Texas can be divided into two sections, the cities and the rural areas.

In cities like Dallas and Houston, minorities far outnumber white people. The only people wearing cowboy hats are people from other states, and they generally don't go to the cities (for good reason). There is a Starbucks on every block, and during lunch hour, the line will extend out the door. Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio can be very ghetto, in fact. Dallas has the highest murder rate of any city over 1,000,000, and Houston isn't far behind. When on the subway in Dallas, confused tourists will be asking you for directions, while behind you a homeless man will be urinating on the platform, and the people next to you will be speaking spanish. It is indeed a very urban experience (as is everything in Dallas and Houston). People are NOT friendly in the city of Dallas, however, in Houston, people are much more hospitable. Dallasites tend to be very arrogant. 95% of the people in the cities do not have any detectable southern accent, and look down on the people who do.

Beyond the cities and their suburbs, however, lies a completely different Texas. "The Country" is where people in the cities go for recreation (such as camping or boating) and thats about it. People are far less educated than they are in the cities, and have heavy southern accents. Fireworks stands will be on every street, instead of Starbucks, and most people will have a gun. The people here are for the most part seeking a humble existance, and are very kind and hospitable people. People in the cities tend to view these people as uneducated hicks, rightly or wrongly.

That pretty much sums up Texas.

Oh Yeah, Austin is really Berkeley, California reincarnated in Texas.
Californian: You have to be kidding me, you're from Texas? I thought it was only steers and queers?

Texas: ...sigh... and you call us ignorant?

A state of the south-central United States. It was admitted as the 28th state in 1845. Explored by the Spanish in the 16th and 17th centuries, the region became a province of Mexico in the early 19th century. Texans won their independence in 1836 after a gallant but losing stand at the Alamo in February and a defeat of Santa Anna's forces at the Battle of San Jacinto (April 21). Denied admission as a state by antislavery forces in the U.S. Congress, the leaders of Texas formed an independent republic that lasted until 1845. Austin is the capital and Houston the largest city. Population: 17,059,805.

The Lonestar State, The State that still believes that criminals should be punished, Home of the Wataburger, home of Southern Hospitality, HTown, And Everythang thats bigger and better.

Home to Dr. Pepper, several modern and well respected singers, activists, and the like, Sam Houston, and other great men and women before him, numerous plantlife and animals, and a few horrid idiots who give the rest of us a bad name-ie: George Bush.

The biggest and baddest state of them all(15 states can be put into Texas and we'd still have 1000 miles left) where everything is bigger and much better than places such as California. Home of a Ranch bigger than Rhode Island,the home of trunk poppin, Dr.Pepper,home of the first word spoken from the moon which was Houston,home of swangin on 84's and vogues, chopped and screwed music, SA Town, D Town, and H Town which are all 3 in the top 10 most populated cities in the U.S.
The Lone Star State was the only state that was its own country, and the only state worthy of even making a definition of.

If you aint a Texan, you wish you were.
1.Texas is the home of the playas and pimps.

2.Damn, Texas sure is a better place to live in than California...

3.God bless Texas.
