I don't know what the DC area is, as their culture is different from Baltimore area. Plus, I don't live there. I'm talking about the Baltimore area, which is clearly southern, in a clearly southern state. Baltimore's metropolitan area isn't as transient as other southern regions, so logically speaking, Baltimore is very much a southern metropolitan area.

You dont have to go far south from Baltimore before people will start calling you a Yankee. DC is further south geographically than Baltimore so if you think ya city is southern what does that make DC? Okay then and I'm from DC born and raised and I don't consider it a southern city, that's offensive it's mid atlantic, just like Baltimore. I used to live in Baltimore and I never felt like I was in a southern city. You're just trolling at this point. ..

When they filmed The Wire I wonder why they mostly got New York and DC actors to play the role instead of southern actors...?? The truth is Baltimore's black population is a mix from up and down the east coast but Baltimore has always had a northeastern influence to it.

I wonder why they didn't mostly use Baltimore actors since, The wire was filmed in Baltimore and about Baltimore. Also, actors from DC and NYC had the worst renditions of a Baltimore accent I've ever heard. You can tell right away on who was ACTUALLY from Baltimore as who wasn't.

The Baltimore accent is hard to replicate.. And not everyone from Baltimore has the accent.

This is the hottest rapper coming out of Baltimore right now and he did a remix of 6ix9ine's gummo. He doesn't sound southern at all..

I like it. He definitely sounds like Baltimore. He doesn't sound like he's influenced by NYC , though.

This is false, and there have been several threads on here through the years that illustrate comparable parts of Richmond and Baltimore...

Now, Richmond and DC are more comparable and Richmond and Baltimore are mostly dissimilar, but it's just not true that Richmond and Baltimore are "nothing" alike...

So why didn't The Wire use more Baltimoreans as central characters? Obviously everyone from Baltimore doesn't have the Baltimore accent, but would you say the Baltimore accent has no southern influence in it?

The Mid-Atlantic is not independent of the North or South. It is a part of both regions, and at least 90% of the locales within are visibly culturally influenced by both regions...

The actors from NYC werenít trying to sound like BMore folks at all. They actually sound like New Yorkers!

Namond is well known in Brooklyn and my best friend went to school with him and my ex girl knows him. He talks the same way he does on that show in real life!

Baltimore has always been a rowhouse city. People claim that Philly looks like NYC anyway.. Baltimore doesn't make that claim. I know exactly where you're talking about, right by Carver High School. Baltimore has always been a southern city, but people think of southern as a certain way. Baltimore is just another version of southern that defies most people's logic. New Orleans and Atlanta aren't the same, Miami and Atlanta aren't the same. Richmond has rowhouses and is nothing like Miami, but they are all southern.
New Yorkers stop wearing oversized fitteds years ago.

Pelle Pelle jackets are a Bronx and Harlem thing not Bk, Queens or Si.

As far as Miami goes itís diffeent because itís an immigrant city like NYC so they dont have a southern swagger. Many of the African Americans even have Bahamian blood.
