I love the ways of the southern people. They are nice to your face, they'll even hold the door open for you.

But they'll never let you forget you're not wanted.

Nice, nice group of people.

Thank god there's more then them down here.

Let go of the Civil War already!!

The "country" in NC isn't like the country to which a northerner may be accustomed.

There are many church burnings in the country. A couple of summers ago a church was catching on fire every other week, after the strip club went up in flames the church burnings stopped for a while. I think I remember two churches 5 miles apart a few weeks ago that were burned --- only one was deemed as an arson (if anyone can believe that!)

Then there's all the killings in the country. It's nothing like the country up north, so be careful where you move. People are shot all the time down here, half the time by their relatives which does cut down on future crime.

The meth labs are all over, too. There's so many the cops can't keep up.

I grew up in the sticks up north, and appreciated it. Down here I keep to the suburbs.

And to the southerners that don't like what I'm saying ... don't worry, I'll be going back up north as soon as I don't NEED to work anymore.

It is not about the civil war. I don't think of that. Don't really care about something that happened 150 years ago. Doesn't affect me.

I just think that there are serious cultural differences, particularly between the south and the northeastern bada bing bada boom Yankees. It's like we speak different languages. These Yankees are an aggressive impatient breed of people. Why I was just in the grocery store and the line was a little long and the cashier was slow. Well most of us just stood there and took it. Then there was a Yankee in line. He started huffing and puffing. Cursed under his breath, paced back and forth like a caged lion. That's when I said, "you're from the North aren't you?" "Yes," he's proudly replied. "I'm from New Jersey."

I'm not saying all Yankees are like that. I've met some nice calm Yankees. And some mean cruel southern rednecks. So the pendulum swings both ways. But Raleigh and especially Cary are overrun with aggressive Yankees.

Raleigh can't build the roads and schools fast enough to accommodate the Yankees invasion. There's just too many pouring into this area to escape the northern horde, looking for jobs.

Now if these Yankees would move to the rural areas to balance out their migration patterns that would not be so bad. But yes, there are too many Yankee refugees in the Raleigh area. And no, we would prefer that the Yankees contain themselves somewhere else. Or at least send some of the mean rednecks up north. That way we could at least have an exchange program and the schools and roads weren't overcrowded.

I'm referring to the cultural differences. Yes, we are all Americans, but to southerners you will always be Yankees first. Sorry, but that's just the way is down here.

We are relocating to Raleigh for job. Reading this board I'm a bit concerned. I understand some of the frustration the natives feel, yet don't totally agree with their tactics.
I'm a Midwesterner by birth but have lived in the south for 25 years. Having moved south before it was cool, I consider myself a naturalized southerner:). What many northerners don't realize is that they move south for a better quality of life but then get here and complain it's not like where they came from. They then try to turn their new home into what they left behind causing their new home to no longer resemble what drew them to it to begin with. Having lived in several northern transplant locations, I've seen it time and time again. Do all northerners do this? No, but it seems the loudest, most rambunctious do and give everyone else a bad rep.

That said, where is the best place for a family with southern bred and raised children, who say yes ma'am and NEVER address adults by their first name, live by the good book and (gasp) own guns, hunt....to live? We would like at least 1 acre+ and our price range is $550k-$700k. Thanks.

I think you put it nicely how southerner feel. I should say that "some" not all northerners come down here and try to "change" things more to their liking. That's what really irritates southerners.

As for your question, Wake Forest is nice, as are many neighborhoods in North Raleigh. If you're looking for an acre of last you want to look in those locations. You're more likely going to find an acre in Wake Forest. You can also look in the outlying suburbs, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, but Wake Forest is nicer. North Raleigh near North Hills is also very nice.

I have heard the southerners don't like the obnoxious northerners, many times.

I have also heard that the southerners don't like the northerners coming down here telling them how to do things, many times.

Besides the out-of-towners asking that slavery be abolished please feel free to give as many examples as possible to what is refer as the "the northerns coming down here trying to change things". Is it the Italian food? Educational requirements? I have always been perplexed.

Not liking people because they are obnoxious is a totally different issue then the northerners telling the southerners "how to do things". I have never heard any examples, just the overarching sentiment.

The reason I am writing this post is because I was part of an art group. A southerner kept on insulting me although using "the man at the check-out" as an example or "the woman at the bank". I no longer am part of this art group because of this harrassment. The only answer I got from this person was that northerners are obnoxious. Never did I hear anything other than that. Now, if this person (a southerner) only realized they were the most obnoxious person in the room it may have been possible for me to enjoy myself as the others were.

Cary has lots of different kinds of people -- you'll be welcome there. And your 13 yr old son is a perfect age for this place. Lots of kid-friendly things to do and get involved in.

Maybe you inbred, backward thinking, toothless, racist, hateful, suspicion filled, coward bastards should have won the war then. Fact is you lost the war, on your own turf, because you are too stupid. Yankee boys marched on foot for hundreds of miles and came down here and whooped your asses like you were scared chickens. And nothing has changed since. Up in NY I walk the city streets without guns and never felt afraid. I defend myself with my street smarts and my fists. Down here everyone is armed to the teeth. Its because the are cowards just like their great grand daddies who couldn't win a war they started on their own turf. That is very lame.
The truth is these hillbillies think its honorable to be stupid. It boggles my mind. The whole culture is based on doing things "good enough" not the right way. Look around down here you cant miss the incompetence, and its acceptance. A barn collapses and they build another one next to it. Never a thought of clearing out the debris of the fallen one, good enough.
Really its sad how dumb these morons are cause a lot of them are poor as shit with no pensions or plans for their future. And they are so hate filled and poor it makes them ripe picking for the type of leadership that will feed on their hatred.
I could go on and on but I'll stop. Its really pretty nice down here and as a Yankee you will feel like a rhodes scholar. Ive been renting near Clayton but will check out Cary and most likely settle there. Living around red necks grows old quick and I can honestly say I feel a little stupider every day out here in the sticks. Good luck and count your change.

I don't think it's intolerant to Say that there is an overwhelming Mexican presence in the area. I myself don't have any issues with them (they're my neighbors) but in the 7 years i've lived and studied here I definitely noticed growth population-wise. Even in Cary, they have their own 'section' near the DMV. I'm not entirely sure if they're responsible for the majority of crimes in the area,,, So I can see why the 'native' populace comes to despise them to certain degrees.

They are everywhere... North south east and west.. I agree Yankees always go some place else and talk about where they came from... Southerners want it left alone... West Coasters just want to love each other and live with no rules.. But the world is gettin smaller... And money is turning ranches into subdivisions everyday.. Me I try to stay Agile.. I love to fish, hunt, and carry a gun but understand that money & power drives most! Its unfortunate but it is what it is.. I am young and black..Lived all over and have just come to realize that most just don't know and some don't want too but given a chance you may just find a friend from anywhere...
