HFN Editors note:

Rural, Christian, white America is entrenched in fundamentalist belief systems. They don’t trust people outside their tribe, and truly believe whites are superior to all races.

The problem is they don’t understand themselves, the reasons for their anger/frustrations, and don’t seem to care to know why.
