a northerner that have very thick accents and are often quite stuck-up. They typically think that they are walking geniuses and act like they know EVERYTHING which can be quite irritating. Yankees often think they have the right to travel to southern states and get the 'right' to try to correct southern 'rednecks' on how to speak, or what 'proper' grammar is. Yankees are often very judgemental of the southern 'rednecks' and put many of them down because they have accents or dont use proper grammar when really it's just the way that the southerners were raised, and assume that all southerners are 'uneducated, incestuous, and racist'. Yankees also have problems admitting when they are wrong and saying sorry, instead they choose to be smartasses about things.

(not all northerners/yankees are like this, but the vast majority of them are)
yankee: excuse me but please use proper grammar in MY presence (even though I'm the one that has traveled all the way to YOUR area I still have the right to correct you, cause like, I'm better than you) okay?

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

Yankee or Southerner (or a redneck) does not depend on where the ‘body’ was physically born! There are a lot of Yankees that were born in the South and have abandoned the south and all of its culture, moving to the north! Just the same, there are people who were born in northern states who have moved to the South and cherish the South, its culture and its history! Some are more southerners than some born in the South who have ‘lost their love of their culture and history’ because of the misinformation, lies, and propaganda they are ‘fed with’ in the US education system! The real ‘redneck southerners’ are those not poisoned with such crap, that passes off as ‘intelligence’, but is usually just ‘smart stupidity’! Yankee or Southerner depends more on where the heart is, than where one was born or where they were originally from!
Politicians and newscasters from the south who have forsaken their 'southern accents' and other parts of their great culture, for the ways of the yankee, usually for the good job and money! Is it really worth it?
