When I try and explain to my buddies that live up north and in California that the South is really more about manners than racism they kinda look at me funny. But this right here pretty much sums it up. Most all of the friends I've made out here in the panhandle are like this guy. Also this proves one other thing, FOOD is the great equalizer and peace maker.
Now I've never been to a black cookout. I've been to a Mexican cookout and those are definitely fun but this also sounds like a blast. Sign me up for the next one and make sure this dude is there too.
