In my South, we don t put a premium on pigment. No one cares whether you are black, white, red or green with orange polka dots.</p> <p>My South is the birthplace of blues and jazz, and rock-and-roll.</p> <p>It has banjo pickers and fiddle players, but it is also has B.B. King, Muddy Waters, the Allman Brothers, Emmylou Harris and Elvis.</p> <p>My South is hot.</p> <p>My South smells of newly mown grass.</p> <p>My South was the South of The Partridge Family, Hawaii 5-0 and kick the can.</p> <p>My South was creek swimming, cane-pole fishing and bird hunting.</p> <p>In my South, football is king, and the Southeastern Conference is the kingdom.</p> <p>My South is home to the most beautiful women on the planet.</p> <p>In my South, soul food and country cooking are the same thing.</p> <p>My South is full of fig preserves, cornbread, butter beans, fried chicken, grits and catfish.</p> <p>In my South we eat foie gras, caviar and truffles.</p> <p>In my South, our transistor radios introduced us to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones at the same time they were introduced to the rest of the country.</p> <p>In my South, grandmothers cook a big lunch every Sunday.</p> <p>In my South, family matters, deeply.</p> <p>My South is boiled shrimp, blackberry cobbler, peach ice cream, banana pudding and oatmeal cream pies.</p> <p>In my South people put peanuts in bottles of Coca Cola and hot sauce on almost everything.</p> <p>In my South the tea is iced, and almost as sweet as the women.</p> <p>My South has air-conditioning.</p> <p>My South is camellias, azaleas, wisteria and hydrangeas.</p> <p>My South is humid.</p> <p>In my South, the only person that has to sit on the back of the bus is the last person that got on the bus.</p> <p>In my South, people still say  yes, ma am ,  no, ma am ,  please and  thank you .</p> <p> In my South, we all wear shoes& most of the time.</p> <p>My south is the best-kept secret in the country. Keep the secret& it keeps the jerks out.</p> <span class="left">This was written by <a href="http://robertstjohn.com/">Robert St. John</a>, executive chef, owner-Purple Parrot Cafe, Crescent City Grill and Mahogany Bar - Hattiesburg, MS." </span><br /><span class="left">Reprinted here with his express permission.
