Let's talk about... cotton!

You may think of cotton as a product of Alabama's past, when slavery and, later, sharecropping provided the intense labor that was needed for cotton production.

But Alabamians still grow cotton for buyers around the world!
Nick McMichen's family has been growing cotton in Cherokee County outside Centre for generations, going back to sharecroppers in the late 19th century.

“Cotton is more than a crop,” McMichen said. “Around here, it’s part of us."

Jerry Newby’s family goes back even further. He is the seventh generation to grow cotton on his family farm in Limestone County.

Jerry, along with family members Jimmy, James. John and Elizabeth, works about 3,500 acres of cotton spanning 50 miles.

What is with the #AlabamaSenate and their support of rape and incest? Bc that's what this is. If you want to have a baby with a woman in #Alabama you can just rape her and be out of jail in a few years (if that) and enjoy joint custody of the child. Its disgusting #BoycottAlabama
