It sounds like most other Middle Atlantic states.  Where did the stereotype come from?

probably from NYC and its tourists, since that is the part of jersey they're most likely to see (north jersey)... ive been up here for 5 years now... moved from Maryland when i started college.  i like it.

I would hate God too if I lived in Jersey.

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)

Yea, NJ has it's bad parts...but I'd rather look at Newark and Camden than barns. It's easy for southerners to rip on NJ b/c of all the hearsay...but our teenagers hang out at malls while your's loiter at Walmart...we drive SUV's while you drive piece of sh*t pick-up trucks...you've got the KKK while we have street gangs...you drink moonshine, we blow lines... It's all relative.

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??

Diversity in the South? New Jersey is the TTT state of the north, but I'd take it over the south any day... at least I can escape NJ and take a train to either Manhattan, DC or Boston

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.
