I love the south and all my friends and family who have relocated to NYC can't wait to come back after they have their fill.

The one thing that frustrates me is the racist/homophobic stereotype we get from northerners. I think we are generally less of those things and the racism that I see up north is absolutely shocking.

Girls are prettier in the south too.

the north is quite racist and homophobic... it's just the racism and homophobia isn't as institutionalized... which does make a big difference.

That is a good point.

Don't try to blame northerners for the impression that the south is racist and homophobic when a lot of southern states poll that they still want interracial marriage banned. It's not northerners sitting around making this poo up.

A lot?

I bet those same states want any marriage outside of immediate family banned also, but we will never see that poll.

I'm not. I'm saying northerners are just as/if not more of both

the problem is that "the south" is quite compartmentalized and the kind of attitudes and people you run in to in north carolina vs. south carolina vs. georgia vs. louisiana are going to vary.

if you were to wander up to joe random in the wal mart parking lot off 70 in hickory and ask him about gay marriage you're likely to get a different answer than if you were to do that outside of weaver street market in carrboro

Compare gay marriage legalization between the north and south.

    • I have a weird suspicion we're really interested in Ross to many's dismay.  Last year proved in too many wats how much we need a playmaker and in a major way.  Looking just at in-game skills, Ross is the best playmaker in the draft.  I feel better about him than the board did about Brandin Cooks in his draft.  We need to draft someone clearly ahead of Shepard/Johnson and to be our third in volume receiving option behind Olsen and KB.   I can also see that causing a stir here so it'd be an entertaining summer for inline fandom.    
    •   Allen is an intriguing prospect. I just wish I had more faith in his versatility. IMO, we need DE more than another DT. Even if that DT is pretty dang good.   Ross? Really? I love everything about him. Except...those knees, and that shoulder. Small guys with injury problems in college? Not high on my list. But hey, that's just me. We can still get a talented kid who doesn't have injury concerns. Just not at 8.   Now a CB? That tickles my fancy. As much as I would love a Hog Mollie at DE. A top flight CB does not repulse me. But...to me, CB is like WR. We should still be able to get a talented kid, even in the 2nd.   Man. I don't know. Part of me wants that Hog Mollie DE. Part of me wants a kid that can scare a Defense. I just am of the mind that we need Offense more so than Defense. But, Fournette is the only Offensive player worthy of that 8 slot. Wishy washy is my name.   Other than that. Thanks for playing.
