Response to sinkingfeeling (Original post)

Sat Feb 9, 2019, 12:45 PM

11. I'm truly sorry to hear this and it was hushed up.

A lot of my heritage is from southeast Missouri and northeast Arkansas. This is one story I've never heard.

What makes people go off the rail? The town of Elaine is west of Clarksdale, MS and the river.

I've lived around these United States and have always been most at ease in the larger demographic/economic areas. When I am back in the roots area it is readily apparent that there is a lack of racial warmth. Likewise, it's also readily apparent the lack of economic strength in those areas.

I'm aware of the racial history of the southern missouri. Just not on the scale of Elaine, AR.
