"Liberal" is relative to time and place. I get the feeling certain people think even Mitt Romney is "too liberal".

As for a MS version of AOC? I get the feeling the OP means a Mississippi conservative version of AOC (hint: there's already several of them nationally. One of them even lives at 1600 Pennsylvania). But for someone of AOCs ideology - the best chance for that is a legislative seat covering either Biloxi, Bay St. Louis, or Fondren and Belhaven in Jackson. Long-serving Memphis state senator and now US congressman Steve Cohen, unmistakably a liberal, kept winning reelections for at least a generation. So it could happen in one of those places, however unlikely.

On top of that, the metro area that is REALLY growing is Gulfport-Biloxi. So I will support them more. However, again, we all know that’s not exactly what you want.
We would need more people in other counties to relocate into the metros and others near the largest micropolitan citiess as well.

Jackson's metro is still increasing and ahead of Gulfport-Biloxi by a large margin.

We could have more than 3 metros (Jackson, Gulfport-Biloxi, Hattiesburg) but most mississippians seems to prefer small city living.

Well. Good job showing your true colors. Sorry that you feel that way and I find it pretty offensive that you project your feelings onto the rest of us.

You see no problem with generalizing entire races or groups of people into a single box? Nothing at all wrong with that?

Seems pretty inaccurate to me. As far as I know Mississippians don't hate each other. I think white and black get along pretty well here.

Speaking for myself I don't hate anyone. I'm not even married to someone of my own color. Nobody gives us trouble. We have lots of friends. I don't get it.

Help me understand, JacksonPanther.

Yeah, it stems from their own unhappiness. Anybody who throws around "hate" or those catch-all buzz words in this day and age are usually just unhappy about their own situation or jealous of others. Thus, lashing out and blaming someone else is the easy thing to do.

In general Mississippi race relations are better than the rest of the country, especially with the groups being nearly equal.

I'm curious how you square this with the political divide between the white and African Americans in Mississipppi. Mississippi whites are roughly 70% registered republican and Mississippi blacks are roughly 75% registered democrat.

Do you have a source for those statistics? I would be pretty surprised if only 75% of African Americans are registered to vote in Mississippi are registered as Democrats. I would assume it would be close to 90 percent.
