    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.

    Are you kidding me? There really are black and white proms for the same school? I'm feeling sheltered now ...

    I would be interested to know the specific school, town and location of where this happend, if you would not mind verifying your statement please. Was this in the 40's 50's or now?

    I am just curious about the history of this? Not trying to prove anything.

    When someone stands up for whats right they are get labled bigots,bible thumpers and the like. I live in Tennesse and supported Obama on most issues You will never agree with all politicans 100% We're not all racists bigots. Auntie Bree if you want to know about the south ask someone who lives there instead of believing the gossip.   Bigots are everywhere so dont lump them in one place please.  It would be just as unfair to place all the murders and gang members in California and New York when they run rampant all over the country
