Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia are all horrible.

    Those places are like any other, in that if you have money the living is fine but if you don't you suffer.

    Texas is not a horrible place to live. A lot of people are moving here from other states. There are parts of big cities I would stay away from.

    First off, all of the original 13 states at some point allowed slavery.

    Second, they can't be that bad if people from the northeast keep flocking to them because they can't afford to live up north on their retirements.

    But yes, they all have some crappy parts, just like every state.

    Because there is a larger percentage of under educated people that are also racist. Obviously not all of the people, but it tends to be a larger percent then other places. So this is what people experience when they go there and often makes it a horrible place for people that are educated. Of course many people that live there don't know any better because they've never lived anywhere else, so they think it is a wonderful place.

      And the "billions of people who agree" actually know better because why exactly?  You told them?  And it's the residents of those states who don't know any better?

    I wonder if you have visited any of those states. Nothing wrong with any of them. Florida is easily the best. Northerners are still moving to Florida.

      There are 2 parts to Florida. Things within 30 minutes of the coast and everything else inland which is a lot like Mississippi

    Portland, Oregon is the homeless capital of the world! What's so great about THAT place??? Sri Lanka has some of the poorest people on earth! What's so great about THAT place? Yet you think the worst places in the world to live are American Southern states? Sorry to disappoint you, loser, but us Southerners don't give a damn what you think of us!

      It is the homeless capital because people want to live there even if they can't buy a home, that's how nice it is

      Really? Learn a little history. You do realize that 1/3 of the states didn't even exist by the time of the emancipation
