Hahaha. God, not living in Indiana anymore is bitter sweet. If you REALLY want something interesting to happen, go back to Terre Haute during the Diesel Extravaganza event (Scheid Diesel Extravaganza Official Website Dates, Times, Locations Terre Haute Indiana IN Wabash Valley Fairgrounds). Thousands of red necks blowing black smoke, terrorizing locals, flying Confederate flags, and spouting all sorts of lines like the one you encountered. I've never seen more concentrated hate crime or destruction of property in one place outside of riot areas, and the town fully supports this horrendous event because it apparently brings in money. My minority friends in town during the event always felt unsafe and had plenty of stories that make you embarrassed to be associated with the human race.
Good riddance to that place.
