You don't have to agree with it. Quit the personal attacks. Outside of the Census Bureau, Maryland and Delaware almost universally considered Northeastern. That's not the case with NY and PA being considered the same region as Ohio. They are NEVER considered Midwestern and Ohio is NEVER considered Northeastern.

That's what I mean by there is no gray area with you, everything is either black or white. Many people have already based their comments on this thread based on unofficial regions like; the Rust Belt, Sun Belt, Appalachia, Deep South, Great Lakes Region, Upper Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and the list goes on. So just chill out man and stop disagreeing with every single poster on here.
No I'm not going to agree with unsupported opinions. I've got facts on my side unlike all of you.

New Orleans is an anomaly.

They're also all culturally Southern. Baltimore is culturally and linguistically Northeastern like Philadelphia. I've been there. If you think that's the South you've never been to the South.

Maryland can be considered Southern, thus Baltimore and Philly are valid answers to the OP.

No they aren't. Maryland is NOT the South. The Census Bureau has it wrong. Anyone with an education knows Maryland is not the South. I know you believe it is but something tells me you just take the Mason Dixon as a hard boundary that can't be disputed. The argument for Maryland being Southern from a modern standpoint is very weak. Hence the argument is invalid. You can feel free to disagree but I'm not changing my tune. You in fact are wrong but you'll never admit it. Hence you're a waste of my time and energy.

Certainly not your way. Your way excludes Louisiana from the real South which is the most ridiculous thing I've heard, as well as Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky all of which constitute the real South. Your way is certainly and factually incorrect.

You do realize, none of this is facts, right? You are just repeating what you think and how everyone else should believe the same.
