You aren't completely wrong. Those things did happen in parts of Missouri, but it was regional.

As much as I wish it wasn't the case, much of Southeast Missouri did have segregated seating on buses, segregated train cars, segregated theaters and restaurants specifically for African Americans. (Listed as such in business directories) This occured as far north as Cape Girardeau. I believe a few years back somebody posted a link that said once a train reached Cape heading south, the train would have to stop and the passengers had to segregate before the train could continue. I'm not sure how the rest of the state was during that time.

My admittedly limited experience with Louisville reminds me of how I grew up. You grow up in your family & around your family's friends, and your cultural viewpoints are reflective of those people. The odd thing about places like Louisville is that there are multiple cultures present in the same place. I've met people from Louisville that seemed like they belonged in Tennessee and some that seemed like they belonged in Ohio.

As for St. Louis, put me in the "completely Midwestern" camp.

Before you try and personally attack me, I suggest you come up with better facts than me. Oh wait, you have none. Go away.
The point is to showcase that you are just as biased as those who you are exposing as biased.
