Easy on the conscience when you can just ask for forgiveness on Sunday.

What was Jim Crow apartheid if not naked corruption, draining away black tax dollars to fund comfortable lives for white elites?

It’s ALWAYS been corrupt, but it was impolite for other rich people outside the South to call it out.

Because everyone else was doing it, too. Just quieter.

The South has always been used in a “you don’t have to outrun the bear, you just have to outrun the other people” sort of way.

As long as Southern states are awfuller, northern states can be awful and still claim the moral high ground. (Likewise, as long as the north is comfortable with their level of awfulness, the South can sincerely claim that they aren’t really that different. It’s a symbiotic relationship of shittiness)

Meanwhile, because the West doesn’t rub elbows enough with the South, they naively fall for the garbage spouted by the north about the South.

I live in Mississippi and my dad had an amazing saying about hyper-religious types; “they all do the same stuff, they just do it behind closed doors.”

Casual corruption is very much a way of life there. Where I lived, it was an open secret that the “small government” “drain the swamp” representative was committing farm subsidies fraud, and it did absolutely nothing to lower his popularity.

Yeah, in my field the South is known to be as corrupt as fuck. The Feds are always surprised how less corrupt my Blue State is.

u/GeorgieWashington Sep 25 '22

The South and Blue States aren’t the poles though.

Do you perhaps mean “Red States” instead of “The South”?

u/HappyApple99999 Sep 25 '22

No I mean the South, especially New Orleans

u/GeorgieWashington Sep 25 '22

I’ve never heard of the Southern state called New Orleans. Is that near the Democrat-governed state known as Louisiana?

No. It's the White Supremacy and Nggs-know-their-place belt. It's disgusting.
