I’m gonna have to disagree with the rejected by everyone comment, those girls were salt of the earth beautiful, tough, hard working people that we could use a lot more of today!!!! Poor had nothing to do with it back then, you did what you had to do to make it and didn’t bitch about anything and everything! Rant over!

Its okay.
I agree with what you said.
I don't know how to say what I wanted to in my post.

My dad grew up a sharecropper in Alabama in the 30's.
As poor as they came and rejected by everyone.
Poor white cotton farmers were my Dad's parents and his life.
As poor as it gets.
The colored folks had it really bad back then.
As such they didn't really care for their oppressors very much as you would expect.
Trust was nonexistent.
Poor folks like my grandparents were rejected by the whites too.
Too poor to matter.

I am not racist and I hope that I don't offend anyone as that is not my intention.

That was my rejected by everyone comment...
Boy, girl, man or woman, if you were so poor that you had to sharecrop...you were rejected.

Not rejected as much as neglected and overlooked

Just relating my dad's stories.
He wasn't a liar.
Not trying to downplay any of that nor meaning to disparage your ancestors. I’m just trying to say that in those times everyone in that region regardless of color had it rough. Those people are and will always be in my eyes the salt of the earth, hard working, beautiful people that we should be trying to emulate today.

Define rough.
At least my dad had access to water.
