Kentucky

Why do people think that, just because someone is from Kentucky, that they are bible-banging, rebel flag hanging, black/jew/mexican/asian/muslim haters, and just plain stupid? They also seem to think we're Bourbon-washed horse obsessives(a lot of us are, though). Why? We're no different from any state when it comes to intellectual status. In America, we are all individuals. Our state is not who we are, and most people in a state don't fit its stereotypes.

Why do people think that, just because someone is from California, that they are granola-munching, rainbow flag hanging, birkenstock-wearing, and just plain stupid? They also seem to think we're pot-smoking hippies (a lot of us are, though). Why? We're no different from any state when it comes to intellectual status. In America, we are all individuals. Our state is not who we are, and most people in a state don't fit its stereotypes.

"a lot of us are, though"
Typically when making an argument against something, you don't end by saying that it's probably true.

... Could have to do with the fact that even you point out, yourself that "a lot of us are, though" :lol:. A few bad apples, of course.

I ask myself that all the time considering I am also from Ky.

Here's the thing: Outside of Louisville and Lexington? They're right.

Just something to deal with.

I know how you feel. I'm originally from there and moved to Georgia. Even here they treat me as a redneck and I'm like "This is fucking Georgia! If anything, you're worse! Dukes of Hazard? HONEY BOO BOO CHILD? HELLO?" :lol: They get mad mad at me when I do that.

Wait, I thought the Dukes of Hazard are actually from Kentucky? Or some state that is not Georgia?

:iconforget-the-name:

Nope. They were originally from the fictional county of Hazard, Georgia. However, there is a Hazard, Kentucky which is why a lot of people think that's where was set.
