You can spare me with this idea that the northern part of the country is all loving of the ethnic/colored. Even today.

I always admired the US and thought how forward thinking it was.. sadly I was wrong..I just looked at smiling facing around the burning and lynching of a young black man Jesse Washington.. What the hell is wrong with the law in these places..
