Onetinsoldier are you kidding me? Have you ever actually been to the south? You may not know this, but the south isn't a bunch of log cabins with dumb rednecks playing banjos on the porch. It's a city just like any other northern, midwestern, or western city. There are many transplants from other parts of the nation here as well. And any confederate flag you may see is certainly only based on heritage, not hate. There is no rotten core here. Sorry your city didn't win. Must be rotten fruit.
