One of my neighbors, a retired teacher who grew up in rural North Carolina and lived/worked in New York for most of his life... and is black... said there are big differences between racism in the North and racism in the South.
We've had several long conversations on the topic, only after I've known him for years and both socialized and worked on volunteer projects together. His summation: "In the North, white people don't care how rich or successful black people are, as long as they don't move into their neighborhood. In the South, white people don't care how close black people are, they can even be room-mates in a mobile home; as long as there is never any hint that the black people are richer or more successful."
I know the bylaws of both clubs. My understanding is that even ChYC had the same policy until a few years ago, and that's one of the most welcoming clubs I know, but I have never seen the docs proving it.
Let's not go around pretending that a big chunk of southerners doesn't want things to be more like 1823 than 2023, even in Charleston. Let's remember: This bullshit peddler is Charleston's rep.
Mr. Moderator AKA Mr. Clean, Serious Question...I know you have Power to reject comments on this board so I am treading lightly. I just wonder, why is it that you have such a problem with Southerner's?
