The idea that redneck originated from laborers and farmers who had sun burnt or red necks is a myth. The term actually originated during the mining wars in the 1920's. The union miners and non-union miners were fighting because union workers were losing there jobs because during this time joining a worker's union was thought to be communist and could be considered treason. When the union and non-union workers fought the non-union workers wore white arm bands and the union workers wore red bandanas around their necks. The slang term for a union worker then became "redneck" but now the meaning has turned into a derogitory and ignorant term.
The rednecks fought to their death for their jobs.

A person, usually from the south and caucasion, who is not ashamed of their heritage, has faith in God, hunts, fishes (can provide food and not have to be on welfare to do it). Down home, true, not fake and can spell unlike some people who submit!
