What are the SIX WORST stereotypes that people have about the southern part of the United States?
That everyone is a NASCAR watchin', Garth Brooks worshippin', tobacco chewin', gun shootin, moonshine drinkin' inbreeder.
...that's six, right?
Good enough, Freddy. You have done well or in New Yorkese, yous have done good (my acerbic humor- I am a New Yorker by the way).
You'se a Noo Yawka? Cool, we're neighbors. I'm from Joisey. How ya doin'?
They're all "rednecks", slow thinkers, never travel far from home, blame everything on the federal government, love guns and football, love a high fat diet anything fried.
Of course all of this is nonsense but people buy into whatever dominates the media. If one watches "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" you can only imagine what stereotypes exists regarding "the angry black woman". LOL!
There are many, but these are the ones that especially perturb me:
1. We are incestuous
2. If we happen to have been born white, we therefore must be racist
3. We all live in trailer parks (with obligatory big-ass satellite dishes in our yards)
4. We're all overweight
5. We have poor dental hygiene
6. We are uneducated (aka "We ain't got no good learn'n")
