I lived & worked in South Carolina for 16 years, after living in Indiana for 21 years and working there for another 4, so I am speaking from many years and 1000s of conversations and relationships worth of experience. I've seen both the modern, advanced, cosmopolitan aspects of both states & their inhabitants, and the red neck, racist, xenophobic, backwards aspects of both states. When I stumbled across this photo yesterday, I thought "oh, how wonderful! a whole family together on an outing!". "It's about heritage" my fellow South Carolina citizens used to say. Yep, a 'heritage of hatred'. You want to understand why so many Americans HATE President Obama SO MUCH, but they don't articulate a valid, factual reason why? See below. Amen, brother.
