in the Army is getting to meet people from all over the country. I can tell you that the most racist white people I ever knew were from the Northern states like Minnesota, Oregon and Washington. I don't think I ever met a white supremacist from a southern state.

However, of all the racist people I met in the Army, I can say that probably 90% of them were black or hispanic. Over ten years in the Army and I can still count the number of racist whites that I met on one hand.

I'm with that guy! lol
I am a preacher in South Louisiana but was raised in north Idaho. While there are still some racist whites in the south, the strongest force of racist poison is being pushed by the liberals into the minds of poor black people and telling them that the whites and the republican party are responsible for the problems they face.

God help us.
