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.

Redneck is a lifestyle. not all rednecks are from the south, a redneck can be anywhere thats rural.not all rednecks live in trailor parks. most rednecks are literate and dont have sex with their family memebers. besides half of the royal family in th 1800s had diseases from incest. redneck should be defined as a glorious absence of sophistication. and yes i know wut redneck is because i am from alabama and i would consider myself a redneck but i can read, im not fat, i dont have sex with my cousins, and im not in the kkk.

I've realized what a redneck is. It seems to be almost everyone who is either of not the upmost cultural and economic standing, or someone who lacks sophistication and tends to be rather simple, yet they work hard at the same time and stand up for what they believe in. In that case, almost all of us, including myself are rednecks from time to time. Midwestrn Soldier and myself would like to apoligize for being so hard on you all.
I'm a redneck myself from time to time.

A hard working person from the Southeastern united states, mostly Alabama, Georgia, and parts of northern Florida. (usually refers to a male, but includes many women as well)

While the term is thought to be some-what of an insult, rednecks actually are proud of who they are, and take it as a compliment.

Usually thought to be stupid and classless, these men and women are actually some of the most intelligent and polite people in the world.

They live simple lives on modest incomes, and are very comfortable with who they are. A true redneck will never think about how another person will react to his or her actions. Rednecks like to laugh and have a good time, and are often very opinionated.

Rednecks are the nicest people you will ever meet. They'll cuss you out, and then literally give you the shirt on their back if you need it.

Redneck children learn from an early age to be respectful to their elders. Most are required to say "ma'am" and "sir" when speaking to an adult at all times.

Favorite activities among rednecks include fishing and hunting, among other various things to pass the time, such as watermelon seed spittin' contests.
When my family took a trip up north, I just KNEW everyone was thinking, "there goes a bunch of rednecks!"

Okay, lets get something straight, theres a difference between a REDNECK and WHITE TRASH.

White Trash are people who...

1. are racist bigots who think acting intolerant and obnoxious makes them look good but doesnt

2. live in trailer parks with a rusty ass truck or old car
3. are general assholes who bang their cousins and are hated by most of the public

Rednecks and/or hicks and/or Good Ol' Boys are...
1. Generally kind, good people who just enjoy the little things in life which money cant give them(family, friends, etc.)
2. Like to work hard for what they have but are also known to play even harder than they work.
3. Live in a rural area NOT because they dont like the city but because they love the outdoors and the peace that comes with being out away from all the hustle and confusion of a big city.

4. Someone who is definitely not afraid to fight and stand up for what he believes in(especially if it envolves a woman) but at the same time knows how to treat people right.

Generally, they are compassionate, good-natured, hardworking, fun-loving people who just want to do what they want and dont mind working to get what they want.
Rednecks are usually nice to ALL people until they are given a reason not to be. Just get to know them and you will find they are good friends to have.
