There is a HUGE difference between being country, and being a redneck.
If you say you're "country" then that means you're old fashioned, you have values, you're simple (meaning you don't need alot to be happy) You can read, write, AND SPELL. I think apple pies cooling on a window sill, red checkered table cloths. You enjoy hunting, and fishing. You can keep a CLEAN home...
Okay maybe not completely to this extent but you get the point. (or I'd hope so at least)
There is nothing wrong with that.
Now, if you run around bragging that you're a "redneck" then I think you're trash. Period.
I think trailer, beer, filthy yard, nasty children, two ton Betty wives, NASCAR, rebel flag tattoos, ignorance, racism, illiteracy, and sheer stupidity.
People need to learn the difference before they categorize themselves.
There. Rant over.
