Btw what's so wrong with those churches?
WHERE???? I only recently heard about these gigantic megachurches- 20,000 people per week, stadium setting, valet parking, 1 million dollars worth of video/audio equipment. I cannot even think of a place in NJ that comes close to that.

They are saying that there are rednecks in every state. Not all Southerners are rednecks. I'm a Southerner but I'm not a redneck. Nothing wrong with being one, IMO. I'm just not.

Problem is, while that's part of my mentality, when the rest of the country thinks that then Southerners might try to distance themselves from Southern things that have nothing to do with being some type of inbred/ hillbilly/ racist.
The south didn't have positive stereotypes accept southern hospitality and southern cooking. The south stereotype is known for racism, segregation, and slavery back in the 1800s.
