While Virginia may technically be a Southern State, you just can't count Northern Virginia as Southern. It has not a single aspect similar to other Southern States except its location. It's basically New England in every other regard. Wealthy, educated, liberal, democratic, high quality of living, cultured, healthy, etc.

........and self-righteous, stereotyping (of themselves and others), racially homogeneous, etc. lol. My in-laws live in the Boston/Cape Cod region and we talk about this sort of thing a lot and good naturely kid each other. Yet we know the stereotypes are generally untrue for the most part on both sides. That's why we joke about it. But all of the things you mentioned is an exaggeration of stereotyping of NE and, in the reverse of your comparison, exaggerating stereotypes of the South.

It makes no sense to subdivide states when we're talking about entire states here. Even so, you omitted at least a portion of Texas in your list.

Exactly!!!! Why would I care above Nova, its a small part of virginia and its basically just suburbs of dc. 99% of the state is southern. We're talking about the whole state I dont care about exceptions.

This topic is pointless if Maryland is not included on the list.

just not true that liberals are more educated. most poor people vote for Democrats. Democrats call Republicans the 'party of the rich'.

pretty sure there are tons of people in DC that are not healthy, and there is a ton of poor people in the DC metro. i thinkt he poverty is actually much worse there because of the much higher cost of living compared to other areas in the south.

Y'all can talk about whole states, half states, sub states, whatever y'all need for the thread. Rank and play away.

I am just writing an accurate list.


And--Texas ain't part of The American South. Texas is...Texas.
