    I'm so glad I grew up when I did. You know, before they got uppity.

    And what the fuck is that?

    1) No one remembers slavery.

    2) Isn't that the problem of the people who associate it with those things?

    1) That's not what the confederacy represents, at least solely.

    2) Directly attacking African-Americans would be a direct attack on them. Wearing a flag is not.

    ...for example, the Confederacy?!

    Too bad they don't teach American History anymore.

    And another thing... black people are now getting outraged over possibly derogatory terms for white people?

    No. Cockface. We don't all know the connotation of 'redneck'. Unfortunately, Kirby did not elaborate on the connotation of redneck. But we are all expected to know the connotation of redneck because certain stereotypes are just fine and dandy.

    More importantly.

    Karl Malone is pissed......because his high school did not have redneck day.

    This. We didn't get outraged for Mexicans when we did Beaner Day in school. It fell on Taco Tuesdays so it was a win-win.

    We had a redneck day. Kids drove their tractors to school. It really sucked where I grew up.

    People, let's show some sensitivity here. They are called Appalachian-Americans.

    Redneck day is pretty much every day at my school. Ag classes were easily the most popular electives.

    Rednecks are never offended by being called rednecks. They take pride in it.

    Around here at least, it's pretty much redneck > hick > hillbilly > white trash.

    Although hick and redneck are different depending on who you ask. I've always been of the opinion that hicks are less educated/successful rednecks.

    Exactly.

    I blame Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy for redneck pride.

    I've read a few theories about the origin of the term, and none of them are even remotely racist. It either comes from:
    1. Scottish Presbyterians in the 1640s who rejected rule by Bishops and wore red cloths around their necks to show their opposition
    2. Striking coal miners who wore red bandanas around their necks in the 1920s who wore red bandanas as a display of solidarity
    3. Lower-class white people who performed manual labor outdoors and got sunburned necks
    Option #3 is the closest to how it is used today, which isn't racist. The other 2 options are also not racist in even the vaguest way, so whatever "connotation" this dummy is implying doesn't exist. I doubt she even knows what she means, either. If she did, she would have just explained it instead of acting like it's common knowledge. I guess it's just racist to refer to white people in any way, shape, or form because black people will feel excluded on account of not being white. Next year they'll complain about St. Patrick's Day and call for the expulsion of any whitey who questions Black History Month.

    The dumb asses see the Confederate Battle Flag and get all uppity.

    The War of Northern Aggression wasn't about slavery (that became an issue later in the war) as old Abe never freed the coloreds in the North. Just the states in rebellion.

    Don't, they have nothing to do with it. My family is full of them, and I probably am one to an extent. Rednecks for the most part aren't sitting around outside a trailer drinking beer in a wife beater (that's white trash). Their pride usually stems from being hard working, independent, ownership (focused around property and agricultural-based assets that turn a profit), love for country, etc. Unlike white trash people, a "redneck" would rather die than go on welfare. Now like I said, redneck and hick may be interchangeable in different parts of the country. "You might be a redneck" jokes don't really apply to anyone I know.

    Foxworthy and The Cable Guy were parodies of the the douche bag loser rednecks hung out with growing up... the dude who couldn't keep is job at the mill because he was a fuck up and a dumb ass. Like all comedy it's obnoxious and embellished, and I think most of their fans are more laughing at that, rather than finding validation for their shitty lives. No "redneck" I know would be proud to be an example in Foxworthy's act.

    I don't see Chris King trying to give up Mulatto Monday, and half of Spook Saturday (after 12pm, of course).
