Mississippi - Believe it

Here is my full article on the campaign as it appears in the USM newspaper:

By David McRaney

Most people from Mississippi carry more than luggage when they travel.

If you hail from the Magnolia state, you not only carry with you a significant Southern drawl and a love for fried okra wherever you go, but also the legacy of a place identified with some of the darkest moments in America's past. Even without the history, Mississippians must fight against stereotypes stemming from some of the most unfortunate statistical rankings of any state in the union.

Recently, Rick Looser, Chief Operating Officer of The Cirlot Agency, decided to do something about Mississippi's inferiority complex.

At his company's own expense an advertising campaign entitled "Mississippi, Believe It!" was created to promote a more positive image of the state.

The 11 print advertisements feature taglines like "Yes we can read. Some of us can even write."

Images of famous Mississippi writers like William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams and John Grisham are featured below the words, and the ads cinch up the idea with an explanatory paragraph or two outlining just why Mississippi is better than most people think.
Another ad offers a row of headshots with well-known black musicians like B.B. King and Bo Diddly; above, the words read 'No Black. No White. Just the Blues.-

According to a press release from the agency, the ads implore the rest of the world to have a change of heart about Mississippi.

"I like to say that this is some shut-up juice for people outside our state," said Looser.

Looser said he was on a plane last year when he told a 12-year-old Connecticut child sitting next to him he was from Mississippi. The boy then asked if the state was still full of Ku Klux Klansmen. After explaining to the boy modern Mississippi was not like what most people see in movies and television, he decided to design a campaign to combat the negative stereotype.

Looser believes the regional prejudice Mississippi natives are subjected to is something many people consider not only acceptable, but continuously propagate.

"What we tried to do is take every stereotype and turn it on its ear," he added.

The state Department of Education has agreed to have posters designed by the agency delivered to every school in the state. Looser described students as "citizen ambassadors" who he believes must be taught a sense of pride about Mississippi.

William Scarborough, professor of history at USM, thinks the campaign is a good idea, but the negative stereotype is not entirely inaccurate.

'I've been here 45 years,- said Scarborough, 'and there are still some serious problems. The educational system is not good. To see that, all you have to do is listen to a sheriff in Indiana describing a crime on television and a sheriff here doing the same. Or, look at the letters to the editor in the local newspaper.-

Scarborough went on to say race relations are much better than 40 years ago, and many other things have improved since he first arrived, but he believes the state has a long way to go.

Scarborough added Mississippi is a poverty stricken state with the lowest per capita income in the nation.

'We are not a good as some other states,- said Scarborough. 'It's going to take more than an ad campaign to improve things.-

Mississippi has garnered considerable sympathy because of Hurricane Katrina, he said. The negative image did not prevent people from coming to the state from all over the U.S., and many people saw the spirit of the people, which probably helped to dispel stereotypes, said Scarborough.

Still, he believes students attending a Mississippi university who attempt to get into graduate school in another state will suffer because of the state's tainted image.

USM Assistant Director for News and Marketing Christopher Mapp said the stereotype also affects people who transfer to the university from other states.

'Any misperceptions visitors have about our state or about Southern Miss are quickly dispelled the moment they set foot on campus,- said Mapp.

Mapp believes in addition to having one of the loveliest campuses in the country with the friendliest people, the university also has some of the finest faculty, students and facilities anywhere.

Mapp added he supports the campaign.

'Mississippi has contributed so much to the great artistic and literary fabric of this nation that it's hard to imagine what our country would be like without its cultural influence,- he said. 'While our past also has its shameful side, Mississippians are by and large proud of their traditions and heritage, and it's nice to see a PR campaign that's rooted in that pride.-

The Cirlot Agency has donated over $100,000 in time and resources to produce the campaign. Service Printers, Inc., of Flowood also donated over $20,000 in services to print the posters.

SECOND POST! LOL!

I've never been to mississippi. I also don't make fun of mississippi. In fact, the only states/countries I regularly make fun of are:

1) New York 2) Boston/Massachussetts 3) England 4) Pennsylvania 5) Mexico

"I like to say that this is some shut-up juice for people outside our state," said Looser.

I like to say that maybe Mississippi might want to find a shut-up juice vendor that isn't named "Looser".

I've never been to Texas, but I make fun of it regularly. It can't stop me.

