-Doesn't always wear shoes
-Are lucky to have a computer
-Might be seen chewing on a hay straw

-Doesn't live in trailer parks like rednecks; quite a few live in suburban houses, but most live in the southern foothills, Appalachia, and vast farmlands throughout the Midwest.

-Are usually more hospitable, especially in the mountains of the South, or the massed farms of the Midwest.
-Aren't always as violent as rednecks.
I went down to eastern Tennessee and saw a bunch of hillbilly-ish people, but they were all nice to me, and they were all wearing shoes. I heard some talking about how stupid the KKK was...

Derogatory term for a someone from the country. Somewhere between a bumpkin an a redneck, though they tend to get wrongly lumped in either category. Unlike bumpkins, they are aware of the world beyond their rural setting, and probably have lived briefly in the city before returning to the quieter life they prefer. Unlike rednecks, they are generally educated, nice people who don't chastise non-religious people and aren't racist.

Me: I'd say he's more of a hick.
Loser: What's the difference?
Me: Yo momma.
