    I have a Cherokee great-grandmother and a Scot-Irish grandmother. On one side... from the mountains of Appalachia. So, I am acutely aware of the shadows and valleys and nature and cultures within that realm.

    And we've traced our genealogy waaaayyy back hundreds of years. Not too hard to do with the mountain people.  

    As for the poverty, I believe my point was that grinding an axe on poverty is in the eye of the beholder... when cultural stereotypes are leveraged as a complaint against poverty. That's not kosher.
