“The South Will Fall Again”

There is something inherently wrong in the South.

And it’s not the slow southern living, or the laziness in their southern drawl, or the languid summer days. And it isn’t the sweet, enticing taste of Southern Comfort, or Sloe Gin Fizzes!

Many in the southern states still have a sordid belief that the South will rise again — believe there’s something noble in that. But there would be nothing grand about returning to the ideals or bigotry that permeates southern thinking, dulls the senses and numbs the brain.

Recent statements by the Italian-American member of the Supreme Court have prompted discourse about his partiality and the damage that one-sidedness has done to the country. The court’s bias is also under constant scrutiny.
