Map Suggesting How the U.S. Could Be Split Into 4 Different Regions Sparks Uproar

A hypothetical map that has put forth a vision of the United States if it was split into four regional chunks has sparked a heated debate. The post garnered nearly 5,000 comments on social media, with users arguing over the theoretical prospect of cordoning off specific states into four categories: Northeast, Midwest, West and South. A major point of contention was including the state of Missouri in the South. “I’ll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I recognize Missourah!,” wrote one user. In reality, Missouri is very much in the Midwest, but some users in Kansas say they’re more than willing to give Missouri the boot. One user commented, “Might have to split into 5 sections: West, South, Midwest, Northeast, and Missouri.” Others chimed in with references to Missouri’s history, which doesn’t neatly fit in with the history of the South……..nor the history of the Midwest for that matter.
