I live in Florida, which sadly counts as part of the "deep south", which means you have your rednecks. Most of the rednecks that go to school with me are basically near-perfect expys of white trash. They dress in camouflage all the time (even when they're not hunting), drive pickup trucks with huge CB antennae and ten-foot lift kits, and praise the former Confederate States of America by flying what they claim to be the "National Confederate flag" (joke's on them, it's actually their battle flag) and blaring autotuned country crap like it's going out of style.

 

If you guys need a pictoral reference, take this dude who goes to my school (pictured below, but his identity is concealed). Some silly, short dude who obsesses over hunting, comes from a rich family, and fakes a southern drawl. It reminded me of those white faux gangsters you see, only instead of trying to act like gangbangers, they act like trailer trash.

So yeah, are rednecks a problem where you live? And if so, do you think they're legit "country boys", or are they regular rich kids trying to act all Duck Dynasty and stuff.

Lol the "comes from a rich family" part cannot be anymore true of todays modern "redneck". Middle or Upper middle class lives in the suburbs. And drives a nice mew pickup truck that his daddy bought him for his birthday. And has some kind of identity crisis and belives he is a country boy for some reason and puts on a southern drawl no one else in his family has. And is hunting obsessed even though he lives in the city and his dad owns a construction company or something and never takes him hunting

I can't walk 100 meters without some gap-toothed, slack-jawed, denim overalls wearing person telling me to drop my drawers and squeal like a pig.

 

I'd say it's a pretty big problem, yes.

I'm in Arkansas, so yes. You described them spot on.

 

They drive jacked up early-90s Silverados with HIDs, wear Mossy Oak camo jackets, and chew tobacco. Just for reference, they drive lifted trucks to over-compensate for other things. Duck Dynasty really fueled that sh*t here, especially considering that a lot of the cast hang around the area. What's funny is that most of these "rednecks" live in the suburbs or semi-populated areas of the city.

It's hilarious seeing as one of the "rednecks" here has a dad who owns a road paving company. I'm also not too sure why the brag about hunting in Florida when there isn't much to hunt, and what animals you'd expect to be hunted here, they have in wildlife preserves. Wouldn't fishing make sense then?

My condolences go to you.

When you see a suburban redneck the odds are that his dad owns some kind of blue collar business. Like construction, road paving, plumbing etc. Because it leads to a massive identity crisi in the kids. Because they grow up around their fathers employees and their children but it isnt the same. While daddys employees' s son timmy lives in a trailer and his dad drives a sh*tty old pick up truck and brings home $17.50 an hour with crappy benefits. I live in a 5500 square foot 6 bedroom house with an indoor pool and my family has 5 cars and spend the winters in the Bahamas. But we are still cool blue collar guys right? And they soend the rest of their life trying to prove they are "one of the guys"

Not where I live(Alabama) . Only time you see rednecks is when you are in the backwoods and rural towns.

It might be some identity crisis. After all, you see white kids trying to act like ghetto gangbangers, you see rich kids trying to act all white trash. And whenever I call them white trash, they take offense, even though that's what they want to be!

I mean look at this. They're dressed like they're gonna go shoot some deers, but they're at some formal ass dinner-looking thing. Damn.

Not really, I'm a yank from the north. Go south maybe 100-200 miles though, and then you'll start to see Confederate flags.

 

Actually, now that I think about it, I know people who glorify the redneck culture, i.e. my own sister. She claims to like pick up trucks even though she knows nothing about cars, she likes to wear camo and even said she wants to wear a camoflauge dress to prom, she likes mudding and drinking, and she's going to West Virginia for college, part of the reason being the "cute cowboys". She doesn't understand that they aren't cowboys like out west, they are two-toothed hicks with broken testicles in the Appalachians. My neighbor is also considered to be a redneck, but he's cool about it, so I don't mind one bit.

These asshats aren't real rednecks, you shouldn't consider it.

 

This is what I consider real rednecks, even if its a TV show

No, it's not a problem because red necks make up 99.8 percent of the population for about a 300 mile radius.

I live in Northern Indiana, so yeah. There's a whole group of rednecks that basically 'run' the school. They're the varsity athletes, all the girls like them, but man, they're dumb as sh*t. I know this sounds stereotypical, but it's true. My school's a rural school and all of the students live in one of the five surrounding towns or out in the middle of nowhere. There's always a group of them driving down the road in their diesel pickup trucks with huge stacks  that leave an enormous trail of smoke. I live on a farm, but I chose not to be a part of that group.

I live in a big city in Central Florida, which has some of the culture of the deep south, except it's isolated enough from the rest of it to sort of be its own thing (kinda like I imagine north Missouri and south Ohio are like) which means you have rednecks here and there. Most of the rednecks that I go to school with are pretty cool guys, they joke around and have their fun, and they're a nice break from a lot of the other students who are always concerned with how other people compose themselves and what drugs they're gonna be doing after school today. Since we have uniforms at our school they don't dress the part when I see them, but a few wear baseball caps and heavy camo coats on days they'd be appropriate. I've seen maybe three confederate flags, but when they do fly them it's not about race or anything; probably just to identify with a larger group of people, to feel like they're part of something I guess. I did the same thing when I bought a studded bracelet a few years ago.

 

They get a lot of sh*t from other students for being rednecks, but I don't see anything wrong with them. They're not overtly racist, sexist, or homophobic (one even defended gay marriage), and they mostly keep the country music and muddin' to themselves. Of course I'm not saying all rednecks aren't pieces of sh*t, just the ones I know.

Which part of Central Florida are you from? I'm from Ormond, so that's kinda Central Florida.

We have rednecks in New York, too. Upstate mostly, but we've got some on the island as well. They're not Confederate Flag waving rednecks though.

A few miles south of Orlando.

 

Ya know those guys in that second picture look a lot like the ones I know, and it'd be really weird if it turns out that our area's rednecks happened to be related or something.

Nope, not since I lived in the south. In South Carolina and Tennessee, there are lots of black 'rednecks' as well. Yes, even the Confederate flag waving variety. When I lived in Floriduh I mostly ran into crackheads and eighty year old gay men.
