With the Russian invasion of Georgia (the one on the Eurasian continent, not the one on the North American continent), and Google Maps’ colossal blunder in locating the correct Georgia, we once again are going to be subjected to comments such as these.
you?ve probably still got the crazies in Georgia, USA hiding in the bushes with their shotguns waiting for the Russian tanks to come rumbling past muttering to themselves ?that Google map thingie said they were coming!? Gotta stay vigilant!

I *do* know what it’s like in the south, and the post that was made on Yahoo! Answers was completely typical.
Do you honestly think that people in the South aren’t racist? Think again. What does MARTA stand for again? Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta, or so I’ve been told *many* times. Just because whites are a minority in Georgia (ed. note: not according to current Census Bureau figures) doesn’t mean that they aren’t making all the comments their grandparents made when they think no one is listening. Also, when is the last time you saw a Mexican in Georgia in a suit?
Sigh.? Here we go again with the stereotypes.? Apparently they think it’s okay, though, because this is a Politically Correct stereotype, the Ignorant Redneck Southerner.? Sorry, folks, your high-mindedness is badly misplaced.? It’s NOT okay.? Bigotry is bigotry, just as ugly when it’s PC as when it’s not.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going into the studio to do a little cleaning while Gretchen Wilson’s cranked up on my stereo…