B.B. King? Thats kinda ironic, 'cause they wouldnt let them meepars perform in their state until as recently as 1971. There was no law banning it but it was shall we say, an unwritten law. I meeping hate the south and everything to do with it. Sadly, if you need a campaign to try and change peoples minds about your state, chances are there is something dreadfully wrong with it. My granfathers mother collected a pension from the state of Florida for her husbands service in the civil war and my grandma, his wife, is from Arkansas another impovrished redneck meephole.

Its really amazing how quickly we forget our history of mistreatment and hatred of others. 200 years ago we wiped out the ENTIRE native american population, a little over 100 years ago we fought a war with ourselves. A war that was fought over the premise that HUMAN meepING BEINGS should be enslaved. meep the south, meep new orleans and meep(not fuk), meep YOU QWEERTY, you are a limey extrodinare.

" A war that was fought over the premise that HUMAN meepING BEINGS should be enslaved. meep the south,"

I live in the south (out of happenstance more than choice) and have learned to enjoy it. There are a lot of beautiful things here. Racism is an endemic part of America, and to relegate it to the south is to ignore the history before and after the war. No war was ever fought on principle, check your premise. I also enjoy the meep out of some fried okra.

I agree, there is beauty in the south, as far as geography goes. I feel truly that the souther states seceded for the soul purpose of maintaining slavery. Their limited economy primarily agricultrually based(cotton), was primitive w/ respect to the norths manufacturing/industrial economy. The southern states honestly thought that that if they became involved in a civil conflict, the England and or France would have their backs. That mixed w/ the Demacratic defections of the time to the brand new and more 'liberal' Republican party, left the south with no choice in their eyes but to secede. Then Lincoln was sworn in and the last few states broke from the union. YAY!

The main point of my earlier rant was to convey the message that the south really hasnt made alot of progress in the last 140 years as far as treatment of African Americans is concerned. I think that is reflected in the the rest of the United States' opinion, hence the "Mississippi does'nt suck" campaign.

Another note, a friend of mine was in New Orleans for mardi gras last year. He was waiting in line for some food at a walk up window. This black lady infront of him moved over to the next line because it was shorter. Some man standing behind my friend said loud 'n clear, 'what are you doing meeper'. My friend said he was in disbelief, not really because someone spoke like that but because all around did'nt look twice or seem to think anything of it. Id like to see that cracker say that in a gas station on Slauson Ave in South Central, or even Atlanta for that matter. It just seems the rest of the country w/ a few exceptions, Idaho, montana come to mind, has evolved and the south has kind of fell behind. Now lownotes article was'nt about race really, but it was about the 'perception' of the south. This is my perception, only mine. meep!

I just woke up, so bear with me.

Race relations in the South are nothing like anyone presumes.

What you have here are distinct social strata among white people, and as a result a clumping of mindsets as well.

There is no segregation in public. We all eat, drink and shop together.

You have to realize something. Most of my state, Mississippi, has a dense black population in comparison to wherever you live. In my hometown of Hattiesburg, fully half - 50% - of the people are black. In the state as a while it's something like 33% or so.

Blacks in the South rarely rise above a middle class income.

So, as you go down the social class ladder - the more interaction there is between blacks and whites.

At the bottom, you have the poorest blacks and whites. They live in close proximity, work the same jobs, sell and do the same drugs, frequent the same stores, go to the same public schools, and so on. The older the poor white people are, and the farther they are from an urban area, the more likely it is they will be more traditionally racist.

In the middle lower social strata you have people like me whose parents didn't have a lot of money, but we weren't living in a ghetto or a shack or waiting in any government lines.

For us, the interactions come in the workplace. My mom worked for a few years in a shirt factory - where half of the employees where black. Now, she works in a group home caring for retarded people, and two-thirds of the employees are black. My dad worked as an electrical engineer, which involves lots of construction work - again, about one-third black. I've worked in restaurants - all the kitchen employees - about half of the staff - are black.

For us, the interactions are temporary. We meet each other at work, trade stories about life, and laugh common things, and then we return to our predominately white or black private lives. But, this brief period of interaction is critical.

You see, because of this, we are starting to slowly migrate into each other's private lives. We go to each others weddings and funerals. We throw parties where everyone we've made friends with at work, regardless of race, comes as well. We visit each other's houses because we give each other rides. We smoke-up together, and we go to bars together as friends.

Among my generation, and the generations younger, you also see and hear a great deal of conversation between blacks and whites where we are actually discussing prejudice and differences. We are coming to an understanding because we are tired of being ignorant of one another. We're all slaves now - to Wal-Mart, and Red Lobster, to Burger-King and Home Depot. These franchises are great plantations, and we are all, regardless of color, the field meepers.

