People walk around saying "Howdy Partner". Pre game festivities have the feel of being at a rodeo.

The overall state of Texas has more in common with New Mexico and Arizona than they do with South Carolina and Georgia.
Why do people believe these crazy stereotypes?

I know, Texas and Oklahoma have NOTHING to do with the core Southwestern states other than (latitude).

Oklahoma in particular is a blended state with characteristics that are strongly Midwest with roots in the deep South and Southwest. Texas is similar but very significantly less Midwest influence.

People really should get out more instead of citing stereotypes as if they are fact. ...

I have never even said howdy. Also, places like houston and dallas dont have these stereotypes either.

The only place that lives up to the stereotypes is parts of Ark, i can say this, because my dad is from Arkansas, and everyone in his family but him has the funniest southern accent, and people make fun of my cousin's accent when he comes to tulsa...

I hate getting into these arguments... I don't know why they are always brought up. It's always someone hating on OK who isn't from here.

Anyway, I thought we came to the conclusion that Oklahoma has a mixture of midwest, south, and southwest. It's very unique in this respect.

And you've never heard someone say "howdy" or "y'all" around here? I'd like to say that is crazy, but I do not know your social situation or area. Perhaps if you live in midtown or downtown, I could see that. But when you start to get out of the actual cities, or even when you get to the suburbs, it becomes very apparent.

And people always notice a slight drawl when my family and I are traveling. And I don't even believe we have strong accents, just pretty much a mixture of midwest and south. Definitely not strong south, though.

But, I'm done.

I'd say you would probably hear Ya'all but you probably would NOT hear 'Howdy' as much in Oklahoma (particularly OKC and Tulsa).

In fact, I think the whole country says Ya'all by now, so Im not sure why people like to stereotype that as backwater; who says 'you-guys' for example, don't people regardless of where they are just simply say 'ya'all'?

Sorry to throw the thread off, but I agree with TU'Cane in that Oklahoma is probably the most unique state in that it has cultural influences from 3 distinct regions and blends them nicely such that the state acts like all three in the way it acts. I would say Midwest is the strongest influence to culture, South is the strongest to linguistics, and Southwest is the strongest to history and geography (latitude only in that regard, however - no deserts/arid areas in OK).
