Is the Civil War Still going on? Do Southerners Still hate the Yankees?

My friend is moving from yankee territory, to Ga, and he's a little apprehensive, due to the stories he's heard about the treatment the southerners give the transplant yankees...rude, hostile, and downright possessive of the south was how it was described to him.  What can he expect?

I'm in the south, not Ga but NC...I don't think that's true. He is probably getting horror stories from a select few.

People will give him shit for it, mostly joking. Just like a lot of yankees say shit about southerners. But you would have to go to a really backwoods town to find actual hate.

Yes the War of Northern Aggression is still going on!
If you dont eat grits, drink sweet tea, call everyone sugar, darling' or honey and use the word ma'am at least thirty seven times a week you have no business below the Mason Dixon line!!!

Its just plain shameful how these Yankees come down here disrespectin' our heritage.

I went from living in Michigan to living in GA, and I had no where near any experience like what he's heard. Now I have ran into a few racists people, but they were genearlly quiet about it, unless they drank alcohol lol

That's really kind of silly....people are people everywhere, abd he may get teased cor his accent just as a southerner would by friends made up north....but real aggression? Someone is having a laugh at his expense....

 Twenty years ago I went to a HS graduation once and was at a party afterwards and the other kids stood around questioning me, wanting to know what it was like growing up as a YANKEE.  I shit you not.  Seriously, I had no idea what the hell they were talking about and had to ask my cousin.  (his party and friend)

Very strange.
