  • Whats a redneck?

    Hi, I ain't takin the Mickey Mouse, I'm British. What is a redneck? It is mentioned in nearly every form of American media, and all that I can tell from it that it is a derogatory insult, its supposed to be a type of person, and maybe its Middle America? Please explain :monkey:

    When used as an insult- it means uneducated, beer swilling, obnoxious inbreeding hillbilly idiots. I prefer Jeff Foxworthy's definition- which is a "glorious lack of sophisticaton"

    I would bet other people have their own interpretations.

        Well, I don't think anyone knows for sure, but it's bound to have some relation to a) the fact that rednecks are usually (not always) involved in some sort of manual or construction-related jobs, therefore they are out in the sun, which weathers their skin, as well as the fact that, being rednecks, they have a penchant for beer drinking, which dilates the blood vessels in the skin, making it redder than it would be if they didn't frequently have alcohol in their systems.

        But that's just my theory.

        Rednecks are generally associated with certain activities, such as hunting, stupid stunts ("Y'all watch this..." generally followed by a trip to the emergency room), lack of education, lack of sophistication. Your basic Man U fan

        Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

          Redmecks are nmotly found in the south but you can find pokets of rednecks anywher. They are usually undereducated, drink massive amoumts of beer and live in trailors.They can usually be spotted driving large trucks flying the Stars and Bars. Rednecks are still fighting the civil war and the eat strange food. Redneck comes from the fact that since most of them are undereducated, they can only get nasty jobs working out in the sun.

            Actually, the term redneck origanally refeared to farmers especially in the south during the civil and post civil war eras. The term comes from the fact that when raising cows and chickens one gets bit by flys especially on the back of the neck turning that area red. Rich people in the south of course had people to work for them and therefor lack the red marks on their necks.
            In recent times the term has come to mean anyone whos educational and finantial level falls well below middle class and has become eqated with any blue coller worker not working in a city or large town.
