Has Anyone Else Heard That The Roughest and Most Crude Slaves Went to Mississippi?

I was just reminded of this after hearing a woman retell a story and mention it.

Is there historical truth to this?

Being from Chicago and a son of Mississippi, there is an aggression that black people have in Chicago, that I haven't really seen anywhere else. Chicago nikkas go from 0-100 at the slightest provocation.

I even remember visiting a couple of HBCUs that traditionally get a lot of Chicago folks and finding out 95% of the drama on those campuses were started by Chicago folks.

So is there any evidence that Mississippi got the slaves that nobody wanted?

The saying goes that Virginia and the Carolinas got the 'choice' slaves. And by the time the ships got to Louisiana and Mississippi, the only thing that was left were the rejects.

By that logic Mississippi should have the highest crime-rate in Black America…doesn’t make any sense if black people begin to get rowdy if they move from Mississippi.

Doesn't Jackson turn up? I thought it was one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S.

Some of my roots started in Mississippi.

Something interesting to think about. I do remember a poster on here about 3 or 4 years ago saying how a lot of Mississippi brehs don’t really abide by that southern hospitality mantra, and that both them and Alabama black folks were “mean”.

Living in Mississippi years ago, I do remember folks saying that the drama almost always involved Chicago brehs that were down for school.

OP..

A long time ago, my Great G-Ma who was born In Mississippi told me that my ancestors (I guess on her side of the family tree) were originally from SC that got sold to Mississippi. I guess they were rebellious? Don't know?

So, I haven't done the research to confirm the aforementioned, but from my understanding, slaves who were rebellious did get sold to AL, MS, LA.

It may be possible that there is some truth to it.

Now that you say this, when I think of stories that I have heard about my ancestors from the Sip, I've always heard that they were mean. I never really thought about it, tbh. But my great grandfather, in particular, folks use to say he was an evil m'fer. I heard he used to physically abuse his wife and his daughters. And I'm talking about physically and sexually. Stayed out in the streets. Probably got a shytload of other children. But yeah, he ain't the only one. Seen a picture of him, nikka look mean ass pitbull.

Chi just has a lot of aggressive people. Of all races.
In fact, and we've discussed this before, after MLK marched in Marquette Park in the 60s, he said
“I have never seen, even in Mississippi and Alabama, mobs as hateful as I’ve seen here in Chicago,”

Tough city. When people from there travel or visit other places, they take the mentality with them. Brooklyn has the same reputation.

There is truth to the migrational movements from the Carolinas to MS/LA/AL. Most of the white slave owning families that settled in Lower Mississippi and Northern Louisiana were from the Carolinas and most assuredly brought their slaves with them. And most likely still had business ties to the Carolinas and would regularly buy slaves from them so your grandmother is probably right.
