    All this talk about what would have happened if the Confederacy won is ridiculous because they did win. The Union states are now part of the Confederacy. Guys like Carter and Clinton wouldn't have won the Presidency if they weren't from the south. Bush wouldn't have won if the Yale boy wasn't perceived by enough people to have been from the South. Neither party can choose a presidential candidate from the north without having to "balance" the ticket by sticking a southerner on as VP. But it is conceivable for the ticket two have not one, but two southerners.

    Then you get to language issues. Between rap (because even northern blacks have not lost the southern accent of the slaves) and the way Bush and Clinton speak southern English is prevalent throughout the country. Ouch! My ears hurt!

    Now citizens of the Union states are going to see their taxes used to rebuild a peculiarly southern mess in the Gulf. It will be restored to its pre civil war state of beurocratic silliness.

    Then music. White people want to isolate themselves so we have to see and hear a parade of boneheads (some of the most prominent from Canada!) running around playing the most overcommercialized crap which would make Hank Williams Sr. puke, and talking like Gomer Pyle. But that passes for country nowadays because people want "southern" culture.

    The Confederacy won.

    Too much Southern Comfort again , nuc? :D

    but seriously you may have a point--"country" may be a uniquely white culture.

    I think a lot of white folks gravitate towards so-called "country" music and heavy metal for racial reasons. Blacks might be trying to do that with rap, but white kids go for it too, who knows why.

    I believe it's not true. I don't think people listen to country and rock for "racial reasons". Do you believe they do?

    I think that not everyone does, but some do.

    I think that others listen to it not because they are racist, but are just more comfortable with a yee-haw then a yo homie; you tend to like what you already know.

    How special you are to reduce both country and rap to mere racial stereotypes, when they both are so much more. You continually prove your subpar conceptual abilities.
