The people below the canal in DE should just be considered Delmarvans. Delmarva I would say is neither north nor south, however Wilmington and its suburbs are northern.
Sheit!!! I don't know any area in the Northeast that looks like Dover, Delaware but there are plenty of cities/towns in Virginia and the Carolina's that looks like Dover, Delaware....

If you answered with anything other than pork you aren't a Southerner.
There are SEVERAL Pork BBQ joints in Maryland and I am sure there are some in Delaware too.......

I lived with a guy who was born and raised in southern Virginia on the coast (In the city of Chesapeake). He knew the whole Chesapeake bay area very well having spent his whole life there.

Even he said that Maryland was in the north. Hell, he didn't really consider where he grew up to be part of the south despite geography.

His mother was from North Carolina. She was very very southern. They'd go to visit her folks and he always felt alien. Neither he or his father (Both southern Virginians) had accents or even acted southern. They were fast talkers and get it done yesterday types (typically a northern trait).

His father stuck by Virginia as a southern state (which I agree with), but he even said Maryland and Delaware were in the north.

So there are two more opinions to throw in. Both from urban Virginians.

That's pretty accurate. I'm a Virginian and that's pretty much how I have always felt.

Thank you my brother! Finally a real northerner, fellow Connecticut brother that agrees with me!

You've been speaking to real northerners all along.

You never did answer for your statement.

Are you implying that I am not from the north? Are you saying that I made the first eighteen years of my life up?

Yea but VA and NC got those culture influences too!
