Sentence ending with question mark?
I do and I don’t.
While I grew up in the south and I think we have a culture the older I got and more internet I got into the more I was made to feel ashamed because the south is apparently only backwards racist sexist hillbillies. I’ve been made fun of for my accent. TV shows actively make fun of southern people etc.
Yeah, ” people have it worse” and that’s another reason I can’t really talk about how it annoys me when Southerners are portrayed as idiots in media. Who cares about the dumb white people? I just let that self-hate fester.
As far as ancestors, sure I have those but I’m about as connected to Italy as I am to Africa even though if you keep going back we all have that.
Sometimes I think if I could choose to be someone else I would. A lot of cultures have far more awesome shit that the internet has made me feel guilty for liking.
