Rednecks are truly one of the last freespirited people in the U.S. They don’t give a damm what anyone else thinks. The term “redneck” is often misunderstood by those north of the Mason-Dixon line. Many Yankees misunderstand this beloved term of endearment and treat the word as if it were some kind of insult. A true Southerner understands that achieving the state of Redneck is a noble pursuit.
