If there's any reason to live in the North and/or the Pacific coast, it's because you can eat well.
Take Washington, DC. Were it not for Asians and Hispanics and a few other ethnic groups, it would be a culinary wasteland. It used to be you had to go north -- Baltimore -- for decent food. Go south -- Richmond -- and everything's fried.
This thread is mind-boggling. There are normal people who like Southern cooking? Who knew?
That is truly remarkable, you managed to stereotype almost half a dozen ethnicities in a single post.
For the record I'm normal and white, but I'm not poor or trash. Southern food is probably my favorite regional cuisine; if not my favorite cuisine overall. There is certainly some awful food that is produced under the label "southern," but there is also some amazing stuff.
