redneck

1. noun, slang A derogatory term for a white person, typically male and from a rural area, especially in the Southern United States, who is considered stereotypically uncultured, unintelligent, prone to reckless behavior, and often bigoted. The term can also be used to self-identify as such in a proud or self-deprecating way, especially emphasizing the element of reckless behavior. You assume that because I'm from Texas, that means I'm just a dumb redneck, huh? You know how that part of the country is—it's just a bunch of rednecks down there! Of course I love swamp racing—I'm a redneck!
2. adjective, slang Of, relating to, or in the manner of such a stereotype. I wouldn't wear that T-shirt around here, Dan. This is redneck country. I come from Alabama, so I try to stick up for people from the South, but you're making it hard with that ignorant redneck mentality! My redneck buddy threw a stick of dynamite into the fishing hole! Hoo boy that thing went boom!
