I was born and raised in Houston.
So lets tell the truth.
-The weather in Texas changes very rapidly, and we get a bit of everything, except snow. That doesn't come around very often.
-We don't get married to our sisters or even distant cousins. A shock. I know. If you want to see some of that go to Oklahoma.
-Not everyone here talks with a distinct country accent.
You have to go to the smaller towns for that. Lufkin, Etoile, Waco, etc. It all depends on what area of Texas you were born in. People move here from New York and California all the time, and we don't sound any diffrent.
Our slang is the only true thing that seperates us.
-Yes, we have racism here. Just like any other state, but it's not as bad as people make it sound. The Africans, Mexicans, and Orientals, etc. out number us by more the 50%.
-Taking hits to our pride by informing us we cuss to much (yes, 'cuss') is low. We cuss just as much as anyone in California, or Florida would.
-No one walks around here in in full cowboy uniform. So if you think we do, maybe you should visit before opening your mouth.
Of course you are going to think the place you live is better than Texas. What kind of dumbfuck wouldn't stick up for there state, and if you wouldn't. Why the hell do you still live there?
