Don't you guys think the assumption that NC is SO full of transplants is a little exaggerated? After all, I'm positive you'll find just as many transplants in Georgia and Virginia. Even SC is starting to become transplant saturated in some areas! It's true that the Research Triangle and Charlotte have many transplants, but if you believe all the native North Carolinians/southern charm have gradually slipped away from those two metros, you're quite mistaken. Still, there's more to North Carolina than those two regions!

Mid-Atlantic: New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Parts of WV, Parts of TN, Most of Southern PA.

Not only is it not true, it is absolute ignorance to believe IQ's are different over state or regional lines. Of course some idiots will believe anything.

Wrong!!! Take a course in geography. Most of what you listed are not Mid-Atlantic.

It's full of Yankees, now.

Mississippians who move there think the gradeschools are "real hard".

The men (real North Carolinians: not imports) tend to be stocky, blond, hairy, gorgeous, and really "gifted". [I think they're descended from escaped "indentured servants" (who had often been seized and sold into 'servitude'), from a time when the slaves being worked to death on the Virginia and South Carolina plantations were whites from Scotland and Southern England.]

Kinsey discovered several of the most enormous examples of something I can't mention, among "White men." in North Carolina. (this was back before the influx from Yankeeland)

Duke is full of creepy, pushy, evil kids from you-know-what-region. "It's like a Gentile version of Tulane - only worse."

Yankees are inflating prices, ruining the social climate, and spreading the insane form of liberalism (and secret racism) that ruined the New York Megalopolis.

Too close to New York.

Not Southern, anymore.

Agreed! I find it amazing what some people on this board believe. Must be the Gubbermunt schools.

When I think of North Carolina, I think of the mountains in Eastern North Carolina, good bbq, and a state that has alot of state sponsored colleges and universities, which tells me that North Carolinians place a high value on a good education more than most states in the South and Midwest.. Because it has so many state colleges to choose from, North Carolina could be called "the Ohio of the South". Seems like Ohio has quite a few state sponsored universites itself.
