Y’all Know What White Folks Like?

If you live in the south and are Caucasian or If you came from a rural setting or blue collar background or just hang out with a healthy amount of salt-of-the-earth peeps, then there are probably a few things that automatically get on your list of stuff you like. You can’t help it. It’s part of your Cultural DNA.

Today’s participant observation-based blog will take a look at that southern-savvy . Here are a few things that fit the cultural sphere of the proud southern tradition:

Pickup Trucks
Tennessee / Alabama and Georgia College football teams
Monster Trucks
Hunting (Deer)
“Hair” Bands (80’s “heavy metal” rock bands)
Boiled Peanuts
Sweet Tea
Chili Cook-offs…

As it so happens, it was Chili Cookoff adventure day for my wife and I. We are on our way home and it will be a long drive home but we will certainly not be short on Gas. 😉

Here are some pictures from the Milller Lite Stone Mountain Chili Cook Off:

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.

Often described as a blog, an online magazine, a journal. When examined further the description changes and it becomes a project, an objective, a mission. American Male is one simple thing. It is a collection of different thoughts and experiences so come share yours and be part of the narrative.
