    You just said that in another post that aren't all racists. Now, you say that entire culture promotes racism. You say that if white southerners are the only folks that promote racism.

    You are not typing in complete sentances and if I do not respond to your statement, I apologize, but I am trying to interpret your post as best I can.

    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...

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Of course it doesn't refer to race, how the hell could it? It's purely a cultural thing.

    I think knowing what is rascist should be based on common sense and a sense of fair mindedness, rather than a nit picking definition. A defininition makes it easy for some, to push on the boundries while claiming not to be rascist.

    Re: Does the term redneck refer to a culture or race?

    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?

    Re: Does the term redneck refer to a culture or race?

    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?
