“'Cause they’re used to fantasy, and it’s what they do to dream, call it ‘fiction addiction’ ‘cause the truth is a heavy thing” ~Big Boi, OutKast
I’m southern. There’s my disclaimer.
I’ve been marinating on the relationship between African American life and southern “fault” since my thesis days. I’ve come to the conclusion that, in similar fashion to blackness in white America, the south is the scapegoat for all ills associated with African Americandom. In likeness of the homie William Shakespeare, bull shitteth.
