Probably from all the slave descendants.



Do you think there was never slavery in the North?

And, racial diversity covers all races (not just African Americans)....

There were far more slaves in the South leading up to and during the Civil War.

Lots of Hispanics in the South, too.

I got one thing left to say, especially since I already locked this thread and nobody stopped talking.

PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE.

Look for the good in them, if there is any, you'll see it. Nice people come in all shapes, shades, sizes. If you don't already play poker, that's a great way to meet nice people. Start playing poker. You can bluff them, check-raise them, take their money, before you know it you've met some new friends. There's way too much hate in the world, stop hating and play poker.

Thread CLOSED!!!

Plenty of slaves in the Indian Territory as well. Are you going to call the Cherokee "racist?"

If the moccasin fits, wear it.

Difference is, do they intentionally celebrate symbols associated with slavery and do they they have an alternative to choose instead?

No idea. My symbol is about southern rock and southern culture.

Slavery ended almost 160 years ago. Get over it and get on with your life.

That's not the point. We are talking about perceptions which are difficult to convince people to change. To them the south is synonymous with racism



No, the South is now synonymous with winning college football.

People in South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas and eastern Texas now band together and self-identify and take pride in the SEC (South East Conference) and its football teams. Since we are not allowed to express regional pride in other ways, southerners pour an incredible amount of passion and money into SEC college football.

And we take great pleasure at being better at college football than any other region of the country. And probably the worst major college football program in America? The pantywaists of Rutgers, located in the toxic waste dump that is called New Jersey, a financially insolvent state that is known for corruption, rudeness and a miserable quality of life.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

I'm a little surprised it hasn't been closed. Maybe the Wizard is tallying up the violators off topic for one big ban hammer massacre. There will be blood.
