My husband thinks I'm crazy because I refuse to visit or even drive THROUGH a red state because I dont feel safe.
Would you drive through Kentucky or Texas with NY State license plates? Am I being obtuse?

So, I’m a fat Jewish guy from Miami.
I was living in Alabama and working as an engineer.
I had to travel to NYC.
I went to check into the hotel.
The woman behind the counter took my ID, looked at it, and said “Alabama? Are you in the Klan?”
Really. No, bullshit.
Another time I was at the Pittsburgh airport, chatting with the person next to me in line, as you do when you’re bored.
“Heading out or heading home?”
“You don’t look like your parents are cousins.”
People from the North East are the biggest, most aggressive fucking bigots in this country.
They are open and proud of their bigotry.
They are absolutely secure in their superiority over any other region in the country, especially the South, and have absolutely no shame in that.
They will be openly bigoted to people from the South, and smug in their feeling that they did something right by being an asshole to a lower lifeform.
This woman is an absolute bigot and the replies are filled with fellow bigots justifying her bigotry.
When I say I think we need a national divorce before we balkanize violently, this thread is proof of why.
