I did not know that you had to wear shoes in the State of Arkansas. Where do they sell shoes anyway? Maybe at GOODWILL? I like to be able to squeeze the wine with my toes and be readily available to do this....Gets out the toe jam very good with the acidity in the wine juice.

I hate the incest thing,Arkansas might have some of that with cousins but I know good and well that it goes on elsewhere too.
I also don`t like that some think we are stupid,or just a bunch f hillbillies but if I am a hillbillie by gosh i`m proud to be one! LOL

Born and raised Arkansan and have traveled the world and always come back "Home". Heard it all, especially from those California Ladies who think nothing good about anybody unless your from the "Coast". LOL. But you know, I just look into their eyes and nod my head. Because honestly, this Arkansaw is the Diamond in the Rough. Let them think what they want and come and spend their money as a visitor, but leave it the way they found it.

I moved here from Chicago.
And I gotta say, Arkansas, at least from what I've seen in NE Arkansas, IS more illiterate. But its only slightly annoying at times. Personally, I'd be happy anywere in rural America. And yes indeed, I see more people with messed up/no teeth around here. Hey, mine are a bit crooked, but they are all there and white.

But, a corncob pipe is nice to puff on now and then. I think of my neighbors more like 'rednecks' than hillbillies or white trash. Rednecks and hillbillies I like. Cant say I like the white trash with 16 kids living in a trailer park on welfare, though.

The food is pretty good too. Now if ya'll could just get a Whitecastle around here. Sliders is the only thing I miss from Chicago/NE Indiana.

In spite of all the stereotypes and bad jokes (which I also find humor in) Arkansas is a very beautiful and unique state. I live in the Ozarks and am proud of my home and the history of the place I have CHOSEN to call my home. Northwest Arkansas has a booming economy and is filled with people of many different cultural backgrounds. There are few native Arkansans (or Arkansawyers) here anymore. Actually there were only a few in the first place. We transplants outnumber them now by at least 50-1. The natural beauty of the Ozarks is truly a national treasure. I can not think of any place in this country where the stereotypes given are less deserved than Arkansas, but I have a great sense of humor and can laugh with the best of them.

I hate the way many northerners and west coast people think we're all a bunch of dirt-eating hillbillies. Sure, we have our share of "white trash" if that's what you want to call them, and we have rednecks and hillbillies, and people with no front teeth that never learned to read, write, or speak proper English. But you know what? We also have some wonderful, caring, talented, intelligent, creative residents. Think Dizzy Dean, Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Maya Angelou, Mary Steenburgen, Bill Clinton (whether you like ole Bill or not, he was smart enough to make it to the oval office.....twice!). And God loves all of us equally.
I was born in Arkansas and have lived here all my life, can't imagine living anywhere else. And, oh yes, I love to go barefoot!

lmao brand new to this site but have thus far loved what I've read. stereotypes. ya gotta love em. have traveled west to east coast and every region has them. I have my overalls days and MOST of my original teeth and would still go barefoot if somewhere along the way I hadn't gotten tender feet lol

and if I had to be a stereotype, not knocking or putting anyone down, but I'd choose the hillbilly over the so cal surfer lol but do we really believe everybody in so cal looks/acts/talks like the stereotypical surfer dude? all one has to do is look around and see there's always somebody to poke fun at, and I see stereotypes as fun not fact, but lets face it, just like we can laugh at the "friends" characters on tv, I can see a little of each and every one in me, so I'm really laughing at myself :) my two pennies and ty's fer some belly giggles here ;)

like alot of people, i chose to make arkansas my home. i basically don't find stereotyping bad, just shows how ignorant some people can be. i ignore those that say i have a hillbilly accent, and even tell them that they're the one with the accent, not i.

i have most of my teeth, go around barefooted(hate shoes), and i'm proud of it.

how many people anywhere else can say that and it not come from the dentist..lmbo

Eagles soar with talons fixed
Sun rises above lakes mist
Waterfalls songs upon the pond
The cry of turtledoves from beyond
The sound of crickets fill the air
Fireflies dancing, illuminating with flair
Mountains majestic for this place
Folks encountered with smiles on their face
Hey Y'all is a welcome sound
The genuine warmness of home is found
In this land of beauty galore
Nature's abundance leaves us longing for more
We have faced our share of fallocies
Others not understanding the beauty we see
A place where one can still sit on the porch
And talk to their neighbor, for what it is worth
Our towns, our cities, our wonderful lakes
We all pull together to do what it takes
We are not hicks or redecks as often called
Just merely proud to be from Arkansas
