"Southern" is a euphemism for conservative, on this website. There isn't a difference b/t people in the north and the south and the south has plenty of liberal Democrats.

Florida, due to all the Midwesterners moving to the Central parts of the state, and Northeasterners, Europeans, Latinos and Caribbean folk moving to the Southern portion.

Well, I'm interested in your definition of "Southern", since you didn't seem to think it applies to Texas.

Florida is mostly old retired yankees and the southern part is basically a Hispanic country.

Virginia the least southern state because it is geographically more to the north. lol

Look up Juneteenth for Texas. If they were in the west they would have been free.

They were in the west; thats why they weren't free. It took a long time for the freedom message to come from Appotamox all the way west to Texas, so in that waiting time, the Texans didn't know the war was over.

On the flip side, unlike the other "Southern States," segregation wasn't a big deal in Texas, and the state desegregated early.

I would say Maryland. Northern FL is VERY southern. And yes, MD is part of the South; the upper South.

You're saying that Teaxs is in the West? It's next to Louisiana. That's not the West.

Yes, its such an interesting juxtaposition, but it still doesn't change the fact that Texas is the West.
