It's a state that proudly flies the confederate flag. What else would you expect?
Heritage, not hate! *HUGE EYEROLL*
I'm always ashamed to admit this, but I went to a private school in middle & high school, and they flew the confederate flag alongside the american flag. For what it's worth, I now live in one of the more liberal towns in the state and make people uncomfortable with my secrecy and embarassment over my adolescence.
