Those who know the History would also know about the issue of Slavery.
Racial segregation and insults were a part of the Psyche till some time back, though I believe it still exists against the colored though it does not rear its head outside often.
From what I read and in between the lines colored are tolerated, Non Caucasian President notwithstanding.

“A group of scientists hopes to find out whether five large underground vaults were used to house slaves. So far, they’ve found little more than pig and rat bones.
Luciana Spracher, director of the city’s research library and municipal archives, told the Associated Press many believe the vaults beneath Bay Street were used to house slaves before they were auctioned. It’s just never been proven.
The 1840′s-era vaults were designed by architect Charles B. Cluskey as part of a city project to prevent erosion in the area and to raise the public walkway above it, making it even with Bay Street, according to the Savannah Morning News.
“Over the years the question of what these vaults were used for has been very interesting,” Blake Ayala, a GSU graduate student, told the Morning News. “We know they were used for storage, and we know for as many as 100 years — up until this last November — we’ve been using them for parking.
They started the excavation in November of 2012 and hope to eventually start a restoration of the vaults.