As you go up the ladder the interactions become fewer. The wealthy people in the South are white. The black people they know are the ones who work for them. They do not shop together, relax together or interact socially. So, although these people are more likely to be educated, they are often the most racist.

Don't get me wrong. We still have distinctly separate elements to our lives.

Everywhere you look in predominately black neighborhoods there are black churches, black hair and nail salons, black barber-shops, predominately black grocery stores, predominately black nightclubs and so on. But, this is no different from anywhere else in America.

But, things are changing here, and I'm willing to bet the average white person in the South understands black culture more so, has regular conversations with black people during the day and interacts more often with black people in their private lives than anywhere else in the country.

Among my generation, and the generations younger, you also see and hear a great deal of conversation between blacks and whites where we are actually discussing prejudice and differences.

These franchises are great plantations, and we are all, regardless of color, the field meepers.

Now this is where it starts to get really interesting.

Leave it to Mississippi to get someone named Looser to fix their image...

But, things are changing here, and I'm willing to bet the average white person in the South understands black culture more so, has regular conversations with black people during the day and interacts more often with black people in their private lives than anywhere else in the country.

I'm willing to bet your wrong, seeing how where I love we are beyond "working" on the problem and growing closer. We are the same and we live together and are friends and it doesn't take work relationships to slowly bring us together. We just are.

I don't see how you can assume that because you guys are now finally working on it and slowly changing that you would more integrated than us up here.

My point is:

I think our racism is out in the open, raw and obvious. The pivital civil rights battles happened here. (Yes, the Chicago battles were important) There are more blacks per whites here. There are more poor people of all colors here to interact. There is more oral history here to give first hand accounts of the good and the bad.

Your world, concerning race relations, is phony and apologetic. Your world is in denial. Your history comes from carefully edited books and movies.

No one is ignoring the elephant in the room in the South. So, the progress we have made is real, true and has longevity.

Don't take that the wrong way. There are a meepload of uneducated bigots here; they just admit it. I don't have some sort of skewed regional pride about this place. Once I have my degree, I'll be headed out like everyone else who gets the chance.

I've gone to school with upper-class white people my whole life. I'm friends with a black guy on the team, and one day he was saying to me, "You ever meet a white guy, and you just know he hates black people? Like, he doesn't say anything, you just know." I knew what he meant, because that's how racism works with rich "polite" people. It also works that way with extreme liberals. If they are racist, they'll deny it, but you can tell. The racism in the bay area is that way. It's not about calling someone a meeper, it's about making backhanded comments.

Interesting. I've noticed an opposing effect for the same situation: whites up North who don't deal with blacks can't understand why anyone would be racist. You can tell when they talk about it they're drawing on media stereotypes -- racists are all the same hood-wearing spook-clobbering ghetto-torching redneck, and blacks are just white people with a good tan. In that information vacuum, of course any friction is unthinkable.

I see this a lot in people who have never been South. Kind of the same as, for example, the way no one really hates Puerto Ricans -- unless they live near some.

What kind? The kind that use examples? Or the kind that eat okra?

My point is:

I think our racism is out in the open, raw and obvious. The pivital civil rights battles happened here. (Yes, the Chicago battles were important) There are more blacks per whites here. There are more poor people of all colors here to interact. There is more oral history here to give first hand accounts of the good and the bad.

Okay, so the point is still your racism is out in the open and exists.

And mine simply doesn't exist, at least nowhere near the scale of yours. It didn't matter what color you were when we were growing up and nobody gave a meep. Blacks were friends with whites were friends with asians were friends with indians into infinity.

I'm very glad for your state that you're working on it. And when in various high school programs I participated in where we got to meet kids from the south, we were generally appalled at how racist they were (Texas, I'm looking at you.)

The racism simply DIDN'T EXIST in any meaningful amount where I grew up.

That IS the reality of where I grew up and continues to be when I visit.

vas: What kind? The kind that use examples? Or the kind that eat okra? i am not funny. ha ha.

Seriously: I was raised in a overwhelmingly white community in rural upstate NY, and I suppose I am living proof of your first example; I couldn't ever understand why anyone would be prejudiced against blacks or anyone else, and, in that respect, am probably representative of most of that community. But after living in the South for most of my adult life (Texas, Arizona, and Georgia), and mingled with all sorts - bigots of both colors and also people of both colors that I got along with and liked quite well.

