To be truthful, I am sick of the stereotypes. Some rural people do hold themselves over urban folk, but by and large, urban folk seem to think that
they are superior to those that live in the country. Why would that be?
I’ve seen it firsthand way to many times. I lived in quite a few places across the world and across the U.S. And from what I’ve seen, this is a
mainly a U.S. problem.
RedNecks, HillBillies, City Slickers, FlatLanders, etc, etc, etc. T&C forbids the more colorful terms, but I’m sure you’ve heard them.
People that live in both the rural and urban areas ALL provide mutually beneficial benefits.
I will admit that I am a country boy at heart, but have lived in the city as well. Like I have said, I have heard disparaging remarks from my country
friends concerning city folk, but I hear all too often demeaning remarks in regards to those living in the country from the city folk.
Cities provide logistics, manufacturing on a large scale, large medical centers, etc.
Rural areas provide crops & meat, manufacturing on a smaller scale, etc. Oh, and they also have a lower crime rate.
Long rant short, we need each other. Stop putting yourself on a pedestal.
