    President Joe Biden said on Thursday night that he hasn't had time to visit the southern border to address the surge in illegal immigrants and admitted that he "should go down." "I've been there before, I know it well, I guess I should go down," Biden told CNN's Anderson Cooper during a town hall event. "The whole point of it is, I haven't had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down."
  • WATCH: What's the Difference Between Y'all and Ya'll?

    There's only one correct way to spell it, y'all"Bless your heart," "Too big for his britches," and "Well, I s'wanee," just to name a few of our favorites. But the best-known word in the Southern vernacular is probably our most-loved pronoun: y'all. A contraction of "you" and "all," as defined by our Mason Dixonary, "y'all" is used when addressing or referencing two or more people. Though "y'all" is inherently plural, in the instance of addressing a larger group of people, "all y'all" is more of a casual, slang phrase that's sometimes used. Like how all soda is called Coke and...

    If you’ve ever heard anything on the Stax Records label, then you’ve probably heard Steve Cropper's masterful guitar playing. He might well have written and produced it too The guitarist with Booker T. & The M.G.’s, Stax Records’ house band, Steve Cropper backed scores of soul greats during the 60s as well as being a go-to producer. He’s also a songwriter whose compositions include classics such as Wilson Pickett’s In The Midnight Hour, Eddie Floyd’s Knock On Wood and Otis Redding’s (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay.

    What we've gone through in the past year, to have that much hope be delivered in a row, that is absolutely phenomenal.To be Southern means to love thy neighbor and love thy Whataburger, are we right? To that point, patrons of one Whataburger in the Pensacola suburb, Pace, embodied the best of both virtues with a chain of more than 100 customers buying food for the people behind them in the drive-thru line.
  • Southern Baptist Convention leaders dropping 'Southern' from name over slavery connection

    The Hill ^ | 09 15 2020 | Celine Castronuovo
    Leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention are steadily removing the “Southern” part of their name in an effort that Convention President J.D. Greear said is essential following a summer of Black Lives Matter protests and increased calls for racial justice reform. In an interview with The Washington Post published Tuesday, Greear said there has been more support to adopt the new name “Great Commission Baptists,” both because of the changing climate in the U.S. and because many have long believed the “Southern Baptist” title no longer adequately encompasses the approximately 50,000 churches that now exist around the globe. “Our Lord...
  • 'The politics of racial division': Trump borrows Nixon's 'southern strategy

    theguardian ^ | 09/05/2020 | Daniel Strauss
    Donald Trump has warned that if Joe Biden replaces him as president the suburbs will be flooded with low-income housing. He has backed supporters who have sometimes violently clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters across the country. The US president has even refrained from directly condemning the actions of a teenager charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. And Trump has also called the BLM movement a “symbol of hate”. With such rhetoric, the president is taking a page or two out of the 1960s “southern strategy”: the playbook Republican politicians such as Richard Nixon and Barry Goldwater used...

    History.House ^ | 6/21/20
    On this date, Howard Smith of Virginia, chairman of the House Rules Committee, introduced the Southern Manifesto in a speech on the House Floor. Formally titled the “Declaration of Constitutional Principles,” it was signed by 82 Representatives and 19 Senators—roughly one-fifth of the membership of Congress and all from states that had once composed the Confederacy. It marked a moment of southern defiance against the Supreme Court’s 1954 landmark Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka (KS) decision, which determined that separate school facilities for black and white school children were inherently unequal. The Manifesto attacked Brown as an...

    Daily Political Newswire ^ | Mar 7, 2020 | Keely Sharp
    That’s it. I have heard it all! As a southern person, I say the word “y’all” all the time. It is a conjunction of the words “you” and “all”. I use it for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re male, female, old, young, white, black….In no way, shape, or form is the word racist. That is, unless you’re a liberal I guess. I came across an article calling for the word “y’all” to be banned because thy fee the word is racist. NPC Daily writer Neville Croft wrote, “[A] new hate word is increasingly being used by the alt-right. The...

    A photo of Governor Bill Lee has surfaced depicting him wearing a Confederate uniform while attending an "Old South" party with his fraternity, Kappa Alpha. The yearbook page in the "Greek Life" section features a caption saying: "...KA is based on the ideals that its founding fathers saw exemplified in their college president, Robert E. Lee. These ideals constituted the frame and fabric of Southern Culture and include chivalry, valor, loyalty and reverence for womankind. It is for this reason that KA at Auburn Univ. each spring has a week long celebration of the grandeur and glory of the OLD...

    TRUE HISTORY OF THE WAR FOR SOUTHERN INDEPENDENCE IN THIS AGE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS there has never been a greater need and greater opportunity to refresh our understanding of what happened in America in the years 1861-1865 and start defending our Southern forebears as strongly as they ought to be defended. There is plenty of true history available to us. It is our job to make it known. All the institutions of American society, including nearly all Southern institutions and leaders, are now doing their best to separate the Confederacy off from the rest of American history and push it...

    Did Hillary Clinton put on a southern accent on campaign stop in Memphis? Some critics claim she changed her voice Hillary Clinton has been accused of putting on a southern accent during a campaign stop in Memphis. During a speech at LeMoyne-Owen College earlier this week, some people claimed the Democratic presidential candidate's voice had something of a southern twang. Clinton has faced similar accusations in the past, most notably during speeches in Alabama and South Carolina.

October 4th, 2015 – Caucasian student removed from an event strictly for black students and uttered, “these niggers are getting aggressive with me” while being removed.

    The other day, my son asked why there are such a variety of accents in the country. Why does a fellow from Mississippi have a twang that’s different from a fellow in Texas? Long ago, I asked my father a similar question. He pointed out that it isn’t just in America – a wide range of dialects and accents are common for French, Arabic, whatever. In recent days, some interesting pieces have appeared online. One in Slate has a list of the top slang terms from every state. Here’s what was included for the Mid-South: Arkansas: “tump” -- to tip...

    As the debate over the Confederate Battle Flag continues to occupy the interest of the media we are constantly reminded of precisely who is “right” and who is on the wrong side of history. Listening to the talking heads on cable news you’d be tempted to think that, much like climate change, the social science is settled. Everyone is onboard for tearing the hated flag down and if you don’t agree you are part of a tiny group of racist dead enders, clutching your guns and your bibles in some remote cave in the Ozarks. Presidential candidates and Republican Party...

    New York Times ^ | February 9, 2015 | Nate Cohn
    Public opinion surveys show that a majority of adults — and a growing one — now supports same-sex marriage. But the rapid change in public opinion may obscure another fact: Large areas of the country remain overwhelmingly opposed to same-sex marriage, with little sign of change. Alabama is one of those places, and the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court this weekend encouraged probate judges there to defy a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The emerging national majority in favor of same-sex marriage is built on high levels of support in well-educated metropolitan areas,...
