Being from New Englang, born and bred, I was shocked at many things in Kentucky. I know thats not that far south, but still.
I have heard people I respected highly getting going about African Americans (especially during obama's election). Even bigger shock...They would rather vote for a "N." than a woman. Someone forgot to tell them That women aren't consider live stock any more.
I went to a Baptist church were the pastor never asked a woman to say prayers (aloud to the congregation) I asked a friend and she said the old way, woman do not talk, the husband is the boss. I was not a happy camper there. I tried to educate the woman. My husband told me I was going to be run of out town.
