Being a son of the dead old South,

I can use this manner of speech. If you used this style, you would be a racist. But I cannot be accused of such anymore than an African-American can be denied his right to refer to a DNA kinsman as a nigger.....a privilege denied us white folk. My Southern accent is a bequeath brought to us Southerners through our trend-setting former plantation elite. When mammy and the house "nigger" ruled the big house, and were tasked with caring for those privileged white brats, the manner of speech was inculcated throughout the white culture, a symbiosis of two races. It just percolated throughout like sweat on a starched white Sunday school shirt. Copious mint Julips, and suffocating heat and humidity makes one bound to slur and drawl. Oh how I miss those lazy dazy long hot summers. Carry me back to old Virginny, that's where the cotton, corn, and tators grow.....that's where my heart is long to go.... (Words from the former state song, written by a former slave. The PC crowd erased it from memory.)

        You were very disrespectful to the president of the CONFEDERATE States. And your pigeon negro dialect was a sad rendition. You need MO practice.

          " your pigeon negro dialect was a sad rendition. " That's because it was a redneck dialect. You should be able to tell the difference. Foghorn Leghorn : The character of Foghorn Leghorn was directly... more

          who I frequently ask for translations into English, things he says. Our differences are the strongest bonds of respect and friendship.

            While in say I hate diversity (caveated), eating apple pie ONLY is sho no fun. It's the differences that make the difference...and enrich life's experience. I had a friend (rip) born in the hollows... more
