The text to this video showed up on my iPhone, but not onine via my computer. Looks like a very important story and I hope y'all will spend a moment watching what the folks in Monroe, LA has to say. I bet CNN didn't expect such reasoned replies to their questions. Maybe someone can locate the text.
Thanks for posting that, it was really good.
If the Biden camp sees this they will know trouble is ahead.
How can those white folks be so poor? They should be benefitting from White Privilege!
By the end of the story, the cnn reporter looked shaken by what she was hearing from both black and white.
Three years ago I thought we were ok with our finances and home, but with the giant increases in insurance(home and auto) property tax and the general cost of living we may eventually need to sell and move.
I can’t believe this was on CNN. Flabbergasted.
My only explanation is that they thought showing ‘rednecks’ supporting Trump would be a big negative, ‘only stupid inbred hill people would vote Trump’. In my neck of the woods (literally) this is a big positive.
Of course cnn though showing rednecks it would be a negative, but just look around “it’s the economy stupid”
Wife’s got family in W.Mon-roe. She’s there now visiting. Not sure she went to the parade though.
Yes Bawconville is a very poor part of the area.
“eventually need to sell and move.”
Move to WHERE, though? The high house price, high property tax, and high insurance rate problem is everywhere.
Oklahoma has some really cheap housing and taxes, especially in some of the really small towns.
It used to be affordable here in North Idaho, but it’s gotten real bad.
I understand that affordable housing can be found in East St. Louis, Ill., Camden, NJ, Gary, Ind. and Detroit.

I go to the bank 🏦🏦🏦 and they give me free money
They tell me that I don’t even have to pay it back
Hey that’s me on a good day
I saw an interview of hockey coach Don Cherry in which he said the Canadian “rednecks” had nothing to be ashamed of. He said “The name came from hardworking men leaning forward to dig or plow or plant and exposing their necks to get sunburned all day. Lazy guys didn’t work so didn’t get red necks.”
