    Many does not mean most, and though you would like us all to believe that whites hate blacks, it's people like Jackson and Sharpton who hate blacks more, and are the race hustlers who "keep racism alive". They don't want it to go away more than anyone else in the universe.

    So commonplace folks in the South have beards down to their knees, is that it? Another swipe at the South?

    I live in the South. I was born here, and raised here. I'm not taking a swipe at anything. Sheesh.

    If I were taking a swipe at the South, you'd know it.

    Nice, me too. But I didn't make an association or imply fakers. Are they guys a bunch of carpetbaggers that moved down here?

    What seems to contradict the whole "racist" label put on the family, is the fact that Willie and his wife's adopted son Will, is bi-racial (black & white) and their adopted daughter is from Taiwan. Will was adopted many years before the reality series was even a concept.

    I don't know. I assume they are from here. All I know is that everything I've read about them just screams that they are only "bearded up" and doing the whole flannel shirt thing because it's good for their demographic. Look at their pictures before they got this TV show. They certainly don't look anything like they do now. They are part of the marketing machine that is A&E. Look what Food Network did to Paula Deen. She was a normal gramma before the FN Marketing Machine got ahold of her. Now she's just a caricature of her former self. She's nothing like what she was. That is why I call them all a bunch of fakers - because they sold out who they really were, just to make a buck on TV.

    You know they were famous before this show. Those photos look pretty old. I mean guys in the top photo had no gray hair.

    They weren't famous - they were wealthy. Big difference, to me. As far as the photos, I don't know. You don't just go from fresh-scrubbed yuppie to grizzled-bearded mountain men without a really, really good reason (and that reason probably has a lot of zeroes behind it). I can even see maybe one of them making that change. But all of them? Nah. Not buyin' it. They had a reason for making such a big change in their appearance.

    I know plenty of hunters that don't look like that. Maybe it was A&E's idea. Speaking of fakers, how about A&E with their faux outrage over their cashcow.
