Question:Have you never seen any othose people on those shows in real life.I mean those TYPES of people?I have.They do exist.Not showing that on T.V. does not mean there are still not people like that out there.

Im not trying to convince anyone about anything that should be obvious to people who have the ability to think for themselves.
About your analogy:I hate chitterlings but if I did I would eat them because I know in moderation its fine to eat.I know they are not good for you but that's my point:An Adult can determine for themselves what they do is right for them.
Again not trying to sugar-coat anything.
You cant stop people from making fools of themselves no matter what color they are.

You make choices to improve your house. Your impact is minimal to the city as well as your sports team.

You got that backwards. YOUR impact to the city is minimal. You can't speak for the rest of us.

No, not really. People think of Savannah and the coast, of the mountains and the farm land, of the hunting preserves, of our military bases and of our ports, and, of course, of Atlanta. But certainly not just of Atlanta. Georgia has way more to offer than just Atlanta.

You're right. No one ever thinks of Georgia as having any hillbillies. It's not like one of our biggest tourist attractions has Confederate leaders on it. It's not like we have a town that had segregated proms up to 2012(national story). Honey Boo Boo gets as much national exposure as all but the most famous Atlantans.

Georgia is stereotyped as being redneck, both by some outside the state and plenty of people from the Atlanta area. I had someone from Chicago say they were surprised we don't have dirt roads everywhere. That's what people in their neighborhood back home thought it would be like.

And don't forget "Sex in the City" like the NYC poster mentioned earlier. Where every day for a young professional is shopping for Dolce Gabanna shoes or much more expensive items, attending A-list hard to get in clubs, eating at 5-star restaraunts, etc. etc. and I think they had one black friend make an appearance on one out of hundreds of episodes.
