A redneck is a stereotypical Southern person from the US. A hick, a hillbilly, inbred, etc. (I'm from the South so I can say all that). Rednecks have a great love for the Rebel Flag, drink a lot of beer, say y'all alot, typically live in trailers, drive pick-up trucks, cuss, yell when they're speaking, and are generally missing teeth. Oh! And they refer to their wives or girlfriends as "My old lady", "Momma", or "B!tch git over here 'fore I hit you wit mah beer!"
Thank you, Becca. Sounds a bit like here in Scotland with a twist on the accent! Seriously, I was fairly sure that "Redneck" meant something to do with the South but not quite what. I actually have the Flag of the Confederacy tattoed on my upper right arm - but that's a long story and something that was done more than twenty years ago... Sounds like I'm a redneck without the "Bitch get over here," bit. (That is not a corny chat up line!) Thanks again
You're welcome. And just so you know, we're not all like that. We even make fun of rednecks down here. Most of us are literate, have most of our teeth, and use proper English with a thick accent (I can't help the accent as hard as I try...lol).
I love the accent of Southern Belles! I got a call this year in April on my birthday from an old friend of the family that I know from Germany - native of South Carolina - who works for the US forces in a NATO base near Munich. It was such an amazing surprise to hear her wonderful voice say, "Hey, happy birthday! I bet you don't know who this is!" It was even better to be able to say, "Hi, Judy! Thank you so much!"
Well, are you? Let us all know. If you are, At least have the minerals to own up to it. If not let, let us know as well. And please, none of the phony remarks like, "I love black people." even if you mean it....
