Can other cultures (besides whites) be considered "red-necks"?

I have always wondered this because seriously, I know alot of people who can fit into every aspect of the "...you just might be a redneck" jokes. Except for maybe Nascar. And they are so not white. Just curious...

  • I suppose if you are attributing the term "red-neck" to a list of characteristics then certainly any race could fit the bill BUT it is a stereotype that is typically pinned on just us country-fried white people, lol.

  • I think redneck is the same thing as white trash, except white trash live in the city & rednecks live in the country. But, yeah...i think it's generally termed for white people, w/ no class. I actually know a few people who don't mind being called a redneck...had no idea that some like the term.

  • Yes I been to areas of Puerto Rico where they are seriously rednecks. Cowboy hats, obsessed with horses never close their doors like it is a barn with chickens and stray dogs running a muck in their kitchen. Need i say more lmao.

  • I think when using the term redneck, it is now more used to describe characteristics of some people and not necessarily actual "rednecks" Some of the stuff on those list i've seen around my town and the people there are the last ones you would call redneck!
