Tyrone: ... so I wound up on the Stormfront website.
John: Why were you on a white supremacy website?
Tyrone: Google misfire . It's weird, they don't seem all that angry at us black people any more. It's mostly the Jews.
John: Wait'll the economy gets better. It'll swing right back your way. (sigh) There's this debate going on, some people say we need to reach out to the Red State folk -- after all, they are citizens, with real concerns -- and then there's people who say ... not so much.
Tyrone: And you stand --
John: Seriously, screw them. This Confederacy, Southern Pride crap has had more than enough time to work itself out of their system. You know there's idiots trying to push that "slavery wasn't that bad"? It's been a hundred and forty years since the war, and they're still angry at Northerners and city folk, and holding on to this righteous indignation crap.
Tyrone: You're saying there's a cutoff point.
John: Ten years. Even in Japan and post-Nazi germany, within ten years people had moved on. The very next generation knew they had to let that shit go.
Tyrone: Yes, but John, that's because those people felt they'd done something wrong. In the South, you had a good three or four generations who were raised to feel that the government had come and taken away their daddy's rightful property --
John: -- and by property, you mean black people --
Tyrone: -- not the point. A good sixty years of Southerners feeling they'd been literally robbed of assets. Assets they should still have.
John: So subconsciously they're pissed because if it weren't for the North, they'd have Halle Berry living in their house. Cleaning it. For free.
Tyrone: ... wow. When you put it that way, I actually kind of get it.
