Nah bruh. The South is heavily slanted towards beer. Sittin on your porch all day drinking 3 six packs of beer and it doesn't have to be a national pouplar beer either. It could be beer you never heard of. In fact, I heard in Northwest Alabama, people get lawn chairs, sit outside of wal-mart, and drink beer all day long lol.

LOL You mean like Lone Star or Dixie, Spade? I don't know about the latter, but even speaking as a native Texan and beer-lover to the nth degree, I wouldn't offer the former to my worst yankee enemy!

Reckon? Lemme ask my husband...lol!

I've begun to wonder if beer consumption might be a condition!

I hate beer...(but I don't mind some whiskey in my coke..shh..don't tell!)

but I've never seen any in my parts "sittin' on the porch drinkin' beer all day"! Have you? I've lived here all my life...sounds like a sterotype to me...What thread is this? I've got too many goin'...at the same time!

Well, the South may like beer, but beer did not originate in the South. Most beer originated in either the Northeast, the Midwest, or somewhere outside the country. Beer is heavily favored everywhere, not just the South.

3. southern cuisine
4. A certain regard for the confederacy and its leaders
5. There might be other stuff I'm not thinking of, but you can fill in the blank.

I've always found certain things about the south interesting. While some (slavery/segregation) thankfully have died out, It still seems like a very unique region. So does anyone think that the south will gradually lose its uniqueness and blend in with the rest of the U.S.? Personally, I hope that the good things about southern culture can be retained. Any answers would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Mackinac

I hope that the South won't change too much. It's great the way it is.
I really hope that Mississippi and Louisiana stay the way they are.

The South is probably never going to change people. The Northeast will never stop being Northeastern, the Midwest will never stop being Midwestern, the Southwest will never stop being Southwestern, so why should we expect the South to stop being Southern? Not like there is anything wrong with being Southern. Not to mention, the South is one of the most booming and powerful economic and financial places in the country right now. So I seriously doubt it will stop being Southern anytime soon.

...and that's why it will change because of migration from other parts of the country.

Hopefully, NEVER! there will always be pockets of the true south. it's just that the size and quantities of those so-called "pockets" are diminishing.
