Confronting Nasty Stereotypes One Sign At A Time In Cordova, Alabama

Recovering from tornadoes that touched down in their city last month, residents of Cordova, Alabama are angry that Mayor Jack Scott has cited a local ordinance barring single wide mobile homes to be set up as temporary housing.

To show their displeasure with Scott’s trailer position--which some believe is rooted in economic discrimination--opponents have protested at public forums. As seen above, some have even brought along signs.

As a Katrina survivor, I can tell you that people here were thrilled to have a FEMA trailer, just to have some sort of normalcy to their lives. On the 5th year after Katrina, the govenment called for all FEMA trailers to be given up. But, let me tell y'all something. It took some people down here nearly that long to get their ins. co.'s to pay. They had no place else to go, but had to relinquish the trailers. There were very very few rentals available, and the ones that were got stupid prices for rent, because they knew they could. Mayor Scott needs to be tossed out of office on his a$$! You can believe if they drove up with a FEMA trailer for me, I'd take it, and hook it up in his front yard! I don't care if it is a law, or city ordinance or whatever, I'd have one come hell or high water!
This was very heartfelt. Except the 'y'all'. That killed it.
Really, explain for us why that "killed it" for you. Was it just too weird for your vanilla flavored northern suburban self?
Well done you moron, I'm not even American you fvcking redneck. The Y'all just shows the whole world the lack of education and over-abundance of inbreeding. Sorry, are your feelings being hurt, I'm sorry, I'll use shorter words next time so you can understand how a burn sounds.
"Y'all" speaks to a lack of education? When Obama, Jimmy Carter, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Al Gore use the expression, does that suggest they too are morons sparky? However, I do recommend that you use shorter words. A review of your previous comments indicates a problem with spelling. Poor education or is it an over-abundance of inbreeding?
Yes it does suggest they are moronic, and have a poor grasp of a language. Review of my comments reveals very few spelling errors, I in fact speak proper English, not b@stardised American English.
A review of your comments betrays and angry, unemployed little wanker sitting in a smelly little urban apartment sparky. If you're going to criticize the spelling or grammar of others then you ought to start by spell-checking your own swill. Toodles.
Gainfully employed senior electrical engineer, nice house in the suburbs. Criticise doesn't have a 'z' in it.
Sure it does sweety. Look it up.
The content of the person's character is not related to their spelling. Their degree of education might be. I have received e-mails from CEO's with terrible misspellings. People in the US are not great spellers!
