  • this part of Texas..that sounds pretty redneck. I don't say that to judge. We are southern...but only my son is a redneck. He talks all the time of going to someones "freedom" party. If it has to do with his truck, his guns, beer, bbq hunting, fishing or mudding..he's all there.

  • I have to say that yes, it does sound Redneck, but at the same time, it could be a proud moment too. Now, if you would have been serving road kill as part of the buffet, I would say you are full blown redneck. Lol, there is nothing wrong with it. Everyone has a little redneck in them anyways. :)

  • My family did the same thing for my nephew, but we're from "the hood." So, it was a "ghetto" event according to some; but, we were glad he was home safe & sound. Plus, it was a way for the entire family to welcome him home. "Redneck", "ghetto"... It was all done in love! Hell, it could have been worse: we didn't BBQ on the sidewalk! LOL!

  • I actually don't know the difference between a redneck and white trash (I'm sure I'll get called out for this statement, but it's true) and I never cared to research because I would never label anyone any of those things.
    I think it's admirable that a family is so supportive of each other and I think that giving a party for a loved one who made a mistake and paid for his crime is a great boost for his morale so he can know that he has support and can move forward in his life.
    I say kudos to you and to haywire with everyone else.
