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.
