Hi guys

I have no idea of how true this is, I'm sure it's all a bit tongue in cheek but I thought our American cousins might have a laugh at this study.


REDNECK AMERICA: THE TOP TEN
1. Atlanta, GA 6. Fort Worth, TX 2. Kansas City, MO 7. Arlington, TX 3. Oklahoma City, OK 8. Sacramento, CA 4. Nashville, TN 9. Cleveland, OH 5. Tulsa, OK 10. Mesa, AZ



Atlanta is the most redneck city in the United States, according to a lighthearted study by a real estate blog.





Atlanta, Georgia has been crowned the most redneck city in the United States




Nashville, Tennessee - home to country and western music - is the fourth most redneck city in the United States, according to an unscientific survey




The list's author said any good redneck knows that 'country western music is the only type of music' - and Nashville topped that category with four radio stations devoted to the genre

Like I said it's very tongue in cheek

You can read the article here

Just a bit of a giggle

Wow.

I have to say it truly surprises me that there isn't even a mention of Florida.

And let me just say, as a Floridian, it probably should have been.

That list is stupid, Ive lived in both Ft Worth and Arlington and there is nothing redneck about either place.
Ive also lived in a city in East Texas, now THAT place was as redneck as a place can be.

The study is sort of stupid in my opinion. Rednecks don't reside in "cities". They live in small towns. I would have to go with states in general. First would be West Virginia then Mississippi. Texas is dead last. We are perfect.

I lived a year in Tyler (east texas), and I call that my year of solitary confinement. Those people are (a) devilishly religious and nuts (b) crack meth heads and nuts.

Atlanta is redneck (dubbed Hot Lanta ) ? Hmmm... No, that's never been my experience, .....Love Atlanta,Georgia.. it's very racially diverse. Lots to do.

Outside of Atlanta...maybe....Such as Stone Mountain, they used to have Klan meetings in this beautiful park loooong ago.

So, perhaps, they mean Georgia as a whole....

Hahahaha! Atalanta!! That's so wild!!! I thought for sure my town would have pulled up

I'm in north Mississippi. Now talk about some rednecks...woooooowweeeeeee boy!!
actually, not too many rednecks around here, we are so close to Memphis.

I will say I am three hours from Nashville and thats more like glam country than real rednecks. That's just my opinion. I have a few friends that live in Nashville and I would consider them borderline hippies...

Thanks for the thread its fun

Have a lovely evening!!

Ya know, I usually don't say things like this on ATS, but here goes.

What a stupid, closed minded, apartment dwelling, over privileged, holier than thou writer.

How many Walmarts in the area was part of the criteria because of lawnmowers?!? The gun thing I understand, but lawnmowers??

Absolutely no offense meant to you Cody. I'm very much a redneck, come from a long line of them, I just don't see the humor in her criteria for being rednick-ish.

Having a NASCAR track, such as this one at Fort Worth, Texas, within 30 miles of a city apparently ramps up its redneck status

Like I said I have no idea and would love Rocky's input on this one, it won't happen unfortunately but he'd have fun with this.

And you enjoy your day as well Nat

I lived near Mabank, its about halfway between Dallas and Tyler and I went to HS there and yea, that place was full of meth heads..
The best thing about it was, every girl you meet in these small towns puts out.. I mean every one of them

I laughed my behind off when I saw my city Sacramento, Ca on the list. Sacramento is far from being a redneck type of city compared to many places like Merced that have a good amount of people who love country life styles. In a link from the link the person who said Sacramento was on the list because a picture of a car with the words General Lee and a confederate flag was enough to qualify. Crazy world with crazy people haha.

My apologies if I offended you

And certainly no offence taken on this side

I just read the article and thought it might be fun to post. I kinda wanted the American take on it. It would be like reading something about the UK from a different perspective.

I didn't expect to be so educated by this thread.

Interesting thing for me is, if this is what we get to read, what the hell must you guys think about us

Nothing wrong with being redneck.

LOL This writer is an idiot, that obviously doesn't really know what redneck means. We have plenty right up here, in most of our small towns.

I think I know you're English and to be honest I only know so little about you guys. Take that from someone who loves to learn about different cultures and history. I know many Americans know more about the celebrity of the British royal family and anything relating to pop culture like music, movies, etc. America is a weird country. As George Carlin put it best: "When you're born you get a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you get a front row seat." That in my opinion the perfect way to explain America. It's not evil or perfect. The people are all kinds of crazy in away at times. There are good people out here, but you do have a lot of yahoos.

What about Northern Idaho? Like around Sandpoint? They have an Aryan Nation Camp nearby. This article, Sandpoint: Who We Are, tries to portray Sandpoint as non-racist but I'm not sure it does a very good job lol.


andpoint is not Mark Fuhrman, white separatist Randy Weaver or avowed racist Richard Butler -- the trio who have brought scrutiny upon Sandpoint. As they would be in most any community, these people are flukes in an otherwise calm and beautiful corner of the world. To say that they represent Sandpoint or Idaho is akin to likening a man to Adolph Hitler because he has a mustache.

This can be said unequivocally: Sandpoint and North Idaho are not a "haven for racists," much to the disappointment of some who would have it be so. That includes a national media anxious to report sensationalistic stories. In fact, Richard Butler's so-called Aryan Nations 35 miles south of Sandpoint is in decline, it seems, though to deem them harmless would be a big mistake. Attendance at their rallies has been dropping since 1992, when internal problems and defections began to disrupt leadership. At any one time there is fewer than a dozen skinheads or adherents living at the compound.
