5 Big Stereotypes about the South

Alternet provided a very helpful article exploring the way in which often southerners and southern culture are misunderstood, and how this misunderstanding leads toward prejudices which break down the ability to work within southern culture: http://www.alternet.org/story/154794/5_big_media_stereotypes_about_the_south_%28and_the_real_story_behind_them%29 .

If you get a chance, I’d encourage you to take the time to read through it.  I truly think stereotypes and prejudices that come from misunderstanding southern culture often create real barriers to progressive work.

And I ain’t just whistling Dixie!

Your progressive redneck preacher,
