1. You talk pretty.
Everyone will think your Alabama accent is a sign that you’re from some backwater slum where shoes were optional and electricity was a luxury. Thanks to the media, you’ll have to take care to shatter that stereotype on an individual level with every person you meet.
2. You grew up without basic amenities.
Except you did, just like everyone else in the United States. You know: Power, paved roads, running water, basic housing, socks or shoes, the Internet.
It might shock people, but yes, we have all of those things. We’re not an uncontacted tribe in Peru. We have an electrical grid. Some of us even understand Internet memes.
