8. The last couple of days on DU, I'll give it a 10
Edited on Fri Mar-11-05 09:22 PM by BamaGirl
I have experienced the regional hate thing. I grew up in Atlanta and has a teenager in the 80's. There were quite a lot of ppl from other areas of the country moving into the school district. Some of them were extremely unpleasant. I wonder if those ppl still hold the same views of the South?

I moved to Alabama in 93 and lived in NV for a year. The year in NV was pretty awful. The minute you open your mouth the stupid stereotyping starts. Anyway, other than that year I haven't seen this kind of thing in 15 years. It's frustrating that the party that supposedly has the thinkers has so many ppl bound and determined to hang onto the stereotypes.

There have been 3 "bash the South" posts in the last two days. It seems to go in waves around here. I have definitely come to the conclusion though that most ppl don't want to understand what make the South tick. They'd much prefer to stay in their comfy little boxes. It's a shame because that attitude has a lot to do with why the party can't win national elections in the South anymore.
