I am from the south. I do not hate the south. It is important that you understand this before we move forward in this dialogue. I am a fan of the southern lifestyle and the southern culture. But I am not a fan of certain aspects of the culture and I certainly am not interested in the torrid and putrid history of my home state. So here it is. I am form the state of Mississippi. This is my home state and I have been in this state for nearly 47 years. I have seen many different things come and go but I must admit that I am not a huge fan of the state. Some people will argue for their states superiority but I am not one of those. So why do I hate my state so much? There are many different things but allow me to expound on this idea a bit further.
First, Mississippi is the home place of the Ku Klux Klan. Better known as the KKK, this is one of the most despicable and nasty groups in the world. This group hates African American people and they hate several other ethnic groups. I am ashamed to admit that they are from the state that I call home. I further hate the idea that so many of the people here accept this idea and they allow the group to continue. I also hate the fact that so many people here are high school drop-outs. This is why the poverty rate is so high here. The people are not well educated and it pulls down the society. We need to do something about this.
