Yeah, there are some dumb ass hillbilly's in the south, but not as many as people think! I can't stand how southerners are labeled as dumb or uneducated, by the rest of the country. I just saw a guy with a Ohio license plate driving on the wrong side of the highway with his flashers on, like that made it ok! I work with a guy from Indiana that get's lost every time he leaves the office and he's lived here for 15 years. So why does the south get a bad rap? Seriously? We are polite and use manners. I might have a little southern draaaaaaw in my accent, but I'm far from stupid!
Why do people think that Southern people are stupid?

It's the accent (I don't understand why, it's clearly nothing to do with IQ and actually how the words don't want to leave their mouths) and all of the testosterone thing, where people think that "Hey, they're into sports, they must be REALLY thick." This concept that Texans are thick is clearly a load of rubbish.0
im a Georgia peach and every time I have a "non southerner" come to visit.. they always say how well mannered, polite, and courteous we are. I have fam in NY and they say we're like super nice compared to any other girls up north.. etc.. so I don't know why peeps would hate on us just because we might have a slight accent.. but doesn't everyone in their own way? anyways ya..0
To be honest when I think about southern people I think of people of being kind of closed off from the rest of the world.0

Im from NY and I don't think they are stupid. I think they are really nice too, and you actually drive a lot safer. But when I go down south I notice a huge difference in how fast they move. I went to Mcdonalds and it took a noticeably longer time for me to get my food, but I will say it was way better! :) This is from my experience of driving to FL every year since I was a kid. Also visiting Virginia, and North and South Carolina.0
i THINK that judging anyone by where they come from is stupid0
