Why do you all think we're illiterate and hicks? It's a stereotype... it's your job to break it. PS, we rarely, if ever, spend our evenings gossiping about Americans up North ... We're all the same, sans a few various accents.

there is not a single redneck on the face of the earth that makes any kind of sense, no matter where they are from.

Not all of us are like that.I live in the South and I know that not all Northern people are like the ones we see on the TV living in New York. It's just stereotyping.Sort of like how we Southern people are "redneck hicks" to most of the country
