Life Options of Eastern Arkansas is a USDA (United States Dept. of Agriculture) sponsored program. They do assesements of incorporated cites and small towns to help with anything the program can provide.

Why are white people referred to plantation owners? I am white and I have NEVER owned a frickin plantation! Guess I missed out on that one.

Furthermore, it is extremely offensive. The constant comments about "plantation mentality" to refer to white people in general is RACISM. I promise you that I don't have this "mentality." Rather I feel that my mental state comes from the point of view of a poor, educated Delta resident.

I hope that everyone can move past hurtful racial slurs and see past color. Our community has a long way to go and racially charged comments and thoughts certainly impede the process!

I certainly agree with you. I am white too, never owned a plantation, and am certainly not racist. It greatly offends me, as well as others, to be labeled as 'plantation owners' or having a 'plantation mentality'....which quite frankly, is a racist remark! Therefore, the people who insist on continuing to use these slurs and complaining....well, if you are not 'chained' to where you stay, LEAVE!
