The problem is people take the term redneck and use it interchangeably with white trash, which is wrong.
Also people from the northeast have no room to talk when it comes to white trash.
That's twice I've had to agree with you.
What's the difference?
Redneck to me is "country folk" .. Country folk does not mean white trash any more than city folk means white trash.
Yeah that's kind of how I always interpreted it - redneck as just "good ole boy" type, as opposed to white trash which is debased, cracked out honey boo boo style.
Asking because i just looked up the definition of redneck... It also means poor and uneducated, apparently

Redneck is a person that works hard for a living probably drives a truck and likes hunting.
White trash is more like a person that has a criminal background and three kids before they're 20 and shitty morals (Honey Boo Boo's family).
Eh wiki is wrong on this one, IMO.
Yeah but country folk is way too broad. It's a particular type of country folk imo
The entire side of my mother's family own farms in rural Idaho and Montana. They are definitely not rednecks.
I guess I can agree with that. It is definitely a certain mentality.
Regardless, I'd much rather be my redneck self than anything else, so I still don't see the issue with it.
Cajuns and Rednecks are totally different. If you've been to South Louisiana for any amount of time, you would know this.
Now, northern Louisiana, Monroe and Shreveport, are Rednecks.. South Louisiana, Lake Charles, Lafayette and New Orleans are Cajuns. Trust me, there's a difference.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
In truth I'd probably be a lot happier with a truck, gun rack and a dog named blue than being my city prick self.
Cajuns are definitely their own breed. Went to a cochon de lait deep, deep out on the "bai" a few years ago. I barely understood half the shit people were saying to me. Great food, great people tho.
Hillbillies also not rednecks
Rednecks are more likely to be in your face about what they believe. If they hunt, drive a truck, fly the rebel flag, and hate city slickers they'll tell you.
western Michigan and Ohio would beg to differ.
Southern = refined, courtly, genteel
Redneck = ignorant, uncouth, trash [sub-species of trash]
Southerners hunt bucks.
Rednecks poach does. At night.
Southerners revere their ancestors.
Rednecks fvck their cousins.
There are redneck/hill billy/white trash/ghetto clowns in every nook and cranny of this fine country.
What's the difference between a redneck and a hick? I assumed rednecks lived in the south, while the northern equivalents are called hicks.
Many Northerners assume people who live in trailer parks are all rednecks. Serious question; what percentage of the state of Alabama would you guess lives in mobile homes? I say Alabama, because people generally think Alabama or Mississippi when the topic is rednecks. They also think most of the people in those two states live in trailer parks. Not that there's anything wrong with trailer parks...
That's what I've always thought about the north south terms.
Also my uncle lives in a trailer...but he also has a corvette and a 2010 silverado so he's not poor his wife and he just don't want a big house. His park isn't completely sketchy but there are still a few weirdos in there.
Lol.. Such a crock of crap.
No offense but your uncle wasted his money on cars and trucks that cost more than the trailer bc he can't manage his money, hence him living in a Trailer.. And his wife doesn't want a big house? Do you seriously believe that?
Sorry man, I like you but I call BS.
I know it sounds ridiculous but he lived in a trailer before he had those things plus he only had one child instead of two like my mom and two other uncles. Plus he just retired and now he drives cars to and from chevrolet dealerships around here. So yeah he has a very small house payment and a lot of money to spend on toys. They had 25 ft trailer camper that they just sold also.
