INTERESTING.

It was feared that Bewitched would be rejected in the South because of the positive depiction of witchcraft on the show.

It wasn’t.

It was feared that Mr. Spock would be rejected in the South because he so resembled the Devil.

He wasn’t.

It was feared that the Star Trek episode, Plato’s Stepchildren, would be rejected in the South because of the interracial kiss between William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols.

It wasn’t.

In 1985, a lovely, young lady from Beverly Hills expressed to me her fear of attending Samford University in Birmingham because she had heard that in Alabama they hanged people, and ran over people with their cars.

They didn’t.

In 1987, a hairstylist in Houston asked me how we dealt with the Klan in Alabama—since the Klan supposedly ran everything there.

We didn’t know anybody in the Klan.

It is commonly believed, all over the United States, that Southern Americans are the most ignorant Americans.

Yet it seems that Americans outside the South are more ignorant about the Southern United States than any other region of the United States.

Interesting.

AMEN

“No people in the history of the world have been so misunderstood, so misjudged, and so cruelly maligned as the people of the South.”

Confederate General, Georgia Governor, and United States Senator

SOUTHERN AMERICAN
