My Confederate Flag

Rev. Dr. Chuck Currie

No one can claim now it is a flag of heritage. It is simply a flag of hate. Of racism. It is not a flag compatible with being a Christian. For my part, I apologize for not recognizing that sooner in my life.

A Southern Culture Identity Crisis

Johnny C. Sain

What we see today from flag waving, cap wearing, pickup driving folks is not Southern. It's rural. It is country as sausage gravy and cathead biscuits, barbwire and dirt roads. It's a rural lineage stretching across the centuries and across the Atlantic.

Grace vs. Niceness in Interracial Dialogue

Morgan Guyton

How can we define the distinction between niceness and grace? I would say that niceness refers to the complex dance of smiling, posturing, innuendo, laughter, self-deprecation, etc. that keeps a conversation pleasant and easygoing. Niceness doesn't always mean that you're being loving.

I pull out an eclectic array of faux fur vests, and then comes the obligatory medley of opaque tights. Needless to say, jackets with a fall-feel are a must in this pivotal point in my seasonal redux. My classic leather moto jacket is definitely a survivor.

Here in the South, football is a religion. Stadiums are our temples of worship, fight songs are our hymns, and we work ourselves into a charismatic frenzy shouting for our team.

When he opened at the Bryce Wolkowitz gallery here in New York, I was truly excited to meet him. His inaugural exhibit, dark matters, "attempts to visualize his 20 year exploration of dark matter and dark energy (scientifically hypothesized to compromise over 90% of the cosmos)."
