Less than 5 miles from my house, it got real rustic. Then I saw a cardboard sign with… White's town… Written in Black Sharpie. That was my clue to make the u-turn and go back to civilization only a few miles away, and never think that I could just Joyride around the South again. LOL. White folks are so petty LMAO. Reply This is so evil on so may levels. smh Reply THE SHAME IS ALL YOU BLACK NEGROS LOVE TO RACE MIX INTERMARRIAGE AND HAVE ROMANCES WITH THE DECENDENTS OF THE SAME BEAST THAT HATES YOUR GUTTS. Reply Why was it called Green though? Reply Sundown towns and Jim crow on the books in many states counties across America call them out by name Reply The crime rate was low in sundown towns. Reply American History doesn't speak on how Cajuns in Louisiana were also treated during these times. Or the Creole struggle. Reply for the white people who came here to share their white perspectives and white experiences.. this is not the forum. Reply those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. we must never let facts like these die. Reply Is it horrible to hate today’s racist people because that’s what I feel.For them to have to carry a book around just to know which establishments are safe is ridiculous. Even without that book today, any one other than the color white has to look out for those types of people around us. Reply so sad…., in the land of the free Reply WHERE DOES CBS STAND ON REPARATION FOR THE AMERICANS DESCENDANTS OF SLAVERY. #ADOS KNOW THIS SAME HISTORY , EVERYDAY,!!!!! Reply "Which some people remember all to well", were they suppose to forget. Reply Many white people are envy and jealous of black people because they acknowledge that they was created with recessives genes that is masked by dominant genes ( melanin ) along with fear of genetic annihilation.. They shouldn’t be angry at black people, I suggest that white people need too and should, have a conversation with our universal creator 🖤✊🏿🖤 Reply Dont feel.sorry for blacks, Hollydood and blacks tried to keep hush the dirty secret fact that Africans also kidnapped, enslaved and raped Europeans for centuries but the weird thing is that Hollywood has never made one movie about it. If they informed America about this blacks will lose their "I feel.sorry for them" story line. Reply As an Afrcan American male Im thankful I didn't live in the Jim Crow era. That's why I have deep appreciation for MLK, civil right leaders and believing whites who gave their blood, sweat, and even their lives for the freedom I have today. Reply um in Memphis and need a green book… Where do i find one? Reply Here now in 2019 some peoples say blacks shouldn't get reparation.this is just one of many reasons.we should get reparation Reply what a great story!!! Thanks Reply I'm white. I was in the army a while ago and during basic training there was this one guyfrom the deep south, it was not that he was a racist, it was just that he had virturally no brains. He would call black guys in the company derogatory names according to their race. However, I do have to commend the blacks for what they did. They did'nt do anything. They realized he was stupid and nothing else. Reply 👏👏👏👏 Reply A shameful and disgusting time for North America. Putting down another human being for decades and decades simply for the color of their skin(non white) How STUPID and neanderthal that sounds. Reply To bad the movie boils it all down to white savior nonsense. Reply Everyone should watch this movie. God bless. Reply Hi from New Zealand,You couldn't paid me to live in America! Reply #democrats Reply R Reply If Trump had it his way America would go back to this time….. what he likes to call the great time. this is what Trump means by making America great again and anybody that denies it is either ignorant or complicit in this crime. But to me it's the same thing. There is no excuse for ignorance at this point. A denial it's just as evil. Reply 🙏🏾 Reply There are still places today where white establisments do NOT welcome non-white customers. Black people in luxury cars still get harassed by the police. Racism is still alive and well. That's what donald trump meant when he said "Let's make America -White- Great Again." It was code and the racists still upset about a Black man having been in the White House practically carried donald trump in on their redneck shoulders. Reply It's a hostile time that's why we still remember. 😔 smh. Reply Don't worry eventually green books will be reintroduced. Reply Still need green book today in 2019 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
