Putting the rural midwest in the same 'nation' as the Rust Belt is foolish. Hell, there are so many ethnic enclaves in Wisconsin and Minnesota that you could draw pretty much any lines you feel like. There's a reason why there are so many of these maps- they're all arbitrary. Let's just cut to the chase by drawing a map that has a circle around your home town and the rest of the map is labeled "WEIRDOS".

Old news. Used to be the Nine Nations of North America. My region changed is name from Aztlán to El Norte. Big deal. It's still the center of the Universe and should encompas Baja, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Northern Mexico, Texas, and southern Colorado.

Texas is a variant of the Nahuatl based Aztlán. The best tranlation into English is "The Holy Land" which is why so many inhabitants are named Jesus.

insano: costermonger: Apparently Midlands, but I don't quite see the link between this part of Canada and that part of the US.

Yeah the author apparently equates eastern Nebraska, eastern South and North Dakota, the Oklahoma pan-handle, and a large chunk of Iowa with places like Philadelphia, Baltimore, Toronto, St. Louis, Columbus. Seems like a pretty stupid generalization to me.


The unifying theme of the Midlands region seems to be "places where people are pretty religious but aren't huge dicks about it most of the time."

Not sure how parts of Kansas fit in, but oh well.

Lor M. Ipsum: gfid: People say the South is racist, but I never saw racism until I lived in a Northern state and then it was both black on white and white on black racism.

I agree with everything else you say but this.  I saw plenty of racism when I lived in northwest Florida, both white-on-black and black-on-white.  One did not have to look far.

However, I've also lived in rural Michigan and have not seen a lick of racism, but I might attribute that to the lack of racial diversity in those areas.  I would imagine it to be different in the more urban areas.


Anecdotal isn't a good measure. I worked industrial growing up, mostly poor laborers. Nearly all of our African-Americans were northern transplants, and to a wo/man they said racism was far worse in whatever northern area they'd come from than it was here. I live in Nashville; large mix of transplants, so not as much overt racism of any kind. Go 30 miles in any direction and it's vastly different.

My experiences in northern cities have been riddled with extremely nice people - until I mention I'm from the south (I have no accent); then the bigotry is palpable. I'm not saying the south is better; I'm white and I recommend you don't go anywhere in rural Appalachia, no matter your ethnicity. If you aren't local, the best you can hope for is to be treated like crap.

I've lived in the Deep South my entire life.

I'd kind of like to try out Massechussets or Connecticut. But i don't like cold.

I'm tired of crushing poverty, and everybody having to make do as best they can.
