It's what happens when you have a small Southern coastal community that receives way way way more people from elsewhere. In that sense, it's comparable to DC/Maryland and not Atlanta or Charlotte.
Miami doesn't feel Southern in the same way the city of Detroit doesn't not feel Northern. Different cultural groups predominate in both cities than they did 50 years ago.

The debate as to whether this state is more or less Southern than than state will always go notional nowhere without discussing which state's people and culture fall closer in line with the people and culture of the South as a whole based on actual traits in comparison.

If Detroit doesn't feel Northern, then what does it feel like? Nobody in their right mind would mistake Detroit for a Southern city just because it is majority Black which is what you appear to be implying. Same goes for other majority/near majority Black Northern cities like St. Louis, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Newark, etc.

Gotta let some people wallow in their ignorance...

I wouldn't say that. There is a strong transition the further north in WV you go. People often want to confuse rural culture with southern culture. Northern WV has ore in common with Ohio and PA, then it does with VA or KY.

Okay? West Virginia is still a southern state and I think, unquestionably so...

The upper quarter or so of the state has a more blended-to-Northern characteristic. The rest of the state is definitely southern....I am not saying the rest of WV is amongst the most southern of southern states, but it's like people "forget" that there are variations within the South and southern culture. The predominate culture of WV, and especially the predominate culture of the lower ~three-quarters or so, damn sure isnt a "northern" culture...

Yep. I posted this:

Hey guys, gonna stop by Denver again, with a couple of friends in Texas. Really want them to experience the outdoors. I've been to Red Rocks, Roxborough and Garden of the Gods. We want to take them to RR and GotG for sure. thoughts on Estes Park or Glenwood Springs? We just want to kill a couple of days.

Would agree. Southern Indiana, Illinois and Ohio are probably more southern than they are midwestern as well
