I've always wondered why people who accuse others of being ignorant, redneck, hillbillies, and racist based on merre latitude and longitude, never see that their accusations actually make them appear more ignorant than anything they could accuse others of being..Just a thought.
Furthermore, as a native North Carolinian, a NASCAR fan, and a Junior fan, I've always laughed at those who accuse me of being ignorant because I happen to have been born south of the Mason Dixon line, follow a sport that happened to start south of the Mason Dixon line, and follow a driver who happens to have been born south of the Mason Dixon line, as well. Granted, there are ignorant people who follow NASCAR, but ignorance is a universal trait. In my opinion, what makes one ignorant has more to do with what's inside and how they treat others, than it does with arbitrary facts like where one lives and what one likes.
Moreover, for the posters who refer to NASCAR fans as being dirty, flithy, racist hillbillies who drink lots of beer, burp, slober, and throw beercans--you've obviously never been to a NASCAR race. On average, NASCAR fans have more income per capita than any other sports fans,(much to my chagrin) it has become so business-driven than most of the fans (at least at Charlotte) look like they've just walked out of a business meeting, and I've seen various races, ethnicities, and nationalities co-mingle and cheer and jeer various drivers, as NASCAR fans and sports fans often do.
I've never seen a NASCAR fan throw a beer can, although I've seen a few throw some obscene gestures (but I've seen that in every corner of the globe, as well), I've never seen a NASCAR fan badger or harrass other races or ethnicities, and I've never seen a NASCAR fan come to the race wearing a straw hat, overalls, and playing a bango as if he or she walked out of a scene from Deliverance.
Frankly, I think the negative posters are hypocrites who condescendingly look down upon others because they actually believe negative stereotypes. Granted, all stereotypes have an element of truth, but not everyone is a stereotype! Moreover, I think they are subconsciously angry that a bunch of, as they would say, "hillbilly, rednecks from the south" have actually helped manifest one of the most popular sports in the world, one of the highest-grossing sports in the world, and increasingly, one of the most well-respected sports in the world, both from a business aspect and sports aspect.
But, thankfully, I believe everyone one can change!! There is hope!
Sorry for the long post, but I had alot to write!
