I don't know about all the southern states but I had the unfortunate luck of living and attending public school in alabama for a few years. They were atrociously, heinously, disgustingly racist. From what I remember, the older generation had some prejudice against african-americans and the younger generation was atrociously racist against anyone different but not necessarily to eachother. The most shameful, horrendous spite came out of their filthy mouths and the most profanity I've ever heard my entire life. That state is a shame especially because they think they are better but in reality they were degenerate. Oh my god, they were nasty. That's a very prejudiced state from what I remember. It's like a bubble there.

Next time you're in town, call me and we'll drive over Devil's Dip at 45 mph. I'll wear my crash helmet; whether you want to or not is entirely up to you.

I don't know. I guess it depends on where you lived in Alabama, I suppose. We've lived there 15 years and noticed the exact opposite. My kids' schools are pretty integrated, and there are just no problems.

^ Yeah same here. I just graduated high school in '07 here in TN. My school was around 50/50 black/white. We got along well for the most part because most of us grew up together. Most conflicts were between students of the same race. Most people had racist parents though.

I know I know. But it's just hard for me to turn down a brisket.
