  •  It's in part why I "immigrated" to WA 33 years ago (0+ / 0-)

    I grew up in the relatively blue pocket around Asheville and left my home state in 1979 in part because of the intolerance.  For instance, during my studies at UNC Chapel Hill, WRAL TV in Raleigh signed off at midnight not with the national anthem but with Dixie.  Not real subtle during the height of the civil rights movement.  It's like there are two states.  A small patch of blue around Asheville and then the rest, although I understand that that's changing some.   Now I feel very much at home in one of the most liberal zones in WA State.  I still have family in NC and there are things I miss about it.  It's a wonderful, beautiful, state if you could just check the politics at the border.
