Default Racist/Redneck towns in Georgia?

Can anyone give me some information on racist/redneck towns in Georgia. What small towns would you say are the most racist, and why would you consider them to be that way. Thanks

A previous thread>>>
More rednecks? N. or S. GA?


I thought the poster that said, 'It takes one to know one. Define what you mean by redneck...' was astute.

I don't mean it as a bad thing at all, if that is what you were thinking. Maybe it was the wrong word to use in what I was asking. What I mean to say is what towns would you say are mostly white, possibly racist, and have a good down home country attitude such as going out camping, shooting at cans from their back porch and getting some mud on their tires.

I know a lot about that state! And to answer your question, SOUTH GA!!!!!!!!!!


Towns like Cochran, Chester, Montrose, Dudley, Danville, etc.

Danville still has black and white sections (designated-"The Quarters" being the darker section of town)

Sad, but true.

Thank you "crouchtiger" for the information. Is there anyone else out there willing to be kind and give me any more information on this topic.

Are you looking join a group such as the KKK, or get raped by hillbilly. You need to be clear on your intentions, so we can help?

Well if you are driving through Texas on I-10, Vidor is one place I would avoid. It is a stronghold of the KKK and even in the Early 90's refused to integrate their housing, instead preferring to run the black population out of the town.

The whole town is like a scene out of Deliverance.

The KKK is still exists in parts of Indiana & Illinois. Why do you think blacks never ventured very far outside of Chicago.
