[parody title]

Seriously how do you white rural Southern boys think you helping yourselves out? ( I'm a white southern boy myself from a rural town)

[ Fair warning: I'm going to generalize here]

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!

A lot of the rural folks I know have great respect for the Extension agents and their knowledge of crop science and animal science. Far cry from the stereotype you describe.

Did you get this from BET or something?

You really need to stop listening to Rev Wright.

Better then spending it on crack or Ludicrous tapes?

And it's very likely the extension agent is trustworthy because he is one of you. He's white like you. He lives in the Country like you. It has little to do with his credentials. I'm sure he's a good ole boy.


This is the problem. RSW's let cultural divides get in the way of making rational decisions.

Hell, we mind our own business and keep to ourselves. What's wrong with that?

Actually, I think that you should consider that stereotyping is the first step to marginalizing a group of people. What you are doing here is trying to marginalize a wide swath of the American population. That, to me, is much more harmful than the fact that there are parts of the population that don't share your values and perspectives.

No you don't. Terry Shiavo ring a bell? You took custody of her from her husband so your Southern white GOP men could make polictal hay from a brain dead women.

You push prayer in public schools. You think it's a good idea to invade and occupy other countries. You try and tell women what they can do with their pregnancy. You try and tell two adults who they can marry.

We can only wish you would mind your own business.

Yep, it rings a bell. I remember thinking, "That ain't none of anyone's business--why drag it through court and the media? His (the husband's) decision--not no one else's."

Nobody I know knows my stance on religion--I ain't even set foot in a church for a couple of years. I'm against the war, I'm against government interference.

I'm just a poor white Southerner.

Great job of completely stereotyping white southerners.

Why do blacks sell crack and rob stores?

Why do middle easterners blow everything up?

Why do Native Americans do nothing but drink and gamble?

Shall we go on?
