2. when said in any other part of the english speaking world anyone from the united states
2. in anywhere else most people probly hate yaankees for the same reasons
(not all northerners/yankees are like this, but the vast majority of them are)
Yankees are usually found in and are from the following states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri.
The Mason-Dixon Line plays a very slight role in determining who is and isn't a Yankee, because the Mason-Dixon Line was an imaginary border that was designed to legally set the boundaries of the states allowing slavery, and of the non-slavery states; not determining North and South.
The states that contain the most real yankees are all of the New England states, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York.
Stereotypically, someone who is stuck up and loud who hates Southerners. In reality, they are just people who have a high tolerance for the cold.
2. A player or fan of the New York Yankees beseball team.
In some people's opinion, this team is amazing. In others, this team is a horrible representation of the game.
3. In other countries: An American
Stereotypically, someone who is stupid, egotistical, self-gratifying, and distructive. In reality, this type of yankee has a variety of charictaristics. Some match the above description stated, and some are people who care about the world around them, are knowledgable of American AND world history, and are deeply hurt when others call us, "obese retards who will destroy the world." Some of us enjoy blending in in foreign countries and are pleased when (for example) a French waiter stares at you in shock, after displaying perfect knowledge of French eating habits and having a perfect accent and admitting an American heritage.

Yankees Fan: Well at least we don't blame our losing on a guy whos been dead for over 50 years. What will it be next time? The curse of the no talent baseball team?
