In the 1630s, during the crises that culminated in the English Civil War,
the Presbyterians of Scotland dissented from both the mainstream Anglican
view, as well as that of the rising "Puritans." In their view, the
Anglicans were "Catholics-minus-the-Pope," while the Puritans were
half-crazed utopian dim-wits who wanted to create a "shining city on the
hill" so that they could rule the City. In declarations issued in 1638 and
1641, these Lowland Scots issued so-called "Covenants," whereby they
declared that they would not accept the Anglican form of Church govt (headed
by the King), but would also not accept the Puritans' theological/political
view. "Covenanters" signed their oaths in their own blood, and many wore
red pieces of cloth or stiff, red collars to signify their identity as dissenters (thus "Red-Necks"). After the English Civil War, and then again after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, these Scots were forced to emigrate to America, and they largely settled in the South. By the time of the AMERICAN Civil War, the term was used to describe white Southerners of all theological stripes. Interestingly, most of the English-surnamed people of the NORTH were descended from PURITANS!

Rednecks are usually from small towns from the southern United States and the Midwest. A redneck does have to be a white person, but redneck are more often than not, white. A redneck can drive any kind of vehicle and they defend their favorite car manufacturer when talking. Many rednecks are conservatites and protestant or non-denominational Christians. A redneck does not have to be poor, in fact many are wealthy and successful, usually by owning their own business. A redneck usually enjoys simple things anything with wheels (usually trucks and sometimes big SUVs), hunting, fishing, mudding, and shooting guns. A redneck does not have to listen to country music all the time. I consider myself to be a redneck, but a redneck can also like things that no would expect he or she to like. I actually like metalcore, classic rock, punk, power pop/punk, rap, and southern rock, etc more than country music. Also, some rednecks have recieved a college education and as for me, I am going to have a college diploma in almost a year from now. Being a redneck has a lot to with interests and enjoying the simple things. I have a Ford Ranger pickup and I love that truck to death eventhough I messed the paint while trying to do body work. Also, many rednecks know to use the internet. Rednecks and way different than white trash and hick mean. These terms mean something horrible implying that such people are lazy, racist, and ignorant. Rednecks are not racist, but I consider racist white people white trash and I consider hicks to be severely misinformed people who share the same interests as rednecks. And yes, rednecks are not correctly defined and many of us have an open mind, but we also must remain faithful to our values. Every must hold true to what they believe is right, if we don't then we are being fake. I am a redneck but I will not brag about it because my identity is not a big deal. What I consider to be a big deal is keep our individuality and follow whatever religion we choose without fear on censorship. I am a Christian, but I think other religions should not be blocked because we would be hypocrites not to accept other beliefs.
If you have a four wheel drive truck with stickers on the back window, a Skynyrd cd in the cd player, dip or used to dip, fishing, and hunting, then all of a sudden people say you are a redneck. I say whatever because you might be missing out on a fun lifestyle that is pretty laid back.
