Sundown Towns?

The following information will be of little interest to most who visit this page.  Sadly, pieces about race are sparsely read if at all, and it is a fact despite the reality progressives read this page far more than conservatives.  More specifically, the reality is many progressives also do not care to explore issues of race, especially when the exploration includes items such as this:

This young racist was fired from her waitress job for the following academy award in winning performance. Notice the night time setting...wonder if someone knows the dark (excuse the necessary pun) side of US history.

Waitress fired after appearing in 'n----r-hunting' video says she’s 'so sorry,' claims she isn't racist and has black friends

Compliments to the make-up crew.  Now, why was she fired? 
Tabitha Duncan lost her waitress job after an offensive video went viral.
Oh, Tabitha..and word has it you now want to join the US Air Force and you are saying you are not racist. Now really....why not wear it proudly as former Trump adviser Steve Bannon told a European audience. 

Earlier I made a reference to the evening setting.  How about some US history? 

Sundown towns, known as sunset towns or gray towns, were all-white municipalities or neighborhoods in the United States that practiced a form of segregation by enforcing restrictions excluding people of non-white races via some combination of discriminatory local laws, intimidation, and violence. The term came from signs posted that "colored people" had to leave town by sundown.
From the book by James W. Loewen
These communities are sometimes called "sundown towns" because some of them posted signs at their city limits reading, typically, "Nigger, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On You In ___."
