Please watch the video. It is insane. This is small town America. If I was black I would be terrified to live somewhere like this.
"How come there are only 3 or 4 n*****s out here? That's right, N****R! N****R!"
"You shouldn't be supporting the goddamn n*****s around here!"

You get outside civilization in any city in this country and you aren't white--be careful.

My band unfortunately used to play wherever we could since we had no name and needed gigs. We had a few redneck bars out in the sticks we used to go to. One of them had places in the back for the airboats to dock. Nice hearing these camo-wearing rednecks loudly joking about stringin 'em up some black folks (though they didn't say "black folks"). My kids are half-asian so I'd be somewhat careful about where I'd choose to live, though they don't have it as bad as black kids would in those bad areas.

Small-midsized towns in middle America are often super duper racist. Most people think it's just the South....nope. It might actually be worse.
I live in New York.
One thing that's become blatantly obvious is that we are surrounded by super racist people. They have just been more discrete about about it..at least until Obama became president. Then they started showing their colors. Once Trump took office...holy crap.

His win, in which he failed to clear the popular vote by millions, was interpreted as a legitimization of such feelings by a lot of people who decided they didn't need to hide them any longer.

I live in a very small fewer than 6000 people) on the Washington coast. Redneck as hell...with Trump flags everywhere...yet I haven't seen or heard any kind of racist acts or speech. Does it happen? I'm sure it does...after all, we have 4-5 black families here...as well as some Hispanic families and Asian families. (I live next to the family of one of the owners of the only Chinese restaurant in town)

The Bethels in Maine and Vermont seem a lot less racist, I'd def stick to those. There are some real rednecks in Maine, but I've never known them to be very outspoken or aggressive. Not like those assholes. Wow.

There are BLM signs all over the place in VT, despite there being very few black folks who live up here. Haven't seen or heard a single 'all lives matter' ignorant cop out. Small details like that remind me why I'm so glad to have washed my hands of Florida and the bible belt.

Indiana comes to mind. Had a large KKK membership at one time.

Its most places in the midwest really but yeah Indiana would be near the top of my list except for a few of the college towns like Bloomington.

my neighbor for many years was originally from Ohio. I got the sense from him that racism there was truly the norm, outside of big cities. He had to tone down his overt references, but he's still the same.

I'm originally from Cincinnati (Bethel is just east of Cincinnati) and currently live in Atlanta.

For the most part, most states are Mississippi outside of the Metro areas.

My god, this image is worth a hundred words. These towns are like the armpits of America. I think it's caused by generations of echo chamber and economic depravity, which they now take pride in. They're mentally and emotionally stunted in growth, which makes me feel a very tiny bit bad for them. Most likely they've hardly left their own town let alone be exposed to other ideas. They live in fear of the outside world and what's different. It's nearly impossible to reach people like this, their minds are too far gone.

It's called blow back, but at least we can enjoy our cheap outsourced goods and services on the coasts so the 1% who live in their gated communities can enjoy wealth and prosperity like no one else while virtue signaling over the issues the little people struggle with every day in real life.
