A superior breed of American when compared to the neighboring southerner
. Southerners' main beef with northerners is that northerners "think they're better than southerners". It's not that we think this, we know it. Education throughout northern states has been proven time and time again to be superior to that of the south, and the north doesn't have a rich history laden with racism and hate. Also, while many northerners are cultured and intellectual, southerners tend to ruin the international perspective of Americans, and thus many countries think of us as violent, racist, fat, and stupid.
Northerner: Evening, sir. Fine day we're having, is it not?
Southerner: Yep yep. Great dey fer huuntin faggots.
