Subject: RE: Ebony Hillbillies
Call me oversensitive, but the rural poor in general, and Hillbillies in particular, can be stereotyped, patronized, and dissed with impunity in a way that other groups cannot.
IMHO you don't have a license to use the "H" word unless you are one.
I assume that the Ebony Hillbillies would take it amiss if I used the "N" word in my band name.
