Never know what you might find at the flea market.  I scored.  Might have even been a double barrel.

I know the word you are talking about , in fact I am proud to say I am one of them and I like to think I got some Redneck in me too , spent a lot of time in the Great State of Mississippi  >>>>  need to bring it up to Retro that , that "word"  is not post-able here , maybe cause  the word is a hyphenated word which  contains a banded word , seems maybe when the two words are joined it could  be allowed , shoot that's my heritage  , LOL

LOL.  What he said! 

 

When I was growing up I thought of "redneck" as a derogatory term. 

 

As I got older, I started using Redneck as a euphemism for "good country folk" and "white trash" because the derogatory term dejour

 

But we certainly use it up here, and my wife calls me that all the time (looking at my piles of broken down machines)

This is so perfectly said for my experience as well.

The other word for people from Louisiana is not derogatory to me either even though some people use it that way. Term of endearment here.

Perfectly fine being called a redneck depending on who says it and the context 🤣

I have a buddy born and raised in New Orleans ,  he moved to Mississippi about 30 years ago ,  well the nickname I dubbed him with is Redneck , and all our buddies followed suit , that is all every one ever calls him , " Where's Redneck at , talk to Redneck lately , Redneck coming this weekend " , I call him Red for short sometimes ,  it is amazing how he changed , he looks and sounds like he was born and raised in Mississippi , he speaks better Redneck than people that lived there their entire life , be careful it is contagious hanging out with Rednecks  , LOL

Our group were always called the rednecks,  but then our town was pretty country. Whip antennas,  cb radios, trucks..  We had a few areas that were" questionable " about who went in .

We didn't shun anyone away as long as the didn't get us in trouble. It was hard enough keeping a spot in town to do our hanging out. Was always fun to kick my Boomer 400 on high and open up the doors at the grocery stores hahaha!
