American who lives in the southern states.
Hobbies include shooting everything that moves, war, drinking large volumes of whiskey, incest, NASCAR, talking about those 'damn yankees', working on the farm with ma and pa, country music and voting republican.
They are deeply religious, generally following the cult of the flag, which researchers have discovered can make rednecks feel 323% more patriotic on sight.
The male of the species is clearly in charge, and discipline is carried out using fists, often after a session of tradtional drinking.
Woman are usaully religious, praising jesus regularly, and have only 2 jobs. Give the man a son and act as a long term punchbag.
Children are identified by the name 'junior' since in 1 family all males have the same name (presumably so its easy to remember).

A class-act citizen; hard working men and women who contribute to society in many ways, much to the chagrin of "society types" and media types. Those groups would rather "bash" these Christian-believers than glorify them. Rednecks may not the the cream of society, but they are the backbone of said society.
Rednecks are lower-class citizens who may not have a high-level education, but they generally have a heart of gold and will do what they can to help their fellow man.

You might be a redneck if..
.........It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, "One nation, under God."
..........You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
..........You still say "Christmas" instead of "Winter Festival."
..........You bow your head when someone prays.
..........You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.
..........You treat Viet Nam vets with great respect, and always have.
..........You've never burned an American flag.
..........You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
..........You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.
.........You'd give your last dollar to a friend.

*Not ever to be confused with the N.A.A.C.P.,the Kue Klux Klan,Republicans,Democrat or any other organazation.

I'm from North Carolina and I'm proud to be a redneck

by CyberKing November 12, 2005
a redneck is not someone who sleeps with family. a redneck is simply someone who is proud to be a south. The world would be a better place if the south would have won. the Yankees would probably have better raisin and more common sence. Yall shouldn't be fags anyhow b/c God made it to where men should be with WOMEN. not with a queer. Rednecks have more common sence than the northerners. They are also friendlier. I bet that if someone's car breaks down, a redneck may help them b/c they have polite and respectful manners. as for the yankees they wouldn't help anyone. I am proud to be in the south, you aint got that much killin unless its animals. AT least we can understand the words to our music. Yall need to know that there is a difference between REDNECKS, KKK, and WEST VIRGINIA. okay.

Someone from the Southern States of America. Fasinated with the KKK and the CSA Civil War flag, and hanging black people. Redneck has become popular now days because country music is starting to sound more and more like pop music. Thanks to "Blue Collar TV" it is "cool" to be a Redneck.
Man Clayton is a true Redneck and Jesse is a damn Yankee who wants to be a Redneck.

The group that makes up about 50% of the population in Owensboro/Daviess Co., Kentucky. The Midwest and the South obviously both mix AND clash here, causing scattered conflicts. The damn people I had to deal with and be harassed by for several consecutive years throughout my middle to high school years. They have given me bad memories and took years off the end of my life. I hate them.
Elsewhere, rednecks seem to exist in various areas of concentrated population, mostly in the middle and deep south, or the Appalachian Mountains. Some parts of the Midwest, like northwestern Kentucky and southern Illinois, are also infested by these people.
The Agricultural Class hallways in high schools are full of Rednecks.
