It seems different parts of NC may be different in respect to welcoming outsiders. I grew up in rural NE NC but we did not bash nor feel the need to tell anyone who didnt attend church they were going to hell or anything - and I grew up in a very conservative christian environment. The area is very conservative and a lot of folks do attend church (as did I with my family). Although I didn't grow up with a lot of outsiders I don't think the area was closed off or such to them. The overtly zealous radicalism (as I call I) type of attitude to convert someone is something new to me.

THIS POST IS VERY ON TOPIC. I am trying to help NJRover see the bigger picture about why some people in NC may be less welcoming than he thinks they should be.
Well I just got got back from an airshow down in Annapolis, and saw all the buzz on here. Funny you got a neg rep, I would probably do the same. My BUT statement was I do not want to be called a transplant the rest of my life. so how is that me trying to change NC?

I just got back online, no it wasn't me. You can see that I haven't posted til now. I have been in Annapolis all afternoon, I do have a life other then this forum...LOL. How can people sit here and talk on this forum and be rude and not be a member? I am sort of confused about that? And how can someone give them positive feedback if you yourself can not get the feedback?

I agree with this. I know a lot of Yankees (my best friend is one) and haven't heard them say anything about not feeling welcome. *shrug* I treat everyone equally. If you're nice to me, I'll be your friend. I couldn't care less where you're from or what race you are. As long as you're a decent, kind, respectful human being, that's all that matters to me when it comes to who I'm friends with.
