    I know perfectly well how "blacks and whites get along in the South".
    Texas is not "the South". You are from Texas. I am from "the South". Everything he said was completely true for "the South".

    Apparently you've never been to West Texas.

    Have you ever been to "the North"? What part of the geographical United States does that term even encompass?

    Oh, okay. We weren't part of the confederacy. We didn't secede from the united States in 1861 and join the confederacy. Half of my male ancestors didn't die in the civil war. There weren't 250,000 slaves in Texas in 1865, after the Union had already occupied Louisiana and Arkansas and freed the slaves there.
    Slavery was not officially abolished in Texas on June 19, 1865.
    That's why black Texans don't celebrate Juneteenth.
    Yeah, that's it! You're a genius.
    No wonder you voted for Palin.
    Hey, I'll bet you think I can see Mexico's National Palace in the Plaza de la Constitución from my front yard. I'll bet you think I wave hello to President Calderón every morning.

    You don't know **** about Texas. It's gigantic.
    The part I live in is pretty similar to Louisiana, Arkansas, or anywhere else in the South. I've been all through the South- through East Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.
    It's all the same ****.

    Texas is not considered "the South". West Texas included.
