Most of what I get from the news these days, filled as it is with camera vids and off-the-record audio from the secret lives of white people, is that racism is alive and well in all sectors, especially anti-black racism (but not free of anti-white racism on the part of blacks, etc.).

Not to say the South doesn't have a particularly problematic history with race, especially anti-black racism, but we have to deeply absorb just how prevalent and far-reaching racism is wherever there are large populations of different groups, especially non-white groups living in some proximity to large populations of whites. Big cities, which tend to be most 'liberal,' also often have shockingly bad records where race and equality are concerned. Unless, as seems more and more the case, the larger urban areas have no blacks or drives them out (I am talking about you, Austin, Texas, '(skinless) blueberry in the tomato soup').

The human cognitive system is generally not that great at parsing out 'the race thing.' Many, many people cannot get past the first or second logical hurdle presented by the conundrum of what seems to be true about 'all those people' and the fact that thinking that way is rife with wrongheaded, cabbage-headed cognitive processing. On and on it goes.

Bleh ( I feel bad about posting this, as I assume everyone understands everything I offered...and yet I feel compelled to point out the obvious).

I appreciated it. It is insightful, and even if most people already intuitively feel it, it deserves to be verbalized.

I know! But to be fair, they were probably inspired by Southerners.

'Hey man, what's the most racist, unprofessional thing we can do? I mean, like if we were actual Southerners!!!!"
Because Chicago has always been so free of race problems.

Of course down south they would use creative Taxidermy to put their stuffed catch in a prized location at the lodge.

In other news in the weird world of Big John I was out in the country over the weekend and in the back woods met a crazy electronic genius who is also a hunter taxidermist who is making electronic instruments and stomp boxes out of taxidermy animals.

Like this but more artfully done.

I'd like a black drug dealer with a TR-808 in his chest.

If the drug dealer is a "meth dealer" There may not be space for both a full size TR-808 and an internal power supply. So you may end up having to use a external "Wall Wart" power supply.

But I am sure a unit like that would put a big pillow of sound with a solid bottom

Great time today in The South today in the Truman Show set of Seaside when we overheard a Hillbillies with Money couple whisper "I can't believe they let Hispanics in here" while ordering.

Context, I've been told by friends in Atlanta that the Realtors in Seaside don't sell to Blacks and Hispanics. The place is so white we started a "Spot the Other Minority" game. One day zero... even the service workers all look like A&F ad people. This is the American South and I'm sure Vermont has more minorities...

Is this sort of shit - I mean privatised communities in the South that segregate via "legal means" - normal?

And WTF is with all the Confederate Flags?!?!? "As a foreigner" what I don't get is that surely it should be regarded as treason to fly one of those right? They fucking lost a Civil War

The South has a lot of whiney loser babies who are still pissed 150 years after the fact that they are no longer allowed to own human beings. And America in general, north and south, has a bunch of assholes who like to fly the treason flag to show their support of a racial caste system.

Gramsci talks about the year 2015 in the southern United States. numberthirty talks about 1861 in the North. I don not expect him to understand how these two things are not even remotely the same.

Could also be that a Southerner is proud to have come from a bloodline that dealt with a complete savaging on behalf of Union troops and rebuilt their economy/society while also contributing to the American arts canon.


The southern United States did not rise, and even today, does not survive by its own hand. It has never really learned to exist and be self-sustaining without that olde-tyme subsidy of slaved, human labor. The largest welfare states (states that receive more money from the federal government than they pay to it), exist in the South. This fits the trend. In its politics, we can see a habit that veers toward serfdom. For all it's posturing as a "rebel" stronghold, time, and time again, we see Southern culture pay fealty to wealth and power.

Without picking a side...

The Great Chicago Fire happened six years after The Civil War. In addition to most everyone being able to tell you about it, there are a shitload of fire hydrants all over the city.

That fire was not set intentionally.

This was done on purpose at roughly the same time, and almost no one can tell you about it. Hell, people say "Just get over it." Better yet, they call the folks who were imprisoned there "Loser babies".

I know you aren't picking sides or anything, but...

I don't think anyone really cares. The institutions these men were fighting to uphold no doubt paled in comparison to what was going on in those camps. Perhaps getting a taste of one's own medicine?
