I do know this is just a joke, but people just don't seem to realize that Alabama is one of the most important engineering states in the USA. It is Alabama that builds the missiles and spacecraft that are so near and dear to the US. Also, we have one of the biggest military bases in the USA (The Redstone Arsenal). Also, the rednecks and hillbillies are the last true Americans in the US today, and the Southern accent is pretty awesome. It saddens me that I have lived in Alabama since I was 3 but don't hardly have an accent...

Your comment right here wins it all, Alabama is an amazing state! Out of all the states I have lived in *due to family military* It has been my most favorite State! The Red Stone Arsenal is also large, its a shame I had to leave the South for the West Coast, but ONE DAY I will come back to that state! I agree with your statement there.

Lol Rednecks and Hillbillies are not the last true Americans, the only true Americans are Native no matter how many years go by, no matter how European Americans love to ignore that they're immigrants to this land.

I know Im going to be the bad guy by saying this but...since you have no problem using our technology get over it.The united states as it is today,superpower,innovator of new medicine,science,& technology,meddler,helper,hated,loved,feared,welcoming to EVERBODY,was built by those Europeans you mentioned, many of which were trying to escape presecution from their own lands.

Thing is the natives migrated to america from Serbia in waves so....yeah,nobody is an original american per say.But if it makes you feel better everything ends.One day america will be devoid of everything we know & when our sun finally dies none of this will matter.So just be happy to be alive and stop being a slave to the past.

No problem, just keep in mind that many of us still have native blood and we really don't like when they call European Americans, the real Americans, we're still here.

I know this ended a while ago, and not to re-open a wound or anything, but I wasn't aware that American Indians were particular to the term 'American'. Although I was told by a college professor, who frequently visits reservations and concentrated on American Indian history when majoring in History, that if you do not know the tribal name, then most 'Indians' prefer the term American Indian. Indian in itself is also a term that seems odd for American Indians to be particular to, seeing as it comes from Europeans, whom you (referring to 77lmaHuman77, not all American Indians) are so opposed to. My original point, however, was that American is a term invented by the Europeans as well, so why use it if you dislike them so?

A 'real' American is anyone who lives in the United States of America. (You can be born here or become a citizen.) There is no stereotype to identify all Americans in this country. Now, if you were talking a Native American, then anyone who was born in this country is considered a Native American. No, Native American does not apply only to American Indians. Not to mention, many people of European descent also have American Indian ancestors. (Definitely don't want to get into that discussion though.)

I understand the persecution the American Indians suffered at the hands of the colonizers, but some might say, "they gave as good as they got". American Indians were by no means the peaceful, hippie people they are often depicted as, which, I think, is a disgrace to the culture to see it as so. Eventually, they did get the short end of the stick, being sent to reservations and all the other things they had to endure (such as in the 80s with boarding schools to make them more 'American'). But that, my fellow American, is the past. We should know the past, embrace it, learn from it, and then move forward.

Now, I'm going to end my piece here, and hope that we can all learn to stop seeking retribution for our ancestors (I'd have plenty of petitions to file if I did) and try to honor their lives with bettering our own. Shake hands and move along folks!

Alabama is not where you hide people you don't care to see again or think of as junk. Alabama is a state with a lot of junk in it now (thanks to the tornado) and a football legacy that remains untouched. Proudly from Mobile, I can say that there's a lot more rednecks and hillbilly hicks in South Carolina. (:

Well you know, Alabamians put up with a lot of shit from other states, and it doesn't really bother me. (ex: how stupid we are, how we are hicks, incest, etc.) but I don't like when people make stereotypes about a state, or a group of people as a whole.

Well most people do it too. We make sterotypes and don't even realize it because we've never been and so we don't know how it really is there, only how we THINK it is.

Actually you're a pretty damn strong person to admit a flaw that everybody has but nobody wants to talk about.I'll gladly make fun of Britain for losing the american revolution but when someone mentions Sherman burning Atlanta to the ground...that hurts.

And be proud of Alabama for its a lovely state with a gentle southern accent.My friends from other countries say us Georgians have a harsh accent compared to the ones you hear in Alabama.

Yes, since the other 49 states are so much more intelligent, refined and tolerant. The only thing people know about Alabama are the sterotypes created by people who've never lived there. The tagline isn't even funny.
