and attacked them

2017-08-26 04:07:26 UTC  

@Hector yea you're right, it's a hard thing to explain to people

2017-08-26 04:07:34 UTC  

The rest of the South pretty much rolled over and played dead

2017-08-26 04:07:37 UTC  

with some exceptions

2017-08-26 04:07:38 UTC  

WHY

2017-08-26 04:07:39 UTC  

Jeff says a number of buildings have collapsed where he is

2017-08-26 04:07:41 UTC  

no one knows

2017-08-26 04:08:13 UTC  

when you go down south you actually feel bad for the blacks kind of, at least i did

2017-08-26 04:08:14 UTC  

appalachia didn't roll over, but yea

2017-08-26 04:08:15 UTC  

I think its because the Klan in Alabama and Mississippi had a good leadership structure

2017-08-26 04:08:21 UTC  

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.

2017-08-26 04:08:38 UTC  

@Swiss TBH I feel bad for the huwhytes that got fucked by the yankees

2017-08-26 04:08:45 UTC  

Appalachia also never really had slavery to the same degree.

2017-08-26 04:08:46 UTC  

Appalachia didnt have a Negro prob to deal with BUT where they were Negroes and Hillbilies have certain understandings

2017-08-26 04:08:51 UTC  

Like where my Dad grew up

2017-08-26 04:08:58 UTC  

they had racially integrated Schools

2017-08-26 04:09:02 UTC  

in the 1940s

2017-08-26 04:09:02 UTC  

Even in northern GA you have 90% white communities.

2017-08-26 04:09:17 UTC  

Kentucky didnt have Jim Crow

2017-08-26 04:09:22 UTC  

it had Local Option Jim Crow

2017-08-26 04:09:35 UTC  

which meant each county had a choice how much they could or would enforce

2017-08-26 04:09:41 UTC  

@Hector appalachia had house niggers, but not field niggers

2017-08-26 04:09:46 UTC  

Thus some counties were as segregated as Mississippi

2017-08-26 04:09:50 UTC  

while others werent

2017-08-26 04:10:03 UTC  

Thats why KY was so wierd

2017-08-26 04:10:16 UTC  

@Billy Ray Jenkins there was still enforcement of cultural norms, blacks were held to a certain standard

2017-08-26 04:10:20 UTC  

Where my Dad grew up

2017-08-26 04:10:21 UTC  

right

2017-08-26 04:10:23 UTC  

Jeff says there are seagulls trapped in the eye

2017-08-26 04:10:27 UTC  

They integrated the town schools

2017-08-26 04:10:39 UTC  

because the county didnt have any money to pay for separate school

2017-08-26 04:10:46 UTC  

but the county high was kept white

2017-08-26 04:10:58 UTC  

That was in the 1940s

2017-08-26 04:11:05 UTC  

That was in the mountains ie Local Option

2017-08-26 04:11:10 UTC  

i find old southern blacks quite interesting

2017-08-26 04:11:14 UTC  

now the next county over

2017-08-26 04:11:20 UTC  

the respect whites

2017-08-26 04:11:22 UTC  

they had Negro school and were fully segregated

2017-08-26 04:11:25 UTC  

understand we are different
