A person can be a part of a culture and not be completely assimilated. The culture does promote racism, but it doesn't mean everyone in that culture is racist.
It just refers to people from rural areas, because they often have red necks due to sunburn, got from working outdoors. It is a bit like why Irish people in Ireland call people who live in rural areas culties. Neither red neck nor cultie is ever(as far as I know) intended to be a positive 'word'. It usually implies characteristics such as unsophisticated, unstylish...
Of course it doesn't refer to race, how the hell could it? It's purely a cultural thing.
I thought it referred to the DC football team?

Culture seems too nice a word to use about unflattering generalisations such as red neck. Isnt red neck just name calling? Wouldnt it be a bit like calling me a Mick, because I am Irish and assigning a list of characteristics that Micks have to me, even if I dont fit into all of them?
If redneck does mean race then what is the "redneck" race? White people? If this is true, then wouldn't all white people be rednecks? If it's a racial term what is the difference between a redneck white person and a non-redneck white person?
