not surprising, ghetto black or thug culture probably originated in the south though it has pretty much spread. blacks learned or adopted this behavior or mindset from bigoted, sometimes violent but aggressive, haughty, self-entitled racist whites. now the thug culture is negative, not necessarily ghetto though. though it can be intertwined as well.

You think it's a bad thing have an advanced education. You mock scientists. You cheer on any War they tell you is needed. You try and legislate morality. You try and push your religion into public schools and court houses. You bad mouth unions that have given this country the "weekend" and "overtime pay".
You're against raising the minimum wage so a man who wants to work can earn a living for his family. You're against healthcare for those less fortunate than yourselves. You actually whine when the rich must pay more of a share in taxes.

I now live in in a wealthy neighborhood and exclusive school district in the South. Do you think it's your type that is running the show here? Hardly.

Asians and Jews and transplants from the Coasts are on the rise here. They respect teachers, they value scientists, they know how important is is to have marketable skills. They don't push their religion on others. The unionized pilots here make very sure their careers and incomes are secure for their families sake. The Asian Doctors send their kids to advanced tutoring while your spending your money on a new "wave runner" or Z71.

You're killing us................You should travel to Europe and see how white boys are supposed to act......hint: They use their brains!

Reading the OPs post its obvious its BS.

OK, I get that this is a joke, but a lot of what you mentioned fits.

The issue is its not all or even most whites, nor is it just rural whites. Its the Fringe Far Right wingers and the uneducated under class (not necessarily poor, just uneducated).

It's not a joke. I pm'd the OP. He was being sincere but he realizes he is generalizing. I won't reveal where he is from out of confidentiality but he was not making any of this up.

The OP wasn't saying it was most whites. He was referring to White far right wing people in rural areas and the South.

I've seen this as a physician too. The patients who are the most distrusting of doctors and believe in all the b.s. conspiracy theories about vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry mostly come from this same class of people the OP is referring to. They are very distrustful of science and modern medicine.

What I fail to understand about people from this culture (Southern and Rural whites) is they act intolerant and are not open-minded yet they don't want to be labeled as such.

These behaviors aren't limited to--or even more prevalent in--the south. Ignorant people everywhere are as you describe. Left, right, black or white doesn't matter....

You really need to stop listening to Rev Wright.

Better then spending it on crack or Ludicrous tapes?
Didn't you read the part about "using your brain"?

Yes, let us remember always that right to work states do not have weekends or overtime pay; that minimum wage hikes have no effect on the costs of goods and services; and that good fortune, luck and crystal balls are what determine success or failure.
