brannon67 Posted February 20, 2012 Report Share Posted February 20, 2012 Ok, I live in Mississippi. I know when alot of you guys hear Mississippi, you think of hicks, rednecks, people who do not wear shoes, racist, and a whole lot of other negative stuff. I admit I used to be ashamed telling people I was from Mississippi. I would lie to them, fake an accent to try to hide it. But, one day I woke up,I read, I researched some stuff. I love blues music, and I learned that Mississippi IS the HOME of the BLUES. Not Memphis, not Chicago, but Mississippi. Mississippi is rich in its music background. Many good actor and actresses, musicians, pro athletes etc come from Mississippi. I know MS like many other states has had its negative feedback, but no longer am I ashamed, because its the home of the blues, and im proud of that.
