Yeah, I'm way late, I know. Was born/raised in Ntz. Spent first 40 years of my life there. Old money runs Ntz, or at least did. Racism is rampant, both ways. Had to go there about 5 years ago, went to Walmart to buy something. Mostly blacks working there, hatred coming from them is palpable. Guess they think that whites shouldn't go to their Wal-mart.

Got worse when we went to Shoneys out towards 61 south, across from hospital. All blacks working there, it was early am, just a few people in there. Me and another white woman went up to the buffet, only available plates there were DIRTY, had NOT been washed. Told the man working buffet that we needed clean plates. Pure hatred coming from his eyes as he slowly took the dirty stack away. Could feel the same from the waitress but she hid it lots better. Manager was only civil one which showed no hostility but who knows what she was hiding.

I despise that place and it has been economically dead for many years. Wouldn't live in southern MS ever again for ANY reason.

No white person in their right mind would willingly want to endure this kind of hatred on a daily basis. Wasn't nearly this bad even 10-20 years ago, different place today.
