Did anyone else watch this tonight? If not, it's on again tomorrow at 8 on espn.
All I have to say is WOW. I admit I have never heard of this story until tonight. I'm 26 so this was way before my time, but I can't believe that just 50 years ago this took place and they first integrated the college. The cheerleaders were running out rebel flags until the 90s. It just baffles me that this is how it was in the Deep South.

You say was, like it's still not like that. If you don't believe me take a drive to any of espn's favorite states and you'll see what I'm talking about.
The state.flag of alabama is still a white sheet with a red x across it.
I'll have to check it out tomorrow night. I think the lineup of the 30 for 30 they have shown so far have been outstanding.
On the DVR and about to watch tonight. Did they talk at all about how the KKK had a freaking rally on campus next to the football stadium a couple of years back?
check out bloguin.com or awfulannouncing.com. Follow me @bkoo on twitter.
I actually live n Nashville and it seems smilar to ohio (probably because of so many transplants), but that's not the Deep South, and I can only imagine areas in Alabama or Mississippi.
It's narrated and written by Wright Thompson. He had a great article about urban in August.

A must-watch. Not all that surprising, yet still disturbing.
They could have easily titled this film "Still Stuck In The Civil War."
And we wonder why we hear so many "SEC, SEC, SEC" chants. They are still aligned from something that happened 150 years ago.
I hope my DVR recorded it
Had my car blow up on Southern Georgia one miserably hot July day in 1993. It was a bad scene.
The black employees were working in the non-air conditioned garage and it was about 98.
Every white employee was working inside at the service counters in the air conditioning.
The attitude in both areas wreaked of pre-Civil Rights days. It was nasty.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Segregation and slavery wasn't really all that long ago if you think about it.
