American person of the white race that generally comes from a rural background (though not always) who is non-college educated (or acts like it) and deeply resents any person from any group that is not his or her own. Tends to enjoy racism, four-wheel drive pickup trucks, guns, flag-waving, and ultra right-wing politics. A Redneck may also belong to an ultra-conservative Christian sect (non-drinking Redneck type)or white racist group. Rednecks almost always work in manual labor and tend to frequent Wal-Mart, Bass Pro Shops, fundamentalist Christian churches, and small-town taverns.

A redneck is a country bumpkin who lives in flatter areas of the US like the Great Plains and coastal plains while hillbillies are people living in more hilly and/or mountainous areas. Rednecks and hillbillies aren't only found in the South, they are also found in the Northeast, Midwest, and West Coast too. In fact, Vermont which is a Northeastern state is made entirely of rednecks and hillbillies.
Rednecks are hard working people that are only made fun of by stupid nerds that sit on their computers and jack off to anime porn.

One who believies in living the "simple life". Often confused with hick or white trash, rednecks tend to stay towards the civilized part of life. I know this this because I have been born and raised as such.
I'm a redneck, and I like it simple.
