  •  Racial lines in small towns (1+ / 0-)

    Just because the County is 41% black doesn't mean that it is heterogenuous.  It's pretty much a given that there are "black" and "white" parts of town.  

    I'm not convinced this is a "Southern" issue either...most cities seem to be 'seperated' fairly clearly along racial lines.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

    •  That's why I asked the question (0+ / 0-)

      I just hadn't seen where specifically they lived beyond "some county in Georgia" -- no city/township/etc.  It seemed like an odd omission in what little reporting I could find on this issue, which made me wonder what else might be obscured.  

      Just noticed that there's no obvious reporting of this in what appears to be the local area newspaper:

      My spider-sense is tingling.
