The only place that I can find crackling today is, in one of the 7-11 types that have them in little bags, but they still make good bread!
Yeah, most people have never seen a mule walk around all day turning the wheels that mashed those stalks of cane, and on to the the kettle or pans where they would cook it until it turned to syrup! Of course, some of the men would get some of that juice and make what we called in South Ga.,"cane buck", and it would blow the top of your head off!
My grandpa used to say he wanted a syrup and biscuit in each hand when he died so he could sop his way to the promised land. I have a great source for real cracklings at my local butcher. Until a few years ago we made syrup in my grandpa's old kettle on my home farm and people would come from all over to make it a big party. We even had a band playing, and fresh home made biscuits at our cane grinding. My sons say those are some of their best memories.

Ever heard of Ken Hamblin? He`s a conservative African American living in America and telling his point of view as a noted radio talk show host and novelist on the status of what he calls "the black myth." He believes in the American dream, and that anyone can seize it no matter their color.
According to his biography at Copy Ed 1/22/02 different than below www.hamblin.com , he believes the word "black trash" means "if there`s white trash, then it follows that there can be black trash. The difference is that we`ve allowed this sick culture of gangsta rap, drugs, gangs and welfare to be glorified by some as the only `authentic` black American culture," he said."
Errrr, got anything else?
I wish you all could have known Mr. Pompy M..... He raised a large family by hard labor and sheer determination. He left a legacy of a man driven by Christian ethics and conservative principals enabling him to built his own home, farmed his own land, and worked on other jobs to make the cash for his family's survival. His children followed in his footsteps, one became a minister and 2 others became teachers. There is even a road named in the honor of this black conservative by his white/black neighbors and friends. He touched my life, and I shall never forget him.

I still ask you the question. What problems do you have with the man? His opinions of ghetto blacks?
Now tell all of us, what does the term "racist" means to you.
I mean there are:
Segregationists
Bigots
Prejudiced people
Racialists
Can you tell me the difference between the listed?
Naw, naw, you just can't lump everyone into one basket, so describe each one for us.

As a Yankee who moved to Atlanta some time ago I have to admit that some things take a while to sink in. I've learned that if I use my traffic finger some people see it as MORE offensive than the reason I'm using it (like say, cutting me off or nearly causing me to be killed). I've also found that there is indeed some resistance to change that can border on ridiculous. If I tell someone their steam table is not hot enough and the food they serve is going to kill someone, I don't want to hear "we've been using it for years, it's fine just like it is". Or "you're just saying that because you're a Yankee".

And I have to get used to hearing my own children adopting local lingo and accents no matter how well I teach them to speak. One of them can turn it on and off like a switch (usually for yard sales).

On the issue of racism I will still state that I rarely hear about it from white people around here, but I hear it rather often from black people. The hatred of whites is very obvious and the city is littered with monuments to that hatred. Oh sure, the "Civil Rights Era" was necessary and a great deal of injustice was finally worked out. But the momuments don't really serve as healing reminders at all. They are just icons of how SOME white people did SOME horrid crap and now ALL white people are to be blamed for all eternity.

I'm just a rural upstate New Yorker with family that goes back to the Union army, you know, the one that ultimately defeated the Confederates and freed the slaves. But living down here I have learned that even the white people who brought an end to slavery are hated simply because of their color. I was never called a racist until I moved to Atlanta.

With that in mind I often wonder what's the point? This clown from California is a perfect example of the kind of mindless hatred of whites I run into around here. So how can this be reconciled? It can't. Blacks around here have been raised on a steady diet of hating whites for many decades now. It doesn't matter that MOST of the whites around here have nothing to do with slavery or the Civil Rights era damage. They have white skin, so they are marked for hatred.

I invite anyone to tell me how this can be "fixed". Everyone but the fool from the left coast. All he wants to do is play games and hurl feces like a zoo monkey. I've been called a "racist" so many times by that idiot that the word has virtually no meaning for me anymore. It has even made it a bit easier for me to brush it off when I hear it in Underground or 5 Points or on Marta. Some people hate me for being white. I won't be changing my color any time soon for people like that.

And I personally think fried green tomatoes are pretty gross. But what do I know? I'm a Yankee!

lighteredknot, what are you planting this spring?
I'll just bet you'll plant tomatoes, so when this summer comes, you'll have fried green tomatoes! They taste best when fried in bacon grease.
I'm planting eggplant as always, I love them sliced, breaded and fried, and I also like them in a casserole that my wife fixes with two kinds of cheese. Yummy!
I love the Habanero,Cayenne, and Cowhorn hot peppers. I also grow the red, yellow and green bell peppers.
I use sheets of black plastic to cover the entire garden, and cut holes to set the plants, that way, the moister is slow to evaporate. I've done it for around 25 years now, so I never have to worry about any weeds.
Hope you've gotten started.
Hummmmm, I wonder if out on the West coast have they ever heard of "Sawmill gravy", or "red eye gravy"?
I guess you know I own farms. We plant corn, peanuts, and cotton. I plant tomatoes, butter beans, squash,cucumbers, Mississippi crowder peas, okra, and rattle snake pole beans at my home garden. My gardening has been curtailed because of a head on collision I survived. I have tomatoes and pole beans in the ground now.

