I was shocked at this at UGA

My kid's went there and last week we were discussing their time at UGA(fairly recent) and they said that the "N" word is used all the time on campus. I was really surprised at this behavior. I had high hopes for the "new" southerners. I guess it is still the same. I wished I could have convinced my family to move to Colorado. I'm still stuck in this s-hole.

I keep trying to tell people this entire thing is the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth over losing the White Majority. They are only going to get worse...

Southerners are not getting better...

I suspect it’s a body part. And not arm.

But really, GA is the postal abbreviation for Georgia. That’s why UGA.

Also, without it, it would just be "UG". Lord knows, we have enough problems around here without dealing with that, too.

They're not only losing, their current raging is BECAUSE they've been losing for most of a century.

Remember, the people of the whole state of Georgia, which in 2008 was considered a hard Republican stronghold, in 2012 helped reelect Obama, then helped elect Biden twice, elected two Democratic senators to give us a tie+VP in the senate, and recently reelected one of them to secure our majority.

Is it them trying to be down, or them downing Black people?

Know what I mean?
