Shout out to “Bitter Southerner”

The South, and southerners depictions of the South are getting a lot of attention right now.

Here’s an interview with Chuck Reece, editor of The Bitter Southerner, an online magazine dedicated to telling the complex, multi-faceted, layered stories of the South from every angle.

This quote from the City Lab interview especially hits home for this Southern lady currently living outside the south.

“Anyone who feels that the South is misrepresented … everyone feels a bit bitter about that,” Reece explains. “They also feel a bit bitter about that moment when you move away from the South, and all of your friends are like, ‘Gee, I bet you’re glad to get out of there.'”
