Keeping in mind, Yes, America is built on differences & diversity. Racial-ethnic dimensions are part of the American fabric.
Texas. They're too focused on their own culture to care about anything else!

What about Massachusetts? Boston isn't really an American city at all - it's more like Milan or Toulouse or Bristol (UK) and there seems to be an awareness of the rest of the world in Mass, the absence of which awareness Brits such as I have come to regard as quintessentially American.

Oh - and Mass. has universal health care; you get treated for illness even if you're on a low income. How un-American is that!

They are the only state I know of with Parishes instead of counties too!
Alaska doesn't have counties. And North Louisiana is about as American as apple pie.

This thread is getting dangerously close to a full flame war.
Next time anyone tries to start a thread as controversial as this one, please try to elaborate on the criteria you use to pass judgments and make them solid. If you don't, any at least partially controversial thread will roll down into the mud of politics and name calling.
I am closing this one before it gets worse.
