25. Some of the stereotypes suck,
but some of them can be dead on. The South isn't the only place that is stereotyped. But when it shows people sweating while sitting inside (we do have air conditioner; it is a necessity), only gravel roads, a bunch of racist pigs, stupid people with teeth missing then it bothers me.
