I identify as a Southerner and American equally. ALthough especially with all the radical cultural changes on the national level in the past 10 years or so sometimes I wonder if I'm truly a typical American anymore. But here in the South, most people are like me culturally, religiously, and lifestyle wise. I watch the news and feel like the rest of America seems to have gone crazy sometimes but there is still a lot of common sense and good traditional values here in Louisiana (I live in an "exurban" area outside Baton Rouge and was raised in a conservative New Orleans suburb that is worlds apart from the city itself) and I find that very comforting. I do feel that the Deep South is where traditional American values and patriotism is strongest. (many people who hate the Confederate also hate the American flag such as Colin Kaepernick's supporters and the SJW always coming out of the woodwork these days....the people who want statues of Confederate heroes removed are cut from the same cloth as people who say we shouldn't honor George Washington or Christopher Columbus).

I lived 4 truly wonderful years in West Virginia in the southern part of that state and the culture there to me was still Southern with many similarities to Louisiana.

After that I think of myself as a Louisianan and then as an American. I definitely see myself as an American more than I see myself as a "World citizen" and I identify with being Southern, Louisianan, American, and Christian more than I do with my race/ethnicity. I do have equally sized American and Confederate flags hanging in my house.

City. I find the majority of my state and much of the country embarrassing.

I find my city extremely embarrassing and think my state is the worst in the USA. I identify as an individual. My self identity is not based any location.
