    Rednecks are white. That makes as much sense as asking if niggers are a race. Or, if kikes are a race.

    The same logic could be applied to, "nigger".

    For racism to end, so does the double standard.

    Is anyone surprised Deuce cannot understand how Redneck is a racial slur? Sometimes, all we need to do is wait for you to post and you pwn yourself.

    I've been called a redneck simply because I live in a small town in the south - I've never uttered a racist comment in my life or harbored a racist thought. . . .and I don't like it just as much as I don't like it when others use the term 'wetback' to describe the supposed 'subculture' of people who came here illegally.

    The truth of the matter is that 'red-neck' like all other racial slurs, is based on race. You might not see it that way but a lot of other people do see it that way and use it as such.
    Regardless. Its a cultural slur, not a racial one.

    OK, no redneckitude, despite the fact that the man on the city council, who wants the mural removed, refers openly to Hispanics as taco flippers, and who complains that diversity is being shoved down the throats of white people. He is also angry that the black kid in the mural is the largest figure.

    Just changed my mind. redneckitude it is.

    You've seen the term frequently used to refer to non-whites? I never have.

    The next time an hispanic, or black person says something stupid are you going to call it, "spickitude"? Or, "niggertude"? I'm betting, uh, no!

    That is not relevant. Cultures often have a racial component.

    Nigger is more equivalent to honkey or cracker as that tends to refer to all white people.

    Show me a few instances of the word redneck not referring to whites, especially southern whites. Thanks in advance.

    When some says redneck, people automatically think, "white". Anyone that says otherwise is a liein' ass.

    I never claimed that it wasn't adpst. I claimed that it did not matter. Please try to understand my argument.
