my mom makes all types of caribbean food. empanadas? yup.

southerners are not making the type of food we're talking about.

a lot of them haven't even heard of it. i remember the first time my gf (from the south) had a beef pattie. she was scared to eat it.
*edit*
and she can cook her butt off. never had a female in my life cooking for me the way she does. she can do the seafood stuff but international stuff like what we're talking about? na.

show me.

see, this is what was in your head so this is what YOU posted.

YOU are not ME. just because YOU were thinking of that stereotype of southerners only cooking chitlins, collard greens, etc. doesn't mean that that's what i said or thought.

i said nothing like that and you got something completely different out of what i said.

that says a lot about you and what you think of the south.
You implied that southerners did not cook a diverse offering of food, that we had not even heard of those foods you mentioned. Your statement was "southerners are not making the type of food we're talking about."

You knew exactly what I was referring to but choose to key on my use chitlins and collards greens which I used to point out the absurdity of your post not as a direct quote of yours.

Keep back pedaling though.

reading comprehension. google it, mike/jluke.
No, you rattled off plantains, tacos, italian dishes, beef patties, knishes and then said "southerners are not making the type of food we're talking about. a lot of them haven't even heard of it." A ridiculous statement which you are backtracking on now.

the south is full of strip malls, walmarts, cracker barrels, mcdonalds, kfc, burger king, church's, bojangles, popeyes, abc stores, gas stations, dollar general's, etc.

there are A LOT of fast food and "sit down" restaurants in the south all over the interstate, main streets, etc.

you do not have the amount of foreign restaurants here. period. you do not have the type of population that we have here and in these other north eastern cities, period. they do not have a stronghold in your communities like they have here. the culture isn't the same at all.

no, i am not saying that southern females are making hamhocks w/cabbage and strang beans with chitlins and sweet tea for breakfast everyday.

no i am not implying that southern females are making deep fried turkey's with a plate of pig feet and fat back with a side of grits and cornbread and a glass of red koolaid.

what i am saying is that a lot of ppl in the south eat a lot of fried foods, eat a lot of everything, do not do as much walking as we do here in the north and are not making the same types of food that we do here.

i know about miami's caribbean population. i am aware that atl has a few of this and a few of that and that houston has a lot of _______. but this is by far not the norm at all period. i've seen it with my own eyes. i have been to florida, i have been to georgia and i have been to texas.
you can agree to disagree and thats fine but it is what it is.

back track that.

instead of beautiful women and cooking we need to be talking about american males and public school education in the south because obviously there is a baffling display of the lack of reading comprehension skills from southern posters on city data.

that is odd considering that this is a message board.

Definitely not Minneapolis.

For some reasons girls think it's attractive to dress like slobs and be fat and not good looking. I have never seen such fatties as I have in MPLS. Sorry to be blunt, but it's true~

Well if you stand behind your statement that southerners are not making italian food, tacos, empanadas, etc and that a lot haven't heard of these foods then I will just let your statement stand on it's own absurdity.

Please don't question others intelligence when you are making such statements.

Right, because people in NJ wear confederate flags...

BTW - Snookie is not from NJ.

This topic really isn't suited for a gay guy - you can't really speak on what a "beautiful woman" is. Gay guys think that the girls from Sex and the City are "beautiful women", but they aren't; they're butt ugly women.
