    That is the difference between using the term redneck and the n-word.
    So then your claim is that only white people can be racist?

    Blacks cannot be? Can Asians?

    Ma'am, may I introduce you to a black redneck:

    Do you think black people were the only group of people that were ever slaves?

There are TV shows that thrive off redneck culture. Find me a single black comedian who could do that with nigger and get away with it. When's A&E gonna start shows about called Ghetto Dynasty? Lol. It'll center around the Thompson family. We'll follow Jermaine as he walks through the ghettos in Chicago, sells weed for the Vice Lords and then comes home to make koolaid & ketchup spaghetti.
    And blacks can call themselves the N word...and rappers and comedians manage to make very nice livings including when they entertain.

    Are you reading what is being said? Again, call me when they've made a living out of being ghetto and not just pretending to be. Where are the reality shows in the ghetto? They're usually called documentaries. Where are the TV Guides for Shan'iqua? They have them with Honey Boo Boo. Why not Shani'qua? Again, rednecks are a subculture. Just like hoodrats.

    If you have a home that is mobile, and 5 cadillacs that aren't, you might be a black redneck.

    No? Fine. I'll see myself out.

    And I've definitely heard it refer to people with $$....it's more an attitude and lifestyle (which doesnt mean poor).

    The way you are trying to justify it by saying it's just for white Southern farmers is exactly the way that people try to justify the N word by saying it only applies to a specific 'group' of blacks.
    The original redneck or the term use to apply to a poor white dirt farmer. Redneck characterized farmers having a red neck caused by sunburn from hours working in the fields. A 1893 definition was poorer inhabitants of the rural districts.

    By 1900 rednecks was in common use to designate a political factions inside the Democratic Party comprising poor white farmers in the South.

    By the 1970's the term redneck had turned into an offensive slang meaning bigoted, loutish and opposed to modern ways. It became a term to attack southern white conservatives.

    But since then Jeff Foxworthy came on the scenes with his redneck jokes and most southerners are once again proud to wear the mantle of redneck. Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy are redneck icons down here.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
