My birth town where my family still live has not changed in 40 years. They just abolished slavery in February 2013. What a shame!

WOW. That's great. I think it's really cool that they did something so meaningful during black history month. I imagine your family provided 40 large buckets and a bridge card to their freed slaves.
Let's have a shout out to Ann's family!!!!

Mississippi was the last state to abolish slavery in the year 1995. They still have the mentality of owning them.
I had a slave back before we outlawed them in '95. I got rid of it, though, because I never could get it to work.

I know what you mean, about all they would do was sit on the porch and drink beer.
