    Hogwash. You post that there are 16 hate groups operating in SC.

    That might be true, but take a look at the Hate Map.

    Deep blue NY has WAY more. So does PA and NJ.

    I didn't notice a war. Maybe you're involved in one. If so, I wish you luck. Be sure to take along your meds.

    The relevant statistic here is the no. of anti-Black hate groups per capita in SC vs. NY.

    Congrats. You wrote the most disgusting post I've read in a very long time.

What is just true is it's different here than where you live, or in Canada, and it definitely relates to CENTURIES of institutionalized racism and state enforced white supremacy in this region that didn't officially end until the 1960s (my lifetime) and still exists because many people brought up in that culture are still alive and haven't changed all that much, and many of them handed down their own biases to their children born in the 1960s and 70s. But that attitude is slowly and literally dying out, which is a good thing (not that people are dying, but that the ingrained racism they learned as children is...).

    A good example is that Baptist Church in Kentucky that voted to ban interracial marriage in their church and wouldn't allow the black boyfriend/fiance to sing with the choir. The vote was 9-6 for the ban, but 25 or more didn't vote and so were in Glen's formulation "tolerant" of the racists in their church. The vote is probably flipped in almost all churches now, but various polls have shown that in this decade (the 2010s), between 20-40% of conservative whites support racist interracial marriage bans, so the belief isn't rare at all.

    The only surprising thing to me is that the church had a vote, and a majority was willing to put their racism on the record. But even with that the ringleader had to hilariously disavow racism as the motive (of course not....), so the culture is absolutely changing.
    It's exactly what he said. It was as stupid a presumption as solletica saying that this murderer is going to be hailed as a hero in the south.

    We can all come up with "good examples" of everything. The Westboro Baptists aren't representative of Baptists. Susan Smith isn't representative of mothers. Ted Bundy wasn't representative of northwest law students. Charles Manson wasn't representative of song writing hippies.

    There are racists in this country. There are also sexists, ageists, and on and on and on. No ****. You think anyone thinks otherwise?

    Glen habitually and repeatedly says the south is racist. There are racists in the south. To anyone with half of a functioning brain that does not mean the south is racist.
