I keep hearing about all the new RVers and all the new coaches everybody is excited to buy yet KOA, the big name in RV Campgrounds, is building Glamping Resorts where no RVs are allowed? I find that odd.

Enjoyed the Rubenstein’s story. She has a pleasant way of writing about negative things they encountered without coming across as negative.

Regarding the black family who made the stupid decision to travel. First off, as we travel, we see many black families RV’ing. We are in the south and for the past 2 years have traveled here extensively. Not a high ratio of black to other, but definitely many. All were treated with the same respect of any other traveler and all returned that treatment towards us. There decision to ignore safety at a time when Corona Virus was rampant, leads me to believe they felt they were exempt from rules and suggestions. A white cop came to a location and was up front, told you why he stopped in, and returned the ID’s and left. He told them he responded to a citizens call. But the writer thought it appropriate to expound upon how scared they were that he might return. Where is the racism in that statement. I agree that there are some serious rednecks (especially in our area) who drive around with a confederate flag on display. However they have as much right to do that as you have to object to it. I personally don’t do things that I know some folks feel strongly against. But I also feel that racism and bigotry oftentimes start with a persons perception and finger pointing. If you look at things with an attitude of racism, you will find it.

I think you are missing the perspective of the family. I didn’t see anywhere that they “thought they were exempt” from any rules. Being stopped by the police is rare for most folks, but…many of my friends have been stopped for nothing more than “driving while black”. As for the guy in SLC, I understand their concern. When were you ever stalked by someone else? How might you feel? (strange town and a guy driving back and forth like a stalker)? And… you’re closing comment says a lot about you also.

Once again from one who does not understand and is not trying to understand, a final judgement…..

Point of Historical order: The civil war was fought to “preserve the union” not to free the slaves. Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves. So why has the Lincoln memorial been defaced?

Who did the defacing? Stop jumping to conclusions, or is it your thoughts and beliefs exposed…

“scrutinized by a guy whose car flies a Confederate flag and just won’t seem to go away” A very raciest Statement. Many fly Dixie flags because they are proud their southern upbringing and history. NOT because they hate black people. Some black people even support the flag. The very statement, against the flag, show prejudice in itself.

How about someone driving back and forth past your house displaying a Nazi Flag? Sure, that is just a historical display if he is of German descent.

I agree with your comments. Unfortunately, the Confederate flag has been so demonized that people think it’s a symbol of racism. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact that this flag is associated with the South and racism is the continuing defamation of the South. To the educated, there was/is just as much racism in the North! The Confederate flag in no way had links, unintended or not, to racism.

I am glad the Rubensteins were able to enjoy an overall good experience on their maiden journey. It appears that the police officer was doing his job in an unbiased manner when checking out the apparently racist complaint about loitering in a class A.

I use to work at The Hermitage,Home of Andrew Jackson. Tourist could ask some funny stuff or make funny comments. One was looking at a map when we had Territories. She asked why the map was not finished? Another was coming through the welcome center and asked if the mansion was in the museum. We got this question daily Do you ever see ghost in the house? The best one was where is the bathrooms in the house. Lots of laughs everyday at work.
