Good Information

Greenbrier, TN

#23 Nov 8, 2012
I was born and raised in Greenbrier and I graduated from the schools there as well. I am 39 now and I will tell you what I remember. When I was young I would say 10 and under I remember a sign on the main road at each end of the town. It said something like "N****R dont let yourself be caught after dark or you will be hung" I remember wondering what it meant as we were not taught to hate or judge. The signs disappered somewhere during my mid teens. I remember hearing when I was in middle school that a young black person was going to come to our school but their barn was burnt.( I think it was rumor but who knows)My high school years 89-92 I saw the KKK and Nazi skin heads rallying in Springfield at the court house and they would be in Greenbrier at the grocery store but I never heard of anyone violently being hurt in Greenbrier. When I graduated we had 2 African Americans at our school and they graduated as well. Since 92 and on I have not scene any of the Klans in Greenbrier. It is now 2012 and my kids go to the schools here and there are less issues now. I think the biggest issue here is what size Deer you got (whose is biggest) Hunting is huge here. I hope the info helped if not then atleat you have some good history.

I've lived in Middle TN for most of my life. I happen to live in Greenbrier now, for the past four years. Yes, there is a strong presence of the Mason's club (Which is known to have ties to the KKK back in the day) and most of the old white men that attend the meetings are probably a tad prejudiced.
But my mom, who is 63, was raised in this city, and she has eluded to prejudices and racism floating around when she was growing up, but never anything overly hateful. I have never witnessed any racist slurs or the like since I've lived here.
The sad truth is that Greenbrier has received a very bad reputation as not welcoming to those of color. It's a country hick farm town like any other in the south, and there are bound to be a group of people that still fly the confederate flag like we're still in the civil war... but most of it has to do with heritage and very little with racism.

If you're looking to move to TN, I would tell you it's a great place to live, one of the most friendly cities I've ever visited is that of Nashville.
And yes, there are plenty of minorities living peaceably in this area. African American, Muslim, and Hispanic populations are very abundant. There is absolutely no reason to be scared of moving here.

Bottom line: You can't judge a region, or state for that matter, on what a few idiotic people might think or practice.
Apparently you know nothing of the Masons other then what you may have heard on tv, in which case you can't but much believe in anyway.

How is racism against Asians in Tennessee? What I mostly hear about racism is against blacks, but there must be racism against Asians, or other races as well.

Just an Demonic thing and the guy that started the KKK they say had many demons in him and some of the KKK members was afraid of him..Jesus is coming back to judge the hearts of man.
