Coonass and Cajun are the same,wiki

Cajuns have names like Boudreaux and speak Acadian at home. Coonass is a larger category that embraces both Acadian and non-Acadian bayou people.

You have to live there a bit. Wiki isn't going to pick up the fine nuances. If the Robertsons were Cajun, they'd have to subtitle or translate the whole thing. Shelby Stanga is a Cajun.

eta: and Creole is yet a third distinct category that is neither Cajun nor coonass. But you'll find web resources that say they are the same.

I know my uncle has his roots in redneck rural America and helped start a silicon valley company that made him his first million. He retired early, but decided he wasn't done and now works for Apple.

My cousin is about as redneck as they get, but that doesn't stop him from being a very prosperous person who has no trouble mixing with anyone at all. He never met a stranger although he does not play golf.

Heck, I'm only a generation off the farm and the third generation in my family to be college educated.

I'm not sure what your perception of Heartland America is, but it is far from all backwoods farmboys, rednecks and hillbillies fresh from the holler.

But please, continue your discussion. I have to go and sharpen my bowie knife and make some more flintlock musket rounds. The injuns are gettin' mighty restless out in them thar hills!

A thread topic on MSNBC openly talking about how to shut down something legal, and we're arguing about the definition of "redneck"?

Somehow, somewhere, the narrative got changed.

Just read Wiki to see what it says...


Trust me, the people in Louisiana DO NOT consider either a slur at all !!!

We work in LA, and these folks are proud of their heritage/culture

I will say North LA is not as influenced by the lingo as central to south LA
Yeah, they still eat hot food but their Cajun accent is not as strong.
You can actually understand them....

Around Lafayette/Opelousas and south, strong Cajun accent
Lake Charles [west La on Texas border], no as strong lingo
Slidell [East on MS. border], not as strong lingo

And they are some of the friendliest people we've ever met!!!
Oh, did I mention they love to party?!?!
Yeah, they know how to have a good time
