Killer donut. My rant is how you are viewed by the rest of the nation, through media, movies and t.v. reality shows that glimpse at your society. All we see of your society in the media is buffoonery.You never bitch about bad portrayals of your lives, we only hear from your village idiots about gays and unions being evil My rant was satirical, but here is a dissertation that was written by a doctor of social media at the University of Georgia. It's called "Y`all think we`re stupid" google it or find it at www.georgiasouthern.edu

@5Cats "I as a northerner would never hire someone from the south due to the widely held view that southern males are lazy, shiftless, violent and have a lower intelligence." ...sounds like he's agreeing with it to me, but I`ve been wrong once or twice. I`m not trying to start a flame war or anything, but frankly, I`ve never encountered any "Southern Prejudice" before from people anywhere else in the US. Uneducated, lazy rednecks are certainly not only located in the rural South, you can find uneducated trash in any part of the country in both urban and rural settings, so to make a blanket statement like that about the south is pretty ignorant. In actuality a lot of rural "country folk," especially farmers, are extremely well educated. That`s one reason why we have agricultural colleges like Clemson and Texas A&M.
