I was just reading one of the latest reviews on Secrets Aura and found a comment that perturbed me. "The guests mostly come from CO, OK, TX and are not the most sophisticated bunch. The guests who have been coming to this Aura for years were a rough party bunch"
What is the deal with judging people by what part of the country they are from? We overheard this SEVERAL times in conversation while at the resort as well, comments like, "OOOHHHHH, well we are from California and we just don't understand anything about Midwesterners. We can't relate." Sure, is it possible the groups from OK, TX, CO weren't very classy? Absolutely!! But does that have anything to do with the state they are from...uh, no.
Are people so sheltered and ignorant that they are able to determine they dislike the population of an entire area of the country or an entire group of people by state??
We are from Missouri, which often gets its own stereotypes, and very unfairly so. Part of what we enjoy so much about vacation is meeting new people who are from different places, have different experiences, stories and accents. On our trip, we met people from all over- from Denver, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Nashville, New Zealand, all over Oklahoma, New York, LA, Onatrio, etc.
Just don't get it, so maybe someone can help shed some light on this for me.
