Why Richmond, Why?!?
Some people say the name of one of our highways as "Po White" as it seems to be spelled that way but I always that it should be pronounced as "Pow Hite" since it sounds similar to Powhatan .

Its Po white. The native americans wanted to pay the white man back for killing them and robbing them of their 12 and 14 year old children for the sake of sex with Captain John Smith. Its Po white as in Po white trash or poor white trash if you are a proper Richmonder

It is Pow-Hite when correctly pronounced. Leave it to a Richmond idiot to not know how to properly pronounce it.
That's why it is "South of the James BY INVITATION ONLY"!
