CA->MS roadtrip

Just got back from a two week roadtrip from CA to TN and then MS. And nope, not with my car but another forum member's M Roadster. Props to the first person to guess who.

Winner! Lol didn't think anyone would guess on the first post.

Thanks, yeah it was fun. I have roadtripped around most of the US but I hadn't been to eastern Tennessee or south of there at all. Chattanooga was really pretty and great driving roads. The gulf coast of Mississippi is nicer than I thought it would be. I only got to see New Orleans briefly but it had some great architecture and looked like there was quite a bit to do there.

Nice pictures! Did y'all come across on Interstate 40, 20 or 10? I did a similar solo trip in July: picked up my ///M Roadie in Denver and drove it to Northern VA via MS. Went through parts of CO, NM, TX, OK, AR, TN, MS and VA. Unfortunately, it rained on me most of the trip but I did get a couple of nice days for some top-down Interstate cruising.

NICE! and that hardtop is hot!

and what exactly does "AMERICAN OWNED" insinuate? perhaps I''m reading too much into it but is it similar to sayng "white owned" or "black owned" like in the LA riots?

It's the south. It's to draw in people that don't want to shop at colored (any color besides white) people's shops.

Hmm, sorry I never assumed that "American Owned" was a racist term. I always took it as a way of proudly displaying that you are purchasing products from an American citizen, therefore supporting your country. Same as buying products with the label "Made in America". It's a sign of patriotism, not racism.

sometimes... our country is a giant heeping pile of poop. unfortunately, people that act like they're still in the 1800's can't be swayed or persuaded to expand their views.

what i'm really getting at is... even though i'm "white", words like that stick in my throat too. and i bet a vast majority of the forum runners here feel the same way.

hate, for any reason other than ethical wrongs, is intollerable. the last time i checked... skin color, religious faith, and general intelligence have no ethical value, let alone inherent evil.

and to their lack of irony, a friend of mine is an immigrant from Bosnia. he recently received is US citizenship and has opened a business. should he not be able to post a sign saying "american owned"?

Yes, he can post a sign saying that if he is an American citizen. What would stop him from doing so? Since when does saying you're "American" mean you're "white"? According to Wikipedia only about half of the US population identify themselves as "White".

yeah, ignorant racism will always exist, and I have a peace with that. But what really bothers me is that they should have just said "white owned" or even "white American owned" I really pray that these people will understand Grace one day, and not find worth in the color of their skin...sigh -_-

Why would they say "White Owned"? How do you know they are white? You're saying it isn't possible that they are foreign, emigrated here, claimed citizenship, opened a gas station and placed a sign proudly displaying that they are Americans?

this also validates the Top Gear epsiode, where they drive through the south with "funny" statements on their cars....

no, I'm going off what it means to be "american" solely at that gas station. Unless I'm completely wrongfully assuming.

But to be clear,I do share your sentiment that American owned means just that, with nothing insinuated.
