No, that definitely is not true. Black people from Philly don't say "Murrland" like they do down south in Baltimore. Which makes sense because Philadelphia is in the Northeast. Don't speak about something you know nothing about. Black people from Philadelphia speak very differently compared to the southern sounding black people in Baltimore, DC and Maryland.

Go back to school. Virginia is no way, shape, or form a Northeastern state. The ignorance on this thread is astounding. I mean, damn, I can hardly believe what I read sometime here. Education is a good thing.

If your state or city does not come close to touching at least the 40 north latitude mark at one point, then your area is not northern geographically imo.

Halfway from Florida to Maine
And since there no land due east of Virginia, it is the eastern-most state geographically. Cut VA in half, the northern half is the southern most half of the northeastern half of the east coast.

My brother, who's black says "murland" and he's from Philly, so you've been proven wrong.

Maryland is located in the geographic northeast of the US. It isn't really a matter of opinion, it is just a fact. One could do the mathematics to prove it if necessary. Much more coastline lies south of Maryland down to Key West, than does going north to Maine.

My driving time to New York City is 3 hours and 22 minutes.

To Philadelphia 1 hour and 30 minutes.

My driving time to the Charlotte, North Carolina is 7 hours.

My drive time to Machias, Maine, at the northernmost tip of the East coast is 10 hours.

My driving time to Key West, or even Miami, the southernmost places on the east Coast is nearly 20 hours, double the time to get to the northern Maine coast.

Seriously?

Yes, they all say" Murlin" and "Marelin"...Never heard anyone in PA say anything different.

Maine is the Easternmost state in the contiguous US, and Virginia is not a Northeastern state.

Ok. I give you facts, and it doesn't coincide with what you believe, so it is out of my hands.

I'm a born and raised black Philadelphian and I still live in Philly. My word carries a lot more weight than your's because you are a outsider. I know exactly how black Philadelphians talk and the overwhelming majority of the black Philadelphians that I ever heard say the word "Maryland" pronounce it as "Maralind" or "Mawalind" (non rhetoric) or the proper way. That is nothing like the Baltimore, MD and DC southern like pronunciation of "Murland". You guys down south in Baltimore try so hard to align yourself with a northeastern city like Philly. Its flattering but the two cities have many differences which has been discussed many times in countless threads.
