Here's a pretty good article analysing Trump voters.

Between the article and dictionary definition: a working-class white person, especially a politically reactionary one from a rural area:

I'd say Bill Clinton is pretty accurate.

Who Are Donald Trump's Supporters, Really?: www.theatlantic.com...



If there were one question to identify a Trump supporter if you knew nothing else about him, what might it be? “Are you a middle-aged white man who hasn’t graduated from college?” might be a good one. But according to a survey from RAND Corporation, there is one that’s even better: Do you feel voiceless?

Oh okay. My bad you Redneck(Compliment).

(I'm going to use these brackets for awhile. It still feels awkward as a compliment to me. Please help me transition.)

yep

that has nothing to do with the fact that the word is used as an ethnic slur

Yeah, but it's a literal gold mine of controversy. They probably have thought of white-n-words before, but couldn't determine a letter.

Red States are Welfare Queens

Welfare Hypocrisy - Red States are the Real Freeloaders


Isn't that racist considering red states have the highest concentration of black residents?


Hmmm ... perhaps.

Why don't you prove to us that Red States have the highest concentration of Black residents to start?


This map should help...

indexmundi.com

Interesting to note is just how low the numbers are in the tradtionally blue states.

Actually, I said I know what the history of the term is.

And, see above, I did your Google list for you.

I'm sorry you take everything racially.

Rednecks in Georgia are ol' boys in trucks and cowboy boots. We have White ones, Black ones, Chicano ones, and I've even seen a few Asian ones lately.

Because they're blue? Or Because they're near a border and owned slaves? We didn't randomly parachute into America.

That is shocking. Wonder why?

How about Alaska, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Idaho ...

I don't call people names, by and large.

What happens when you do it?

exactly

it is not a term of endearment
it is a slur used to make less of someone

your defense of its use reflects on you

Where did I defend it's use again?

I just wonder why everything has to be made racial.

It's just very divisive.

I know it's impossible for some to parse it out, but basically, President Bill Clinton (have to make that distinction now), was saying the same thing that Hillary said about many Trump followers ... they're good, hard-working American people, some of whom are rednecks. It's not a slur in the South.


what was that you were saying about not defending the slurs use?
