10 Stereotypes About North Carolina That Need To Be Put To Rest – Right Now

The majority of stereotypes and ideologies originate from a person (or group) that has rarely, occasionally, or even never truly experienced a culture. It’s more of an ‘outside looking in’ phenomenon that comes with ‘typing’ a place when you’ve never really gotten to know the place or culture to begin with.

I think we can say this is true for North Carolina. We have a number of stereotypes…some hilarious and true and some that are complete nonsense. Like these 10!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
