Help For The Misinformed
Dear SHNV Friends,
I am starting a new program and mailing list just for detractors and overt enemies of Southern Views. They will be invited to read and must accept and be willing to read selected materials before anything will be sent after the first essay. They will be offered an "Understanding the South and Southerner’s" ARCHIVE mailing from the Virginia Heritage and North Carolina Heritage Foundation of essays largely written by academics and well-documented that tell our story and giving our worldview. It may help our situation some. It is often surprising what people are willing to do if asked. Hopefully this will be worth the try. Several of these folks have been willing up to this time to read my regular ARCHIVE mailings and some have begun giving me unexpected positive responses to learning about our culture.
I will serve as personal contact and personally take time to answer each email that is generated from these folks as I already do for my Heritage Foundation folks. I need email addresses and names of 1) key school personnel, administrators and teachers, 2) media persons, reporters and their editors, 3) churches 4) state, city and county government people and 5) other community leaders who are poorly informed as to the nature of Southern culture and our religious agrarian way of thinking.
