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 junk, they hate everyone, and they are stupid.

The weather 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.

This state is big on southern food. People here love barbeque and the sweetest and greasest fried food.They preffer 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 a alternative to southern food. Most dignifed southerns won't eat this food because they thinks it is to greasy.

Everyone loves ACC basketball. They love it so much that they make you watch it in school. Don't talk shit about 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 of wierd).

If you are catholic (like me) or jewish, you will be discriminated because of the way you practice your faith. Within every mile there is a bapist church.

Word of advice, never pull out your rosary.

Everyone says "y'all" and they even teach it in the schools. If you were not born 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 to."

The dress 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:
People from 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.

A state on the East Coast of the US, in the South. For some reason, every loser who decides they can't hack it on Long Island moves or plans on moving to North Carolina at some point in the future, just because they think life will somehow drastically improve for them and their pickup truck, kind of like how Florida used to be. This behavior has been going on for almost 20 years, and tens of thousands of Long Islanders live there now, despite the absence of New York City and actual culture.
I'm moving to North Carolina, because my 2-ton Dodge pickup truck is slightly less ostentatious there than it is in Deer Park.

Good state:
Lots to do. Best waves on the right coast. Best music scene south of NY, east of Omaha and north of Gainesville. Fun cities, relaxing countryside. Great schools. Tons of laid back people who are open minded and fun to be around.

Bad State: Ignorant racists. No public transportation. Hog shit filled rivers. Too many far right churches. Terrible snowboarding. Redneck ass basketball fans who didn't attend their school of choice (that goes for us Dukies too).
North Carolina, pretty much like everywhere else.

North Carolina: A weird state where the cities have absolutely no side walks, no bike paths, everyone is in their cars. A state were people actually have accents and like shopping in malls, where most of the teenagers have no taste in clothes or they cannot afford to shop at Anthropologie and instead huddle up in the Abercrombie and Fitch, and where the schools have inside cafeterias and everything is inside
Californian: I swear to god there are no side-walks in Charlotte, and just because its November, people look at me weird for wearing a skirt, from american appeal, which they do not have here! I hate North Carolina. Oh and none of the kids here smoke weed, the only thing their smokin' is cigarrettes, god their so stupid.

Caliornian 2: I'm so sorry.

Where you can marry your cousin. Just not your gay cousin.
North Carolina is a state where many (sometimes really weird) kinds of marriage are allowed, but a gay marriage impossible.

A state that just simply is awful. One of the few asshole states who winters can get to single digits and summer to triple digit temperature. the people are mostly rednecks and hillbillys. they brag about how much laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnndddddddd theey have and yes they say and spell it like that.If u go there everyone has too buttfuck UNC basketball since they cant get into a Private college like Duke. Horrible education and schools. Illegal drugs and alcohol are a daily part of life. Unfortunantly i was born in this state and until Im 18 i am stuck here. At least its not Alabama is the only bright spot of this state
man from North Carolina : Howdy duddy partner, sweet tea and watch UNC game.

Man from somewhere with class: WTF is sweet tea?
