You're really not inspiring much confidence in Baltimore public schools right now.

Saying that fried chicken is "black" is about as ignorant as saying that "y'all" or cornbread or barbecue is "Black." Those things are southern and southern culture transcends ethnic lines. Anyone who has ever been to an S&S Cafeteria or a Picadilly's knows this.

I don't know. I am not from Tennessee. But I noticed a trend by looking at the states. So you gave me the idea of listing all of the Northeast and Southeast states as regards to public land ownership by states.

www.nrcm.org/documents/publiclandownership.pdf

State public land ownership percentage by state - 21 Northeast & Southeast States compared
(Northeast state blue) (Southeast state red)

1. New York --- 36.71%
2. New Jersey - 15.58%
3. Florida ------ 13.71%
4. Pennsylvania 12.75%
5. Rhode Island 8.90%
6. Tennessee --- 6.53%
7. Connecticut -- 5.58%
8. Maryland ----- 5.51%
9. Delaware ----- 4.87%
10. Maine ------- 4.50%
11. Massachusetts 4.62%
12. West Virginia - 2.91%
13. New Hampshire 2.86%
14. Vermont ------- 1.61%
15. Virginia -------- 1.37%
16. Alabama ------- 1.22%
17. South Carolina - 1.07%
18. Georgia --------- .94%
19. North Carolina -- .44%
20. Kentucky -------- .43%
21. Mississippi ------ .36%

The numbers in most of the states are not hugely different but still there looks like some kind of noticeable difference between North and South. And note Virginia which is below every single Northeastern state, even rural Vermont.

Shouldn't you put Maryland in the southern category since you preach complete fidelity to history?

I merely state facts. I didn't start the stereotype type, I also didn't give any opinions of the matter. I'm black, and I'm giving you facts that blacks have long been associated with fried chicken. I didn't say it was right or wrong, just that stereotypes factually have some truth to them. In regards to crime, well that's another topic for another day.

Don't switch subjects. Do you see the trend I am trying to point out or not?

Seriously BajanYankee, just take the "L" and move on. No use arguing about this subject anymore. I've proven my point multiple times already.
I've never heard of 60% of that stuff (on wiki) and some of the things I did like Sweet Potatoes, Ribs and Poultry hardly count.
All of that stuff is Southern no body up here even knows what grits or blackened peas or collard greens, black or white.

Why can't you answer my question. You didn't even ask me a question in your prior post. LOL. If history is what really matters (demographics and everything else we've mentioned is all irrelevant), then isn't Maryland a southern state? It can't become northern through demographic changes because you've already said that's not possible.

I consider history and geography to be important but I never once said history was the only thing of importance. Nor did I ever say that "everything else mentioned" is not important. Please stop putting words in my mouth. I said demographics was being overrated and overplayed. It was getting nauseating, like people are members of tribal groups instead of individuals.

If we went by demographics then even the North would not be the North anymore because the population has changed greatly over the years.

One last shot. Are you going to be honest and at least admit that there is a difference between North and South in regards to public lands?

I'm sure the local black communities in your area are well aware of those kinds of foods.

Other than that, there are foods from the world over, especially in a place like Montgomery County.
Crab cakes are an excepted stereotype of Maryland. Most of the watermen and oystermen culture came from the shore though. Frank Purdue was king over there.
