Then why in the hell are the most racist people I have encountered in my life from the northeast? (with the exception of one f*cked up guy I met in Tupelo, MS on a sales call that used the "n" word in direct reference to his warehouse employee :()

People point to the confederate flag debate as this huge battle to keep whitey on top of things but Southerners, both black and white, are so much more tolerant than most northerners I have met. Particularly people from Boston.

I'm with you on this one. The most racist and ignorant people I ever met have been from NY and they make no qualms about letting you know how they feel. But god forbid you fly a flag...

The most racist people we ever met were up north. PA was really bad, and Michigan.

No one believes it, but we sold more rebel flag merchandise up north than we did at Mule Day's in Johnston County. Up north is the only place we were asked if we had swastika flags, tees, or stickers.

One of the most racist sports is hockey, which if I do recall is a northern sport. Ask any black guy about playing hockey up north and in Canada. They will tell you about the slurs they hear from the stands and opposing players. It's like Jackie Robinson type hate, but current day.

But yea, a small minority of poeple down here want to fly a flag so southerners are the haters and racists.

Ohio is one of the biggest shitcan states in the country and I'm surprised they're not better known for it.

As a former northerner I can tell you there is just as much racism up north as in the south. Boston is probably the most racist city in America.

I've met people from the South who are racist... people from the north who are racist... the mid west... the west coast...

the only thing they had in common?

they were racist, pretty much. I've stopped expecting people from one region of the country or another to be a certain way.

Unfortunately, hatred of people that are different is a worldwide phenomon.

Probably the most blatant I personally witnessed was in Bahrain between Sunni and Shia, Arab and Iranian, Bahraini and third world workers.
