Is "redneck" one of the few racist terms that are still accepted to say in todays society?

    I think you nailed it right there as to why its not viewed as a racist term. Its how some react to be called a certain term.

    Well said, Doc Snow. It still begs the question of whether or not it's acceptable to use this term. It's interesting how some words like "yuppie" or "geek" seem a little more acceptable, but it would be interesting to tease this apart.

    Most of the time when people talk about rednecks it's somebody that's white, I think it's silly to talk about the term redneck and say it's not about ethnicity when it clearly is. And in my experience the redneck term is used as something negative.
