When was this? I don't really recall an era when "backwards white trash" had a significant bond with more functional whites.


Tell me.. Who would the average white man from let's say the 60's have rather sat next to and socialized with at a bar.. A poor white man or a black man. Maybe I'm wrong.. My instances are more from the 80's and witnessing upper middle class folks hunt and hang out with white trash types but in no way would a black man be allowed around the camp fire.

in a lot of circles, it was just (and, in some ways, still is) the opposite.

Posted by HailHailtoMichigan! Probably, but only because of demographics. How exactly can someone from New England or the upper midwest be racist when they live in a 95% white state?


Not sure.... but me, my white sister and her latino husband were nearly mob attacked in a bar in Iowa. When he walked in you would've thought a three eyed godzilla just pulled up to the bar. As soon as it was apparent that sis was with a person of color, shite hit the fan fast. Never would've happened in Louisiana. No one would've looked twice. Say what you want, but rural Iowa aint where you want to be black.

The average white man in the 60's would probably not have socialized at a bar with "backwards white trash" or Negroes. It wasn't a decison being forced upon people at the time.

Whites with money avoided crap white schools before they were integrated just as they avoided crap integrated schools. Those without money moved to a better district.

Honestly, I've never "hung out" with
"backwards white trash" or Negroes around a camp fire, except perhaps in the Army.

Perhaps I don't understand who you are calling "backwards white trash", IMHO simply being poor does not make one trash.

Sure society is more integrated and diverse, so a functional white person is more likely to come in contact with people they would previoulsy avoided under some circumstances.

I suspect you overly generalize about Iowa, BBTAIM is a Latino now a Black under contemporary standards?

My family is from Iowa. You have polar opposites there. Some are very racist. Some would go out of their way not to be. Unfortunately we ran into the former.

And naw, but i had already discussed latinos so i thought i'd throw out another color.

Regardless, been to a lot of bars in Texas and Louisiana with them, never even a stare. Certainly not mistreated and chased out of a bar by hating rednecks until we went to Iowa.

According to this I am a racist and that is not a bad thing.

I am not prejudiced according to these definitions.

My posts are not made without knowledge or based off of unreasonable feelings so by definition they are not prejudiced. In any post in which I point out the inequalities between certain races I am always sure to post scientific evidence backing up my claims.

Louisiana is probably as least racist a state as they come. We are whites and blacks living side by side.



whites and blacks also lived "side by side" in the antebellum south and in south africa under apartheid. those periods/regimes weren't racist either, huh?

This is exactly why I argue the prison population is not racist!

I'm not your bro.
California is full of racists - they're called liberal democrats. Seperating people into groups that are neatly labeled is what the left does and champions doing so because they stereotype and decide who they will tolerate and who they will not and it tends to be they are intolerant of those that do not think like they do.
