You moved here didn't you? Evidently your failed region of the country, probably the Rust Belt, didn't do something correctly as you abandoned it. The Northeast and upper Midwest are losing jobs, population and Congressional seats to the South at such a rapid clip that it can best be described as an exodus. Your father and grandfather were both failures in that they destroyed the place that you called home to such an extent that you had to flee it. The transplants to NC are not at all dissimilar to the Hispanic immigrants in that you're both fleeing failed societies. Your very move here was an admission of failure. How does that feel?
