    I'm a native New Yorker who has lived in Texas and Louisiana. If the flag represents Southern Heritage, as the proponents say, what is it.? Other than a real love for high school football, what is that heritage that the flag stands for? I'm not pointing fingers or anything, I'm just curious and am willing to hear it out.

    I think it is being a fan of country music. Shooting guns. And being a "hillbilly." Also enjoying things like driving your truck through mud bogs. Maybe hunting?

    At least that is what i think they are going for. :dontknow:

    You can't starve us out, and you can't make us run.

    Confusing northerners is super easy. Just do something that is frowned upon in Manhattan and their heads melt.

    As a southerner I will say for so long now it's been about hospitality, food, music, great writers, bayou and ocean living, a more relaxed living pace, etc. Obviously you remember your past, but to just cling to that and miss what is great about it now is sad.

    Drive a pick up truck. Hunt. Go to a high school football game instead of the newest gay play. Have a wedding that doesn't cost as much as a house down payment. Don't be impressed with someone just because of their job title. Hold the private things in your life to yourself and not feel a need to wave them around to every person you meet.

    Did you see Baltimore on fire? Didn't look like the Duke boys to me looting and burning. Each out of those assholes was a loser.

    Well there's obvious losers everywhere. I just don't think as a group they feel like losers. The only real answer here is Alison'sba

    I've been all over the South. They as a group don't think about themselves as losers. They are WAY more happy than people in New York or Seattle.
