Ryan Grim is a genocidal maniac just like AOC. They pretend southern states/right wing are a threat/confederates/extremists etc to justify left wing of capital (aka Democrats) discriminating against, criminalising & exterminating rural white* workers.— Aimee Terese (@aimeeterese) June 20, 2021

In the 19th century, Democrats used to claim that their “Black Republican” opponents at the North were determined to degrade Whites and Africanize America. They weren’t merely interested in civil and political equality and wanted to go beyond that. Instead, blacks were being put up on a pedestal to be worshipped as religious icons by self-flagellating Yankees descended from Quakers and Puritans. This was a popular stereotype of the East that was widely held by Southerners and Irish Catholic immigrants.
Note: In the 20th century, the Yankees had more success in educating the descendants of European immigrants in their public schools.
