From a yankees prespective:
North Carolina is the complete opposite of how I used to live in New York.
People here range from nice
to rude. The nice
people have class and are polite to everyone
, including yankees. On the other hand the "red neck" kind
of people live low and disgusting lives. Their lawn is festered with
, and they
is mild year round. Summers are hot and the winters are slighly cool. It nevers rains
and their is always a drought. When it snow, it unspectactular. It is only about
an inch and they
cancell school for it. You can go each day wearing shorts.
is big on southern food
. People here love barbeque
and the sweetest and greasest fried food
grits to oatmeal.hey don't know what saurkraut is. Most of the new york style food
resturants are owned and run by yankees who open shop here. The food
is good and offers
to southern food
. Most dignifed southerns won't eat this food
thinks it is to greasy.
loves ACC basketball. They love
it so much that they
make you watch it in school. Don't talk
any of the top name
schools. Let them
do that. The Carolina Panthers, the NFL team, are a real good team who all of a sudden became good. The Hurricanes, The NHL team, is pretty good as well. Their is no MLB team but they love
the Braves. So it kind
of sucks to be a Met fan (which is what I am).
The schools here are not that great. UNC is full
of hicks, Duke
is to presitge, NC State
is for the gifted, and UNCG is for losers.
You need a car to get anywhere. the traffic is not bad and the taxis are for reservation (kind
If you are catholic
(like me) or jewish, you will be discriminated because of the way you practice

says "y'all" and they even
teach it in the schools. If you were
in the south, this word
has to be forced out. Don't ever say "youse" or people will lecture
you on how to speak. Soda is called pop,they
never refer pizza
as a pie, and they
live the phrase "Im fixin
code here is unflattering. People wear camo
and clothing of hunting apperal. But people do dress nice
by wearing polo shirts
and straight leg pants.
One last thing, they
take their confederate pride seriously. To them
, the south will rise again and the confederate flag should be flown from every
house. Mess with
this tradition and the KKK will hunt you down.
To conclude, I will never conform to this life sytle.
Real life situation
I once faced in North Carolina:
my high school knew I was not from here
but I had alot of friends. One day, they were dicussing about what they were going to do for the holidays. I joined in the conversation but they said
to me "We are talking about Christmas, not Huanakah
you fucking kike." I said
"I'm not jewish, I'm catholic
and I do celerbrate Christmas." It came clear to me, these people are so racist
that if you are not from here
, the quickly
judge who you are.
