here's a sad/true/funny (depending on your sensibilities) story from my youth. around 1968 or so, the mayor of Elkhorn City received a letter that claimed a busload of black folk were on the way with the intent of moving into the coming (not yet built) Section 8 apartment complex. Elkhorn City, at the time, was 100% white.
For the next few days, no less than 50 fully armed local citizens--councilmen, preachers, police chief and others--staked out on the rail overpass coming into town to politely (with lead) suggest they turn around. that bus never came, but you'd have thought the japanese fleet was on the way as seriously as the "threat" was taken. i'll never forget it.
times have changed since then. the town is still 90% white, not because of prejudice but because thats the demographic of appalachia. thankfully, nobody seems to mind the multi-colored freaks that descend upon us each October. at least they haven't loaded the shotguns yet, anyway.
