Just so you know not everyone in the south is a racist. I live in the south and always have, but have friends of every race. I'm also not ignorant or dumb in any way. Northerners can't blame us for a dumb president being elected because last time I checked the whole country votes for president, and I don't support him in any of his decisions. Everyone from the north just assumes they know what it is to be a southerner, obviously because you have met us all. I will not lie and say that there are not ignorant people in the south, but everyone up north is not a genesis. I'm not trying to be rude to any one who is from the north, even though some of you deserve it from your comments. I have friends who are from the north some that I even consider to be very close friends. I just didn't realize so many northerners were so judgmental. Don't make generalizations of people that you have never met. Stop worrying about peoples lives in the south, and take a look at your own. You can't hate us all just because you hate where we come from. I'm proud of where I come from. We love it in the south so stop hating.
By the way the majority of us can have an intelligent conversation. Just most times we prefer our southern slang. We do have country accents, but that is just part of our culture. Just so you know not everyone in the south enjoys country music like you all think. I actually prefer hip-hop and R&B. Most of us do have a lot of hospitality, but there are also many who don't.
Most southerners are very intelligent.
We are not all rednecks.
Southern = me
