I believe that I know more than you can possibly dream of dude. First of all I'm not 50 but I'm in my twenties to be exact. Second, the middle east term is not an factual term it used by the urban community from Maryland to North Carolina to distinguish themselves from the deep south and the north. Third, I do not live in the year 1826 I'm living in 2011 and based my experiences off having been to alot places and having family in the south(Maryland included) and facts not from some guy like you who watches episodes of the Wire and the Corner and thinks he knows it all. Fourth, Richmond, VA is extremely southern. Being the capital of the confederacy, the way of life, pace, lifestyle is nothing but southern. Fifth, if don't you think that Maryland is in the south ask the Government what they think it is.

yea nice try with the bull but even Wikipedia(not a great souce) even puts Maryland as the mid-Atlantic region. But according to you its only the urban community

Maryland (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Speakerlink.svg/11px-Speakerlink.svg.png (broken link)i /ˈmɛrələnd/)[6] is a U.S. state located in the Mid Atlantic region, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia to its south and west; Pennsylvania to its north; and Delaware to its east. According to the U.S. Census Bureau

Uh, no, 90% of Delaware is south of the line. I agree, though, that you shouldn't go by the line, though it's pretty close.

Maybe in Maryland, but 90% of blacks in NC are VERY proud to be southern!
Come to NC go in a black barbershop an explain an talk about how they live in the middle east and not the south and you will get a patch in your fade, cut on your ear and a raised rate!
Also, you are living in the past!

Yea just like you have wannabe northerners in Maryland who and want to completely wash away history lol. You have people born and raised in Connecticut who claim that they are New Yorkers and not new englanders but guess what they are. And DC blacks are very southern. Hartford, Boston, Philly, Manhattan, Providence are examples of northern cities, true northern cities. Get over it. Take a history class, crack open a book or something and stop watching too much Wire. Southern culture definitely exists in Maryland. First, the native dialects(like Baltimorese) are partially influenced by Southern speech, and southern accents like the Tidewater one are just as native to Maryland as they are to Virginia. Second, native cuisine like crabs, Smith Island Pound Cake, Maryland Beaten Biscuits, Stuffed Ham and Maryland Fried Chicken, or tobacco, one of the state symbols that has a tremendous legacy in Maryland, all lean more in the Southern direction. Third, there is nothing "Northeastern" about Southern Maryland or the Eastern Shore. There are those who say Baltimore and DC aren't southern cities, yet they have Southern roots/origins, and continue to be influenced by the South in their own intricate way. Just because they've changed a lot from what they originally were, have gotten bigger, become more diverse, as many places have, doesn't mean they no longer fit into the region. But to see that requires letting go of cliched and oversimplified stereotypes of what the South is. All of the south has changed.

The tensions between African Americans and Latinos have been pretty thick. I read that the reasons for the tensions are the scare supply of low-end jobs, school and health services, gang turf, illegal immigration, cultural differences, and language differences.
