A culture centered in the deep south and midwest made up of people who enjoy the simple pleasures of life, such as drinking, farting, and nascar.

Rednecks are blue collar workers who are not afraid of hard work or getting their hands dirty! we are the type of people who would give you the shirt off their back if needed even if that's all they had. We are proud of who we are and where we come from. We are friendly people who will wave when you pass by know you are not. We have faith in our god even when times are tuff. We know how to enjoy the simple life and what god gave us. When we look at the stars we see the beauty in them others can't see them at all! We can survive through anything when other people wouldn't know where to begin. Believe it or not most of us have our teeth, not so dumb and have nice homes. I have a four bedroom brick ranch style home wich i am very proud of and have earned every bit. We are not all racist seems to be others that are and just want to put it off on the rednecks of the world!! There are racist in all walks of life not just ours. We also feed the world or have you forgot? You do like to eat right? Rednecks is not another word for trash that exsist in all races. I would count on a redneck anyday!! People who don't see things this way look up the word RACIST!!!!
They call him a redneck but he is just a good ole boy

Okay, lets get something straight, theres a difference between a REDNECK and WHITE TRASH.

White Trash are people who...

1. are racist bigots who think acting intolerant and obnoxious makes them look good but doesnt

2. live in trailer parks with a rusty ass truck or old car
3. are general assholes who bang their cousins and are hated by most of the public

Rednecks and/or hicks and/or Good Ol' Boys are...
1. Generally kind, good people who just enjoy the little things in life which money cant give them(family, friends, etc.)
2. Like to work hard for what they have but are also known to play even harder than they work.
3. Live in a rural area NOT because they dont like the city but because they love the outdoors and the peace that comes with being out away from all the hustle and confusion of a big city.

4. Someone who is definitely not afraid to fight and stand up for what he believes in(especially if it envolves a woman) but at the same time knows how to treat people right.

Generally, they are compassionate, good-natured, hardworking, fun-loving people who just want to do what they want and dont mind working to get what they want.
Rednecks are usually nice to ALL people until they are given a reason not to be. Just get to know them and you will find they are good friends to have.

2.)If you've ever stared at a carton on milk juice because it says concentrate...
3.)If you use the back of your pick-up truck as a swimming pool...

Rednecks are usually from small towns from the southern United States and the Midwest. A redneck does have to be a white person, but redneck are more often than not, white. A redneck can drive any kind of vehicle and they defend their favorite car manufacturer when talking. Many rednecks are conservatites and protestant or non-denominational Christians. A redneck does not have to be poor, in fact many are wealthy and successful, usually by owning their own business. A redneck usually enjoys simple things anything with wheels (usually trucks and sometimes big SUVs), hunting, fishing, mudding, and shooting guns. A redneck does not have to listen to country music all the time. I consider myself to be a redneck, but a redneck can also like things that no would expect he or she to like. I actually like metalcore, classic rock, punk, power pop/punk, rap, and southern rock, etc more than country music. Also, some rednecks have recieved a college education and as for me, I am going to have a college diploma in almost a year from now. Being a redneck has a lot to with interests and enjoying the simple things. I have a Ford Ranger pickup and I love that truck to death eventhough I messed the paint while trying to do body work. Also, many rednecks know to use the internet. Rednecks and way different than white trash and hick mean. These terms mean something horrible implying that such people are lazy, racist, and ignorant. Rednecks are not racist, but I consider racist white people white trash and I consider hicks to be severely misinformed people who share the same interests as rednecks. And yes, rednecks are not correctly defined and many of us have an open mind, but we also must remain faithful to our values. Every must hold true to what they believe is right, if we don't then we are being fake. I am a redneck but I will not brag about it because my identity is not a big deal. What I consider to be a big deal is keep our individuality and follow whatever religion we choose without fear on censorship. I am a Christian, but I think other religions should not be blocked because we would be hypocrites not to accept other beliefs.
If you have a four wheel drive truck with stickers on the back window, a Skynyrd cd in the cd player, dip or used to dip, fishing, and hunting, then all of a sudden people say you are a redneck. I say whatever because you might be missing out on a fun lifestyle that is pretty laid back.

A person does not have to be a Southerner to be a Redneck. A Redneck is typically classified as a hardworking man or woman, who has made a living either farming, doing landscape work, or other jobs that require the person to be outside throughout the extremes in weather. This is the normal cause for the tell tale "red neck".

It has been found that many Northerners look down upon the redneck, even though the great majority of manual labor is done by the redneck. You certainly would not see a business man working outside in the hot sun doing extensive farming to feed his family.

In a sense, America must thank the Redneck for all the difficult labor they have done to keep America the greatest country in the world.

The fact of the matter is, not all rednecks have sex with they're sister, love nascar, love hunting, love fishing, or love beer. They are the backbone of this great nation.

For that alone, the Redneck should be applauded, instead of put down and denigrated.
They are some of the nicest people I know...
