And now that the great migration is reversing blacks are moving to different states from where are ancestors were."

So I guess millions of black Africans from different tribes is homogeneous, I guess the various different colonial influence is homogeneous.

And you miss what I was saying the history of Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas, West Virginia and etc are so not the same thing. Southern culture is really a group of cultures. The south despite the diversity started to identify as a regions with things later on like the Civil war and etc. The North never caught up a bond and pride in being northerners

Right on.

Six Flags isn't called that just to be cute.

Does the Pacific Northwest count as northern or are Westerners yet another breed?

Another breed. I don't think of Pacific Northwesterns as Northerners at all. Distinct like Southwesterners from Southern folks.

In the North, the further West you go, the more laid back they get.

What does it mean to be a northerner?

Most folks from the north live in urban areas and shovel their sidewalks when they have 2 or 3 feet of snow on the ground. They like the fast pace lifestyle plus they talk proper like they pronounce all of the words the closest to how they should actually be pronounced.

It seems like every heavily liberal state in the United States has at least one adjacent state that's relatively conservative. Think of California vs. Arizona, Illinois vs. Indiana, and Massachusetts vs. New Hampshire. Pennsylvania seems to be emerging as the "conservative" counterpart to New York, New Jersey and Maryland, even though it's pretty moderate overall. But then that makes the state pretty maligned. It's still considered "too liberal" by many Southerners, but then people in other Northern states say it's "backwards" because it's not in lock step with liberal dogma. For example, it's the only state in the Northeast never to participate in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which was a "cap and trade" agreement. It's also taken a more pro-natural gas stance than New York has, even though both states are on top of the Marcellus Shale.

Default Northeast

I've lived in Mass my whole life and I can honestly say if your nice here you will get taken advantage of. People are always in a hurry, everyone has road rage, if soccer moms carried guns we would all be dead. The yuppies think they own planet earth and deserve everything. The liberals want a law made against everything that bothers them... the latest leaf blowers. I don't even want to begin to comment about the 2 lower New England states... all I will say about them is... they should go back to horse and buggy... just as bad as NJ drivers. I guess if your a jerk you won't mind it though... that's probably why I am still here
