Macon County Line - film setting[edit]

As of 7/30/2014, this article claims "Macon County, Ala." was the "setting" of the film "Macon County Line" (a popular 70's movie notable for making millions on a shoestring budget) and includes a link to the film's article. The movie's article claims the Macon County is in Georgia but also seems to claim the characters where in Louisiana (which has parishes, not counties) when they got in trouble. Perhaps this "Macon County, Ala." article is claiming the movie was filmed there and I misunderstood ?? Tho I saw the movie long ago, I'm not sure if the film directly or indirectly defined the location of Macon County. The reference to "Macon County Line" in this article should be verified.

History - Political Orthodoxy rather than Factual[edit]

There's an interesting sentance here that I find objectionable:

"In the first half of the twentieth century, thousands of blacks migrated out of the county to industrial cities in the North and Midwest for job opportunities, and the chance to escape legal segregation. Those who remained have struggled for employment in the mostly rural county, and population has declined by about one third since 1950."

While this makes mention of a 'great migration' from Alabama/The South/Macon County because of (insert Civil-Rights Era propaganda here) the County in fact experienced continual population growth throughout that period, excepting a decrease following the 1920 Census/Great War of 1914-18, the population has only declined since the agitation and Civil Rights Movement began, and segregation was federally extinguished. — Preceding unsigned comment added by LikkerdySplit (talkcontribs) 21:36, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
