I wanted to get some opinions from you guys in the US about the whole North/South thing. I am a white guy from a Philadelphia suburb and have lived around here most all my life, with the exception for 7 years down in North Carolina. I just moved back up here last year and am very glad to be back. While down in NC I experienced discrimination like I never knew existed. Some of the people down there looked like they wanted to kill me. I also got kidded around about being a 'Yankee' but didn't pay much heed to it. When I returned last year I looked it up online and it seems they are still pissed off about losing the Civil War and here I was telling them how I was from Washington's Crossing and Valley Forge areas - lol! Anyhow there are some big differences between the north and south, such as they are more religious (the bible belt) and things seems to go at a faster rate up here. People up here tend to have more teeth too. ;-) When I see someone from the south up here I don't feel any kind of hate towards them at all and neither does anyone I know - but down there it's a different story.
