a Race war?
So I've been watching the news these last couple of days and I am beginning to wonder if pretty soon we aren't going to have another war to worry about-a new race war. It is a new world living down here in the south, and I'll be honest, it was a bit of a shock when I saw that Alabama celebrates a dual holiday on MLK day...they also celebrate the legacy of Robert E Lee and his birthday...now that was a new one for this yankee. In addition to that I turn on the news and I see Hillary Clinton running her mouth as always about how the House is run like a "plantation" good marketing move on her part to say it in an all black church service. Then they show good ole Ray Nagin...gotta love the man and what does he say? New Orleans is going to be rebuilt as a "chocolate city." I just wonder and I get a little nervous when I see and here stuff like this if we aren't on the verge of another race war like what was fought during the Civil rights days of the 60's. I don't know, what do you think, but living here in Pensacola (Or lower Alabama-being as close as we are) I can definitely see some riffs between people of different races and I just wonder...time will tell I guess
