The South

A couple of interesting perspectives on The South, a geographic area near and dear to my heart, having been born in Kentucky, married in New Orleans, graduated from North Carolina, and currently living in Tennessee. The South as a culture has taken a beating since the election, painted red with the anger of liberals and the joy of conservatives both. It’s no secret which side of the line upon which I fall, but way down deep I keep believing that the South’s reputation for bigotry, hate, and fundamentalism is simply a public face or mask, and that in private the hospitality and warmth of the people is the real story.

But I really wish that we could get rid of the fucking mask.

The South vs. The South.
