A southerner is a term usually used to describe people who live in the southern united states. Just because you live there doesn't neccesarily mean you are racist or raised with strong moral values. I was born in Toronto and moved to Kentucky a few years ago. I believe it's a nice place to live and only a few people are actually <racist>. Just because you live in the south doesn't mean you drink beer all the time (baptists are STRONGLY against it) or hang a confederite flag. I have friends who went to UK and ended up going to Princeton,Cambridge,and Harvard. I'm tired of people judging me on where I live or where I'm from. Would you judge a Nigerian and call them a uneducated slave because they lived in Nigeria? I don't think so..
Northerner-Do you know how to read?
Southerner-I got an english scolarship from Yale
Notherner-Right on
Southerner-where did you go for university?
Northerner-Oh, I'm taking a break from school right now.
Southerner-But your 45!

a term referring to about 50-60 million people who live in the Southeast. Many of these people are generally good, and the majority of them also have a strong sense of morals and traditional family values, which is very important. However, about a quarter or so of them, usually referred to as rednecks or white trash, are not good people. They only make up less than 20 million of them though, and there are also rednecks in The North, too, so its not just The South.
Southerners (the people who live in the states below Kentucky and Missouri) are usually more hospitable and moral than a lot of people in the Northeast or on the West Coast.

Humans seem to have a desire to categorize EVERYTHING. We all do it. Southerner became an easy way to gerneralize people who had a different culture. For those of us who had never been south of Illinois and East of Kansas ;it was a broad generalization. Referring to people who had hot summers, talked with a drawl,the highest hospitality rating,liked grits,sweet tea and a realxed, God loving life.
A good friend of mine was from Georgia and called herself a Southerner and was proud of it. She said a Southerner comes from God's country. I am a transplant will I ever be a Southerner?

Contrary to popular belief, southerners are not ignorant, drunken hicks that live in trailer parks and eat possum as shown by Dukes of Hazzard and Kevin Federline. Most southerners are well educated and have a strong sense of moral value. And no, not all of us talk like Forrest Gump. Southerners are perhaps the most badass variety of Americans there are and in short, we basically own everything.
Northerner: Haha man that southerner sure is a redneck.

Southerner: Yeah why don't you go practice falling down; I'll be there in a minute.

"Southerner" is a term used by misguided "northerners" to summarize anyone living in the southeast territories of the United States in states such as Virginia, Alabama, or Georgia.

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.
Samuel: "Damn that guy's stupid. He must be a southerner."
