Since the term 'redneck' derives from the propensity for a man who works
the land to develop a tan on the back of the neck, stereotypes such as
you state are merely prejudical opinion promulgated by elitist leftist
'intelligentsia' types who have never done a day of honest work in
their lives.

Anyone who does an honest days work for their living outside of an air
conditioned office is, by definition, a redneck. As someone who
regularly talks about how some statements are offensive or prejudicial,
I hope you can recognise how your own PS is, similarly.
