A person from the Northern part of the United States of America who carries on the long Yankee history of activism and reform. These include the movements to abolish slavery, and the suffragist movement to acquire equal rights for women (See: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Yankee Abolitionist and Susan B. Anthony, Yankee Suffragist). Logic, reasoning, and education are valued highly by Yankees and used to champion freedom and equality for all Americans. Yankees have a strong sense of civic duty and culturally are known for straight-forwardness, time management, frugality, and thinking on their feet. Ivy League schools in the North are often associated with Yankees and have yielded many of America's top leaders and thinkers.
"The Yankee abolitionists welcomed slaves from the South that had traveled the Underground Railroad."
"The Yankee suffragists sacrificed their safety and livelihoods to win the vote for women."
"Her Yankee sensibilities led her to become a leader in the movement."

2. " I thought I heard a pissed off bird, but it was just a Yankee squawking about The South, which ironically is where they just moved to."

Originally used by British settlers in New York (New Amsterdam) for the Dutch: it's a combination of the names Jan and Kees, very common Dutch male names.
What's that Dutch bloke called? I want to buy Manhattan from him for 1 dollar.

Oh I don't know, their names are so hard to remember. Just call him Yankee, you can't go wrong then.

42.
The greatest franchise in sports history. Fans of this team respect the game of baseball and find no need to speak about the sexual prefferences of members of opposing teams. Fans of this team know what it is to win and thus know how to react to winning, unlike stupid non sports fans who claim they love the red sox.
Yankees rule, for once SHUT UP Boston
