    Not sure what you're getting at but are saying as in 'the whole South'? I agree. As far as Texas having a little of everything the South it is true. Apparently moreso then any other state.

    Southern United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    Modern definition The states in dark red are almost always included in modern day definitions of the South, while those in medium red are usually included. Maryland and Missouri are occasionally considered Southern, while Delaware is only rarely considered part of the South. Oklahoma is sometimes considered Southern because the area of Oklahoma, then known as Indian Territory, was allied with the Confederacy. West Virginia is often considered Southern, because it was once part of Virginia.


    Historic Southern United States. The states in red were in the Confederacy and have historically been regarded as forming "the South." Those in stripes were considered "Border" states, and gave varying degrees of support to the Southern cause although they remained in the Union. (This image depicts the original, trans-Allegheny borders of Virginia, and so does not show West Virginia separately. See image below for post-1863 Virginia and West Virginia borders.)


    The South is one of four Census Bureau Regions.
    (See Cultural Variations for more about the complexity of southern states).

    As defined by the United States Census Bureau,[4] the Southern region of the United States includes sixteen states and the District of Columbia (with a total 2006 estimated population of 109,083,752.) Thirty-six percent of all U.S. residents lived in the South, the nation's most populous region. The Census Bureau defined three smaller units, or divisions:

    * The South Atlantic States: Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Delaware
    * The East South Central States: Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee
    * The West South Central States: Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas
    * The Old South: usually the original Southern colonies: Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.[5]
    * The New South: usually including the South Atlantic States.
    * The Solid South: region controlled by the U.S. Democratic Party from 1877 to 1964. Includes at least all the 11 former Confederate States.
    * Southern Appalachia: Cumberland Plateau of Kentucky and Tennessee, Western North Carolina, Western Maryland, West Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and northeast Georgia.
    * Southeastern United States: usually including the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida
    * The Deep South: various definitions, usually including Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina. Occasionally, parts of adjoining states are included (sections of East Texas, delta areas of Arkansas and Tennessee, and the Florida panhandle).
    * The Gulf South: various definitions, usually including Gulf coasts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama.
    * The Upper South: Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina.[6]
    * Dixie: various definitions, but most commonly associated with the 11 states of the Old Confederacy.
    * The Mid-South: also known as the South Central United States.
    * Border South: Missouri, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware were the states that did not secede from the United States to join the Confederacy.
    The size and cultural distinctiveness of Texas prohibit easy categorization of the entire state in any recognized region. Geographic, economic, and cultural diversity among regions of the state preclude treating Texas as a region in its own right. The larger cities of Texas with their burgeoning knowledge economies have attracted migrants from other regions of the United States and immigrants from Latin America and Asia. However, partly due to its membership in the Confederacy, it is usually considered a Southern state rather than a Western one. Also, linguistic maps of Texas place most of the state within the spheres of upper, mid and gulf Southern dialects, helping to further identify the state as being Southern (use of Southern colloquialisms such as y'all is still very much widespread in Texas). Further, it should be noted that more than 86% of Texans identify themselves as living in the South.[46]

    Re: Why calling black people 'niggers' is not racist.

    Ah, yes. Thank you for your efforts, Hatuey.
    But it's not like anyone was listening to his inane prattlings, in any event.
    As far as I know, there's no one on this forum or in the entire world who doesn't think Texas is "the South", by any definition.

    I do think we should get back on topic now, though.

    It's like Californians to some extent. We're hard to pin down cause depending on where your go people can range from rednecks to yuppies to hippies. Socal is nothing like the north in my experience. The further you go up north the more Canadian people seem. It's true.

    Really? You know this how? What are you basing your "opinion" on exactly?

    I live in one of the most diverse cities in America, New York and while it is nowhere near perfect by any measurement I can confidently state that for the most part people of all races, colors and religions habitate together with ease.

    Go on with your bad self.
    You know perfectly well you've never met a black person.
    You're not fooling anyone.

    I live in the North and I've never met a black person.
