Subject: RE: Folklore: Where is Dixie
I beg to differ on Atlanta......lived there, Karen grew up there, and for the most part it is far more like Chicago than anywhere in the South. Anymore, the skyline even looks like Chicago! Yeah, there are still some roots there but they die a little more every day.
You're quite right though on Northern attitudes and the more clandestine bigotry that exists which is a lot tougher to fight!
