The level of intelligence on average here in Alabama is quite low. In my graduating class, we have thirty people, which is big for my school. Many kids in my class only have a 19 or 20 on the ACT. There are a lot of dumb rednecks and a lot of dumb people on welfare who refuse to work, even though there are jobs available and they are able to work. However, I know many people who are "rednecks" but are still quite intelligent. It is just different as a whole here in Alabama.

You don't hear people claim northern pride very often. Southern Pride, however, is pretty common. I think it's a lot to do with (no offense to northerners) the south being very culturally rich. The only other area I can think of like that is New England, which is basically "classic america."

#115-I think Southern Pride has a lot of historical roots. Sherman's March basically obliterated a huge path in the South during the Civil War. Then after the war, during the Reconstruction, the South had to further deal with the North trying to crush their culture and the daily degradations they faced at the hands of the Union soldiers occupying the South and enforcing what amounts to martial law for years on end. Those sorts of hardships tend to make people proud of who they are.

The "culture" that the north was trying to "crush"? oh yeah! racism and slavery. But let's just use the word culture so everybody thinks the south were the oppressed and not the oppressors for hundreds of years.

Actually the war was not about slavery. The south wanted to be free of the north. It didn't become about slavery until president Lincoln freed the slaves in an attempt to weaken the south. It really pisses me off when people say Abe was this big hero for setting the slaves free he owned slaves ffs!

To clarify myself don't demonize the south as all racist stupid hicks. The north was also full of racism for example and feel free to look in a history book when the slaves were freed and some went to the *savior* north were left in the streets to freeze to death
