They're nicer and friendlier and smile more.
They help strangers, they always say hello, and they're quick to give a hug.
They "Praise Jesus" and "Roll Tide."
They wave from their cars and say things like, "Yes, M'am" and "No, Sir."
People are different here.
They fake laugh and backstab. They smile to your face and gossip behind your back.
They roll their eyes at minorities and say "I hope we don't get any more of those people coming here."
They hunker down in their subdivision on the "safe" side of town and ask the new girl, "So what do you think of black people?"
