    He can be so nonchalant about it because it didn’t happen to him. I’ve lived in the south for over 50 years. I experienced it, and it was one of the worst periods of my life. I spent the first 18 years of my life being denied the right to enter certain public facilities, having some whites call me names, throw rocks at me, and try to run me over as I was crossing the street. They did these things because they could get away with them without facing any consequences. Barbour is full of s&*t. I had read about the CCC previously, and none of what I read was complementary to those who are members of the organization. Nothing disgusts me more than someone who is a racist who tries to tell me that he/she is not a racist when I’m living with the effects of their racism. Barbour knows that racism is still alive and well in America, especially in the south. The racists will never stop trying to “win” the Civil War they lost, and they will never stop trying to put those whom they dislike in their “place.”
