What Defines A Redneck? Part 2

Ok, so now you know the redneck basics.

I highly suggest you google "you might be a redneck if..." by Jeff Foxworthy. He is a comedian that has made a nice living making fun of rednecks - and his stuff is so true! Rednecks love him!

Now dictionary.com defines a redneck as:
red⋅neck  /ˈrɛdˌnɛk/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [red-nek] Show IPA Informal: Often Disparaging.
Use redneck in a Sentence:
–noun 1. an uneducated white farm laborer, esp. from the South.
2. a bigot or reactionary, esp. from the rural working class.

I don't necessarily agree with this definition. I think the common redneck is what you'd call a good 'ol boy. Now sure, there are quite a few that take it to the extreme, but I'd say most just have a different way of doing things.

Common redneck stereotypes (and there is truth to these):
*appliances and/or living room furniture in the front yard
*love their beer
*love God
*love family
*LOVE their country
*hunters; actually more like huntin' & fishin' - a deer head on the wall is always a tell-tell sign. I grew up with 2 deer heads and a bass! on the wall!

Well that just about does it! Consider yourself redneck educated! ;)

P.S. And just so ya know - white trash and rednecks are not equals! Big difference! Maybe I'll save that one for another post!
