conservative doesn't mean "close-minded" and racist. Nor does liberal mean more open-minded and non-racist.

i'm not sure where you got the idea that small towns are cut off from the rest of the world, but its not true at all.

Perhaps, I missed the point....but, mistrust and fear are a sub-product to a lack of information. You are right....it is sad.....

Many towns in south GA are majority black, so I don't see why a black person should worry about moving there.

We did experience some resentment of northerners..but they came around!
