look up any word, like fleek:
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.

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!

Scottish "Covenanters" or Presbyterians who rejected the Catholic and Anglican churches to signify their status as Covenanters adopted wearing red neckerchiefs. They were soon called “red necks.” These same Scots immigrated to the region around Ulster Ireland and finally the new world in the American Colonies. Their descendants inhabited most of the southern and rural places of the United States.
"Angus McDonald has renounced the pope and become a red neck!"

A white person from the south east US who is either rasict, uneducated,poor, or all of the above. It was meant as dergotory but Jeff Foxworthy turned it in to a badge of honor. The word came from confedarte caol miners wearing red bandannas on there necks whil;e they worked NOT FROM A BURNT NECK.
