I know this is late, but Gavin was talking about how southern leftists are probably more chill than northern ones and it definitely stuck in my craw because in the South, SJWs, leftist, BLM etc feel they have a REASON for their positions. They are more emboldened because various injustices have been more recent and lets say actual.
If they are natives or transplants they go out of their way NOT to be aligned with racism or religion. They are the type to abide by ALL talking points and rules, because not to do so would mean they are equivalent to Bull Conner. They quote Martin Luther King's statement "the suburbs are a “high-income white noose” around black inner cities." Ignoring the violence and mayhem within these cities, that blacks are fleeing. They stay in dangerous cities even after their loved ones are violently attacked making excuses for the system. They are particularly contemptful of religion and seak out nonreligous daycares and schools.
I live in Memphis and I feel abandoned by Tennessee. All of the cities in the south are no different than the cities in the north.
Southern leftists are justified they feel. In the city I lived in in the south the state university actually was found guilty of paying women less for the same positions in the 80s!! Do you know how hard that is to prove?!?! That case was one of the few if not the only successful lawsuit of its kind.
When I started my transition to "traditional liberal" or "not left." One thing that I kept thinking was that the right, republicans need to specifically address their past racism. Or at least specifically address it. Racism is the key. Black people in the south are never going to be republican unless this is done.
