Regional Stereotypes

    We all know about different regional stereotypes. I have seen them applied here. So how about it, does where you live match the stereotype?
    Here in San Francisco the typical stereotype is extremely liberal anything goes wealthy white people, at least that is what I seem to hear.
    There are a lot of people like that here but there is also so many other different types of people. We are really a city of many ethnicities, races, cultures and income levels. In most areas white people are a minority and I won't even try to list the different races and/or cultures there are just too many. There are a lot of immigrants living here, everywhere I go I hear various languages spoken. One thing that does unite us here is and easy acceptance differences. A lot of people come here because they didn't quite fit in anywhere else, myself included. A lot of people would be considered odd in other places but fit right in here. That stereotype is true.
    What about where you live?
     
  2. Sounds to me like you just described Boston. :)

    I lived in Boston for about six months. There are a lot of similarities. One difference is the more laid back less intense West Coast attitude.

  8. True dat. It can get pretty intense in Boston, especially when it comes to sports! We've got World Series fever here, and we'll have a winner tomorrow night! :D

    I was there for 2 weeks this summer and it should also be famous for amputated limbs... I saw more in 2 weeks than you could see in a lifetime. Someone will have to explain that to me someday.

    I think the big steryotype about Arizona is that we are all insane because we put up with 120 degree weather... its probably true.

    I spent the weekend playing a gig at a bar that served microbrews, woke up the next morning, walked to the beach to play some volleyball, and spent almost every available moment in flip flops and shorts.
