Who do you think works in the service industry in those areas? Poor and working class people of all races.
Whoa, man. Unless the rural areas in SC are any different than they are in Georgia and Alabama, I dont know about that.

Many rural towns here in Middle and South Georgia struggle with poverty and are ghetto like inner city areas. The same in West and South Alabama.

They honestly are worse, IMO. Turning old buildings that used to be something else into clubs, love to fight to "prove" themselves, usually more "tacky" in the way the locals dress. The nightlife in many of these backwoods towns consist of using the local "American Legion" posts to hold parties more ghetto than even the inner city of large cities. This is definitely not the move for me

The Legion, Sparta, GA



The Legion, Thomasville, GA


Most of these towns are like this.

Ok I was done but I need to add this to my earlier statement to be clear:I am awre of Virginia and its role in the slave trade as well as Maryland,I just did not remember the name Tidewater.

Gotcha. Tidewater is the name given to coastal Virginia, the Hampton Roads area.

ahh man, I dont even want to get started on FVSU. Too many people in my family and people I know went there. Were you there when it was still named FVSC and they had those commercials, "FVSC, it's the place to be " I remember it from when I was a kid and my aunts went there.

I was 19-20 about 10 years ago attending AAMU and came home to visit one weekend. I went with my friends to a FVSU Greek party at Spruce Street Gym and it ended up in a huge fight with the crowd being pepper sprayed.

No I was an older student in the Air Force.i commuted from Perry where I lived with my grandmother but I still experienced what it was like in Fort Valley.
It was a university for about2 or 3 years when I went there.

Fort Valley the city was a ratchet city but has improved greatly.Actually remarkably.Still poor but not as visibly so as it was.
