While we're used to getting a "bad rap" in the South, it really is quite old and tiresome.
You wouldn't know it by the "ignorant southerner" stereotypes hurled at us, but slavery was abolished close to 150 years ago, and--news flash to the slavery-obsessed!!--black people are actually free in the South, and they're treated quite well here.
More divide and conquer. People need to learn history. Seriously.
Instead of being obsessed with their past, those of African roots should be pouring their time and money into spreading the Gospel in Africa.
That is the ironic truth. Many African-Americans are shunning Northern urban areas and there has been a well documented “reverse migration” return to the South. Also wasn’t too long ago that Northern blacks referred to the South as “back home.” Politically correct tales serve agendas, but rarely correlate with reality.
And how exactly were the slaves freed y’all?
