So, May the 8th is the day North Carolina voters decided that taking away an individuals civil rights was ok. I know most aren’t surprised since it’s the south but that’s actually what bugs me. I get it. The south does have more conservative, “old school” thinkers. But it was a hell of a turn out against amendment one also. No one is looking at that.
I’m tired of the insults from just being southern. Do these people not realize they are just as bad as those who voted for the bigotry? Immediately after the vote was called I saw the typical “hick,” “inbred,” “screwing our cousins” crap. Really people? What are you, five? It does nothing to help our cause and makes you look like an ignorant ass. Don’t confront hatred with hatred.
There are a lot of damn fine people down here and it’s getting old having to defend that fact. Be rational, not “knee jerk” responsive.
