The summation of an absurd article: “Still, we would do well to remember the troubling historical links between Southern beauty queens and racial politics, even when the winner lives in Brooklyn.”

One should remember that it was white Christian women who volunteered to transport black women to their jobs that desegregated the public bus systems.

This story by the HATE filled NYT is almost unbelievable.

What possible good can a race frothing, slobbering piece of filth like this do in a world already being driven to separation by a racist President.

This story is vomitous and the Blaine Roberts POS who wrote it should apologise for being born.

Hey, Dumb Byaches at the NYT!

The RATZ party didn’t EVEN like that n!!!ers got 40 acres and a mule. They were SOOO incensed that they started the KKK! To KILL republicans and recalcitrant blacks.

But hey, the thing they HATED THE MOST, WAS WHEN THE PUBBIES GAVE ALL THE BLACKS SHOTGUNS! OH SH!!T!

That’s when the RATZ began to BELIEVE IN GUN CONTROL.

Hey RATZ, think I’m lying?

You pig bastards are the party of treason.

I would cheat.

This guy has a mental problem ,anyone who is so filled with racial hate that he would write such a story is not playing with a full deck.

This is the type of reporter the NYT has on their staff. The sooner they go out of business the sooner this trash wil be on the unemployment line.

Hey, Reb,

What we have here is a fear and loathing of anything white.

Mostly, its about “white envy.” After all, whitey walked on the moon.

Most of the troubled clan still live in mud huts with banana leafed roofs.

Gotta hate whitey for his achievements. Its only natural.

The author, Blain Roberts, is a terrible writer. She’s one of those liberal grads from Princeton with graduate from UNC Chapel Hill (very liberal), and probably guilt-ridden over her Southern heritage. Apparently she is at Cal State Fresno, another liberal bastion.

Bet she’s anti everything, rolls her eyes at anything quaintly Southern just to show how modern and progressive she is, and identifies with those-oh-so-smart-academic types who live in the false world of ivory towers. She would probably choke if she ever got a copy of “Southern Living” or “Garden and Gun.” And, I’ll bet dollars to donuts she was NEVER a sorority girl! :)

Oh, she will.

At some point, when her family is involved, she will come to the realization that she has been lied to, and filled with propaganda pablum.

At that point, things will change. They always do.

I might offend a few here, but here it goes..........

Southern Women are just more beautiful than most, that's why they win, it has nothing to do with this Jim Crow nonsense put out here.

Here in Texas, God bless’em all..... the long and the short and the tall.

Inner Beauty counts and shines through, which most “Southern belles” I've met have that and strength of character and conviction.

The old saying, “You can always tell a Texan but you can't tell’em much” applies to the women throughout my life. While it can be trying at times, I wouldn't have it any other way.

And WHY is that? Why do you HATE white women so much? What do they do that frightens you so much? What is SO worrying about that peaceful expression?

Maybe I misinterpreted your response, please explain.

“She would probably choke if she ever got a copy of ... “Garden and Gun.””

I did for a while. They’d get letters to the editor telling them to drop the “Gun” content. The editor, clearly a lady, would reply with an eloquent paragraph amounting to “shove it”.

In my experience “Well bless your heat” means you are about to do something stupid.

My dad used to say “Do what you think’s best” meaning the same thing.

Example:

“Little Jimmy put wings on the lawn mower and is about to jump of the roof with it”

Southern Belle says “Well Bless your heart”

Southern Man says “Do what you think’s best”

Nothing racist here.

In some contexts, “bless your heart” is feminine southern politesse for “you ****ing idiot.” at a minimum, it means you’re to be pitied.

Words to watch out for.

Three southern belles were sitting on the porch fanning themselves one hot and humid day.

The first belle says to the other two “you know, my daddy, he loves me so much, he bought me these thoroughbred horses”.

“That is just wonderfull” says the second southern belle. “How nice” says the third.

The second belle says to the other two “ you know, my daddy, he loves me so much, he bout me a nice porche car”.

“That is just wonderful” says the first belle. “How nice” says the third.

And so they fanned themselves for awhile longer until the first and second belle thought to ask the third “doesn’t yo daddy love you at all?

“Why of course he does” says the third belle, “ in fact my daddy loves me so much he sent me to the finest finishing school”.

“Finishing school?” Cried the first two belles, “and just what good is that.”

“We’ll” said the third belle, “I learned how to get along with unsavory people at finishing school”

“Oh really? And what kind of learning is that” blustered the first two belles.

” the most important thing I learned” said the third belle, “was to say ‘how nice’ instead of ‘F—k You”

In New York City, all the fine people ride the subway and when they have to crap, they go between the cars and drop their pants. I suppose this is considered to be performance art in the big horse apple.
