The Term “Redneck” Does Not Mean What You Might Think


When someone uses the word "Redneck," images of a pick-up truck with a gun-rack and an open 12-pack of beer may come to mind for most. In fact, the popular culture definition of Redneck really paints them in an unfavorable light.

A slang term, usually for a rural white southerner who is politically conservative, racist, and a religious fundamentalist (see fundamentalism). This term is generally considered offensive. It originated in reference to agricultural workers, alluding to how the back of a person's neck will be burned by the sun if he works long hours in the fields.

Despite the popular slang definition of Redneck, the true origins of the word are tied to a much more intelligent, honorable and motivated group of freedom fighters from hundreds of years in the past. The real Rednecks were men and women of strong character and strong conviction, much like our recent guest on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show, Billy Redneck.

Billy Redneck reached out to this writer soon after our second interview with Torah Pastor, Charles Dowell. I had the pleasure of speaking with Billy at length the days leading up to the interview posted below, and all I can say is that listening to Billy impart his Biblical wisdom is like taking a drink of water from a fire-hose. If you are a student of the Torah, and appreciate fiery preaching, make it a point to tune in to Billy's daily broadcast on Classic Redneck Radio.
Please take the time to listen to our interview with Billy posted below to get the real history of the terms Hillbilly, Redneck and much more.
