The Southern Upward Creep

August 16, 2016

For years, non-southern white liberals have been patting themselves on the back about how anti-racist they are all the while pointing their fingers at those horrible southern racists. 160516161540-chart-metro-area-income-gap-780x439 Not to say the south hasn’t and doesn’t have their share of racists, but look at you now you racist assholes.

But, I know how this works, just how Missouri’s geography was re-purposed and named the “South” to separate what was happening there from the good liberals, soon Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington will be called the South.  No one can make boudin, sweet potato pie, and iced tea like those Minnesotans.

Eventually, the proud pseudo-non-racist-racists will be pushed into a crowded corner in a Manhattan Whole Food’s bathroom (unisex, of course!) and attempt to justify their disparities in pay with no more geographical fingers to point away the blame.  Bastards.

Chart can be found here.

I should point out that it’s not just snark that compels me to highlight this reality.   It’s to shed a light on how many excuses and for how long people have been on the “not me” bandwagon.  It is you.  Yes it is.  You cannot just point at those filthy southerners and go on about your business as if it has nothing to do with you. Soon the light will expose the west, the northwest, the northeast and all the rest of the country that enjoyed dumping on the South and framing it as if racism was confined to that area.

    THANKS for this. I am in the upper Midwest and it is racist as FUCK here… while putting up this smug, BS “progressive” front. I saw the extreme segregation and police harassment of black people (especially black women) in Milwaukee firsthand and and it was dystopic to say the least. I will never forget delivering pizza and hot wings to a woman in an apartment with the smell of raw sewage and layers of cardboard on the floor, her kids watching TV on a bare mattress on the floor… as soon as I was in the “black” neighborhoods I could tell because the streets were all shitty and half the streetlights didn’t work… I am tired of the smug white men and their bullshit Band-aid “solutions” that do nothing (because failing to name the agents). men have failed at leadership a million times over; it’s time to put women in charge. 😀
