Just northern ignorance about the south gives the south its bad rep. It's quite ironic.

American by birth southern by the grace of God.

If the south is so bad, why is it that we never hear of someone retiring and moving to the north. All the yankees wanna move here after they retire.

If the ignorant and uninformed wish to believe in stereotypes--regardless of whether it's about a geographic area, nationality, race or sex, then who am I to deny them that privilege?
it is what it is

A lot of people consider "southern" to be a race. This is largely due to inbreeding though rather than it being an actual race as in genetic code.

You do realize that Indiana is in "the north", don't you? "the south" is slave states at the time of "The War Of Southern Regression" (Civil War) but- BUT- can include non-slave states like Oklahoma that were territories at the time but would have been slave states if they had been in the draft earlier, and have proved suitable racial intolerance since. Kentucky, which served refreshments to both sides during The War Of Southern Regression qualifies as "southern" because no one was paying attention.

Thank you, this is the perfect example of the northern ignorance. Smdh!! Lmmfao

We actual know what the different races are. Lmao and we think being southern is a geographic thing and a blessing for the chosen ones to be born n breed below that Mason Dixon line!!
