    Does the term redneck refer to a culture or race?

    There seems to be some confusion about this word. I tend to use it to refer to a culture, where others seem to want to use it to refer to a race.

    I believe it refers to a culture. I have known both redneck white and black people.

    It could be both. Rarely do I hear the term redneck being used against anyone but white people. Redneck describes a certain type of white people.

    Even if it is use primarily against white people. Do you feel that the aim of the insult is against their race or culture?

    I think the aim is to insult their intelligence.

    Its clearly a culture just has "hick" would be. Also like someone said depending on where you are at in the country, yes, there are VERY MUCH redneck blacks. But of course it is much more commonly used to refer to white people, as they are the majority and the redneck culture is of course larger among them.

    I guess it's just coincidence that all rednecks are white. How stupid.
