It's a mix that requires. A different lense that most don't have.
I grew up in liberal DC, and then went to texas. I'm now up north again, but my view of the south has changed dramatically.
From the responses I've gotten, I feel like people think I'm saying the south doesn't have very real problems with race. It does. But the daily reality is much closer to what you're describing.
I wish I could 1984 myself this throughly. My life will get so much easier.
