The intended meaning of the sentence is to kinda compare one aspect of Southeasterners with Northeasterners.Thus, it cannot be SE's sharing something with NE's. The sentence wants to state that SE's dont share as NE's do -something to this effect. Hence 'share with' in this context is wrong.

b/w A and C, I prefer C.
