Southern United States, also known as the American South, Dixie, or simply the South, is a region in southeastern United States, generally though not exclusively considered to be south of the Mason and Dixon Line, the Ohio River, and the 36°30′ parallel. The region was historically set apart from other sections of the country by a complex of factors: a long growing season, its staple crop patterns, the plantation system, and Black agricultural labor.

Southern nationalists may state that the White settlers there had somewhat different genetics from other White settlers, influencing various differences.[1]
