Newsflash:  The Confederacy lost the war in 1865.  Look at the surrenders at Appomattox, Selma and Bennett's Place (link, another link).  I am not buying the governor's words.

AP reports that Bryant said in a statement, "Mississippi's history deserves study and reflection, no matter how unpleasant or complicated the matter may be." He continued that "gaining insight from our mistakes and successes will help us move forward."

 :no:...........if you take the governor's statement^^^^supportibg this bullshyt at face value, how in the HELL can anyone expect that VERY socially regressive state to "move forward" if you are constantly trying to GLORIFY a period in this nation's history when black folks were regarded as "farm animals"?

Man, these folks are sick and need help.

Remember.  The governor is a republican.  Mississippi is run by republicans.

Which is why Mississippi, along with Alabama, are bringing up the rear...

Fair of unfair there is a popular saying in the south.  It is "Thank God for Mississippi."  Before anyone from the Magnolia State come after me, I have had and notice problems that are as bad or worse than in Mississippi.  I faced more racism and bigotry in the north than in the south.  Note that Mike Pence is from Indiana, once the leader in KKK membership.  Trump is from New York City.

Anyway, statement like those from the governor is one reason why the state has the stereotypes that it has.  The leaders do not seem to do a lot to get rid of them.

EB,

Those stereotypes are not even a concern of those that are the powers that be in MS.   :no:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
