Especially since Jim Crow didn't legally end in some places until the 80s and it technically exists to this day in different ways. A lot of people seem to think that if you're not burning crosses and spewing slurs, you're not racist.stressed
And another negative aspect is just how short memoried the oppressor tends to be. Every time someone brings up slavery being so long ago, I just wonder how they can exclude everything that's happened since the 1860s.
Yeah. They should come to Athens, where I'm studying. People are total douchebags, and we've got plenty of fratties.
Shame that most Atlantans don't really know the racial history of the city. Black people are doing very well in the segregated South. Birth of a Nation comes out. White folk pillage and kill and burn. sad
Dunno what we can do to help in the thread. Guess if we can't change their mind, we'll have to cut our losses. Though I have noticed, being a metro-Atlanta native, that white Atlantans teeeeend to be a lil bit racist. I'm sure part of it's just the fact that white people aren't the ones in power there. It's historically precedented, unfortunately. sad