I can understand someone not wanting to live in a bad neighborhood; but I just don't get lownotes' point here. The generalizations you are making (lownotes) just perpetuate the myth, and I think you are kidding yourself. Those ad campaigns are merely a political attempt to whitewash the state's image, so to speak. Maybe they don't hurt anything, but I suspect any real change in people's beliefs is more the result of the passing of time, and the cultural influences of economics and technology.

Maybe you're right about the changes close to your home, but I call bullmeep on your premise that everyone else is incapable of understanding. I know - that's not exactly what you mean - but that's what it boils down to - and I am saying that the degree of truth to what you propose will differ from one individual to the next.

Dreymers:

I don't think we disagree.

The ad campaign is laughable and simpleminded.

Racism is a learned behavior.

I certainly do not believe no one else can understand the South.

The real struggle is based on economic class and race is only a latent property of that struggle.

The end.

Okay, I admit it, I'm full of meep!

I never mingled with any black person who slighted me whatsoever. The closest thing I can remember is driving through the projects with my roommate (he was on disability and paid his rent with crack) and he told me to be careful because the cops would single me out because I was white.

But it wasn't that uncommon for "hip" white people to call me a yankee and question why some kid from NY was living there. Kind of weird, now that I think about it.

I'll tell you more stories some other time. :)

I THINK NOT!!!1!!

The attractiveness of forming a opinion (racist or otherwise) is that it is born out of that person's life experience. In other words, we rightfully cling to what we know. I hate when ANYONE preaches an all-encompassing exhortation of impartial unity. As it stands today, the "real world" is no place to be impartial unless you want it to plow straight over you, take everything you have, and leave you for dead.

"As it stands today, the "real world" is no place to be impartial unless you want it to plow straight over you, take everything you have, and leave you for dead."

meepa please, if your speaking on being 'partial' to one race or another and blaming it on your upbringing, I just think thats a meep way out. I surround myself with people whom are crazy(like me), have similar interests, and are sober(thats a new one). Race has NOTHING to do with the forming, maintaining, and sometimes ending our friendship. Its all about if you can put up with my meep, and if i can put up with yours.

Where I grew up in the San Joaquin valley, there are TONS of hispanics, quite a few blacks, lots of aisians(Laos,vietnamese,etc) and a pretty large Armenian population. Growing up with these different cultural/ethinc backgrounds gave me the opportunity to see that meep is different in other places. There is also alot of farmland around, which means lots of white, redneck-farmers. Quite racist. Then there is Corcoran State Penn, just a hop skip and a jump away. So there are quite a few skinhead/white supremist meeps around too. Gangs, crime, and decent people, all thrown into one meephole town of 114,000 peeps that is Visalia. This is where i grew up, and im grateful.

Its taken time to get such a tolerant attidude. Well, thats going a little far, because I meeping HATE alot of things, just not anything based on skin color. People of all colors suck in my opinion. Really.

Oh, and as far as your comments about social and economic incorporation....that meep doesnt exist. You drive through LA on the 405 going south, one exit is whitebread, the next is black. Segregation is alive and well in this country and the war on drugs isn't a war on ALL people, it's a war on black people. <---troof

This is what I'm inclined to agree with.

Reminds me of a guy we got in IRC years ago who waved the "Southerners aren't racist" flag and when we questioned him on it, he quit in a huff. (Lownotes, I know you're smarter than this guy, so don't think I'm drawing that parallel.)

Won't paste the whole thing cause it's long and boring, but here are highlights. He joins out of the blue one night, talks about guitars or something, then stumbles over Clavis' use of the word niger.

21:18 Clavis> teh King of All Teh Nigers 21:18 LORDKAHUNA> dbridge? 21:19 dbridge> don't 'ticulary for no racist meep 21:20 LORDKAHUNA> whut 21:20 Clavis> it isn't really racist, man...just funnin 21:20 LORDKAHUNA> niger=funnyfreakynumberonesuperfun 21:20 Clavis> it is, however, open season on meepg0try 21:20 LORDKAHUNA> GAYISM 21:21 dbridge> in memphis, we're just kinda funny 'bou that.

