North vs South

A friend of mine told me this old saying, that I think rings true and does not flatter either the North or the South.

“In the North people don’t care how high black people rise as long as they don’t come close. In the South people don’t care how close black people get as long as they don’t rise.”

(This visual uses another illustration by the brilliant Manfred Klein.)
