Do you good folks know what a "redneck" is? (Was actually)
Rednecks, a social slur, were people (dirt poor farmers usually) who could not afford a slave or slaves in the antibellem south. They had to do all their own work in the fields which meant a lot of stoop labor in the hot sun which lead them to suffer from badly sunburned necks. Slaves usually cost the current price of a mid to upper priced car today, remember, and nearly 90% or more of the southern population didn't own any slaves for this and other reasons.
We warned you in 1862!
