A lot of yankees and a few Southerners say that Arkansas is in the Midwest. This actually really freaks me out because Arkansas's status as a Southern state is kind of why I decided to go to college here.

No, its a southeast state. The midwest stops at the Missouri border.

Yet another thread about this subject? Arkansas is a SOUTHERN state.

Let's be real. How is a thread like this every 3 months that unreasonable?

OP I get that you want an authentic experience and all that but classes started 2 or 3 weeks ago I don't really see how you haven't been able to make up your own mind by now.

I've lived most of my life here and even if it did lose its "southern status" it wouldn't really change anything its just a label. People fighting over who is really southern and who isn't aren't really much different than people arguing over whether they are real punks (rock) or that people aren't real bikers unless they ride Harleys etc.

He started or posted about this a few months ago and then a year or so ago. I don't know why he keeps bringing it up on a different thread.

I have bummed around all over the USofA and several foreign countries and I have found that people here in the US are all about the same except their various accents and phrases. One time while "up north" as a young man I found that the ladies "loved" my "southern accent". After that I exaggerated my drawl until it became a habit and when I visited back home in AR my family could hardly understand me . It got me lots of dates though !
