I just want to point out that the uneducated rednecks in the bible belt are much more prone to rioting than African Americans are....
This has got to be one of the most ignorant statements I have every read on ATS.
Would you really like to test this statement up against historical facts?
I have lived in the south for my entire 38 years of existance and never once have I seen "uneducated rednecks" riot. I have however seen riots of
urban African Americans (LA was not the only Rodney King riot), Educated college students riot after numerous sporting events and a near riot of
hispanic americans in Atlanta that resulted with some college age illegals getting hauled off to jail.
I cant recall a single instance of a riot being started by any kind of "redneck".
Twitter recently has been flooded with threats to riot if Romney wins. The vast majority of those making that claim are minorities.
