New York Congressman Charles Rangel, a Left-wing and anti-White politician from Harlem, recently stated his hatred of Southern culture in a television news interview, saying:
New York is different and more progressive than a lot of areas in other states, and some of the Southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome.
Can readers imagine the US media’s howl if a White Southern official said something like this about the culture of Harlem or Detroit? We would surely never hear the end of it until they were drummed out of office. Yet, where are the demands for Rangel’s resignation for his bigoted statement?
ANTI-SOUTHERN BIAS PERVASIVE IN USA
A recent scientific study revealed that non-Southern children in the US acquire from the culture around them a strong bias against Southern-speaking people at a young age. A Southern-speaking woman was stripped of a victory on the Wheel of Fortune, a popular US television game show, for speaking English in her native dialect. Southerners saw some ugly anti-Southern bias during the recent college football championship. Hollywood has also produced two anti-Southern films (one of which glorifies violence against Southerners) in recent months. Just a few days ago Rush Limbaugh, the most listened to talk radio host in the United States, argued on his program that the US Left wants to ‘finish off’ the South. We can see that on this Limbaugh was correct – at least in the case of Charles Rangel.
Why should Southerners want to be part of a Union where they are hated and where people like Charles Rangel, who openly says that their culture must be ‘overcome,’ write the laws under which they live? Millions of Southerners do not. Polls show, for instance, that half of Georgia Republicans want independence from Charles Rangel’s Union.
