..you know the reason it has more posts is cause southerners read slower.

Have you ever seen other parts of Jersey, or just Newark? Morris County, NJ was the richest county in the country two years ago. While some of NJ is trashy at least we can boast to having:
-Wealth
-Good school districts (even Shabazz in Newark produces great D1 athletes)
-Booming job market/among lowest national unemployment rates
-Decent beaches (it's not the hamptons or bermuda, but not too shabby)
-NY teams play at the Meadowlands rather their own state (may change w/ Jets)
-great shopping (outlets, Short Hills mall ranked in top 10 malls)
-prime real estate (some houses here are worth more than entire towns down south)
-diversity (not everyone's dumb and white)

since when did producing great athletes equal being a good school??
have you checked real estate in Charleston?? Savannah? Atlanta?
and the lack of diversity in the South??  have you been here??  did you open your eyes??

NJ has one of the best school systems in the country... most of my friends who went to NJ public schools have friends at multiple ivies and other great colleges, and had access to almost every AP course imaginable.

have any of you ever been here?  really, have you?  or are you basing your lack of diverstiy in the South on preconceived notions of racism?  that's completely different.

ive been to all the southern states except mississippi and arkansas.  aside from the large cities like Atlanta and St. Louis, i didnt see much diversity.

The funny thing about this is I was listening to a Belle and Sebastian album today... and they were talking about this. :D

i never said they didn't - only how does producing athletes indicate a great school system.  read the posts before chiming in

hmm..well, i guess that depends on what you're looking for.  by your standards, the US prob isn't all that diverse.

...you think 'cause your school has 3 black kids and a handful of asians that you're diverse.
