From [Dear Disgruntled White Plantation Visitors, Sit Down.](https://afroculinaria.com/2019/08/09/dear-disgruntled-white-plantation-visitors-sit-down/):

The Old South may be your American Downton Abbey but it is our American Horror Story, even under the best circumstances it represents the extraction of labor, talent and life we can never get back. When I do this work, it drains me, but I do it because I want my Ancestors to know not only are they not forgotten but I am here to testify that I am their wildest dreams manifest.
