Why are most Yankees arrogant and treat us southerners as rednecks?
I was born in a hicktown near Danville, Virginia. I went to UVA through a scholarship and moved to Northern Virginia (the place where only 0.5 % of the population are native Virginians). The second that I try to converse with people there, they treat me as if I am some kind of ignorant fool. They here my accent and automatically decide that I am beneath them. The thing I hate the most is when they say “you don’t like sound like any Virginian that ive ever heard. Duhh! Thats because the only Virginians they know are transplants from Jersey or New York. When they call me Tex I just want to knock their blocks off! To be educated liberal northerners they’re as ignorant as I used to be years ago. Why are they so arrogant but yet so ignorant?
