And why is it bad to be from one, as in the slur "holler trash"?
Didn't Loretta Lynn grow up in a holler?
And why do West Virginians put themselves and each other down so damn much?

Does Loretta Lynn still live up a backwards white trash holler ? No, she used her talent and ability to raise herself up to a higher standard of living. West Virginia is ranked 1st in everything bad and last in everything good. That is why we criticize and make fun, and with good reason.

Many of us live in hollers and it's perfectly fine. It's just the yankee jewish crowd who doesn't like it. Live loud and proud. None of these cowards dare open their mouth in person.
