I met a lady today who told me on a road trip last year they (her and some church members) drove through some small town in Mississippi and she saw black people out picking cotton just like you see (and/or would imagine) in slavery movies and humming spirituals....Confused She swore up and down that she saw this with her own two eyes in 2012....Shocked

WHAT??? This can't be true....could it?Confused

as long as there are still cotton fields, I do believe that there are still blacks who pick cotton

I think it's an urban myth.

Sort of like how everyone all of a sudden knows someone who knows someone who knows a child named La-ia (LaDashia).
