Message from Billy Ray Jenkins in Vibrant Diversity #general
You have to be from the south to get it, in my opinion.
I'd rather live around southern small town niggers than most other diversity
i've been down south once. i far prefer southern niggers to northern niggers.
Jeff is live
You will see during the Civil Rights Movement only really Alabama and Mississippi took the Negro issue very seriously
and attacked them
The rest of the South pretty much rolled over and played dead
with some exceptions
Jeff says a number of buildings have collapsed where he is
no one knows
when you go down south you actually feel bad for the blacks kind of, at least i did
appalachia didn't roll over, but yea
I think its because the Klan in Alabama and Mississippi had a good leadership structure
It's remarkable how ignorant most of the country is about the demographics in the south. Many think it's just Christian whites and that's it.
Appalachia also never really had slavery to the same degree.
Appalachia didnt have a Negro prob to deal with BUT where they were Negroes and Hillbilies have certain understandings
Like where my Dad grew up
they had racially integrated Schools
in the 1940s
Even in northern GA you have 90% white communities.
Kentucky didnt have Jim Crow
it had Local Option Jim Crow
which meant each county had a choice how much they could or would enforce
Thus some counties were as segregated as Mississippi
while others werent
Thats why KY was so wierd
@Billy Ray Jenkins there was still enforcement of cultural norms, blacks were held to a certain standard
Where my Dad grew up
Jeff says there are seagulls trapped in the eye
They integrated the town schools
because the county didnt have any money to pay for separate school
but the county high was kept white
That was in the 1940s
