Is “Little Dixie” a bad word in McAlester, Oklahoma?

At a medicaid expansion rally in McAlester, Oklahoma it was said that the reason why the Motorcade of Medicaid took the path they took to get to McAlester, Oklahoma was because this is Little Dixie.  One of the ladies in audience sounded like she was offended, and said that they are not suppose to use that word because its associated with KKK and illiteracy.

I have heard the term “Little Dixie” used in describing the politics and culture of McAlester, OK & Pittsburg county Oklahoma (generally).  Actually Ive heard the term “Little Dixie” being used to describe Southeastern Oklahoma & the entire Congressional District 2.  I didn’t realize this until I moved to Southeastern Oklahoma.   Though I have heard the phrase “Yellow dog” & ‘Blue dog” very rarely used in white republican or tea-party circles of Southeastern Oklahoma in reference to their white democrat counterparts in the state; but
the phrase “Little Dixie” is mostly & loosely used by white republicans in Southeastern Oklahoma to categorize white democrats in Congressional District 2 Oklahoma.

I heard what the woman in the video said in reference as to why she disliked the phrase “Little Dixie”, but I’m wondering if she disliked the phrase because it’s a truthful disclosure or a reminder of what she does not want to be said out loud.

Let’s be honest about this Little Dixie thing.. the meaning of the phrase Little Dixie does accurately depict Southeastern Oklahoma.  So please lets not pretend it does not.  I know what “Little Dixie” & Dixiecrat mean, as do most African Americans – even though “Little Dixie” & Dixiecrat is not a term that most blacks use.  Reason being that most blacks don’t use the phrase is because its associated with the same political party that Blacks are associated with themselves.  It does not  mean that blacks adore Dixiecrats.  Its a rock & a hard place for black folks, when there are only 2 political parties to deal with.

The needs and wants of black democrats is not necessarily the same as a Dixiecrat.  Whereas the Dixiecrat wants states rights, most blacks oppose this because it would mean a death sentence them & they would have no protection when they are already racially discriminated against & are severely outnumbered.  Look what happened to North Tulsa (which is not even Little Dixie).  I’ve spoke with several blacks in Southeastern Oklahoma within the past 6 months about their concerns and it appears that they are paying close attention not only due to how Congressional District 2 voted in the last presidential election; but they are especially paying more attention here recently to the obvious racial disparity they are subjected to in the criminal justice system & in employment – which BY THE WAY is a system within this locality that’s controlled NOT by republicans.  Remember, Southeastern Oklahoma particularly in Pittsburg & Hughes County is a democrat stronghold.   I  have heard many of blacks in the area say that they will cast a “retaliation vote”.  I think you (the reader) know what that means.  But only time will tell as to what black democrats in Pittsburg & Hughes county will actually do on voting day.  I have asked them to choose their political candidate wisely, but to pay attention to the ‘”low hanging fruit”  – AKA:  local & state politicians.

What I have not figured out yet is how did this Little Dixie thing occur in Southeastern Oklahoma (or anywhere in Oklahoma for that matter) in the 1st place, considering that Oklahoma was not a slave state.

GOP Larry Boggs hides behind eagle sanctuary tax shelter to avoid paying farm taxes which hurt a public school, says Oklahoma voter

Ray Miller & Jerry Donathan being interviewed after Political candidate forum in McAlester, OK outside Kiamichi Center on Oct. 16, 2012.  They express their views on candidate for state senate Larry Boggs & J. Paul Lane.

After a political candidate forum, voter – Ray Miller responded that he will vote for Democrat state senate Paul Lane instead of GOP Larry Boggs.   I was surprised to hear that Larry Boggs had got w/US senator Jim Inhofe to get his (Boggs) farm removed from the tax rolls by having his farm designated as an eagle sanctuary. Miller said that this happened in Latimer county & that it had huge impact on school in Panola, Oklahoma. Miller also added there are no eagles there near Inhofe’s farm.

Considering that Boggs farm was removed from tax roll, according to Miller, he stressed that this hurt the school & therefore Miller doubted Bogg’s sincerity that he would help the schools.

Note: Larry Boggs was the former director of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. Jim Inhofe, a republican, who is the US senator for Oklahoma, is well known for his non-environmental friendly positions.

Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma state Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). Bogg’s opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.

This interview was done outside of the Kiamichi Center where political candidate forum was held (sponsored by Mcalester News-Capital), in Mcalester, Oklahoma. This event was held on Oct 16, 2012 at 6pm at the Kiamichi Center in Mcalester. Approximately 200 people attended.

NAACP – Ardmore Chapter Public meeting Nov. 1, 2012. Crash course on how to vote on Affirmative Action Question & other ballot items in General Election on 11/6/2012

Nov. 1, 2012, in Ardmore Oklahoma the NAACP will be hosting a community meeting to provide information, and to answer questions about several ballot items that Oklahomans will be voting on in the general election on Tuesday – November 6, 2012. There will also be sample ballots shown at this meeting. Also several guest speakers will be present: Tom Cole, RJ Harris, Ardmore Chamber of Commerce, Pat 0wnbey, Carter County Commissioners, Donna Marie Bebo, Brian Spencer.

Ms. Liz Jenkins Williams the president of the Ardmore Chapter of NAACP said that 1 of the main focus of discussion at this meeting will be the Oklahoma SQ (state question) 759, which is an initiative to get rid of affirmative action. An Oklahoma GOP controlled legislature is unashamedly against affirmative action. BOTTOM LINE on HOW TO VOTE on this ballot initiative is to VOTE NO on SQ 759. Also the Carter county propositions 1-3 which will be on the ballot will be discussed. This is a tax issue that not everyone will benefit from.

Time & location of this meeting will be from 7pm – 9pm at the 31 Burton, Ardmore, Oklahoma (American Legion Hall 31).
