I moved here to Northeastern North Carolina about 3 years ago from Virginia. I havent experienced this much racism since I was a young child in the early 70's. I never had any idea that North Carolina still carried so much Racism. Not only are they still Very active in racism but their local Government Deffinitely continues to support it?
I just cant believe that NC has made no effort to change race relations. Especially with me living within 5 miles of the VA line. Its so hard to believe on a Daily Basis how much it is still supported by the local people and the local Government. Ive expressed to others, that if they would like to see what this Country's race relations were like 100 years ago... Just visit North Carolina. I would love to become part of an organization that was willing to improve the race relations here.
Shame on North Carolina!

I remember in the 70's traveling south to Florida and passing through Rocky Mount NC we were greeted by a huge billboard with a white knight on a white horse announcing: "Welcome to North Carolina. This is Klan country. Help fight integration and communism."

Nice place... In encountered sufficient racism in other Southern states, but NC was the only one announcing it loudly for all to see.

Now tell us some of the experiences you had with "racism" on a day to day basis.
We're all ears.
For some strange reason, I get the feeling you would get "enjoyment" if I shared my Negative experiences with you. I will not continue to feed into the problem. I prefer to spend my time Finding a "Solution".
I will let you use your imagination.
