Just a thought, and it will be my last one on the subject of the city song of Fayetteville I wrote called: “MY HOMETOWN FAYETTEVELLE.” and I am not and never will be racist.
When is was raised in Fayetteville the cotton mills were a source of income for the people of my community Massey Hill. My Grandmother and Grandfather worked there and put food on the table because that was the only source of income at that time. The cotton mills were a necessity to survive. So cotton mills were not racist they were a viable source of income for those economic times. The people that worked in the cotton mills were hard working people, simple people that had to have a job to provide for there families, No air conditioners, intense heat, and eight hours shifts that were really tough. This was part of my heritage, my family heritage and again not racist. Seems to me that racism lucks in the minds of the complainers.
