Stereotypical statements about everything are pretty common in media today, including the 50 states. It doesn't matter which state you come from in the USA, you definitely hold some sentimental beliefs about your territory but stereotypes aren't necessarily bad every time. They’re really just generalizations about a group of people based on assumed shared qualities or behaviors. This one user from Reddit, who goes by u/GeorgeVilliers, popped an interesting question on the subreddit of r/AskAnAmerican and a bunch of hilarious responses poured in the comment section. The question read: "What stereotypes are associated with each state?" Since the person asking the question hails from England, we can only assume they were curious about the various regional stereotypes in America.
