Frenchy, for one there is nothing particularly "Southern" about trailer parks, coal mines and incest. I'm from the rural Midwest and those "stereotypes" fit. And, no, I've said nothing about you posting side-by-side with the Klan.quote:You're making it sound like I post side-by-side with the klan without saying a word and then jump all over MBM.
So, now, I guess I should say I'm firmly against your ridiculous outrage calling the "stereotype" Southern when it applicable in place in and beyond the South.
BULLSHIT!!! And it's even more BS considering how your assumption about the said "stereotype" is ridiculously untenable. I certainly know I didn't associate or would have characterized the "stereotype" as depicting Southerners and Southerners only, as I have noted. So, obviously, the problem lies in your perceptions, insecurities and sensibilities as much as they do in any said "stereotype."quote:I do it where I see it.
No insinuation. I meant what I said: You seem to have a thing for wanting to call the dogs off of trolls and OTHER PEOPLE who use plenty of stereotypes, etc. when they register their views.quote:It sounds like you're insinuating that I'm somehow sticking up for that troll by posting in this thread.
Case In Point... NativeAlien. Hardly a "troll" per se and definitely not the klan. But you definitely wasn't spazzin' over his use of stereotypes. As I recall you were all love, patience and Teach Them. A very different approach even in the face of blatant stereotypes and such by NativeAlien.
You definitely wasn't all "FIRMLY and BELLIGERENTLY against the ridiculous stereotypes he employed. That's my point. It's a recognizable pattern.
BULLSHIT, Frenchy.quote:Oh man. The stereotypes in and of themselves bother me.
I'm sure there are plenty of Black SOUTHERNERS who are just as dirt poor as some of the trailer park, flag waving White "Southerners" who hold these "stereotypes" about their fellow White Southerners. There is nothing inherently "elitist" about the "stereotype" just as there is nothing inherently or tenably Southern about it.
Now, move right along to adjusting your misguided view that are applying your Firm and Beligerent disdain for stereotypes more consistently.
