"before civil rights" era would be before 1963. Big Creek, Mississippi. My mother felt guilty all her life because she made the mistake of befriending a black man in the 1940's and he was hung for it. Yeah, so as with all things, I guess it's what side of the tracks you were born.

we went to dinner a bit ago with some friends and were laughing about this whole thing. A&E or whatever it is are screwed no matter what the ducks are and the winners . Did most people hear what he said or did they hear what someone said he said. Just like this mess Jim Crow wasn't mentioned but what the heck pull the race card. I hope A&E implode after this season. By the way I don't have a TV so I can even watch the show. REDNECKS RULE isn't reality great!! I wonder what the next name will be after africian americans ,

i don't know why you or others even bother trying to convince people who repeatedly refuse to admit their ignorance and listen to the reality, their mind was made up as soon as they posted and the truth doesn't matter.

one reason i rarely ever post on these kind of threads because most such people don't discuss anything, they declare truth and repeat that truth over and over and refuse to actually converse, they're never wrong and they never concede any point where they were mistaken. maybe some of them will but sadly that seems to be the minority these days on this site.

southern white people are just all racist, homophobic, inbred, trailer trash who deny the truth of the past and refuse to accept how horrible they and all their ancestors were, they never suffered anything nor have they been mistreated or anything bad, what they say are all lies.
*sarcasm*

whatever but continue on if you think it will help, i mean it's not my time to waste and all i suppose.

Thats kind of the rub, now isnt it? It is racist to discriminate on skin color, but there is no word for when one discriminates against another because they are on the wrong side of the Mason Dixon.

And it isn't like people feel superior only due to the state they live in. On ATS, apparently, no one has ever even seen a television. But they all feel qualified to weigh in on this man's character.

What a stupid statement. I know racist northerners, so does that mean northerners are all racists? I bet there are some with little education also.

I did not know there were cotton fields in the North.



How about any number of shared work environments were whites and black work together.

I think I will end this by saying. You know nothing about true pre-civil rights southern culture. Neither does that player Phil Robertson.

Ok. I gave you a star for that. But must also say that I was alive post civil rights era. Lived in a neighborhood that was racial divided by a street running down the middle, but we all went to the same school. Later lived in an area that was 98% black and most of those migrants from the south 1st and 2nd generation. My own parents were from the south, not deep south, we visited often enough.

I had the rare opportunity in the service to observe the manners and attitudes of both southern and northern whites and blacks in an environment that allowed for easily seen and heard contrast of all. I have to say that northerners of both races were far more prejudice and racist than the southerners.

I have seen a great deal of racism coming from all directions and in a great many different setting. The only person to ever call me a honkey was a white man. lol. But have been called a cracker on any number of occasions.

What's scary is that there are fully funded groups out there with the sole purpose of silencing americans for expressing their rights to free speech. This is a perfect example of this act in progress.

Can't have no hillbilly telling the sheeple stuff.


hell no.

can't have that subversiveness.


so if phil was quoting the bible and people didn't like what he SAID, what's the difference if the shreekers just read it?

would they claw their brains out? or try to get the bible banned?

I bet you can tell us.

Why do you dislike gays so much that 90% of your posts in gay related threads get removed for serious TAC violations?

Bigotry is bigotry. So don't feel too superior.

FEAR. The mentality "a gain for you=a loss for me". POWER. To overcome the fear.

We have become a nation of fearful humans and afraid to solve problems. It is easier to HATE.

I'm a white guy in a minority world. The whites are being replaced and outpaced by most of the minorities. it's true. But eventually we'll all be brown anyway. I'm not racist. The you es has nothing on canada in terms of multiculturism. We're a big big mix and people grow up without that racism here, that we see so much in the you es. As for gays ya I can't stand them I'm glad my city is very redneck.

My comments had nothing to do with you being racist or not. I was commenting on how you pick and choose what you will be tolerant of.

As it regards racism, I rarely see it. I typically only put myself i the company of a type of person who would not behave in that manner.

Regardless, there is no difference between disliking gays in general and racism. Its the same thing, except with a different target.

I dont' think so because I don't believe you're born gay, your race you can't choose.

You are willing to denigrate another human because of your belief? I thought belief was religious....


You DO realize that belief that sexuality is a choice is an admission of homosexual feelings, right? I think you are born into sexuality because I could not have homosexual sex. But to believe that one could simply choose to be homosexual indicates a viewpoint that already has homosexual proclivities.
