The South is the most all-american region of the US and has a rich culture, but negr0s and white liberals try to make it seem like the south was just slavery and that's it. Most people who owned slaves were rich, not the poor scots-irish farmers or "rednecks" who are wrongfully associated with slavery.

why are you people so ignorant of the south?

You know, the south is kinda just starting to experience immigration more as time go by, so a lot of the south has alwasy been black, white, and Native American first. Florida is the only south eastern state to have had a larger latin population, not Georgia or Alabama, but we are now. The thing is, the slaves were brought in on the southern coast, and lynchings, rape and racist murders happened mainly in the south, their are old spirits here. The south is ground zero for the inforcement of racism, slavery, and partly sexism. Seperate bathrooms, civil rights movements, and a whole list of things could answer this question. Our culture in the south is very close minded to excepting other people, who are not traditional in a way at times, in the older generation too, its changing faster now, because the older generation is dying out and mindsets are changing. A lot of white americans and black americans look at people who are not our ethnic groups as some type of invader, not all, but a lot, because it always been just white and black. The south is all american in every sense, it shows you what racism is like, old money, and how to make it if you work hard.

Why are YOU so ignorant of the south? The fact is that south became a SEPARATE part of America due to its own actions to keep a wicked system of slavery and oppression going

oooo oooo is it because as bad as the colonies wanted to be free from the Brits, they still wanted to keep thier slaves.
And that only slaves from nothern states were fighting for freedom, while the ones in the South would stay Salves

Rednecks are usually the dumb ones, just like on Topix. Talking all kinds of rubbish about blacks.

They perhaps were the one who lynched blacks in the South. They composed they lynchmobs for the most part. Logic, since they can't reason with logic.

Hopes this makes sense to that senseless brain you have.

The South and parts of the Midwest represent what american culture truly is, which is White Conservative culture. This whole "melting pot" idea is something that was forced on us in recent times, I don't feel like I'm in America when I'm in some Puerto Rican ghetto, I feel like I'm in a slum in a third-world country.

Northern slaves were even exempt from Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Furthermore, captured Southern slaves on the Mississippi River were forced to work on the plantations as slaves for the United States Army, growing cotton for Northern factories, rather than being set free. Also, during the War, just as many Union soldiers owned slaves as Confederate soldiers. Is the U.S. flag a symbol of slavery because the North owned slaves during the War? If not, then neither is the Confederate battle flag a symbol of slavery. How could the War have been fought over slavery when both sides had slaves?

White conservative culture does not exist in the Dominican Republic where you were born. Most Dominicans have African ancestry and it is clearly evident in 90% of Dominicans. The DR is one big ghetto by your own standard. It is hypocritical of you to find the term "melting pot" as offensive coming from a mulatto nation.
