"Most racist place I've ever been"
I've been all over the south and generally haven't had too many problems dealing with overt racism. Bristol was like going back in time 40 years! From the stares to the rude salespeople, I was made very uncomfortable from day one. One our last day there some of the members of our group were leaving a restaurant when some scruffy looking characters yelled "n1gg3rs go home" as they burned rubber out of the parking lot.
