I agree with you FTG. I got pretty hostile the other day when a friend described a cop, who had just given him a speeding ticket, as a "dumb redneck".[b said:Quote[/b] ]High-class melodramatics have a preconceived notion about rednecks, using the word in a derogatory way, assuming that we're all hillbillies, we're all stupid and we're all racist and homophobic. I will get extremely hostile over this,....
chimps should be in our genus, but of course they're not because we the almighty supreme rules of the world can't possibly share a genus with those less evolved beasts.[b said:Quote[/b] ]Afterall, we are only a specie of a Genus

[b said:Quote[/b] ]I have no idea why anyone would WANT to be veiwed as a redneck. Personally, it reminds me of an uneducated whitey. Along these lines, I would consider myself redneckphobic. Afterall, why would I intentionally surround myself with unintelligence. Perhaps others have a differing veiw of "redneck". To each their own.
