White rural southerners won't turn their nose up towards white Europeans. It's non-white immigrants that they'll have problems with.

This thread is very thinly disguised racism.

I think as long as they’re white most midwesterners and southerners are fine with it. Love the accents

A sizable share of older Americans in the rural Midwest and rural Northeast had parents or grandparents that originated in Europe, primarily Germany, Italy, Poland and Scandinavia. Therefore, there are many older people living in those regions of America who had close relatives that were immigrants and likely spoke English with foreign accents, although most of those ancestors have been deceased for many years. In conclusion, I highly doubt people in the rural Midwest would harbor any animosity towards European immigrants, given the ethnic composition of the geographic region. And depending upon where a European immigrant originates, that immigrant's foreign accent and customs may be nostalgic for older Americans, reminding them of their late parents or grandparents. For example, my mother is often nostalgic for her late paternal grandparents, who were Italian immigrants, when she meets someone who is from Italy and will always exclaim, "Whoosy reminds me so much of my grandfather/grandmother!"

English language. is a global language with many accents. E.g accents: New York, Boston, Southern US, Texas, California, British, Scottish, Wales, Australian, New Zealand, continental Europe, from India, from Asia etc. Racism .... because of the accent? Another reason to hate? C`mon.

Northern Europeans are white + from prosperous countries, I doubt you'd face any discrimination whatsoever.

I mentioned racism earlier...this thread is fraught with it. Not only that, but in addition to that, some are trying to make the south and the Midwest sound like they're ignorant and non-accepting. All these people are doing, is showing their ignorance, by stereotyping. It's maddening, but amusing, in that they're doing exactly what they're accusing others of doing.
