To me at least, “Southern Pride” (and the historical presentation of it) may tend to focus more on the positives – but no more than the rest of the country when it comes to “hiding” from our past. We ALL share the guilt of our forefathers whether it was unjust treatment of  blacks, indians, or women. Pointing fingers (over and under the Mason-Dixon line) is a futile effort IMO. We (the white man) commited some bad acts, made mistakes, and hopefully the majority of us have learned from them.
