Hello to all, This is a topic that has been bothering me for a while. The topic is "Discrimination against Southerners"

In the past on this forum and in the real world I've heard negative comments against southerners like "All people from the south are rednecks", "All southerners are racists", "Southerners are naturally stupid", "Everyone from the south is in-bread", and also I've heard people from the south being accused of extreme patriotism.

What the heck is up wit this??? I'm from Atlanta, Georgia and I'm not an In-Bread, Redneck, Racist, Stupid Person.

Yes I agree that some dudes from the south are like what I mentioned in the 2nd paragraph, However I have also seen those cases in just about every state I've been in (Even northern states)

-TWA

Of course I'm going to keep it clean. I am more mature than that. However we dont need to take care of it off the Forum.

I didnt say it sucks and I am not a dumb hick. You should meet me in Atlanta next week. You would really like me.

N312RC,

You don't understand. I love Texas, living in Austin, it's a great place. But I'm fucking sick and tired of people saying things like:

Texas is filled with nothin but hicks and rednecks.

Howdy Partner.

Also, compnies like Ford and Chevy play stupid country songs on TV commercials. Texas has chaged a whole lot. You won't see many rednecks or hicks in Austin, Dallas, or Houston. I am not arguing that the South is filled up with these idiots, but not all of us are! I am no kicker, hick, or redneck. Damn it makes me embarrased to live here when people think of us that way.


STOP IT!

I have spent a lot of time in Jacksonville, FL (still regarded as a racist/redneck city, people look at the name and think "oh, it was named after andrew jackson") but the city is just like any other, except you have a lot more people with southern accents (and a hot girl with a southern accent makes her even more hot to me).

To tell the truth, Jacksonville, even during the War of Northern Agression, was always known as a Yankee-leaning city.

Fortunately, now it's just another Southern city, but in the war it was known as a haven for Union soldiers etc.

The truth of the matter is that Yankees and the rest of the world like to stereotype the South... and the fact that we have more charm and grace than most Yankees, (I'm talking High Atlanta society here, folks, not Jeb Bush) doesn't make them feel any better. We are as intelligent as any other people in the nation, and we're (as a whole) just as tolerant.

One problem is that Human Beings like to generalize... and it's very easy to see the KKK (God forbid) or any other Rebel-flag waving extremist organization, and assume that we're all like that down here. Well folks, we're not. (Although I have seen my fair share of Cross 'lighting'... aka burning... in my town - something that I am ANYTHING but proud of.)

If the North laid off the South, perhaps we'd all get along just that little bit better.

I used to live in Arkansas, near Little Rock. I loved it there. People there are friendly there and it seems like people from the South are very friendly, too. It must be all that Southern Hospitality I've been hearing about. I driven and flown out of some nice Southern cities like Nashville, Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Memphis. They all seemed very nice except for Chattanooga. But maybe I was in the nasty part of town.

Ahh, I love the south... (At least what I've seen of it.) I could see myself moving to Virginia, the Carolinas, or Georgia very easily. And I wouldn't have trouble with Texas either (because we all know that's THE aviation state). But yeah, I hate it when people (especially up-tight people) generalize, based on what they see on the news. For example, all that Utah gets press for is polygamists, and declaring "UN Free zones." I've lived in Utah for most of my life, and I don't know a single polygamist. So it's better to not judge a place by what you see on the news.

Discrimination Against Southerners...is pathetic


It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit
25 TWA : DeltaRNmd-80: Thanks for the good words. Jacksonville is a pretty cool city. Those chicks wit Southern accents rock!!! N863DA: You said it!!!!! TWA
26 Blink182 : I will admit, I feel I don't fit the profile of a true "Southerner". There are a lot of texas accents(which I can't stand, and I don't have one thank
27 SophieMaltese : Yeah, it's funny how "all" southerners get stereotyped. There are sections of the south that are largely like the stereotype, but people where I live
28 Western727 : One problem: I just can't stand NASCAR. I think car racing is one of the most inane sports ever. Sorry, no offense. I know how big it is down there.
29 SophieMaltese : I hate NASCAR too...and football, and wrestling, and baseball....what kind of southerner am I???
30 Western727 : Well, I can let the other stuff go, but baseball.... Just kidding...
