I am looking for any usage of this phrase that does NOT imply white supremacy (if it exists). I don't mean references to "southern" attributes that derive from white supremacy. In particular, does anyone know of pre-1850 usage of "southern way of life" that was not a prop for slavery or white supremacy? I became aware of it in the 1960s as code for segregation/white supremacy, but I need to know of any prior and DIFFERENT uses. Thanks.
