One of A Texan's posts has me wondering...am I a redneck?? What is a redneck, really?
haha i'm a redneck lmao ... i dont know what classifies anyone as a redneck but it comes in part to having a tan neck but white back and chest.. usually the lower arms are tan too... farmers tan heck idk lol
Redneck is a disparaging:
 term that refers to a person who is stereotypically Caucasian and of lower social-economic status in the United States, particularly referring to those living in rural areas. Originally limited to the Southern United States,:
 and then to Appalachia, the term has become widely used throughout North America.
i looked it up cuz you got me wondering too lol i found it on wikipedia lol and based on the def i am a redneck lmao
I'm from Texas, but lived in Mississippi for 15 years. Go to Mississippi and compare yourself to those REDNECKS. You're probably just a hick
I get one when I stay out in the sun too long....
(this topic could get heated too...! )
But after I saw a few episodes of "My Big Redneck Wedding," I discovered that there are rednecks all over the US! They're not restricted to the South.
My first husband used to call me a hillbilly. I have always been proud of the fact of my roots. I will find my Grandpa's song about our clan sometime and put it in a hub. At any rate, habee you know what a redneck is, you've seen The Dukes of Hazzard. Boss Hogg and the deputy, Cletus was it? they were rednecks.
omg i love that movie! im from the south as well and damn proud if it lol ... terry picks on me too bout my accent and all but hey i love it
I always consider being called a "redneck" (and I've been called that as well as "hillbilly") a compliment too.
No matter how the other person says it.
'Cause I is proud 'a' bein' a hillbilly, really.
Hillbillies kinda make their own rules of eddikit and pernunciation. Hay, why not?! We'uns' have the same rights to air upinions as eenywon elss.
(I'm being honest and truthful.)
Pinky, I just fanned you! I read a couple of your hubs earlier, and I think I commented on at least one of them.
I have a picture my uncle sent of a Redneck Christmas, But I don't know how to put it in here
Okay My new profile image is Redneck Christmas. I hope you'r still here, because I can't go anywhere dressed like this
A redneck is me. I realize its supposed to be an insult, but I dont really care. I am damn proud of who I am, and where I am from.
I have been barefoot and pregnant, with pride, 3 times.
I love camo. I own a gun. I have once owned a lawn tractor, held together by duct tape. I spend my summers helpign hubby cut, split and stack fire wood. We raise our own chickens for eggs and food. You should see the people from the new housing development, driving by in their saabs, stare on butchering day....
Four wheeling is fun, even better if you get stuck. In the words of Gretchen Wilson, I work hard, I PLAY HARDER.
Some folks'lll never eat a skunk
But then again, some folks'll
Like Cletus, the slack-jawed yokel
Most folks'll never lose a toe
But then again, some folks'll
Like Cletus, the slack-jawed yokel
I consider most of the people in my home state of Vermont, way up north, to be rednecks. I use to fit the redneck brand perfectly.
Drove around in a pickup with a rifle in the back window. Covered myself in camouflage and hunted with a bow. Camped out in the back of my pickup. Dressed all the time in black and red hunting jacket.
I guess anyone who lives in the country could be called rednecks. City folks call anyone outside the city rednecks. But yeah, they usually are white folks.
Yep....Redneck. visit Roy D Mercer in his virtual doublewide and click on the links to hear what a real redneck sounds like.
I first heard this word when I was watching "The Family Guy" -- some kind of people who love their trucks and have guns and then sit outside their houses with their sofa?? Is it a negative or a postive stereotypes??
Oh it's definitely a negative stereotype prettydarkhorse. It means your a bit uneducated, don't do anything but sit around and drink beer and shoot anything that moves!
I AM uneducated.I DO own a gun. I have an old van seat outside, for sitting by the bonfire, I am white. Im not worried about the fact that somebody (like my mother or sister) might consider these to be reasons to look down on me.
PrettyD, its supposed to be an insult.
I think it would be, if I let it.
hey Bill. Hunting coats n camo, thats hot.
oh my, but they are not all like that right? hmmmmm, How about here in TX, are there many rednecks here? never benn out and about only at DALLS
"I'm a redneck..I got scars on my knuckles...
I'm a redneck...wearing big shiny buckles...
I'm a redneck...dating "honky-tonk" queens...
I'm a redneck...!"
Well.... I tried to find out who sung this 'un...way back in the '70's...but it seems to be buried in the "way back whens" on the internet...back past Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman"....However...this song described perfectly what a "redneck" is....Yeee-Haaa!
Well, I got me a shotgun and two big ol' dogs. I like fishin' and huntin', and we have us a pick-em-up truck. But I gots me a college edumercation! I used to couldn't spell college gradjut - now I are one!
Oopsidaisy; there's a typogeraffical errer....or sum kinda errer in that last post....

"'Cause I AM proud 'a' bein' a hillbilly,....."
Not IS. Silly me.
Thanks fer going back...and doin' sum of that there fancy..."ED-N-TIN", Brenda...It makes a hole lot'ta more sense now. Shoot dang...the other was like leaving the flour out'ta the corn-bread!
thats what happens when wimmen be out the kitchen....
Ask Jeff Foxworthy, he'll tell you.
One of my favorites. If your father walks you to school because you are in the same grade. You might be a redneck.
If you stare at a carton of orange juice because it says concentrate. You might be a redneck.
A new one.
If your grandmother comes out of the bathroom and says "Yaw come in here and take a look at this sucker before I flush it."
You might be a redneck.
If people come to your house every day thinking your having a yard sale. You might be a red neck.
If your outdoor furniture, is also your living room furniture.
I could go on. But, you get the point.
Another good one, if you go to the dentist because your tooth hurts, and you only have one tooth. You might be a redneck.
A redneck was originally a common worker living in the USA and of Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Celtic linage. The redness of the neck especially the back of the neck comes from the performance of hard work out in the open. Over time redneck came to mean someone white, pig ignorant and racist.
That was another one of those liberal twistings of definitions.
It's getting even more common these days for our dictionaries to contain hogwash perpetuated by liberals.
I've been called a redneck, a hillbilly, a hick, and a river rat many times. Most people don't use it as an insult though. Around here, it's a compliment, a way of life. When I think of rednecks, hillbillies, hicks, and river rats; I think of people who are resourceful, people who know how to survive without having much, people who work hard and know how to have fun while they're doing it. I'm proud to be called a redneck

I have just had my latest hub copied onto flixya - a site which I have had to get quite a number of my hubs deleted from when they have been stolen and added there. This particular thief I won't be persuing though -they are so stupid that they left my affiliate link in the hub- I only noticed the...

Just wondering what people think on this topic, I don't want to know how much you do it, just wondering if anyone thinks there is a standard or rule as to how much!I'm of the thinking that 3-4 times a week is acceptable.
