I do think this video is an embarrassment to Dallas.
But to be fair...take away some of the drawl and that could be The Taste or the bud billiken parade in Chicago...most blacks have southern roots or are southern....

R. Kelly being a perfect example. People from the Midwest can sound southern, but they will quickly deny it.

I was watching obsessed and I was thinking "Why do she sound like a slave?". However, she sounded southern; not country. I believe it's a difference between southern and country. Country is in a way a substitute word for ghetto.
I tend to separate "country" and "ghetto". Someone can be both country and ghetto, while some folks are just country and others are just "hood/ghetto".

Don't think I'm throwing out "country" as an insult, that certainly isn't my intention. I'm just making a mere observation.

The word "country" is usually used in a negative manner, when you call someone "country".

I understand where you getting at.

I know here in Texas we tend to use it for someone that's loud or ghetto. We maybe be a fancy restaurant and someone is being loud. We'll probably be like "dang you country" lol

It all depends on who you say it to. Some will be offended; while others won't.

I mentioned Alexyss Tylor earlier in this thread. She has a STRONG Atlanta accent. I got relatives down there that talk a lot like her.
