The recent posts about trailer parks reminded me of a map I saw some time ago and I was able to find it again. It is based on the census American Community survey.

I knew it, the South has more low income white people than the North after all.

I've lived in the Jacksonville area and while it has southern culture, I wouldn't say it feels like an extension of Georgia. There is a distinct Florida culture there as well with all the high-end golfing, big beach and water sports scene, key lime, alligator farms - you surely don't find that in Georgia as much.

Jax area is a mix of southern and Florida culture, which makes it a very unique and interesting place.

yep, and fewer benefits and smaller pay raises (if any at all).

Agreed. Compared to the rest of Florida, however, it still identifies strongly with South Georgia, though with a bit of a Florida twist.

I guess people say that because it's not nearly as diverse as its Florida counterparts (mostly Black and White) and is pretty conservative for a sizable city.
