1. In the southern states, the term YANKEE is used to identify someone from a northern state, especially those that happen to be from NY. Some southern folk dislike yankees because they assume that the northerners are rude individuals. I think its just a misunderstanding of cultures.
2. When a New Yorker travels to another state, they may refer to themselves as a "yankee" to let everyone know that they are from the same place as the all time best baseball team in the world (not boston...they suck)
1. "BAMA": Say folk, you talk funny. You ain't from down hurr. You must be a yankee.
"YANKEE": Nah son, I aint from these parts, im from Brooklyn.
