  • Just because she's very "hillbilly" doesn't mean anything.
    You say she's racist, and now sounds like you're stereotyping.

    I'm originally from Kentucky.
    I speak slow, stress my vowels, and like going muddin' (not mudding) on the weekends. However, I'm not racist.

  • Is your co-worker black or white?
    I'm guessing white?

    However, I think it's hilarious. Dumb people.

  • she is white, as am I. It just didn't sit well with me. She is very Hillbilly and has a rebel flag tattoo and goes mudding on the weekends. I just feel like that is crossing the line.

  • I would need to know the context of the FUCO statement. Is there nothing else on the bumper sticker other than FUCU and For Us Crackers Only?
    If I were to venture a guess, I would say that it is a racist statement referring to the US belonging to white people only.
    By the way, I've don't have any issues with a hillbilly or a rebel flag or going mudding. I have serious issues with some racist statements. I also have serious issues with racism being a default declaration when one states their opinion.

  • She is a self proclaimed hillbilly. That's all her not me. Hillbilly as a term tend to lend it's self to racism but I never really even considered her as such until I read the back of her truck.
