Your right, you did help participate in what I am talking about, but you were not the pioneer of it in this topic. What I'm talking about happened several pages before you even came in here.

I don't think its fair to complain about whites going out of there way to make a thread into a racial bashfest when blacks (i'm assuming) from the north come into a thread about blacks and people of all races in general moving to the south and call all blacks in the south ignorant and oppressed and all whites oppressors and racists that are good 'ol boys.
The whole good 'ol boy thing was never southern just the name for it. If you think anything on this earth is new, you need to think that through, because its just not true.

The good 'ol boy network only applies to wealthy well connected people, regardless of race or even country. Theres millions of whites who are not a good 'ol boy and there are millions of blacks who are good 'ol boys. If you haven't already noticed this, you are blind to reality due to your bias. which means you are ignorant.

I think volume is the key, as we have to think about who owns what and to waht degree. That's not saying that your last comments aren't true, but we have to be honest as to the degree when all things are considered.

Nah the good ole Boys are wealthy racist Southern bred rednecks whom hold the most power in the region due to inheritated white privilege and old money made off the backs of oppressing blacks during slavery day...Non white wealthy folk can't be good ole boys cause they don't control the institutions in the South and would never be fully accepted into good ole boy klan due to race....I've also heard good ole boys described as hicks whom are proud of there hillbilly/white Southern culture so you don't got to be rich to be a good ole boy....Being white, Southern, country and a bigot is usually the only criteria.

blacks are going to the south because the number of blacks there is already larger than anywhere in the country.

Delaware is in the South? Not really, and I tend to take a very liberal definition of "South." Delaware is closely tied to Philly and other Northern cities. Maryland is definitely the South (or at least not the Northeast). DC is southern like Miami or Austin - geographically south, but not culturally Southern.

Personally, I think blacks are migrating south primarily for job opportunities. Family roots may play a part, but economics is the largest determinant. Mississippi and Louisiana aren't seeing large increases in their black populations, while Minnesota (arguably the most non-southern state in the country) is seeing a rapidly-increasing black population. Minnesota, like North Carolina and Texas, has a relatively good job market, even though the black population is fairly low (4.4% as of 2000). Before you say blacks are only moving to the Twin Cities, even somewhat small towns like Mankato and Marshall are receiving large numbers of black migrants.

^ Delaware is southern.
It doesn't matter of Wilmington is in Philly's MSA its a southern city. Facts and history can back that up. If Wilmington is northern than so is Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

A lot of that is from African immigrants/refugees too. Many have moved from the South as well though.
