Non-churchgoing unsophisticated populists with closeminded rural values.

No one (in their right mind) would ever call you a redneck. :frust::grumble:
Basically you are saying a redneck is a southern hick? are you familiar with that word SAM? (i want to see how adept you are at American slang)
I think hicks are more traditional and/or religious, although they may be as socially conservative.
So you have heard the term before?
Neither redneck or hick has anything to do with religion though. I think redneck is reserved for southern U.S and hicks can be from any small town.
Mediocre people, not who's a hick or a redneck.
I think that would be a good thread for linguistics.
There are many equivalent terms for both rednecks and hicks; IMO, hicks refers to simple but direct rural folk, while redneck refers to unsophisticated populists. Rednecks need not be from the south or from a rural area; they are just impervious to liberalisation of education and modernisation
So are rednecks and hicks not considered mediocre?:shrug:
How many hicks and rednecks do you think there are in NY, LA, Chicago, Portland, etc?
Depends, isn't there one in DC?Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

Well TBH, Orleander is closer to the definitionPlease Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Orleander is one of the most intelligent and liberal women on this forum.
yeah, I'm not a true redneck, but I'm probably closer to it than shorty. I've been hunting
But I definitely know I'm NOT mediocre.
Redneck does not mean stupid at all. I kind of admire rednecks but they dont, by nature care much for me. It is like, as an example, if S.A.M were to venture away from her home in India and suddenly walk up to another tribe\sect. Well actually being a woman she would have better luck, same for rednecks.
You have no idea what we are saying do you?:shrug:
Just for clarification; I did not say rednecks are stupid.
Apparently there are Canadian rednecks too
Actually you don't SAM.....If told anybody that I was called a redneck they would :roflmao:
I don't think you have any idea what a redneck is.
Redneck, in modern usage, predominantly refers to a particular stereotype of white people who may be found in many regions of the United States. Originally limited to the Appalachians, and later the Ozarks and Rocky Mountains, this stereotype is now widespread in northern states. The word can be used either as a pejorative or as a matter of pride. The blunt definition of the stereotype describes one who lives in a rural American area, is poor, and sometimes would own a pickup truck and would have an apparel of a cowboy and a southern accent.
