There was once a KKK rally in the town in New Hampshire where my parents had a lake house; it happened because the first black family ever had moved into town. This was...2001? Maybe 2002, but couldn't have been much earlier/later than that.

It's kinda awesome that the people flying that flag are squashing the whole notion that it was a "southern pride" thing.

I'm afraid of Americans.

That's an offensive statement there bub. The South is a beautiful place, full of good people (take a look at the way Charleston handled the Church massacre), the laid back demeanor, and as mentioned, great food. Oh, and the landscape. The beach, the mountains, the lakes, the swamps, the old country roads, it's great down there. I miss it.

That's roughly equivalent to believing Westboro Church represents the common Christian attitudes on homosexuality: it simply isn't true.

Everyone north or south knows a dozen dumbshits on tv aren't representative of much of anything, but you gotta keep the narrative going so do-nothing white leftists will have something to pat themselves on the back about (while still avoiding minorities like the plague).

I'm a sweater. Despite being born there I am incapable of functioning there. Its a sad state of affairs. Forced from my homeland to avoid the vapors.

Calling people pussies because they don't like hot or cold weather is really dumb

Disagree. I dont care if you like or dislike any specific kind of weather. It's the bitching about it that leads you to be mocked.
