I understand, but I just don’t feel like the things I mentioned in my op come from the bad so to speak. It’s impossible to know how the south would be different if our history different, but I’d like to think we’d still be considered genteel! it’s not that it’s being proud of the good and ashamed of the bad. It’s that so much of the good was born out of horror. It’s the contradiction. The good and the bad shouldn’t be separated like that. Please don’t take this as to say you shouldn’t be proud of the South. Life is full of contradictions and multiple truths. She was a lifelong resident here in Detroit. Her father was a respected pastor here and Ms. Franklin might have sometimes stayed in other cities, but Detroit was her home from childhood on! She was a well known fixture for decades upon decades! When Aretha was 2 years old , the family relocated to Buffalo, NY. By the time Aretha turned 5, they had permanently relocated the family to Detroit, where they stayed.
The only mention of Aretha Franklin was by Patterson Hood of the Drive By Truckers, who mentions that his father played with the Swampers, the in-house session players at Muscle Shoals studios, where Aretha and many other famous R&B artists recorded. Great analysis! Positive things about the south: the food, helping our neighbors (we have to adjust this to mean ALL our neighbors), being polite and smiling, allowing people to merge, supporting our soldiers, and respecting our elders. Great piece … really nicely done and with a message that tries to unite not divide. Thanks (a northerner).
