The majority of "smart" people have left southeast kentucky.Those that are left are basicly satisfied with what they dont have or are hereditary lazy. Others have never been past corbin or middlesboro and dont even know there is a difference. The people being pretty much uneducated with little motivation to change are easy to take advantage of and have accepted their fate. Land speculators came in 100 years ago and bought up our mineral rights, then took the money with them when they went back to New York or Texas or wherever they came from. The money from our minerals being gone is what condemmed the region to poverty, not the loss of the jobs digging it for someone else. Just my opinion and Im just an uneducated barely motivated hillbilly too.
