A million years ago I had a girlfriend who came from.. I think? Rural Ohio. Rural somewhere. I am old. Girlfriends were a long time ago (but not always from Canada!). But rural somewhere.

Her mother was... scared. Like scared of everything. Whether that was diagnosable anxiety disorder I have no idea. I never met her. But fear was... her defining feature.

I have no idea how you live in rural Ohio and fear black people from Philadelphia, but basically that was it.
