Mississippi, Meghan, Mississippi Delta discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show


And so those plantations were self sufficient and so those people never left implantation. I know people right now, there's four guys that I know I grew up with, they're still living on that plantation. But they don't work like they did then. The plantation only just left them land. But my family 300 years of slavery on the plantation, but grew up in that plantation life, but during that time period, why do a bit that was non plantation sharing full? Lounge, Mississippi. All these plantation owners had until two network of income, you know, now that I know about myself and I can look back at it, I can reflect on some things that, you know, it just brings tools to my eyes because to my heart because you have to survive. You have to understand how to survive. And my mom and dad couldn't lead a rape, but they understood certain things that could teach you alive. And every kid on every one of those plantations knew that. So they knew how to stay out of trouble. The ones that knew how to stay out of trouble. But the plantation life was just sufficient. We had traditions and people were strong till that time period, but I can just see the difference because when negative average got killed, I got a brother to sing me this camera. You look at the mouth as you look at the lungs that you would go coordinate. It's like ten miles apart. He was 15 years old when Meghan was 13. And he left the state of Mississippi and so bad. But these things that went on in the delta as the young youth, you know, understanding the people that you call with inflammation is going to carry tradition to tradition my mom couldn't read it right, but she could cook 300 recipes and she could make, I know my mom made German beer. And we don't know how she maybe she made several types of wine. She was the head cook at the elementary school, but there were people in the Mississippi Delta on those plantations that had different characteristics that carried with their kids throughout their life. And my mom never said, I didn't know the things that were happening. I didn't know who were politicians and who was leaders because they didn't raise us anyway. They raised us to love, care, protect, and do the best you can do. And I was the numbers guy. I had no idea. You know, when I graduated, I got a scholarship out to Oregon. I finished there in Oregon and I've been an aerospace in general for the last 39 years of my life. But you can't help. But reflect is shit that went down. And as you pursue it all, you understand those types of things. But then you have to get out of respect to those parents, who's diligent. They were hard, they had to understand the ecosystem. They couldn't read or write. You thank God until people 'cause they can't read or write. I'm not gonna let you in heaven. That's bullshit. I'm sorry, sorry. But people know. People live a fire, and they understand and face your life. And I just all I want to say, these types of things are being found out because the natural being the corn with technology. We finding out things that we never knew in the past, but I just say, I'm a strong an American. I'm a black American. I'm proud of myself. And that's all I got to say. I just want to share that because I don't know if people knew that these type of people lived in the state of Mississippi and people migrated from different places all over the world. And that's what happened to me in 1981. And I just wanted to thank you so allow me to talk about this. Will I thank you very, very much for sharing that story. That's absolutely remarkable. Thank you, appreciate it. Phillip. Is up next. Hey Phillip. Hey, Paul. I was listening to you talking to the guy about the book..
