Pathetic. Simply pathetic. NOTHING ever changes in N Carolina; that why I moved to Louisiana. Oh, it's here too sure but not near as bad. Pathetic.

You can't change history. You can change maps but that doesn't mean you change what people call a place. When we had our house built my wife had them design a Parlor. It says "Parlor" on the blueprint but we call it a den. On the blueprint the bathroom is labeled "Water Closet" I would rather puke big green chunks that call it a water closet.

More like "carryovers"; keeping the tradition alive. And, again, pathetic.

When I went to school they taught us that there were 4 races on earth:(1) White or Caucasian,(2) Black or Negro (3) Yellow or Asian (4) Red or Native Indian. I don't see why anyone should object to those 4 races. What do you want to call them if not those terms? Everybody, black and white knows Bea Colson is as batty as they come. She had dementia years ago and it's getting worse. All she wants to do is stir up trouble.

We actually have a 5th race--White Liberals. The garbage of the white race who has elevated themselves above all, in their own mind, and an enemy of all.

Have you ever heard the story of how N!ggorhead Creek got it's name. There was this black family by the name of Jackson that lived and sharecropped a farm between Marshville and New Salem. They got their drinking water from a spring on the creek and they washed their clothes in the creek. There was the old man, his wife named Sadie, one teen age boy and two younger boys. The old man got drunk one night and killed Sadie. He was scared the law would come get him when he sobered up. He cut Sadie's head off and threw it in the creek and buried the body under his hog pen. The reason he cut the head off of her was he still loved her and wanted to look in the creek and see her. People would take their horses to drink from the creek and some saw Sadie's head bobbing up and down and it scared them so bad they took off. I never did see it but when I was in scouts we used to go looking for it.
