Are You a Yankee or a Southerner?

Let's face it. We live in a racially charged world. Race is important to all of us Americans. We embrace it, love it, hate it, or we deny it.

However; culture is another thing. We all have a basic idea of what ethnic group we belong to, but most of us define our culture as 'American'.

But rarely do we see anyone embracing the fact that they are a Yankee or a Southerner, but believe me there are some who still do. So when I came across this quiz I had to put it up so that everyone can perhaps get an idea of whether they are a Yankee or a Southerner.

Well, are you? Take the quiz to find out! You'll be surprised by the results.

44% Dixie. And yet, with the country in a deep freeze right now, I'm missing the north.

I'm still a Yankee Blue-Blood. :)

Thanks all of you for leaving me some love in the south.

I'm Yankee also. Can't forget my roots now can I?

I love this post, because I was born in St. Louis and spent my later childhood years in Boston. When I went to a state school in North Carolina for college, I was accused on many occasions of being a Yankee (and not in a good way). So, this quiz was interesting & insightful.

My score: 43% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.
