Excuse me I have something to say here, I did not intend to use the term "red neck" to be any kind of racial, cultural, or social slur in any way. The comment was not directed any one group or person in particular, I used the term adding "itude" on the end because I intended it to be taken entirely humorously, making fun of myself and the town I lived it. If I, a white boy from Georgia and Arizona, who drinks while I shoot, shoots while I drink, kills and eats animals I find in my backyard, who smokes, dips, and drinks whiskey all at the same time can't use the word "red-neck" as a joke in reference to a funny story, well then I don't know what the world's coming to.
So I ask cooler heads to prevail and those arguing that some offense has been made, remember all those time we've seen stories of over the top reactions to minor or non-existant racial slurs. And those arguing its no big deal, well kudos keep at it.
