(noun) A Briar is a reference used in southwest Ohio and southeast Indiana to refer to a white person of Kentucky (usually Eastern Kentucky)and sometimes even East Tennessee, Virginia or West Virginia heritage. The term has a certain amount of irony because much of the areas where the term is used are chock-full of Briars. It's the N-word of white folks in parts of the Upper South. If you are a Briar, you may call another Briar a Briar, but if you are not a Briar and call another a Briar, them are fighin' words! "Briar" is especially well known in Dayton Ohio.
Darryll is a real Briar. He lives in Drexel and his ex-wives live in Riverside and Northridge. He has an old El Camino up on blocks outside his house and an ancient upholstered sofa on his front porch. He has three dogs and a chain-link fence around the perimeter of his property and they bark on a regular basis. He has a long extension cord on a portable TV so he can sit on the porch, drink Milwaukee's Best and watch NASCAR. His Momma Darlene lives in East Dayton with her third husband, Larry. Darryll, who is on disability from GM, is living with Kathy Lou, who is divorced from Harold. His ex-wives are Glenda and Brenda. They are twins and Kathy Lou is their cousin. Larry is related to Darryll on Darryll's daddy's side.
