There's also sweet tea, tornadoes and, for some reason, hockey.

The tension between rural and urban, past and present looms large in many works about the South, particularly the film "Deliverance," which came out 40 years ago this year....
"There are still a lot of people here locally who have hard feelings about the stereotypes the movie represented," she says.


"My husband, cousin, uncle, brother, daddy, and I saw the film, and we both hated it" she continued.

I just back from a day at The Heritage tournament on Hilton Head. Very few "Bubbas" that I could tell, and not a banjo in sight.

Unfortunately there aren't very many banjos around here, but Bubbas abound.

Bull farking shiat. I moved from Long Island to right outside Charlotte. These rednecks have lived up to every stereotype.

Pickup truck - check

baseball caps on every grown man- check

sleeveless shirt= check

more spaces than teeth -check

5-10 rotting sheds/barns on property -check

In bred features- oh god yes

Only good thing is many from the Northeast are moving down and pushing the hillbillies out to South Carolina or Tennessee/ Kentucky.

Haven't seen a "Southern Belle" yet. And why do you people take your damn dogs into the store? Try a hair brush and some make-up once in a while. And fark some Europeans and thin out that English ugliness. Damn, some of you are butt ugly. And wrinkly, stop smoking and drinking and maybe you won't look like the crypt keeper. An dumb as a box of rocks. I asked for a circular at the courtesy counter, the guy had no idea what I was talking about. Another guy asked if Long Island was really an island.

There's one thing about the South that is consistent across the entire region - a form of know-your-place attitude w/ businesses.

In the North, aside from Indiana, workers are considered equal peers with the people that run businesses. While recent events have tested it, businesses generally treated workers well and saw competition as the way to win over workers - as opposed to litigating and undermining workers.

In the South, workers are treated with the highest contempt, save for slaves & criminals. This has come as a result of businesses tapping into the regional sensitivities to slavery and building a hate towards anything that makes workers equal to businesses, unions or not. This hate stretches deep enough that workers excuse being intimidated - for businesses were first to find that the South knew nothing about businesses or labor unions.

In short, the South really likes to equate workers to slaves by the way the laws are written and how the workers are treated.

If you didnt read my prior post upthread, you would have reached another conclusion.

Why does the South rely on sneaking out companies from places like Ohio, or treating the workers like shiat? The business friendly state of Georgia has sucked in so many businesses, but has a higher unemployment rate to show for it. In addition, businesses in the South seem to think that workers are to be litigated into the poorhouse if they as so much raise a complaint; whereas the Northern business would proactively solve that by raising morale and addressing the complaint.

With all the people moving South, I hope to be alive to see the day when Right to Work is repealed in the Deep South along with all the derpiness against workers.

Look, Southerners are genuinely nice people. It really isn't an act. But, quite a few of them will turn on you in an instant if you reveal that you're not part of their standard Judeo-Christian normality. I look like I fit in here fine, so I never have any problems. Of course, when Southerners turn on you, they don't actively do it if you're white. You will be told things like 'bless your heart' a lot and then invited to church on Sunday and probably Wednesday.

I have yet to see a state or city yet that couldn't fit the southern stereotypes just as easy as Bumfark, GA.

And, seeing how people from the much more civilized north here on Fark feel about the south, I'm fine with where I live.
