    I never said I was unhappy, and mentioned I liked a good joke as much as the next person. I just can't put my head around starting a thread using a derogatory term. I'm Hispanic so the term doesn't bother me, but maybe there are other members that take issue with it.


    Yes I have received infractions in the past. Yes, they were probably because of a bit of immaturity. I just don't feel it is right to start a thread called Redneck Test. Same way as some wouldn't appreciate threads started with "Coon Test", "Almond Eyes Test", etc.

    Seriously, you are really going to get offended on behalf of rednecks? Really? I swear, every time I think I have heard it all here, someone comes along and surprises me.

    For God's sake, it is a thread about Freaking REDNECKS!!! They are not a race. They are not an endangered species. They are just folk. Lighten up. Eric


    And for the record, I have NEVER seen a redneck take the term as derogatory, unless it was obviously intended that way.

    Hey, if I tell an Indian joke, can I complain that I offended myself?

    I know redneck is not a race, but it's a term used as a racial slur against certain white people.

    Eric, I'm not offended by the term. Though maybe there are other members, or even paying sponsors that do not appreciate the term being thrown around. That is just my opinion, I'll let you boys get back at it.

    Two rednecks decide to receive government subsidies due to the drought.

    As they were to sign their release forms, the man collecting the forms ask why the first redneck didn't completely fill out the questionnaire pamphlet. He replies, "I never really learnt how to read or spelt that good." The man states, "If you can't read or write, you will not be able to apply for this assistance." Upon hearing this, the second redneck blurts out, "That's okay, he's with me, I can read and write fine and I'll help him fill these forms out."

    The guy handing out the forms says fine, and then advises that they both have to sign a consent form. The first redneck signs the form, and then ask the second redneck if he signed on the right line. The second redneck said, "Yes, that's the right line, but you forgot to put a circle around your -X-." The first redneck, while whispering states, "Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I don't want to give these government men my last name."

    I can't believe I am having this conversation.

    It isn't a racial term unless it applies to a race. 'Redneck' ain't a race, it's a state of mind. It is not a slur. I don't fit neatly into any particular category, but I fit into redneck about as we'll as any. Redneck isn't an insult. It is a person who is self-sufficient. If something breaks, he fixes it. If he needs a part or a tool or something that isn't available, he makes it. If a problem comes up, he by-God deals with it. What is wrong with that? Eric

    Actually, the oldest reference I have found to the term "redneck" goes back to the early 20th century as a term for Catholics, in reference to the clerical collar. Sometime in the 60's it became a term for conservatives who's hair was cut so short they would get sunburn on their necks. 'Like a "farmer's tan"

    Can I complain that you didn't refer to it as a Native American joke?

    I am a Native American. My kin have been here since Jamestown was established. The first Powell here in my wood pile lived with the Chikahominee Indians for most of his life. FWIW, the people who were here before us pale faces didn't spring up out of the ground here. They came from somewhere else too. To me, the term is meaningless and a bit ridiculous. people get too damned hung up on labels. Eric

    As long as you know the difference between a slurpee Indian and a casino Indian, I'm cool with it.

    There is no pure anything. I have Sioux Indian out there in the wood pile. Not enough to claim a benefit. One of my best friends is half Apache and I think he is whiter than I am.

    He and his father were good friends of mine, until his father passed. His father used to call me white boy, but you'd never tell he was Apache to look at him. He was more a redneck than I'll ever be.

    Redneck is a state of mind.

    Most "Rednecks" I know are proud to be called Redneck. Also, I know some people who wish that could be called redneck. It's not a name...It's a title!

    We recently spent $2500 on a young Black Angus bull. We put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow. I was beginning to suspect he was gay, if that's possible with a bull.

    Anyhow, I had the Vet come have a look at him. He said the bull was very healthy, but possible a little young, so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day. Holy crap! The bull started to service the cows within two days. All of my cows! He even broke through the fence and bred all my neighbor's cows!

    He's been breeding just about everything in sight. He's like a
    machine!" I don't know what in hell was in the pills the Vet gave him, but they kind of taste like peppermint.
