Peace and Blessings Brother Cedric Denson ...
i'm finding it difficult to answer this question, as i don't agree with its premise.
was this the intent?
Are you from America?
I ask because usually the only people who still believe the South is more backwards or racist than the North are people from other countries who's only knowledge of America is what they've read in history books.
Most people from here know better.
Some of the most progressive cities (Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston, New Orleans) are in the south.
They talk a little slower and are more methodical but in no way are they more ignorant.
Brother Cedric ... i don't think i looked at it the wrong way ... just didn't understand it.
it's all good though.
Someone once told me that all Southern Black folk are the same ...
at least all those South of Canada
Reread the post. He wasn't asking; he was passing on a question that somebody else asked.
Did you read at the end where he also said:
"So I ask the question once again (In the exact form it was asked):
WHY ARE SOUTHERNERS SO IGNORANT AND NORTHERNERS SO PROPER?"
"By the way, just because my brothas down here in the South are not cooperating, does not mean that I will give up on him. I am not here ONLY because I WANT to be here; I am also here because GOD wanted me to here. I go wherever GOD takes me. So I will keep pushing and trying, and eventually they will come to their senses, and realize that it will take a village to raise a child."
Obviously brutha Ced thinks the south needs a little more attention.
But perhaps I'm confused about the entire way this entire thread was laid out.
Do YOU think the South is more ignorant, intolerant, or less sophisticated than the North?
Thanx for breaking it down for me brutha.
But I'm still confused as to why you originally asked:
WHY ARE SOUTHERNERS SO IGNORANT AND NORTHERNERS SO PROPER?
Was it meant to be rhetorical, meant for discussion on regional differences, what?
Warning this is going to be controversial!
I dont think it is so much of a north or south issue. Some people just ignorant in general. Its important that you deal with these people correctly.
"When people are ignorant be intellegent when you put them in check because when you act ignorant you get treated that way."
We must elevate our level of understanding as a people to counter act the ignorance and the hate...
