Please Ben. You are not a Southroner nor have you walked in our shoes.
Very true, but I do have family and friends in Texas, Lousiana, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. And they are all damn proud to be Americans, and would, honeslty, think you were a nut!
Yes we have been and are being persuceted through suttle (and sometimes) subtle policies of cultural genocide/anhilation.
Hmm, any exmaples? How have you southerners been persecuted in the last 30 years or so?
My great-great-great Grandmamma was raped by a Yankee Colonel. She died giving birth to the child conceived of those relations.
Truly horrible, but taking revenge over that is just as stupid as the Prince here going after Muslims for taking Constantinople. Joe, all you can do is pray for her, and this criminal, but willing to murder for revenge, is not the Christian thing to do, in my personal opinion.
My family (and the families of many thousands of others) were pushed off our land by yankee forces.
Umm maybe in 1863! But now?! Come on! Why in the world hold grudges?! Why insist on dividing this country between "Yankees" and "Southerners"?! My God, as I said earlier where is the honor in segregating people? In murdering your fellow country men?
Even unto this day, we have been refused access to the family cemetary in North Carolina--where my ancestors, who were among the initial settlers of that area of North Carolina, were buried until the war
And we all know that is a valid reason to go start a war and kill them damn yankees!
