They don't differ at all. They all eat the same things, live in the same areas and go to the same schools. One group might be still suffering at the hands of discrimination in the deep south, but that's it.

I honestly think that with all of the strife that the south has to face, we sometimes have to just shake our heads at the assumptions made about us.

It's a black thing. It really is...

But I do sometimes feel a kinship to other southerners than I do say, Mid-Westerners where I live now.

And honestly, both white and black southerners. Not just SBA.