21:43 dbridge> yes, i'm new, but i don't like a lot of the posts here: no racial 21:43 vasudeva> that's ok, dbridge 21:43 vasudeva> it just makes you a fuking meeper on wheels 21:45 LORDKAHUNA> dbridge = niger 21:48 dbridge> if you lived in the south:(I'm white) you would have a differnent opionon 21:48 vasudeva> i lived in the south for the first 20 years of my life 21:48 vasudeva> :) 21:49 Clavis> i'll be gotdamned 21:49 LORDKAHUNA> (im purple) 21:49 vasudeva> texas, alabama, tennesee, florida, north carolina 21:50 dbridge> all time....did you ever hate a meeper? 21:50 LORDKAHUNA> no way 21:51 vasudeva> sure, i've hated a meeper 21:51 LORDKAHUNA> th passion 21:51 vasudeva> i think i've hated at least one of everything by now 21:51 LORDKAHUNA> shhhhh 1 g 21:51 vasudeva> haha 21:51 LORDKAHUNA> every one is green to me 21:51 vasudeva> although i haven't met any eskimos 21:51 vasudeva> i'd like to get into hating me some out-and-out inuits 21:51 LORDKAHUNA> Fukin dark green bastids 21:52 LORDKAHUNA> hate newfies 21:52 LORDKAHUNA> or the french 21:52 dbridge> one meeper foe sure.. but akk of them? 21:52 vasudeva> can i hate all meepers? 21:52 LORDKAHUNA> akk 21:53 vasudeva> i dunno 21:53 vasudeva> seems like a lot of work 21:53 LORDKAHUNA> one at a time 21:53 vasudeva> i can give it a shot, if you like 21:53 Clavis has nigers in his family...but can make the distinction between joeking and how life is 21:53 vasudeva> i'd rather capture and impregnate their daughters with my seed 21:53 LORDKAHUNA> Inuit r easier, less of them 21:53 vasudeva> my fat white lazy seed of the devil 21:53 LORDKAHUNA> word 21:54 LORDKAHUNA> brb 22:01 dbridge> goodnite for me, assholes. i'll never join this room again; racist asshioles will never a part of my life. 22:01 <<< dbridge ChangeThis@[IP].midsouth.rr.com quitted

So this guy claimed that the entire South was rising up against racism, brother in arm with brother, to stamp out hatred. He also was largely incapable of actually discussing this -- when his simply claiming it didn't effect an Internet-wide change of heart, he quit IRC.

He came in a few days later, looking for the Paris Hilton meeptape, called us rednecks, called LinkSwarm bullmeep, made a few black jokes (serious), then quit.

Ah, dbridge. You decorated my life.

vasudeva> i think i've hated at least one of everything by now

WORD

I'm going to echo what alot of people have said and agree that yes some of us around here hate each other, but race plays no part in it. Being a dumbmeep or a dirtass might make you a target of hate but anything racial about it is purely secondary.

I hate a guy at work who's an illegal immigrant for instance. Does this mean I hate all illegals? No, it means I hate that specific one for being upstarty and talking back.

I forgot to add that I also I hate when ANYONE preaches an all-encompassing exhortation of impartial hatred. I often find myself somewhere in the middle of each...unity and hatred. Trying to navigate my way through what I know to believe is true and what I want to believe is true. Taking into account my experiences with individuals and people as a whole.

meepa please, if your speaking on being 'partial' to one race or another and blaming it on your upbringing, I just think thats a meep way out.

I wasn't clear...and also assumed that anyone with half a brain knows that automatically judging an indiviual with a blanket discernment because of something they have no control over is stupid (fun but nonetheless stupid). That's not where I'm coming from. I mean to say that there is no way in this fuking world I am going to deny social and economical realities that have caused certain races to have more and some to have less...just so I pacify myself into believing the fairly tale messages espoused by the an agenda stuffed media. Both sides of the social/economic equation are equaly as dangerous depending on where you find yourself on a given Saturday night. Both are equally as giving and heartfelt depending on the individuals you spend time within those groups.

I've come to conclusion that everyone was born a blank slate. You know how I know this...because I was. I've also come to believe eveyone is a prejudiced fuk. It's the way we were built...making snap judgement after snap judgement, all designed to prolong our silly lives and spead our silly seeds. But I won't deny there is some indeliable good part of my brain that longs for a world were everyone is treated fairly and has plenty of everything.

Its taken time to get such a tolerant attidude. Well, thats going a little far, because I meeping HATE alot of things, just not anything based on skin color.

Let's hope so. It all starts with you.

It would also explain their need to migrate north every summer.

Maybe mexicans can sense Earth's magnetic fields like ducks can, and thus always know where true north is and use it to perfectly align fence posts and studs and such...

So I have a theory...

I got to wondering at how well most of those guys work at things like that.

I was watching the mexican neighbor behind me building his porch cover yesterday. Guy used steel posts and headers and concrete tile and I swear it was razor-straight and PERFECT in every way.
