She and her daughter attended "Christian" schools with state funding.

GOP Senator Who Made ‘Hanging’ Remark Attended ‘Segregated’ Academy

The school, Lawrence County Academy, was set up for white parents to avoid sending their children to school with black children, according to the Free Press. Many such schools, dubbed “segregation academies,” were created in the South following desegregation as inexpensive, private educational options.
:snippity:
Hyde-Smith sent her daughter to a similar school, Brookhaven Academy, which is nearly all white despite being located in a majority-black town.

They weren't generally founded as Christian schools, but many of them switched over when the Council schools started failing. Most of the ones that are still around in their original iteration required an investment in the school and the investment was high enough it kept the blacks out for a long while. Council schools (probably half my friends growing up attended these) had outside support and the church schools were supported by the Baptists. I'm not including the parochial schools at all because they were well-founded decades before the other private schools and were already integrated long before the public schools were. We had a very long Christmas break the year MS finally integrated and when we came back, there was a grand total of ONE black student in our school and she was a year ahead of me. Cynthia Turner was her name. Our governor attended the Council school in south Jackson (a double whammy because south Jackson is the trailer trash of the city) and supported it for many years until it finally switched over to a Christian school, although it wasn't a straight-line path because of mergers and closures of 2 other segregation academies with the Christian part.

Whatever you do, do NOT watch her mouth as she talks. It's a trap. It will mesmerize you into a fugue state where the words actually coming out of her mouth sound like normal words, arranged into normal sentences, but it's all a ploy to trick you into thinking she's making sense. DO NOT FALL FOR HER TRICKS!!!

Cindy Hyde-Smith just bailed. Without a second or a wave goodbye to the folk here in Columbus who attended the event. Backdoor. Two days out. For a U.S. Senate seat.

She doesn't talk to or listen to the voters, I have a feeling she isn't interested in anyone's viewpoint other than her own, and she creeps me the hell out. I keep hoping the MS voters have better sense than to send her to Congress, but I'm not holding my breath.

She is totally not ready for prime time. But it's Mississippi, she has to win. It would be a close Alabama shock if everything goes right and that was only 24K votes. It would be awesome. But if Espy loses, reckon Cindy's actions in DC will be more closely monitored next time around. Donald's doing two rallies for this pretty open racist, and the RNC is pouring tons of money and manpower in to drag her over the finish line. In Mississippi. She wins and Democrats make her the face of the GOP. Cindy's going to represent the GOP for the black ladies, surely they'll run out to vote. Sweet. :lol: https://www.politico.com/story/2018/11/ ... ce-1014685

Here's another minor thing I've been curious about since she first made her public hanging comment: to my midwestern ears, sitting (or being) "on the front row" sounds awfully strange. We would say "in the front row" around here. Is this a Mississippi thing, or is it more widespread?

In Arkansas, you would say, "She'll be sitting in the front row. Or, "She'll be on the front row.". Don't know why.

Espy is asking for money with hours to go before the polls open in Mississippi. I cannot inagine that new or more ads will make much difference now. GOTV efforts should have priority; ads might help there.

Mike's GOTV effort is like nothing I've ever seen before. Yesterday alone I got 5 phone calls from all over the country (3 or 4 more I didn't answer that I suspect were his too) 7 text messages supporting him (ACLU, PP, his campaign and the state Dems) and 2 postcards. One printed campaign thing and one that was a blank index card that had been created by hand with colored markers front and back and hand addressed. Every single contact included a reminder to make sure friends and family voted too, gave a link to my voting precinct, and suggested I take someone with me. The text messages all had links in them for precinct maps, polling place times and more info. This has been going on since the general. Based on my R friends' posts on fb, the only thing they are getting is a generic "vote for CH-S" in a text message that comes from "trump" himself. No links, just the message. One local trumpinista was confused about why trump had a local area code and finally decided he just got a local phone because he was doing 2 rallies here yesterday and would be in the state all day. Yeah, because phones only work in the state you're physically standing in. :roll:

Good question, Sugar. I rattled both phrases around in my head and couldn't sort it out. There is no doubt that "in" is correct from a "correct preposition" viewpoint, yet somehow "on the front row" has meaning above that.

Yes, it is a location or placement within the row which is closest to the stage.
But, it is also one of "stature"? that seems the best word to use.

To tease out the subtlety that somehow exists in my mind, I considered what a front row is and when it is used: classroom-where often that is the teacher's pet; church-which is a thing in some cases; concert or live performance-also a thing; sporting event- basketball is a good example; NASCAR- the preferred starting position; fashion show-this showed up a lot in google search.

Of course, there is the Hank Wiliam's Jr. song, "The Girl On the Front Row at Fort Worth".
