Made the butt of jokes by Northerners. The South is filled with hard workers, some of the most hospitable people you will come across, friendly and down to earth, and are surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is also filled with people who can build, successfully grow gardens, and if disaster struck, generally live off the land. Because they have the wit and skill and determination to do those things that Northerners do not. The South is not full of racists or dumb people, the South has educated people and civilization---also the part of the United States where the most common sense is used. People are appreciative of what they have, and work hard to get it. They have manners and morals, and is arguably one of the calmest places to live in America.

The South tends to have its own feel to it. From hustling cities to winding country roads. From Victorian-styled homes to modern-day houses. It has charm and natural beauty. The people are proud of who they are.
"Stupid Southern idiots. Don't they know how to read or write or even speak?"
"Well, obviously. Nashville, Tennessee, is actually called the Athens of the South because of all of its colleges and universities."

"What's so special about the South?"
"It's naturally charming. It is also home of the Linville Caverns, Grandfather Mountain, the birthplace of Jazz, the Biltmore Estate and Gardens, and more."

I'm proud to be a Southerner. Even if that makes me a hillbilly, a redneck, a flag waver, a backwards fool . . . it doesn't matter! I am proud to say I am a Southerner.

Contrary to the opinion of many northerners, the south is not a place filled with rednecks drinking whiskey, playing banjos, sleeping with our cousins, and beating on black people. In fact, we are actually pretty tolerant, as a whole, of other races and religions (i would like to point out that the biggest riots when they integrated schools were in boston.) We also have a very unique culture including music and literature. A lot of great writers and musicians were from the south, such as B.B. King, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, and Anne Rice. We also contribute to movies as well, since many great actors such as Morgan Freeman and James Earl Jones hail from here. So biased northerners should get a clue, or maybe read Gone with the Wind, the most beloved work by an American author. It's by a dirty racist southerner, I hear.
If Pennsylvania was so much better than the south, why don't you just pack your bags and go back!

basically just states in the south of the united states of america. the south is generally a very nice place to live in, with warm weather and friendly folk; the main reasons so many northerners are moving down to the south. What most southerners don't know is that the 'damn yankees' don't make fun of the South much at all, in fact we never really -mention- the south. We don't bring up the Civil War and taunt the South or anything. Some southerners have this idea that all yankee's think that the south is full of hicks, but this is not true. Yankee's like southerners, so you southerners should learn to be tolernat of yankee's and their culture to. we're all one country, after all.
Southerners say "y'all" mostly and Yankee's say "you guys" mostly. This is one of the many differences between the south and north, but something that they can get over and just get along.

In short, The South is a distinct region of the United States which consists of the same states that seceeded from the union in the pre-civil war era. If you don't know them by now, then you'll never know them. The South is growing at a more than moderate rate and is a lot more diversified than it used to be. The South is the epitomy of amiability but also maintains a great sense of pride. If someone outside of The South "disses" it, a severe ass-whippin can occur.
some idiot: You talk country.
me: What? You don't like my Southern drawl?
idiot: No. You sounded like a dumbass hick during the presentation.
me: I'm from The South, bitch. Plus, I'll be getting my Doctorate while you'll still be hunting for your Master's.
idiot: I don't care.
me: Me either. (thousands of Southerners show up at my defense)
idiot: We're all friends here........right?
