WASHINGTON, December 24, 2014 — The south more than any other region in the nation has probably served as a bedrock of conservative values, a societal change agent and an incubator for America’s social and political policies. Each century since the end of the Civil War has brought about a new incarnation of the south. It rises as its inhabitants rise and change and with it the nation follows suit. With each rise the south becomes stronger, better and more politically and biblically vibrant.

How the south views itself and how Americans have been led to believe the south should be defined is examined. Equally important is how the region has been negatively characterized, demonized, and tarnished. Who is responsible and what was the goal?

Why protection of life and the bible were assaulted and weaponized by liberals in order to assault the social structure of the south. How did the south fight back and regain its foothold in order to help lead a new Civil War to protect conservative values.

The three part series is laid out from a historical perspective that helps set the pathway which created the emergence of the new south. Did Reagan and Jerry Falwell play a part and what truth was the liberals and Hollywood afraid to show America? What forces were at play and how did a quote from the past serve to launch the new south of 2014? Did the nation benefit from the change?

Were biblical conservative values of the south enough to fight the moral decay that worked to destroy the fabric of the nation and what type of leadership would it take to win against the liberal forces of the last three decades? And why was race relations shattered even before Rev. King’s dream of a colorblind America could gain a foothold? What was the southern election answer to this?

There is power in solutions and the solid south seems to have found the answers that millions of American households will be wondering this holiday season and for the next two years. Read about them.

The three part series is a road map which outlines a journey that southerners and Americans have either witnessed personally or have read about over the last nearly century and a half. It is a distinctly American story from a region that may show in 2016 why the South continues to rise again.

    Kevin, I salute your courage, can’t imagine being a Black American like yourself and
    dealing with the blow back. I’m a huge fan of Deneen Borelli since the early Project 21 days and know that story. I’ve been called “racist” by closed minded folks black and white incapable of discussing anything. What hurts is that not only is it all wrong but it refuses truth or its discovery. I’ve supported traditional African American grievances since I was a kid. You would see these images of racism and not only know how wrong it was but feel it inside. It’s a tragedy that what black folk have endured, struggled and sacrificed for, their historic contributions from day one, have not become a source of genuine pride. It’s a unique story, certainly a hard one but it’s history, a history of standing up, enduring, and being American. These folks should be honored and the best way to show that is for the youth to do what it takes to become educated, well rounded persons of character. The character of Black Americans that I grew up with and experienced seems distant, lost to a dysfunctional culture idolizing the wrong things.

    I’m not sure how we break the cycle of dysfunction. As a human being I think of the
    kids that will die or end up in jail cells. Many of us do. Some of those kids, no matter how bad they become never had a chance the day they were born. And that’s the thing. They
    need good family structures, a decent environment a chance, a chance to be excited with the
    prospect that life can be interesting, offer opportunities. Neil DeGrasse Tyson put it best in a story relating how he got into astronomy. He was fascinated with it from age 9 and then one day something happened. Tyson revisited this moment on his first episode of Cosmos. Pulling out a 1975 calendar, he finds the day Carl Sagan invited the 17-year-old to spend a day in Ithaca. Actually, Neil had an application to Cornell so it wasn’t completely out of the blue. Carl offered to put him up for the night if his bus back to the Bronx didn’t come. Tyson explained of that moment, “I already knew I wanted to become a scientist. But that afternoon, I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to become. “The kind of person I wanted to become”, how do kids find that today? I like most kid perhaps picked from a variety of individuals that represented the best we were seeing and often from just every day people who showed us something.

    As you know, soldiers will form unique bonds because of what they experience. As a soldier back when I was in I could look at that guy next to me, suffering everything the same way and know he and I would give everything we had for each and for the others. Back then things weren’t like they are today. I had to deal with the idea that that guy and others would go back to Mississippi or Georgia and face things they shouldn’t have to, not after “this”. It hits you like wrecking ball. We make a commitment when something like that happens to never just stand by.

    Good luck and don’t give up the fight to re-establish values and save some lives if even from themselves.
