On a side note, clearly these people are dangerous, violent, and disgusting, but they didnâ€™t do this because the are Appalachians, rural whites, or poor whites. They did this because they are criminals, thugs, and racists.
Recently there was a horrific home invasion in sleepy Cheshire CT, deep in the heart of prosperous Yankee-land, committed in part by a guy in his 20’s from a well-off family. I lived in L.A. for thirty years before moving back to CT and don’t recall a L.A. home invasion anywhere near as sickening as what happened Cheshire. Seriously.
So, I agree, let’s not slime poor Southern whites for atrocities committed by the deranged.
