The Different Sides of Texas
Posted: Jul 06 2013
Where are you from? This is possibly one of the most difficult questions that someone can ask you as an American, or more specifically, as a Texan. Some will go into long, drawn out explanations about their heritage, and describe every part that comes together to make up their personal identity. Others will simply say that they’re from a certain U.S. state. Texans however have another, more precise way to describe themselves. As Texans know, residents of Texas are Texans, but not all Texans are the same. This clip from the film Bernie quite bluntly describes the differences in Texas in a way that most Texans understand, but most non-Texans struggle to comprehend. Lets just say that not all of us are from East Texas. Some of us actually drive Mercedes', much to the dismay of the People’s Republic of Austin.
