    Southerners have different accents and clothing styles, but the thing that stuck out the most was that people in the south are all together more friendly, hospitable and courteous. Being in the south might make me forget how to open doors since everyone will do it for you. Politeness and good manners abound in the south. While people in Alaska, my home state, are generally nice, their courtesy dims in comparison with the Bible belt’s. I notice the difference everywhere I go. When I need something at a store here in the south, the store’s employees are always ready to help and make sure I am happy. In other places clerks never go the extra mile; you have to search them out to help. The bare minimum is acceptable. In contrast, the employees who work in the south seem to be held to a higher standard. Southerners are more open to strangers and hospitable. I cannot count the times that I have been invited and welcomed into someone’s house. The south even has a nice way of insulting people, “bless his heart.”…

    To begin with, Mexican cuisine in Texas started out with a famous dish called Tex-Mex. Moreover, in Debbie Gold’s “Women in Business” she states, “the name for Tex-Mex was originally the nickname for the Texas Mexican railway, which was located in Southern Texas” (Gold 42). In addition, Tex-Mex is the “mix of Mexican culinary traditions encountered by pioneers coming to Texas from other parts of the United States and other countries and bringing in their own flavors and cooking traditions with them” (Gold 40). Above all, Tex-Mex is not really an authentic Mexican cuisine but because Americans associate it as one Mexican cuisine restaurants embrace it. Likewise, Tex-Mex is an interesting choice to choose from when deciding where to eat out mainly…

    Following the Civil War, the majority of blacks in the South remained where they were, as their rural farming skills were really only needed in the plantations of the South. Furthermore, the former slaves considered family to be an extremely important part of one another’s lives, and didn’t want to leave family members behind by moving north. The children of these former slaves, and many generations following, were subject to the racism that had long been in the hearts and minds of those living in the South. This racial bias can be seen blatantly in Coming of Age in Mississippi. Throughout the Civil Rights Movement, blacks were treated with disdain and contempt, especially in the South.…

    “Southern hospitality… not a tangible thing, but an attitude which has been ingrained in southerners forever…” Bee Jackson. Bee Jackson states southern hospitality in perfect truth. Just as a bee’s instinct instructs the bee to concoct honey, so the culture dictates the hospitality of the south. I believe that the Gospel, taught from the pulpits of the many southern churches, inspires this hospitality. My southern experiences fill my mind with memories of welcome, hospitality, and acceptance. Welcome of the highest quality creates a southern experience to remember. Even sayings that southerners use like “Come by anytime!” hint to the geniality of the south. Constant welcome, unconditional hospitality, and accepting ladies generate a loving atmosphere.…

    First, most African Americans in the Deep South didn't receive the luxury that they deserved. Examples consisted of not being able to eat at every restaurant, cafe, not being able to get a room in a hotel, and not being able to get off a bus for bathroom breaks. The author states, "I'd like to go to the rest room." I smiled and moved to step down. He tightened his grip on the door facings and shouldered in close to block me. "Does your ticket say for you to get off here?" he asked. "No sir, but the others—" "Then you will get your ass back in your seat and don't you move till we get to Hattiesburg," he commanded. "You mean I can't go…

    However, blacks in the south of America had made much less progress socially. The South still experience de jure segregation and Jim Crow laws. This meant that they could legally be segregated and that they were ‘separate but equal.’ When it comes to segregation the south had made much less progress than the north. Also, class did not make a difference for black people in the south, for example, young Martin Luther King and his father were middle class but still unable to mix with white people in public places. For poorer blacks in the South there was very little inclination to publically challenge Jim Crow laws. However, dissatisfaction was increasing and an activist minority for keenly campaigning for change and trying to make more progress for Southern blacks. There was not a lot of progress made but there was some which inspired people to make more progress.…

    Our restaurant does not have a mission statement, however the restaurant prides on featuring BBQ in the “Slow Smoked Memphis Style”. The restaurant fulfills its mission everyday by cooking fresh slow smoked Memphis style BBQ. The food we serve is cooked every morning fresh and there is also a batch of food that comes out of our smoker in the midday for our evening sales. In my opinion, we do fairly well in fulfilling our mission and if there are any complaints or concerns we are more than content to resolve any…

    The Southern way of thinking for many whites remained constant from the 1900s to 1950s. There was racial intolerance and discrimination. Southern tradition was embedded into everyone, black and white. The causes for these prejudiced positions stemmed mainly from fear and many cared over from the time of slavery. The blacks on the other hand, were split. Some agreed with the complacent doctrine of Booker T. Washington, while others pushed for the social and political equality stressed by W.E.B. Du Bois. Whites expressed these attitudes by lynching and insinuating race riots. Blacks countered by, for example, creating their own "country" called Mound Bayou where blacks lived and prospered independently from whites. For many people, Southern tradition was a way of life, and was not to be questioned.…

    Across the South, the implementation of Reconstruction policies was achieved in multiple ways. While not always a success, Reconstruction had a definitive impact on the social, cultural economic and financial issues in states throughout the South. It is not clear whether or not Reconstruction was more beneficial to the country or harmful, but it is true, without a doubt, that it had an enormous impact on the Southern states. Both Gilles Vandal and Horace Bond in their articles discuss the impact that Reconstruction had on the southern states of Louisiana and Alabama, respectively. Both authors view Reconstruction through the same lenses of social and economic impact, but they approach the issues from different directions. It is important…

    The idea of Southernization came from the observation that "Southern" values and beliefs were becoming more important to the success of the government, reaching a climax in the 1990s, with a Democratic president and vice-president from the South, and Congressional leaders in both parties originating in the South. Some would agree that Southern values started to become more and more important in national elections through the early 21st century. American journalists started to use the term "Southernization" in the late 2000s to describe the political and cultural effects. Credit is given to the American South for different values and beliefs, including religious fundamentalism, and patriotism or nationalism. Other than the cultural influence, many would comply that the South had permeated the national political stage.…
