    progressives. Just as there are tons of northern racists and right wingers. Nonetheless, as illustrated in your quote, some are able to take great offense at slights against southerners, whether real or perceived, while simultaneously -- and blissfully unawares -- blithely insulting their northern and urban fellow citizens.

    The undeserved indignation is unbecoming, especially when accompanied by hypocrisy wrapped in lack of self awareness.

    I'm all for dialog and reaching out to those who we might not always agree with. Let's just not romanticize some mythic noble southern white man of the soil.
