I never said you couldn't find these things in Texas. what i said is that you would have a hard time finding any of these things where I live in Texas. i was trying to kill the stereotype, which i thought was the point of this topic

Maryland steriotypes

Baltimore is A Giant ghetto, except for the harbor
There are many neighborhoods with stately homes far from the harbor, with tree lined streets and a lot of wealth, within the city

Baltimore house on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

We are a giant single suburb of DC
chuckles, tell that to a native

Cumberland, Maryland on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Most of Maryland is a ghetto

Let's get this straight. Let's kill the BAD stereotypes. There's nothing wrong with culture.

Is anyone that insulted if someone assumed they wore a cowboy hat because they were from Texas? Is that really a that bad of a thing to be accused of?

i said it could be a little true.. but people judge it and base a sterotype on the state as a whole.. bad or good.
Maybe the title "killing stereotypes" was off and i should of said "More than the stereotype" or something.
Because NJ is dirty Jersey.. no doubt, it's got one of the most polluted areas, but thats not the whole state.

We all here stereotypes about states. We know a little bit of that steryotype is true but its the furthest description of the state as a whole.

i've heard
-California is full of plastics and dumb blondes.
Sounds right to me. Lived in California for 20 years and couldn't think of it any differently.

I'm saying we should kill things like "all New York City Italian families in Little Italy are in the mob". But there's no reason to kill "New York City Italian families in Little Italy have good cooking". Sure, not all have good cooking, but if they did as a whole who cares? It's culture.

BTW, I have no idea about their cooking I'm just using it as an example.
