I'm not sure why it would be such a passionate argument for someone that has only visited Texas.
Because any human being with even the slightest iota of logic and common sense would know that Texas is obviously not the Deep South. Think!

As you said, the Deep South is more of a cultural region. It includes some states in totality, and some states partially. Texas falls in the latter category, as does NC (eastern NC), FL (north FL), and TN (western TN).

But it's interesting that you seem so passionate about it, not being from Texas or living there.

There are plenty of Texans who feel differently...as a guest expert you should know that as well.

Yeah what's that about? It all seems a little fishy.

If there are any people in your city or state who refer to themselves as "Boyz," then you're from the Deep South. That includes Dem Franchise Boyz, Hot Boyz, Lil' Jon and the East Side Boyz, Geto Boyz, etc. Also, if any of these rappers/labels are from your state, you might live in the Deep/Dirty South

Rich Boy (Alabama)
Plies (Florida)
TRU (New Orleans)
Swishahouse (Texas)
Miracle (Georgia)
Mia X (Louisiana)
Gucci Mane (Alabama)
UGK (Texas)
Project Pat (Tennessee)
Pastor Troy (Georgia)
Silkk Da Shocker (Louisiana)
Eightball & MJG (Tennessee)
Drama (Georgia)
404 Soldierz (Georgia)
Three Six Mafia (Tennessee)
Rasheeda (Georgia)
Jim Crow (Georgia)
Kilo Ali (Georgia)
So So Def Bass All Stars (Georgia)
Huey (Missouri)
Lil' Boosie (Louisiana)
Hurricane Chris (Louisiana)
Master P (Louisiana)
Mystikal (Louisiana)
Lil' Webbie (Louisiana)
David Banner (Mississippi)
Soldja Boy Tell 'Em (Georgia/Mississippi)

That's the core of the Dirty, Dirty imo. It's the states that get me the most shout outs at Dirty South parties.

That's just the hip hop trend of the last decade. I'm from the south and I'm amazed that its gotten this much attention. Years ago when I lived outside the south it wasn't "cool" to be from the south. Especially the deep south. Now it's a trend.

I think you are both rude and wrong. Texas is right next door to Louisiana. In fact, it goes further south. It hugs Mexico, which is the southern border of the US. It was settled by southerners from the deep south. It still holds many cultural ties to it's eastern neighbors. Ergo, Texas is in the deep south.

Just because it has Mexican influence and unique scenery does not make it less southern. I dare you to go out to Texas and call them Yankees. DARE you.

I'm not so sure if any of these places are "less" southern or just "different" southern. I recall reading a quote that went something like "There's the South of Episcopalians, horses and whiskey and the South of fields and mules." Virginia, to me, is very much a southern state, but they've always viewed themselves as the "educated" southerners in the manner of Thomas Jefferson. That's why I suppose they have the "Cavalier" as their mascot as opposed to a "Rebel" or "Bulldog."

Charlottesville, VA and Starkville, MS are both southern. Just two different types of southern.


Charlottesville, VA might as well be Princeton NJ these days... it is anything but southern!
