Yeah, we sure are one happy united country aren't we.

Now you know why I am always pushing for the breakup of this country. We are a nation of people that despise each other. It is only going to get worse.


Try these two of your fellow Americans from the other thread:

Realize it's laid back here and there's a load of traditions that we follow. If you don't know, just ask. But you will meet a bunch of your kind down here depending where you go. Big cities, along the coast and if you relocate near Disney World. That's where all the Yankees are down here. Start southeast or southwest along the coast and head north on either side. Populated cities are full of y'all, the pockets of small towns still belong to us. Panhandle area remained "old Florida" for the most part, and in the center of the state, away from congestion is still old Florida.

Why does it matter how diverse a city is? and why do people care so much about what race their neighbors are?
thank you!!

Interesting how you try to choose that one post like it represents everyone's attitude in the South.
Separatist are a minority in the south and you also find them in most countries. Canada, United Kingdom, Spain, etc....
Been to the south many time and i know many southerners, none of them have a problem with people from the north.

You seem to be just as obsessed especially starting this thread? Pot meet kettle.

My experience is people want to live with other people of the same income level and they don't care about your color, religion or sexual preference as long as you are in the same income bracket as they are.

People who pat themselves on their back for racial diversity usually, in my opinion, don't tolerate diversity of opinion.
