As a white Southern male born in Tennessee and currently living in Georgia, I would definitely agree that Southern men are often stereotyped as dumb, racist, violent, crazy or all of those together. Of course, it’s not like we have more of these kinds of males than most other places, but the Southern version has its own distinctive “flavor” that has been imortalized in literature, film and on stage since at least the time of Mark Twain and “The Adventures of Huckelberry Finn.” However, these characters were usually based on real-life counterparts who could be found in abundance at different times in history, so it wasn’t all made up. Of course, if Southern white guys are going to be stereotyped, I wish we got stereotyped as the “Southern gentleman” type more often. It’s hard being the only one.
