Is there a link between racism and abortion? Let's all judge for ourselves by exploring the web-site of Life Dynamics Incorporated and watching the DVD Maafa 21!!!

The Poor White

Historians have long been at pains to dispel the myth that antebellum white society in the South was divided into two classes, planters and poor whites. In 1860 D.R. Hundley wrote Social Relations in Our Southern States, in which he divided the white South into seven social ranks ranging from "The Southern Gentleman" to "The Poor White Trash." The members of each group are distinguishable not so much by financial affluence (because at the extremes of each is some overlap), but by a certain quality of bloodline which manifests itself in manners and physical characteristics. Of the gentleman Cavalier, for example, who represents near-perfection on all accounts, Hundley states, "to begin with his pedigree, then, we may say, the Southern Gentleman comes of a good stock," and "besides being of faultless pedigree, the Southern Gentleman is usually possessed of an equally faultless physical development" (Hundley,27-28.) He is on average six feet tall, is graceful and athletic, and possesses, in all, a physique which unites firmness and flexibility. This is meant to be contrasted with his negative image, The Poor White Trash, who is descended from Celtic criminals deported to America. He is bony and lank, with a "sallow complexion, awkward manners, and a natural stupidity or dullness of intellect that almost surpasses belief" (Hundley,264.)
