    I agree that political correctness has reached a ridiculous point but I don't think it's correct or reasonable to put white racism on an equal level as racism by minorities.
    Not specifically redneck is also used to describe racist whites in the western US and Canada. Who are not associated with the inbred hicks of the Southern US

    People use words differently, so this argument isn't going to be very productive. I personally think that this discussion is completely irrelevant and that it's just as hateful as if it is racism, so it doesn't really matter.

    Yes every redneck would be white as redneck describes a cultural subgroup of whites, not all whites. That is an important difference

    So, you would be ok with calling racist hispanics, "spicks?

    Do us a favor and don't try to imply that racism is exclusive to white southerners.

    I am not trying to say that only white people can be racist, you are reading into my comments. Also, in general usage, spicks is used to refer to all hispanics, not a cultural subset. I think my La Raza example works better as there is an element of racism in that subgroup.

    Now it's, "hicks"...! ALong with the assumption that white southerners are all inbred.

    This keeps getting better and better.

    This from the diversity loving, all tolerating Leftists.

    Just wow!!!

    You said that, "rednecks", are white, southern, rural poor and racist; as if there's no way they can't be racist. I'm not reading anything into your statements.

    "high yeller", isn't used to refer to all blacks, just a subset. Obama's a high yeller. You cool with me referring to him as a high yeller?

    The reading in was the assumption that I was stating that only white people can be racist. I do not think this is true. I have been on the receiving end of racism myself before and was almost physically assaulted for being white.

    And not its not racist. Its culturally bigoted, yes, but not racist. I have no problem with culturally bigoted though because I clearly believe that some cultures are better than others. And I think that culture is an inferior one.

    As for the high yeller case, what other features does this term encompass?

    So it's okay then for me to refer to gang banging, illiterate, drug running young black males as Niggers is OKAY, because they are just a "cultural Subgroup" of Blacks.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
