    I've heard, I don't know if its true, that a redneck is a racist hillbilly.

    Rednecks are usually from rural area and hillbillies are always from the Appalachian Mountains. Rednecks tend to only help other rednecks while hillbillies generally will help anyone who asks for it politely.

    I understand that rednecks were so called because they cut the trees in the forest by profession and as a result, their necks would get red.

    The hillbillibes : The only memory I have of them is the show The Beverly Hillbillies which I enjoyed watching. I also enjoyed their comics. I guess their culture was different from the Hollywood culture but they won the Sweepstakes or something and became rich and moved in there, along with their culture. It was always fun reading those comics. The show never quite matched up.
