    That the south has and continues to struggle with racism to a greater degree than the rest of the country.
    Are you seriously going to argue that racism was/is less prevalent in the South...and you believe that instances in the North proves this?

    All you are doing is proving that racists exist everywhere (no one denies) and not showing the LEVEL of racism.

    You're a reasonable guy. Tell me intellectually, using their testing scores, how they stand. All I hear is bad things that they don't get the education everyone else does.

    The comments came after an NBC reporter asked the senator why Obama has such low approval ratings in Louisiana. Landrieu's first response was that the president's energy policies are deeply disliked by residents of the oil and gas-rich state.

    She then added, "I'll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader."
    I guess in context, she isn't saying what I thought she was. I'm just so tired of liberals pretending that racism is a only a conservative problem that I saw it in her comment even when it wasn't there. My bad.

    Not even starting down that road. My current location has nothing to do with the inanity of the "Democrats are still the party of the Klan" shtick. Yeah, no one believes that, not even the people who actually say it.

    It has everything to do with it, since you're trying sell yourself as an authority on Southern culture.
