My PC apologies, I'm not referring to poor white laborers in the fields of the deep South, nor the Coal belt, nor the Corn belt, nor the Oil Patch, who happen to have a red neck as a result of being out in the sun too long.

In this case, Redneck = backwater KKK types

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

From Merriam-Webster:

'a white person who lives in a small town or in the country especially in the southern U.S., who typically has a working-class job, and who is seen by others as being uneducated and having opinions and attitudes that are offensive.'

Yeah, but I don't concur with that definition. I know plenty of working class southerners who're not a bunch of bigots and hate ppl of other races and nationalities.

Sure, they may not know about countries like Albania, Malaysia, or Azerbaijan but at the same time, they don't dislike ppl, if they're from those countries.

Yes, that's more like it. Those are the real hate types, not white ppl, who simply have a a working class background.

I agree with you. There's no crime in being unsophisticated, or even uneducated for that matter. Conversely, I've met the odd well-educated 'gentleman' types who would fall into the redneck category.
