I Wish I Had a Pic, but...

Where I live on the north side of Charlotte. there are 3 walmarts for us rich and famous people to chose from. My wife and I refer to the one further north as “redneck Walmart” (better sporting goods and automotive section), “mall Walmart” (bigger, newer, and cleaner than the rest), and “ghetto Walmart” (closest to the city, most likely one to see people walking around in shower caps and slippers or to hear someone screaming, but best international foods selection).

So today I went to ghetto Walmart at lunch. Not relevant to the story, but I couldn’t help but notice a really fat white pady wearing a BLM fist shirt on the way in.

On the way out as Im approaching my car, I see that the car next to me is the “Trumpest” car Ive ever seen. American flags on the windows, Trump stickers everywhere, and as I see the passenger seat, there is a seat cover with a Trump mask attached to it making it look like Trump is riding shotgun.

So I think to myself, this person must really have a death wish to fly this shit at ghetto Walmart. I want to get out of here quick so I don’t get caught in the inevitable driveby shooting.

Then I look at the driver, and it was a middle aged black woman.

I thought about giving her the thumbs up, but I was still suspicious that it might be some kind of trap or social experiment.

Long story short, race doesn’t divide us. Acquired neurosis and the victimization and manipulation of black people by white liberals does, but its always nice to see a glimmer of hope.

WHen my brother and I were high school aged, our family took a roadtrip from NJ down to NOLA....along the eay we drove through Mississippi to go to that casino in Biloxi.  We were on some backwoods single lane country road for miles and a pickup truck with a huge rebel flag, actual bullhorns on the grill, visible shotgun, 2 men in fucking overalls, hats, and chewing a stick or some shit

For miles we were worried about getting lynched by some racist rednecks or something.  Then we pull uo to the first traffic light in miles and it splits into 2 lanes.  the pickup truck pulls up next to us and it is 2 Black guys!  they gave us a friendly head nod, and our minds were kind of short circuited bc we didnt know about Black southern oride types until that day

Most of the racist people that live in The South are transplants from the north east and midwest.

Having grown up in NY and lived in the South over 20 years, I honestly feel the south is generally the less racist place. When its there, its out in the open, but it’s not a steady undercurrent that shadily impacts everything the way it was up north. All the black people in the south that I know who are angry haters of white people and BLM type activists are from the north. Everyone else is just cool with each other and normal. My wife and I both feel like people at ghetto Walmart are maybe nicer to us than at the other ones.

northerners have a chip on their shoulders that manifests itself in various negative forms, including racism

even back then, as a 15 yr old, i noticed that everyone, in general, was “nicer” (like most of us notice when we go there)

and we def ran into the stereotypical southern diner where the record skips as a family of brown looking Asian people entered the place when we made pit stops in other states…it was definitely more of an open “Wtf are these people here for”

although, I will say, seeing some of the shit other OGers say they grew up witnessing, like people regularly calling black people "niggers" or nursery rhymes using "nigger" is totally foreing to me

growing up here in North jersey, i never knew it as "nigger knocking" or "catch a nigger by the toe", etc...didnt know that "jig" was a bad word for black people etc

So much irony in such a short sentence.

You’d have to have lived in both places to know, because as mentioned above, its never mentioned on TV.

Not saying it’s not true.  Just pointing out that it’s a bit funny when someone says “I’m not a racist, it’s all of those other people from X that are”.

Southerners were living in relative and increasing harmony with black people long before black people started moving north and since, and northerners resented the influx of black people and architected systemic racism to harm them (most or all of which has been dismantled since) and cultivated actual hatred for them, and those attitudes are still alive up north, so black people are really angry and assume all white people are like that, and white people pretend to not be racist while being scared and hateful of black people and trying to keep them out of their neighborhoods.

It’s too complex a dynamic for people who think language and culture solely define racism, rather than equal rights and quality of opportunity, which is greater for a greater percentage of blacks in the south.

Major northern cities are mixed race and gentrified with people who migrate there for work, but every rural place and small or medium city Ive been to up north, there are few prosperous black people. I lived in Buffalo for 2 years, and the only black people there were poor and ghetto. When I moved to Charlotte, it was a breath of fresh air to see black people who were prosperous and happy and black and white people mixing effortlessly.

It’s just another case of how liberals are actual racists who use the cover of pretending they aren’t in order to trick and victimize black people further, while conservatives may be openly politically and culturally less sensitive, but still genuinely want equality and opportunity for all regardless of skin color.

That’s my observation and experience, at least.

No pics?

I can't jack to this

Raised in Memphis and Florida

Live in Connecticut now

The south is way more racist, overtly racist. 

The north talks the talk about integration until it is time to put subsidized housing in Fairfield or Westchester county, or Bridgeport gets their power turned on before Westport after a storm.

Right, northerners actually implemented and promote systemic racism while pretending to be on the right side of racists. Country rednecks sometimes use the n word. Which is more damaging?

Malcolm X understood and explained this to people.

Just lol at "sometimes use the n word" - you are just coping

Southerners implement just as much if not way more racism in drawing voting districts, education, justice system and social services than any northern city or state.

Honestly, I can count on one hand the times since Ive lived in Charlotte that Ive heard anyone use the n word, and I can only explicitly remember one. I was about 30 miles outside the city at a shadetree mechanic’s place. I was asking this kid about doing bodywork, and he says, “Its not hard, I dont mind doing it, it’s really just a lot of n-word work.”

In 25 years in Charlotte that is the only time I remember it being used.

On the other hand, when my son went to college in Erie, PA, he was shocked at the overt and regular use of the word among students who knew they were outside earshot of any. He came back from there very disillusioned with the north, since he has a lot of black friends.

In other words, people outside of metropolitan areas are more likely to use ignorant language without worrying about whether it bothers people or not, but the depth of racism in the north under the covers lives on strong by comparison. The south had a real reckoning with racism because it was out in the open, and the positive changes have been more real and honest.

Growing up in Brooklyn in the 70s and 80s, I heard the n word every day from white people.
