When it comes to America people genrealy don't know much of Houston or Texas. We are a city in a state that's lw on the radar. When you ask people where Houston or even Texas is they don't know. That's if they've heard of it at all. America has a bad habbit of think crazy sillyness about people they don't know. Sadly some are even in a huge part of their country.When it comes to Texas people have silly 19th century stereotypes in mind, Like we ride horses,carry guns,or wear 6 gallon hats. Being here and most people here know that's compltly stupid Like people would tell me when they go Up North people speak that they think we have oil derricks in our backyards. George W.Bush and King Of The Hill don't help the perpetuation of the stereotypes. Texas is infact hi-tech,modern,and has one of the world's most diverse societies. Houston is the nation's 3rd gayest city and 4th largest.When they come here,ther're always suprised on how urban it is and that there aren't that many rednecks. So if you've ever come to Houston or even Texas tell your opinion and what's your impression of The Lone Star.
