1. Anyone born in Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North and South Carolina. Mostly anyone in the lower contingent United States or even on the Americas continents that rank in the lowest tenth-percentile in education, prison reform, and viability of roads or funding for basic sustainence.

2. Generally anyone with seemingly gentile manners who speaks with a slow drawl or poor grammar as a way of personalizing or refusing proper Standardized English. This chosen dialect is a means of spicing dialogue with specific cultural dispositions or localized terms and values. Often times this group of individuals are characterized by their resistance of homogenization via social processes, inability to spell or exhibit some basic 'ignorance' of standardized education which seldom represents their intrinsic cultural ethics and values.

3. A passionate person who sees life on the sunny-side until given reason to kick 'snobby lilly-white shit dont stink ass when it is believed to be deceitful or plain heartless; they are prone to community-minded ideals which likely represent a long standing difference of values where social accountability can be implied in hierarchical processes.

The use of the term likely references increased resistance to manipulation and change. Such headstrong attitudes have fostered secret societies and mis-aligned loyalties which can sometimes lead to co-dependent behavior such as slavery or usury conditions while being open to rebellion in the form of cult religions and klan rallies which in no way represent the spirit of rebellion but rather the fear of change.

Southern culture is actually all about the pleasures of life and 'takin it to the river' (refer to music of Al Green & Talking Heads) to enjoy some fresh sounds or beautiful countryside with plenty of slow-walkin, slow talkin as a part of the finer things in life like women and music and the freedom to cultivate ones one herbal remedies without interference from national medical standardization.

Southerners call their iced tea 'sweet tea' because it is infused with the goodness of local honeys and flora.

Not all southerners are rednecks or racists but every southerner knows one or two and keeps it all on the DL (down low)because you cant change stubborn people. Dirty South folks will tell ya 'Dont hate the playa ... hate the game.'

For one, this Southerner does not appreciate fascist nationalism when it imposes its Imperial Domination on the land and into the spirit of the people (la puebla) through lies and media manipulation; call me a rebel if you will.

Southerners are inclined to view multi-municipal taxation and electoral college outcomes as injust and thus are prone to disregard laws and statutes randomly in protest of taxation without representation on an individual basis. 'I'ma slow-walk my taxes to uncle sam and we gonna see if he's too busy to notice.'

The low down on Texas, as any true southerner will tell you, is that property owners are the worst candidates to be placed on a jury to decide a persons fate given that they will likely be the benefactor of the defendents misfortune ... a less known fact is that property owners originaly come from the north and pose as southerners because a true southerner knows that you cant map swamp.

1) A general term for a person that lives in the South.

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!
Southerners are AWESOME!

Just so you know not everyone in the south is a racist. I live in the south and always have, but have friends of every race. I'm also not ignorant or dumb in any way. Northerners can't blame us for a dumb president being elected because last time I checked the whole country votes for president, and I don't support him in any of his decisions. Everyone from the north just assumes they know what it is to be a southerner, obviously because you have met us all. I will not lie and say that there are not ignorant people in the south, but everyone up north is not a genesis. I'm not trying to be rude to any one who is from the north, even though some of you deserve it from your comments. I have friends who are from the north some that I even consider to be very close friends. I just didn't realize so many northerners were so judgmental. Don't make generalizations of people that you have never met. Stop worrying about peoples lives in the south, and take a look at your own. You can't hate us all just because you hate where we come from. I'm proud of where I come from. We love it in the south so stop hating.
By the way the majority of us can have an intelligent conversation. Just most times we prefer our southern slang. We do have country accents, but that is just part of our culture. Just so you know not everyone in the south enjoys country music like you all think. I actually prefer hip-hop and R&B. Most of us do have a lot of hospitality, but there are also many who don't.
Most southerners are very intelligent.
We are not all rednecks.
Southern = me

Someone originally from one of these states: South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and a scarce few parts of Florida. You can not become a Southerner, you must be "Natural Born." Being a Southerner entails being appropriated to the best food, music, lifestyle, and attitudes in the world. There is nothing that can't be sorted out between two proper Southern gentlemen. "Southerner" is not to be associated with redneck or hillbilly, as these are terms for white trash and can be found anywhere in the country, not limited to the south. If you are in fact lucky enough to have a true Southerner as a friend, you will have at least one friend for the rest of your life. All Southerners are not "country," as it were, but country is for more accurate than "redneck" as country just means, from a rural area.
Being a proper Southerner myself, I find it inescapably vexing to be considered in the same league as a redneck.

In my opinion, the south is a nice place to live. I actually do have an education, I don't practice incest, I don't have an 'atrocious' accent, in fact none of my words sound at all like they have any accent to them at all (I know, this is amazing, as I'm a stupid southerner right?), I'm not prejudiced, and I'm not retarded as most would like to say I am. I do disregard most of the prejudiced comments made by northerners. I don't even say y'all. I mean, if you want to talk about people that are described by the examples I have just mentioned, call them rednecks. There is a difference between these two classes of people. Rednecks do have an atrocious accent and are sometimes prejudiced (not always). If you're going to put comments such as have been posted before about southerners, re-title them "redneck" "white trash" or something else. I know that most of the northerners call us stupid and generalize all of us into one group. That is just not the case. I'm sorry, it really isn't. You all call us prejudiced, yet look at your own comments. I'm tolerant of all races. I even have friends from New York who I constantly have to hear putting down the south. But I tolerate it, and I move on. Wow, aren't I such a southerner, what with my horrible grammar and lack of an education. I also don't think the south will rise again. I prefer our nation united, as there are good contributions from every part of the country. At least I'm not insulting northerners. ;]
Northerner: I'm going to post something on the internet about southerners! This will be completely based on opinion and backed up by absolutely no facts at all!

Southerner: Hmm, this description of southerners is definitely a bit misled.
