Do you choose to be a redneck or are you just born that way?

...Dude. If you're getting at that ALL Southern people are like that, we're not. Not all of us are like that. I don't "TAWK LYKE THEEUS" or hunt or fish or eat game or any of those things. I'm not racist and I don't hate gays. I don't wear camouflage. I don't want a truck. Stop stereotyping people. Jeez.


Don't get offended, it's obviously just a joke (though people like this do exist). People who grew up around others, like their parents, who act like this, will probably act like this, too (until they realize they are a living stereotype).

Upbringing.

I like honey boo boo though, she stands up for gay rights. So she's cool in my book .

I'm from Texas, and I ain't no redneck. My mom's boyfriend is the closest thing to redneck I've actually interacted with, but he's far too intelligent, even if he acts like he's not as some sort of charm, and outspokenly loud in a liberal way. He's basically country. Both my parents are from the northish, MI and NYC respectively, so i haven't adapted a lot of redneck tendencies over the years because my upbringing has not been at all "southwestern" per se, even if I live in Texas, I don't to a stranger seem like I've lived here my entire life.

I'm from Texas. I am not a redneck. I don't even own a gun. Though my boss is a pretty big redneck. He's quite proud of it too. And there's nothing necessarily wrong with being one.

I went through a redneck phase in high school, mostly cause that's the clique I fit in with socioeconomically. predisposition though? No. It's just that some don't have other options.

I live in north Carolina. I see/have to interact with those people every day. I really think your born in it

There's really a difference between a redneck and a southern person. Like I wouldn't call jeff Foxworthy and actual redneck.
I hate "rednecks" tbh.. I think its funny they hate their counterparts "ghetto blacks" cause they're basically the same thing..ignorant simple minded/simple motivated people

Here's an example example of the last thing I said..
"look at my big jacked up truck Bo!"

On the flip side

"Look at my tacky ass rims niggah!"

They're both dumb as fuck

Who are you calling a kid? I'll admit I snapped a little, but I get sick and tired of hearing the south disparaged by people who never been to the south. But I never made it personal. Also you will, hopefully, notice that I did give what I hope was a factually interesting tidbit and observation on how southern accents are no more the same as all northern accents are the same. And I don't know how to take your last. If I was criminally trespassing on your property I'd expect you to defend yourself. As for dogs I never owned a vicious one ever. At worse they would probably lick you to death.

If you are consider yourself a union man/woman than you are a redneck. Rednecks aren't southern gun owning hunters like people believe they are. Look into the past of rednecks if you want to see how rednecks came to be.

That depends on what part of the country you are in. Rednecks in the south (mostly) are very anti union due to a massive push by mill companies to keep unionization out of the South. Northern rednecks and I would assume midwest to Northern Midwest rednecks would be rather pro-union. Especially in states like South Carolina and Georgia, the anti-union sentiment got particularly violent, to the point that there were a number of protesters killed during rallies to break them up. At the time, it wasn't publicized because the mills had the news paper companies in their pocket so word never got out like it did in the north, killing unionization. Eventually after enough generations passed, it became ingrained in Southern thought that unions were bad and that the corporations were smart enough to make the right calls on labor themselves. To this day, its grounds for firing to even discuss unionization in most southern work places.

I'm pretty sure they're born that way, but then again, I'm from New Jersey, so I wouldn't know.

No warning shots first?


Do you guys have metric people that checks your electricity meter? You know that those electric meters are always placed at the back of the house.
