A hard-working white person or just an unsophisticated white person that possesses one or many of the characteristics and qualities of their counterparts that live in the South.
The differences are:
1.) They talk with Northern/Midwestern accents and don't say y'all as much or they don't say it at all.
2.) Some Northern rednecks (but nowhere near all of them) tend to be more racist than southern rednecks.
3.) Don't engage in "redneck sports" like muddin' and hog calling, unless it's in the lower regions of the North, such as southern Indiana or northern/northwestern Kentucky. Northern Rednecks have their own sports like snow mobile riding, hubcap discus throwing (but that also exists in some parts in the South), and ice fishing.
4.) Though also a stereotype as with all rednecks or anyone else that doesn't support Kerry or ultra-liberal ideas, most (but not all) of Northern rednecks are Republicans and/or strong Bush-supporters. Also, they are also very patriotic about their nation and their soldiers. That is NOT a bad thing at all.
In short, Northern rednecks are good and awesome people in my opinion.
I am a local of northern Kentucky with Indiana and Michigan influence (family, local music of that area, etc.) I have a nasal "twang" accent of Indiana and the Upper Midwest. Also, I am a loyal Bush Supporter and a devout Republican. Therefore, I am a Northern Redneck.
