    No - it's a racial slur for black people.

    Red-Neck is a racial slur for white people. Same with cracker and honky.
    You don't have to be white to be a redneck. Any ol' hick will do. Stupidity isn't limited to just white people.

    I just reread all my statements in this thread. I do not see where I said that. Please quote it.

    Ok. I will wait for a real definition. I would like a culture, a history, and more before a judgement call could be made.

    I don't believe in racial superiority. I believe in cultural superiority which really is pretty normal, people tend to think their way of life is the best one). There is a huge difference in my view, even if all members of a particular culture happen to share a race. Also, I do not believe that cultures should be legally discriminated against.

    Why do you keep using my comments to jump off to absurd conclusions and attribute things to me that I never wrote? Can you actually argue what is in front of you or so you have to make things up to make a point?

    from Wikipedia

    Wetback is a person of Latin American descent. It applies to those who have crossed the border illegally, but it is widely applied to all Latinos. The term originated with Mexicans that entered Texas from Mexico by crossing the Rio Grande,[1] presumably by swimming or wading across and getting his or her back wet in the process.

    This is pretty much how I feel about the issue. Honestly, I see an American Redneck as essentially the same type of person as an English Chav or a guy from La Raza or any number of cultural bigoted groups in places like New York City (like a greaser, guido, (even the sharks and jets from west side story)). They are all pretty much the same type of idiot even though they were born in different places and to different races.

    One doesn't have to be black to be a nigger, either. Right?

    Where did you get that from the article?


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    From wikipedia:

    Nigger is a noun in the English language, most notable for its usage in a pejorative context to refer to black people (generally people who were originally from Africa), and also as an informal slang term, among other contexts. It is a common ethnic slur. The word originated as a term used in a neutral context to refer to black people, as a variation of the Spanish/Portuguese noun negro, a descendant of the Latin adjective niger, meaning the color "black".[1][2][3][4]
    I don't see where it states that the term nigger refers to a subset of black people. So nigger is not interchangeable with redneck as they refer to different types of things.

    I don't know missy, but I am beginning to suspect that adpst is only having half of his conversation with us on this forum as determined by the number of things he is pulling out of his rear end.

    Sure thing, bro.

    When speaking of whites, you call it cultural superiority. When speaking of blacks, you call it racsim. Double standards suck.