One of my best friends is from up state NY. BTW, Southerners will eat just about anything fried. I guess fried green tomatoes are an acquired taste, never ate any until I was an adult, and I love 'um now.

Discussing gardening in a post infuriates the nut. More evidence of his hate, low IQ, and insanity. Bless his little heart.

I like fried green tomatoes. They're great with the standard breakfast of fried or scrambled eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns, taters, or grits. The "nut" doesn't like "plain" old ordinary "country bumpkin" food though, he would much rather sit down to a plate full of monkey brains garnished with Obammy arugula.

Here in the South, there is a thing called "Southern Culture" that includes all races. If you're old enough, you can remember when you were told to respect the elderly, and to say "yes mam and no mam". You opened the doors for the ladies, and pulled the chair out for here to sit down. You were expected to act like you were civilized, and try to use the proper English, because you represented your family. You attended Sunday School, and was expected to. You were happy to go to grandma, or auntie, where you were served tea cakes, and lemonade.A Fourth if July included men digging a hole in the ground about the size of a grave, and burning dried oak wood all day on the third, and by nightfall, you had a hot bed of coal.
As a kid, you were happy to go to the small local store, where you either bought a can of potted mean, or a ten cents slice of "rat cheese" with a ten cent box of saltines. Other goodies included, buying a bag of "Tom's Peanuts, and pouring the entire bag into a six ounce bottle of Coke.Other things consisted of buying an RC Cola, and a "Moon Pie".
Saturday was a day to go to the movies and watch Johnny Mack Brown, Roy Rogers, Zorro, Will Bill Elliot,Flash Gordon , and many serials.
On school days, when you arrived home from school, you were expected to change shoes and clothes, because if you lived in the rural area, there were chores to be done.
There are many things about the South many transplant don't understand mainly, because they never ask.I'm proud to be from the South.
Just my two cents worth.
So except for cooking a pig in the ground - we prefer a whole beef turning on a spit - what is so uniquely "Southern culture" about that?

It was the same on the High Plains, rural Midwest, and in the Border States.

Visit South Texas and you can sample this almost anywhere. I like beef brisket the way you described it cooked.

bwah hahahahahaha. "Hotlanta, done tow you a nice a$$hole, sofa queenie. Damn it Jim.

Looks like all these Whites like the aforementioned douchebag known as "icouldusesomehel p" feel Blacks need people like him to fight their battles for them. People like hel p spammer boy look at Blacks and other nonwhites as their pets to be used. Guarantee you hel p spammer boy lives in a mostly, if not entirely all White neighborhood and hardly ever even deals with Blacks, much less help them out. Complete phony douchebag is the hel p spammer boy.

I remember the great war, that there civil one. Boy we used to send them boys up the hill to die by the thousands. Wasn't no use to it, we knowed we was a gunna lose. We just loved to holler. Our women folk liked the war too. They knew us southern boys would go a runnin into the woods, scared as can be, when the real soldiers from the North a came to burn down the towns. See them women folked loved them Yankee boys. They was real men who could do em up right!
Anyways, I miss the futility of it all, the dumb flag, and all the excuses for being born losers. Most of all I miss the hootin and a hollerin...
Them Yankees alreadt know they kicked us to hell and back. Could do it again, any time they wanted.
After the most recent economic downturn, a flood of people migrated to the Sun Belt and out of states like NY, Massachusetts,
and California (NYT, 2011). Seems they have moved past the 1860s.

I did it years ago. Moved to Atlanta for the money and cheaper cost of living. I was also getting tired of snow and the way NY was reaming me with taxes. I've met a few people here who seem to hang on to a longing for the confederacy, but none of them experienced it. So their perspective is skewed by whatever they have heard or read about it. But those people aren't the norm here, they're an odd exception. They're easy to spot as well. They proudly fly the old state flag. The one that was replaced without a vote because Georgia wanted to shed the confederate emblem and modernize their profile a bit.

I guess you'll always have misinformed morons who think ALL Georgians are rednecks who want to own slaves and drink Mint Juleps on the front porch swing. In nearly a decade I have run into less than a dozen of that sort. Most of the people around here carrying a chip about the confederacy are black. That's just a fact of life around here. The Hispanic people around here don't seem to give it a thought. Neither do the people in Marietta who run that EXCELLENT Trinidadian restaurant. Some people adapt and modernize and some don't. I had to when I moved here.
