    I'd call it worth looking into. Problem is, this is the kind of thing that's going to be very hard to find really solid evidence for -- something 30+ years ago that is very likely to have gone unreported at the time.

    Still, I think the fact that so many folks here find such a thing unbelievable just means lots of people here haven't been in enough small towns with populations of bigots. Because I don't find the story strange at all, honestly.

    (And as a disclaimer, I in no way want to feed the "all rural people are racist rednecks" stereotype -- most are not. But at least where I grew up, there was a small but very loud bunch of folks who did exactly this kind of crap on a fairly regular basis. This was in the 90's, not the 70's, and wasn't in the south, either.)
