We've already been though eight pages on the definition. The only ones finding it offensive are the ones that want to be offended.



True.

And Clinton was actually referring to himself and his own upbringing.




Just replace the "N" word with Rednecks and you might just understand what's going on here.


Replace it with "beautiful" and you get something else. What's your point? We're not talking about the n word.


We're talking about labeling with racist "words" beautiful isn't one of them.


Neither is redneck. That's the point.


Please tell me you are not this politically blinded by your party?


I'm not even American dude BUT I know more than one redneck and they are proud to be.

Perhaps someone can demonstrate the use of the word "redneck" in close association with White hate groups?

Can someone demonstrate it being used on signs directed at insulting and demeaning White folks?

What about the time it was chanted by someone lynching a White man?

Thank you kindly.


Tell you what go into rural USA, for a couple weeks, and address the poor white folks as "Rednecks", come back how that all plays out for you.

And here I thought you had promised not to respond to me... dangit.

I live in Georgia, bud. I've lived and worked in rural West Georgia for 50 years.

You're barking up the wrong tree completely. (And you're completely and utterly wrong in your belief.)

There's the issue you don't live in the USA, come down around my area and use the term "Rednecks". It will get you dirty looks from the women and most likely missing teeth from the men.

He said Trump's base, not all.

And there are rednecks up north as well.


Redneck, hick, hillbilly all mean pretty much the same thing.

Redneck - South

Hick - North

Hillbilly - generic

Can we issue a similar poll to those who are offended by the N word yet celebrate it's use among themselves and in the culture they consume?

Redneck actually refers to a red bandana worn around the neck.

Really has nothing to do with geographic location or race.

It actually refers to white workers, often times poor, who worked outside all day under the sun.

The outcome was often a red neck from exposure.

Sure.

Let us know what you find.

I am sure the results would be exactly the same as your proposed poll.

Right.

And the epithet addresses the difference in social class, NOT race.

As a Redneck I disagree.

It may have meant that in the beginning, but it has long since morphed into what it is.

It is the same for Greengo. It started out meaning one thing, but it has morphed.

The exposure part is incorrect.

It comes from wearing a red bandana around the neck. I think it was a group of coal miners that started wearing the red bandana as a type of silent protest and unity.

But, then it also would be mostly laborers or some type.

Oh, well, then you're just working on restating your own beliefs then ... you're not interested in what people have to say.

That's the difference in our two suggestions.

True, it has morphed.

Today, its basically blue collar workers - - mostly white - - I believe.

I don't know where you get that from, but really red neck refers to red neck sunburns. Working out in the sun all day and in different fields getting a distinguished red neck from it.


My coal mining grandaddy was a hillbilly not a red neck.

My other oil field working grandaddy was a redneck.
