Default Redneck Racist?

Just wondering....I'm from Alabama and I have been on several different trips this summer and met many people from all over, but it seems to me that when they find out where I'm from, they immediately assume that I am a redneck and a racist. Does everyone else have that opinion of Alabamians?

*by the way, I know this has nothing to do with cruises, but it's a place where I can get several opinions from a variety of people. Thanks for any input!

I feel u since I am African American I was concerned with racists on cruises becuz i just wanted to relax and not kick anybodys a**, to me i dont portray anybody becuz theyre from a ceartin place or becuz theyre a ceartin color, i like people for who they are, if youre nice to me i am nice to you, and i have met plenty of friends from so called racist states. Just dont worry ,you know what you are and what you arent, just let them know.

I'm from Columbus, Georgia, right on the border of Alabama, so a bunch of kids at my school live in Alabama. The bad thing is...the Georgians like to make Alabama redneck jokes, and as we are the state that I think as the largest KKK group, we are not to be talking. I hear you though. A lot of people think that all Georgians are racist, but we're not. Just my 2 cents.

I don't judge people by where they are from, and i hate people that do. I'm from New York, Upstate, and i always have to say upstate cuz everyone assumes that im from the city. I pitty people who sterotype others and don't judge them by their true person because they can't see how great that person is for being themselves... plus if you automatically judge someone by their skin color or where they're from you have a possability of missing out on a great thing!! Oh yeah BTW im white if that matters at all lol

Many people stereotype all the time. I think its because they are afraid to accept those who are different. God created every individual to be unique. The world, especially America, is a very diverse place and it would be boring if everyone was the same. Instead of criticizing people because of their race or where they come from, you should take the opportunity to learn about their background. Everybody does not look the same, talk, act, or dress the same either. I remember when I went on a cruise two years ago out of California, most of the people on board were from the western side of the country. I'm from New York and everybody said I "talked weird" and had an accent, but they were still willing to. And Ty, I agree with you. Many people assume I also have a bad mentality just because I'm from New York.

Yeah, I agree with all of ya'll, but honestly, do ya'll think of Alabamians that way? Or have I just ran into the wrong people? I mean, I won't be offended or anything because that's all you've ever known I guess. See, Ty, I agree that I think of people from Brooklyn to have that bad boy attitude, and you may not, but that's all I've known and all I've seen on TV, so ya'll just come across that way. I guess I shouldn't stereotype either. That's probably one of my biggest flaws, but hey, you know what they say....the first step to solving a prob is admitting you have it! :-)

Cruisechic2005, I agree with you completely. I'm from Buffalo, NY and all people think of when they think Buffalo is chicken wings, snow and Niagara Falls. They think we're right by the city and it does get annoying. Our side of the state is usually completely ignored when it come to funding for things. Now that I'm done ranting, you really shouldn't judge someone by where they come from. You can miss out on some great people.

For all the people who live in upstate NY, i live on long island, and i think we are even more stereotyped then you are. People should just learn to accept people for who they are rather then judge them on where there from or the color of their skin.

I don't think of Alabamians as racists or rednecks, and actually I have never met anybody from Alabama. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Alabama is farms and the people having accents, although I have never been there to know if thats true.

Well, I do have to admit that I definately have "uh reeeel kuntreee aksint!" :-) But that's ok. ! It's so funny though because when I talk to people from other places they are always like, "OMG! I love to hear you talk!" But I on the other hand love British accents. :-)

*and there is this lady who leaves in the same town as me who was born in England and lived there for like the first ten years of her life, but then she moved down here. She is like 65 now so she still has her original British accent with a little southern country twang added in. ! It's funny to hear her talk

Being from Orange County, California, I get a lot of stereotypes whenever I meet someone. Let me tell you, it is nothing like "The O.C." or the movie "Orange County." If you meet someone from where I live, please don't bring those topics up. I could rant for a long time about the reasons and differences but I don't feel like it.
