Subject: RE: Ebony Hillbillies
I once had a roommate who was from Nashville. He called himself a hillbilly quite proudly, and certainly took no offense when he heard someone else use the phrase. I had no idea that today people were offended by that phrase. I suppose some folk enjoy feeling persecuted, and actually look for ways to be offended.
