    Yeah, kind of like when someone says "Here, hold my beer for me... Hey everyone, watch this!"

    You just know it's not going to end well.

    Dear Snowcake,

    Though they in fact can be found in the same geographical area, there's a WORLD of difference in character between 'redneck' and 'white trash'.

    "White Trash" describes lowlife Caucasians - people who would be late on their rent and destroy the place as they're about to be evicted, for instance. Meth-heads, welfare scammers, and neglecters or abusers of children, for a few more examples.

    "Rednecks" are usually rural folks who are unaware of or are unimpressed with city-folk ways and who would prefer to work for a living, often doing something tangible like farming or factory work. These are the prototypical work-all-week-then-hunt-fish-6pack guys. I used to live in the San Francisco Bay Area then in Los Angeles: I now live in Appalachia and have tremendous respect for the fine people who are my neighbors. You have no idea how nice it is to have the gal at the insurance agency and the pharmacy tech recognize me by my voice over the phone (both have happened to me here). And folks will stop and offer help when you're by the side of the road. These are the people I want to be like, in spite of my University degrees and fondness for classical music. I moved my family here so my daughter could grow up here instead of surrounded by white trash - the town we came from now is second only to Detroit in percent on welfare.

    Historically redneck has been used to describe uneducated poor white farmers, and indeed has been used interchangeably with 'hillbilly' (though that's offensive to our locals) and 'white trash' (though 'white trash' suggests immorality while 'redneck' does not). Matt Wray, in Not Quite White: White Trash and the Boundaries of Whiteness (2006), writes that the main difference is that "redneck," "cracker", "Okie", and "hillbilly" emphasize that a person is poor and uneducated and comes from the backwoods with little awareness of the modern world, while "white trash" emphasizes the person's moral failings (pp. 79, 102).

    While White Trash can be found anywhere, both groups seem to be seen in rural areas and both are usually struggling financially. But our whole site here is devoted to defending ourselves from one type and championing the other (OK, we've got some wealthy city folks here, too, but I'm waxing poetic).

    And the typical redneck seems better able to laugh at himself than many city folks: the classic is describing activities which start out with such leaders as, "So I said to 'em, 'Hey, y'all, watch this (hold my beer for me)..." Hence this thread.

    Sitting on the back patio shooting at rats in the back yard with a pellet gun. My daughter said we were having a Red Neck evening.
    Although, if we weren' out there at the time, we would have missed a large meteor that went over the area that night.
    This happened about a month ago.

    I also jumped out of a boat going full speed (about 45 mph) into the water just to see what it would be like. Oh.. I did NOT hand over my beer - I don't drink, I was stone sober. Maybe I should start, it probably would have been safer.

    Back in the late 80s while stationed in Germany, I was selected to go to the NCO Academy in England. My administrative office waited too late to book the flight and I ended up on a first class flight on British Airways!!!

    Needless to say it was a first for me so I was excited. My redneck move came when half-way through the flight the flight attendent handed me a bowl of water with a lemon wedge. I thought it was really fancy until I started drinking from it and realized everyone else was putting their fingers in it and giving me strange looks!!!

    Another time I was TDY to Japan and went to the babershop on base which had mostly Japanese barbers. After he finished cutting my hair he started hitting me in the back! I jumped out of the chair, turned around and started going after him. It was then that some other airmen grabbed me and told me the guy was just trying to give me a massage. I sat back down but the guy never came back!!!

    Sitting on my buddy's back porch, we had 5 dollars between us, which we could either spend on beer or dinner.

    So we shot two squirrels while sitting there and went on a beer run.
