I am from Minnesota and came here with my husband who is in the Army.
I have never been in the south except for vacation trips to Florida and Myrtle beach SC. I expected to find racism still very strong here and am surprised that although I was right, it's the exact opposite of what I thought.

Trust me, I have been a fireman for years in Columbus.
