The Outlawing Of Our Heritage

14 Jun

Any self-respecting Southerner knows the unrelenting, vicious assault our heritage is under.  It was really brought home to me this week during a discussion of geography and food at my kids’ school.  My son mentioned some traditional Southern food we eat regularly.  When he came home he confided in me that the discussion worried him because he was afraid that the school would find out we were “Confederates”. 

I let him know that our heritage was something to be proud of, but I cannot believe that I live in a day where the schools’ anti Southern hatred has reached the point where children fear they will be discriminated against simply because they honor their heritage.

    Kids aren’t dumb despite public schooling. The pick up on the anti-South bias. It’s something they get bit into their heads fairly regularly. Public schooling is child abuse.

      It borders on it, but for most people you have no choice.
