Most of those who would use the word southerner would think that anyone living south of Maryland is inbred, retarded, and racist. For the most part, this is completely and utterly *untrue*. Racism is an uncommon thing in most areas, the majority of peoples living in the south having left behind that narrow minded view. As for southerners being inbred, one would have to believe that incestual acts simply halt at the state boarders between the north and south. While "inbreeding" within the human populus does happen, it is widespread and not centralized in the south.
While the ratio of high school graduates to drop-outs is marginally lower in the south compared to the north, there is a larger number of college graduates. This may be contributed to the fact that there are more job opportunities in the northern states and a slightly larger population. Overall, a southerner is the same as any other citizen of this grand country. To think that anyone of the same nationality as your own is lesser than you simply because they live in a different area is indeed incompetent and most definitely retarded.
By-the-by, I live in the south and I'm proud of it. So if any of you reading this want to call me a hick, go ahead. I don't care. Just remember that the Man Upstairs is watching and listening to all that you say and do.
Bill: "Nope, he's from New York."
2) A person that lives in the South. Most of them are friendly, good-humored, and overall: AWESOME! Southerners, being a general term, know the difference between a good ol' boy,a redneck, a hillbilly, and po' white trash. YES, PEOPLE! THERE ARE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM!
Most southerners are very intelligent.
We are not all rednecks.
Southern = me
AKA Best people in the world.
Southerner: Hmm, this description of southerners is definitely a bit misled.
