the REAL origin of the term "redneck" derives from the WVA, Kentucky coal-mining communities where union labor was not only frowned upon, but members were openly beaten, shot at, and kept from working...so the union began distributing red bandanas for the miners to wear to show that they were union supporters...so "rednecks" was both a derogatory (from the ownership side) and a badge of honor (from the miners side)...and seeing as how a third of the miners were African-American (they too were called rednecks)...it has nothing to do with being outside and getting sunburned...and what's even more funny is when trying to explain to a young black youth that if he were mining coal in that region in the early 20th century, he too would be called a redneck...
those redneck boys are going on strike again...

If any of these describe you, you're a redneck!

Your mother doesn't remove the Marlboro from her lips before telling the State Trooper to kiss her ass.

The primary color of your car is "bondo".

You honestly think that women are turned on by animal noises and seductive tongue gestures.

Your brother-in-law is your uncle.

You've ever financed a tattoo.

You go to your family reunion to meet women.

Your idea of a 7 course meal is a bucket of KFC and a six-pack.

You go to a Tupperware party for a haircut.

You have spray painted your girlfriend's name on an overpass.

You have more than two brothers named Bubba or Junior.
This is very true about rednecks. !! l0l

The reason so many people are embarassed to be white. The white equivalent of "niggas" as in Chris Rock's bit "Black People vs Niggas"; there's white people, and then there's rednecks, and rednecks have got to go.
While it's true not all douchebags are rednecks, all rednecks are douchebags.
