Myron confirmed as another GW Groupie.
Problem here is.. the term redneck is loosely based on unknown facts and stereotyping. Just because someone has a southern accent doesn't label them a redneck as many here tend to think so and around the world. People can't choose where they'll be born or how they're raised but a southern accent is just that, an accent. The same is said about northerners, in which most call them yankee. I for one, don't say yankee, I just say northerner. One of my closest friends is from Wisconsin, believe me, him and I joked with each other over the years. His accent versus mine, things of that nature. No matter where we came from, we both enjoyed the same things.
So because someone wants to fly a confederate flag, kick their camoflauge hat up, chew tobacco, live in trailers doesn't mean they're a redneck, just another person believing in something different than yourselves and making the most with what they have. Don't be so quick to judge others, though I agree that there are a lot of younger kids and teens out there that try and act more southern by developing a strong accent or wearing camo or using rebel flags to make them seem more devoted to the south becaue down here, a lot of the women like a good country boy but when in actuality, they have no idea or know what they're doing.
My high school here are the Rebels, so you can imagine the amount of flags you see flying on trucks and cars around here but we don't point fingers and say 'Look, a redneck!', just a student with school pride or trying to be 'cool'.
