    Just tell me why YOU call it the Dirty South, where you got it from, and what the Dirty South means to you.

    Just a question out of curiousity.

    Man it's been the dutty ever since I've knowed anything.....I can't speak for the majority of the South but for Mississppi, Louisiana, and Dallas, Houston areas..it's dutty cuz of some of the thangs we do and have to do just to make it...I live in CA now and hate it I've been in CA for the past 13 years man and nothing compares to the South for me..that's the American Black folk Mecca ...I know the Sip is dutty because there are no jobs,a bad education system, and no youth activities where it matters. The South is it baby and I represent the Sip everyday all day 25/8 dog.....

    The Dirty Dirty

    I'm not an original Southerner but I've been hear long enough to comment on what the Dirty South means. As I sit hear in the Cackalack or Tar Heel State I believe what is meant by the Dirty South is that the South is just as hard as the North or the Westcoast. Most Northerners "including myself at one time" and Westsiders think southern people are slow, backward, country (or bama) and behind the times. Northerners and Westsiders think Southerners are hypontised by the Northern and Westside style. Well what Southerners want Northerners and Westsiders to know is not to let the southern drawl accent fool you. Southerners have just as much game as Northerners and Westsiders. Washington DC is a southern city. Enough said. Just like Master P said " we bout it".

    Peace

    The Dirty South is......a comfortable mixture of er'thang(city/country/the sticks/the ghetto/the boondocks all dat all jumbled together therefore making it Dirty. Back in the day you was somebody if you was from "UP Nawth" or from the west side or where ever and you talked "proper". The term is just a realization amongst those of us who are from the Dirty that "we is somebody too!" it's OKAY....to speak our country grammar. To be slow or backward or however the rest of the world sees us. It's OKAY to put Rims on anykind of car! If some of us ain't got sense enough to know that one gold tooth is enough....that's OKAY too. It's OKAY to eat fish and grits for breakfast. It's OKAY to have a college degree/high school diploma but be actin' like you ain't got no darn' sense or the reverse.....It's Okay for you to not have a college degree/high school and have all the sense in the world! See? Just plain ol' Dirty. Beautiful but dirty.
