You tell him! I'm so tired of being characterized by the ignorant. Do you think he gets the sarcasm? Probably not. He probably doesn't know anything about Southern Heritage...That there are at least 3 possible origins for the term redneck: that the mostly widely accepted is that of rural farmers that got a sunburned neck from laboring outside. (Is this where we're supposed to say thank for for Reconstruction and the effects it had on our economy!) I wonder if this person knows about the second possible origin that occurred at 'The Battle of Blairs Mountain' in West Virgina in 1921 or perhaps from our Scot roots and the selection of the Presbyterian Church over the Church of England. Probably not. To think, there is actual intelligence 'over the bridge'.
Here ends the lesson: Southern doesn't mean stupid or ignorant!
