No its real. Just a lot of northern people moved south and cloud the numbers.
yup very very true
it used to b but now every ones tranplanted
I think it does exist, but there is also a huge set of hidden social rules. Often the southern habit of a smile and easy going demeanor masks something less than 'nice'.
It honestly just depends on where you are in the south. If you're in a large southern city (Memphis, Atlanta, etc.) there probably won't be much. If you go to smaller cities or towns and get to know the people it's totally clear that southern hospitality is NOT a myth!
I'm Mexican, and I always thought, that I would be lynched in the south, especially with all the confederate flags flying freely, but it turns out they are just a bunch of friendly folks. I like it.
I think it depends on the individuals.
No, it's real.
