Seriously, I love the southerners, it really is a whole experience unto itself, one of my dearest friends here has introduced to to some serious southern culture, you aint seen nothing till you experienced a day in the Church (her son's christening) where the organ player had a heart attack and the entire congregation chased the "Devil" out thru the church doors!
It was bloody brilliant, priceless experience, you have to admire the depths of how true and sincere the southern mentality can go

the funny thing was after the medics left, the ceremony went on just as if nothing had happened, no gossiping after or questioning what had just happened like it was just an everyday occurrence to chase evil from a building!

You're wasting your time if you can't read my location.... but still.

For the record I never said anything about "southerners"; I said I met too many "rednecks" in Atlanta; I've lived in NYC, Chicago and now Miami and never have I met so many ignorant people in one place.

On Mothers Day, My wife , myself and her parents went to her granparents in the country. My in laws were sharing their house with their other daughter and her family. We got a phone call at 4pm saying there had been a housefire and we had to get back to Memphis very quickly. My sister in law and her two kids had been in the house and she had to bust the window and throw the children out. She was a large lady and so couldn't get out and was overcome with smoke. She was in a coma for 3 days until she was declared brain dead and the life support was withdrawn.

We burried her out in the country where my wifes family is from, a town which you could call "typically redneck". After the service, on the drive to the cemetary, not only did people pull over to the side as a sign of respect, a lot of them also got out of their cars and removed their hats to show respect, even those who were in the oversized pick up trucks.

My Father in law and mother in law lost most of their belongings in the fire. They are insured so they are not hurting financially. Even so, the local community and my mother in laws work have given them almost $4000 out of their own pockets. A lot of these people are on minimum wage too. They have also had neighbours help out and do stuff. One little old white haired lady insisted that she would help us move some of the stuff we did salvage and would not take no for an answer.


Southerners may be called "simple" but they have some of the biggest hearts I have seen and will take care of those who are in need.

When you use the term redneck we all know you are referring to southerners
nobody refers to people from the northeast or the west coast or the Midwest as "rednecks"
I'm not looking for a fisty cuff 4 page bitch fest thread, I'm saying don't judge a place by one visit or by the people you happened to interact with during your experience, what do you think when people sometimes judge you as a Brit that sits around drinking tea all day, are in love with the royals, wear bowler hats, carry umbrellas and talk about the weather all day, not to mention we all have bad teeth? i am not a fan of generalising which is how you came across

In that case you are assuming too much; I never call a southerner a redneck just because they are from the south, I'd call them it for being ignorant/stupid/inbred/etc...

Wow... as I gain composure, so sorry for your loss. THAT is the true south, I have seen the same thing here, hearts as big as mountains true, genuine, compassionate.
They really would give you the shirt off your back, the small towns especially, in one of which I now live. I was on my way to a meeting in downtown and made a few wrong turns.The local sheriff saw me driving in circles and pulled me over. He asked me if i was lost, which of course I was and proceeded to give me a police escort to the business I was trying to find!
I got out the car to thank him as we pulled up and he gave me a hug and said "my pleasure ma'am"
In regards to funerals it is the same here too, total respect.
