Perhaps you have difficulty in reading comprehension. Why don't you go back and read the post again, and this time put your thinking cap on and try to understand what I said. If you are unable to do so, I will gladly explain it to you if you ask nicely. Geeeezzz.


Just to give you a slight hint, the bold type was done by me for emphasis. Now maybe you can figure it out. OK, I'll help you, the statement the he was the one with the education and work ethnic was a stupid statement.

Your ignorance is astounding. I would bet that you are a scholar up north. Notice I have the type in bold again above, and this time it is to show the ignorance of your statement.

It is not the South that is rising but Florida and Texas. Florida holds Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami and Texas hold Dallas, Houston, Orlando, San Antonio, Austin and Corpus Christi. There is actually job-creation in Florida and Texas but most of the South is still poor even though there are a few cities like Charlotte, Atlanta, Raleigh, Virginia Beach with growing high-tech industries that see some population and economical growth. Small historical coastal cities like Savannah and Charleston is turning into playground for the upper middle class and the tourist industry.

What we can see is that North Eastern cities like Philadelphia, Washington DC (never mind the unproductive government jobs that drives up GDP), Boston, New York and Baltimore does not see an exponential growth anymore. The Midwest is just a mess with the most important metros, which are Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cleveland, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Columbus, Cincinnati, Milwaukee and Indianapolis. The Midwestern medium sized metros like Omaha, Madison, Des Moines and Wichita is nothing to sing home about. Yes, some of them show economical growth through a rising population but not per-capita growth. The reason why the Midwest is a mess is because the industrial base has moved abroad and US does not manufacture anything anymore. North Eastern United States still runs on the financial service industry, tourism, foreign investments and government jobs. When we look at Upstate New York we noticed that once middle class Albany, Buffalo and Rochester has seen slowing economical increment when they cannot provide technical skills to the Midwestern industrial base.

Northern states is run on debt-driven economies that is heavily built around financial industries and when they died (never mind the bubble-recovery set by the Federal Reserve) in the 2007-crisis those states who actually create real wealth through honest entrepreneurship and not investment banking and gambling have recovered pretty well from the crisis at least when we look at employment numbers. Low unemployment (2-4 percent) is only found in North Dakota, Nebraska, Utah, South Dakota and Vermont. The rest of USA have medium to high unemployment with Arizona, Alabama, Tennessee, District of Columbia, California, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Nevada, Michigan, Georgia and Mississippi being worst of with 7-8 percent unemployment. Five of the worst eleven states are Southern states which gives us an hint that it is not the Southern Economy that is booming but the Texan and Floridian economy and what I know only a few major cities.

Seven southern states (if you count Maryland, which I don't, but apparently plenty of other people do!) have unemployment rates below the national average. Six have unemployment rates above the national average.

If you look at unemployment figures alone, the different regions of the US are all over the place.

I'm guessing the food and culture has a lot to do with it. And the tea. Yeah, the tea.

There is also more of a cultural and political divide than ever before.

My kids and their peers (college bound, college students or graduates who will or are already earning six figures, have zero interest in the suburbs, especially those in the South.
Well then it's a good thing that the south offers more than just the suburbs.

A divide that you are doing your part to help expand even further with your broad stereotypes and short-sighted generalizations. Keep up the good work.

Really? He is doing that? In a post about the South "rising up again"?

What's it going to do when it "rises up"?

Ignoring the cultural divide does not make it go away.

One of my already conservative and ultra religious sisters went to a Christian college in the south. Met a man married and never returned. She has a phony accent and political and social beliefs that frighten me.
She thinks Gays should be executed, for example. She also hates the state that she was born in and calls it a "demonic strong hold".

I can't even have a normal conversation with her or any of their friends.

There is something about that is just different from the rest of the country. I don't think that it's for everyone.

I have also noticed a decline in migration to the South, and many people who have returned, disillusioned

I am secure in my region and home state. I don't need it to "rise up".
