Voiceofreason01: It's a good thing there's no institutionalized racism  in the US because otherwise this would be awkward.


I grew up right outside DC and lived in Chicago for most of my adult life, then moved to VA. Holy fark moving to the South was like culture shock. These rednecks wish each other a happy "Lee-Jackson Day" and fly confederate flags on MLK day. They talk about the Civil War "war of Northern aggression" like it happened last year. I even been called a carpetbagger before. Who the hell still says that??

Some folks down here refer to it as "The Wo-wah", as if it was two syllables.

/I was always a fan of "The Late Unpleasantness."


Put me down for 'The War of Southern Treason'. Which I never really used until those inbred assholes started pushing the 'War of Northern Aggression' bullshiat on national media.

/Why should my taxes go to pay for some shiathole Southern state?

What part of VA did you live in? I've lived in central and southwest Virginia 21 out of my 51 years and I don't ever recall anyone even acknowledging Lee-Jackson Day on a personal level, or being moved one way or another on MLK Day.

Tabletop: Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: Maybe they should stop celebrating Treason.

We live in a country founded by the same kind of treason. Seems pretty hypocritical to complain about them celebrating theirs unless you take the same stance every fourth of july.


Even if you take away the fact that slavery and racism was the driving force behind the South's uprising, the two still don't equate.  The colonies had no American representation in Parliment.  Colonists were often denied the right of a jury trial, instead tried by British judges.    And it was only when Fat George wanted to raid the colonies for all they were worth that the uprising happened.  His father basically forgot the colonies existed and let them do their own thing.

The South had the representation in congress they agreed to.  There was a framework in place for them to directly effect the change in law.  But that wasn't good enough for them.

dittybopper: Well, I guess it's nice that Spike Lee and Samuel L. Jackson have their own day, but I'm at a loss to understand why.  I can see Samuel L. Jackson for his inherent badassitude, but I've never really been a fan of Spike Lee.


Are you sure it isn't for Lee Majors?  He was pretty badass back in the day.

The fact that you apparently posted that in earnest indicates you lack the basic logical skills necessary to evaluate why everyone is now laughing and dismissing any future opinion you put forth.


I suppose I could limit my comments to pure insults with no substance, how's it working out for you?

I've never been called a carpet bagger, but I've been called northerner plenty of times.

Yeah, the do love them some institutionalized racism in the heavily Republican South.

So, you're a filthy carpet bagging Yankee**

**Yankee:  Anyone that was born north of I-10


reminds be of a Penn Jillette told on his radio show

To a foreigner a Yankee is some who lives in the USA
To a southerner a Yankee is someone who lives in the north
To people in the north a Yankee is someone who lives in New England
To people in New England a Yankee is someone who lives in Vermont and had pie for breakfast

I was unaware he was part fish. Would have thought that'd be more widely known. It certainly makes all of his accomplishments more impressive.
