I like to think that we still have "our southern hospitality".
I suspect that society everywhere is in decline.
Our moral slide continues.
You see, you have some people in this County, that was raised to be prejudiced. This has has been taught, from many generations going down to the youngest of offspring. People refuse to change with the time for many reasons. Fear of change, Too Old To Change, Too Proud To Change, to stubborn to change, and don't want anyone to come in this town to make any changes. A lot of people here in Liberty County think separate but equal is good enough. But as complacency, and apathy grows in Liberty County, and the Racial Divide continues, this town is heading in the same direction as the town from where you left. The ONLY reason the County is hanging on is because of Ft. Stewart. Had it not been for that, Liberty County would have already reached that demise many years ago.
Until the status quo stops quantifying race as an affliction or social standing; the ingorance will continue. For some reason being an American is not good enough. Many ethnicities insist that they be identified with the appropriate subculture. Please do not misunderstand my point; there is nothing wrong with identifying with ones past however, until we figure out a way to stand as one, the divide will continue.
I've been here for 31yrs also & I'm shocked that we need to be having the "race" conversation at all in the 21st century, but then again I was shocked that we had to have it 31 years ago!
It should always be remembered that racism is a 2 way street, and a rather narrow one at that...
A lot of others got fired too. I'm sorry that Lovie hasn't gotten a second chance as head coach yet. He did a pretty good job while at Chicago. He has been to the playoff on several occasions.
How about Jim Walsh Jr. getting replaced this year?
