Stereotype definition: A white person living in the south or midwest that dislikes minorities, enjoys nascar, hunting and sleeps with family members.

True Definition: A simple person living in a rural area, usually in the south or midwest who is hard working, hence the name redneck from being out in the fields working
I am from the North, New Jersey but I still know that most of the people in the south aren't like the stereotpe definition. A redneck is just a simple hardworking person, the other stuff is just stereotyping.

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...

You don't have to live in the South of the US to be one, you don't even have to live in the US at all for that matter, you can be a redneck anywhere on this world, f.i. in Holland, as long as you live in a rather rural area, collect licence-plates, like cheap beer and want a Chevy Blazer, if you like at least some country-music and if you aren't too rich, you have all right to call yourself a dutch redneck, which we do...;-) An US-redneck-friend of mine will even send me a confederative flag, LOL.

Being a redneck is not necessary a bad thing, though it's used as an offensive word.
My dad calls us "island-rednecks", as we live on a remote island, but I never found out, if this is a compliment or an assault.
Proud to be a dutch redneck!
