” I hate the n word and would never even use it in a joke, BUT Paula Deen grew up in a segregated era in the south and Im sure they feel totally different than the normal person. “
First off, “segregated era of the South”? Hate to tell you but Jim Crowe laws started in the North. I know public school history taught by the communists want you to believe racism was only in the South, but the North had its fair share. Hint: Slavery was started in the North by a black man that enslaved another black man during a time when slavery was illegal.
Second, what kind of “off color” jokes have you told yet refuse to use that dreaded n-word? Really? Can’t tell a black joke using that word but any other word is fair game?
I have nothing against the South but I do insist on being truthful. Jim Crow laws began in the South, pushed by Democrats after the Compromise of 1877.
You’re exactly right. Segregation was over and done in the South when the National Guard had to be called out in the mid-1970’s to enforce segregation in...wait for it...
Ummm, what definition of 'the North' incorporates Virginia?
Hmm. I could have sworn that slaves came from the Dutch West Indies in 1619. In Virginia. Yep, think that’s right. Yep. It is right.
My Mom was born in the early 1920s in Indiana. When she was growing up, it was against the law in that county for a black man to be in the county between sundown and sunrise. She said the law was changed when she was around 10-12.
New York passed a law in 1948 banning racial discrimination in hiring--more than 80 years after the Civil War.
Major League Baseball had its first black player in 1947--when nearly all of the teams were in Northern cities (all except the Washington Senators and arguably the two St. Louis teams). Why had the teams not been integrated all along? The sport was invented by Yankees.
In the era of passenger trains, the black employees were sleeping car porters and maids, not engineers or conductors. It wasn't that none of the black employees would have liked to be an engineer or a conductor.
Alexis de Tocqueville, traveling in the US in the 1830s, thought that racial prejudice was stronger in the regions of the country where slavery had been abolished.
