I wish the South would become like the Northeast in some aspects but we have a long way to go...For instance it's very telling that eventhough the South region has the most blacks very few Southern States were won by Obama due to the rednecks down here rallying behind the Rep. canadite under the banner of white pride/supremacy.

How exactly is that? Who says they weren't like many western states and saw Obama as nothing but an empty suit and empty promises?

It's obvious that you're showing a hateful, bigoted disgust for white southerners.

Southerners have been shown to support black candidates, as was done in South Carolina this past election, when a black man ran as a conservative Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives. He won on his issues, not his race.

Obama was not trusted. He was viewed as an outright Socialist (Marxist), which is what he is. Southerners knew the score long before gullible, northern whites did. You should be congratulate white southerners for showing a greater intelligence in spotting the obvious, something that northerners living in homogeneously white areas couldn't do, as they felt the need to pay homage to their white guilt.

Knock it off, and take this nonsense to the Political forum.

So why did those wise rednecks in the South put a buffon like Bush in the office for 2 consecutive terms? Shouldn't their foresight they used to judge Obama's perceived shortcoming have seen G-Dubya was an stupid good ole boy whom's incompetence and warmongering was bankrupting the country? Clearly Southern white inbreds were/are blinded allegiance to maintaining the white power structure.

Let's be honest here, people like that are in ALL 50 states. You just seem to pin it on the south because these days it is an acceptable target. And I'm an anti-Obama White Westerner. Or am I just another "Ignorant Hick" in your book?

It takes more than carrying the South to win a presidential election, it certainly doesn't hurt, but Bush also carried the Southwestern, Midwestern, Intermountainous Western and a few Rust Belt states. In 2000 the Republicans took over after 10 years of Democrats, and he got re-elected because he was a wartime President, Americans tend to re-elect wartime presidents. But it's not all Southerners being racist, it's YOU pontificating this whole race issue.

I think your demeanor towards others tells what you are easily. It's YOU talking race, it's YOU making racial comments, it's not us, it is YOU!

Whenever I go home I'm re-amazed at just how tiny all of the cities are here. That and they abruptly end into rural areas. For example, Nashville-despite its notoriety as being the music capital of the US- is quite small. Its only about 600,000 people. Compared to NYC, Chicago, SF, LA, and so on that's really small. With the exception of the cities in TX and then of course Atlanta, most Southern cities are smaller. At least in my home state you have to drive literally hours through sparsely settled rural countryside to get from one major city to the next.

That said... I have noticed some recent changes. Most of the major cities here- Knoxville, Nashville, and Chattanooga- have all experienced massive improvements. There's now a whole slew of hoity-toity restaurants,microbreweries, art galleries, and even Sushi restaurants whereas when I was a kid downtown was dead. Lots of old buildings got turned into lofts.I think part of this revival could be attributed to newcomers relocating to these cities. These are the people that fixed up the downtown area. For the most part the original charm of the city has been retained.
.
Its a different story when you go to the suburbs. Its filled with mostly cookie-cutter mcmansions, strip malls, big box stores, and so on. Read just about any post on these
sites and its the same exact post: Someone wants to move to NC,TN, SC, TX, and so on AND they want a large 3-4 bedroom house in a safe neighborhood with perfect schools, shopping, and so on and so on- basically they want that Mcmansion in the subdivision and they want it cheap. Thus here they come to the South to snatch up that house.

Anyway- I guess the way I look at it is that we're a country of movers. We move to one region and once that region "dries up" we're off to the better, greater, cheaper place until that one too gets overrun and overpriced. Hopefully I'll be able to move back home before
that happens.



I think this is another mlsconception about the NE. The states up here can be similar in that the cities can be far apart with rural land and small towns
