cynicalbastard: And soon, we will have the "And the War between the States had nothin' to do with Slavery, it was all about State's Rights and Import taxes!" crowd...
doczoidberg: Friggin' South. You bastards have nothing to be proud of. Understand???
mysticcat: I went to med school there, so here is one of my many cool story bro type stories:The main med school building abuts Nathan Bedford Forrest park where there is a giant statue of the general atop his trusty steed, a virtual ad for Memphis' backward racial attitudes. There are also several benches scattered about, on one of which two tourists were shot point blank in the head the week before I started classes. Thug life.
dukwbutter: That's right. Everyone can be proud of their heritage. Except for Southerners. That seems fair, right?
KJUW89: States' rights! States' rights!/Did I do that right?//probably not...///Stupid South indeed.
doczoidberg: Friggin' South.You bastards have nothing to be proud of. Understand???
Pochas: Why do people in the south love general Lee so much? .
Noam Chimpsky: There are still US cities named after British royalty.
max_pooper: dukwbutter: That's right. Everyone can be proud of their heritage. Except for Southerners. That seems fair, right?They can be proud all they want but they shouldn't be surprised when people correctly point that their "heritage" is deeply rooted in destructive racism.

Understand???Please spare me your condescension. There are just as many backward-ass racists and bigots in the rest of the U.S. as there are in the Southeast. Except for Mississippi, maybe. They are really bad.

max_pooper: The State of Texas officially observes (with state employees getting a paid day off) Confederate Heroes Day, Martin Luther King Day and Emancipation Day In Texas.
Dr Dreidel: Brick-House: oh wait...[www.publiusforum.com image 400x324]Oh, come on, you disingenuous farkhead, finish his life in quotes:I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened.That's from 2005. So by all means - continue slandering a man who has offered endless apology for the sins of his youth. Just like Jesus would want.// also, he's been dead for 2.5 years already, and there are plenty of living racists in Congress, if your ire is that up about it// or, regale us with your best Ted Kennedy jokes; and you probably have a good zinger about Inouye, tooapology you say...
