      I don't think any region of the US really groups themselves in such a way as many Southerners do. When most refer to the Northeast or Southwest, they're more or less just talking about the region, not really its inhabitants.

    I would disagree. It seems that people group themselves and others into preselected groups based on regions and their associated cultures. Obviously there are example of groups determined by cities and states, but I think it extends into regions as well.

    Think of the people who state they are from the Midwest, or are Midwesterners. Or the people who consider themselves from the West Coast. These are both geographical regions, but there is a culture attached to them as well. We even have the "Left Coast".

Like you said, "they are from the Midwest." That's just talking about the region. There really isn't much culture behind it. Once upon a time "midwest" actually rang true, but these days, where the midwest actually lies isn't even sufficiently ironed out. Sometimes it includes Appalachian states or Plains states, and other times not.

"West Coast" only refers to the region, not a cultural unit. Oregoners are nothing like Californians are nothing like Washingtonians.

No one is getting into fights about these places (except maybe a rapper who's stuck in the 90s). Not so when it comes to the South!
