Quantcast

There is a difference between a country boy/girl and a redneck.

Lately I've been making derogatory remarks on several polls, blogs, etc. about "rednecks". I just want to clarify that when I say "redneck", I'm not referring to all country folk; I'm referring only to a particular subculture within country culture. Rednecks are white folk who like to fight and feud, break the law (and often find themselves in jail), speak with a heavy drawl, are both racist and xenophobic, chew tobacco, go mud boggin' in jacked-up trucks, dog hunt out of season, are anti-education, and possess a few other traits that I can't recollect. Most rednecks are either south Georgia or north Florida "crackers", though others exist throughout the country, including Sarah Palin! (I never would have imagined that rednecks are alive and well in Alaska until I saw her on TV.) I cannot stand rednecks, but I love other country folk. How can I not? I'm a Cajun.
You!

    Ok so all people who hunt, fish, chew, and drink are rednecks? what about the city boys who like to hunt, fish, and drink?? Don't give me the bullsh*t that "there ain't no such thing as a city boy hunting, fishing or drinking," I know plenty, and as far as being racist, as far back in the woods as I live, I've never heard a single racist thing said from anyone, when it comes to education, how come my whole graduating class of "gun totin' deer shootin' levi chewin' rednecks" are all attending four year universities?

    Redneck: a person who enjoys life to the fullest, but puts his family before his fun, who works for what he has, most rednecks are gentle unless provoked into fighting, you will here little racist comments come out of their mouth, a rednecks education can go as far as he wants it to. Yes our hobbies are different then city folk but 99% the same as country folk, we both fish, hunt, "hog hunt" (which has no season), muddin', and pasture parties around a big bonfire.

    I don't want to here this bullsh*t about rednecks, either you are one or your not, there's no such thing as being a "Coonass" and a redneck.

    Oh and also you left out duck tape nimrod!

    does any of you kno where the trem redneck came from? if not let me tell you. in the 1920/1930 eastern Ky was a nonuion area and minners from west Vergina came to bring them a minning uion by force they wore red bandanas on their necks to show they where part of that. so being called a redneck its something to be proud of it doesnt mean any of the thing yall are saying and yes i am a redneck in college

    sorry for the bad spelling

    I fight went it comes to that point, I've broken the law (most people have in SOME way), I have a southern drawl, I'm not too fond of black folks but I'm NOT racist (they're just not my type to hangout with), I don't chew but I do drink budlight, I go mudding and I drive a jacked up truck, I love to hunt and fish, and I AM educated and I'm a FLORIDA CRACKER but that doesn't mean I'm a redneck, I'm just country! So get your information straight because obviously you have no idea what the difference is.

    Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me. Everyone, listen up: Florida/Georgia "Cracker" is a nice way to say "redneck", and it doesn't matter how high of an education a redneck gets, s/he'll continue to speak with the worst possible, nail-biting drawl, in public, out of pure spite for non-rednecks. Thanks for your input.
