This list is silly. Atlanta isn't redneck.

Now, if you go 45 minutes in any direction, then it is redneck. But, inside the city limits it isn't.

I call B.S. on this.

#1. Atlanta.  Really?  Did anyone review the redneck to African-American ratio?  You have to get well beyond  the Perimeter even to find the slightest hint of redneck.

#6 & #7.  Where does Fort Worth end and Arlington begin?  Sure, more redneck than Atlanta, but downright  cosmopolitan compared to the city that should be #1.

#9. Cleveland.  See #1.

#10. This one I can believe.

What city should be #1?  Palm Bay, Florida.  Note I didn't type Palm Beach, rather Palm Bay.  I had the  misfortune of living there for six years.  I have also lived in Atlanta and Fort Worth.  Those cities aren'teven in the same league.  Why?  I'll tell you why?

1. It's full of underemployed, alcoholic white trash.
2. It's largely made up of Jim Walter homes sitting on septic tanks and wells.
3. Despite a toddler get torn to shreds by a pit bull every other week, the whole town got riled up when the city council suggested owners should keep their dogs under control and on a leash.
4. Search for my "rape baby" story here on fark.com.
5. Palm Bay is to Florida as Florida is the United States.
6. It's the only place in the world where I've been threatened and assaulted.  Once was at work.  I reported the guy and was told my security "if we didn't see it, it didn't happen".
7. The big thing to do was go to the drag races.
8. I got so tired of being cornered and told, "You think yer better than me because yer a college boy!", I stopped wearing anything with my college name on it and removed my bumper sticker.
9. I had a neighbor who would let his huge dogs crap up his front yard and he and his brother would wrestle in it.
10. The city was full of fat, ugly, greasy-haired trashy single moms with about eight trashlings in tow and made no attempt to control their brood.
11. When the state passed their anti-smoking laws back in the 90s (which then only mandated the invisible line down the middle for smoking and non) several restaurants refused to do it claiming it was unconstitutional.  At one place, The Wagon Wheel, the waitress served our food with a lit cig in her mouth and I could see back into the kitchen and the cooks were smoking.
12. People almost go out of their way to be as inconsiderate to others as humanly possible.

No Beckley, WV anywhere in the top 10. I'm officially calling "Shenanigans".

I think Beckley would be more 'hillbilly'.

Hillbilly? Redneck? I didnt know there was a difference

There is. Hillbillies are folks from out in the hills and mountains of Appalachia. A redneck is generally supposed to be a poorer uneducated person from the South although that definition is pretty useless actually since so many people self-identify as redneck who are neither poor nor uneducated. You can be a hillbilly but not a redneck and a redneck but not a hillbilly and I've met a fair number of people from one group do not want to called the other.


Actually, Hillbillies ARE Rednecks who moved from the coastline of Virginia and North Caroline into the hills or the back woods to claim land and to mine coal.   Rednecks are Scots that were Presbyterian Rebels against English and Scot Bishops.  They wore red kerchiefs around their necks as a symbol of their fight against them.  When they moved here to the new world, the Colonists nicked them "Rednecks" and looked down on them.  

The differences today depends on where you live.  If you live in the Southeast, a Redneck is more derogatory than a Hillbilly.  Rednecks are arrogant, obnoxious, stupid, lazy, uneducated hooligans and bigots. Hillbillies are folks who live in the country, work hard, don't earn much but share everything with everyone. Out west however, it's the opposite.  So, meh.  It's ambiguous at best.

5. Albertville, Al
6. Boaz, Al

11.  Any other city in Alabama

Mesa, AZ is as sophisticated as Vienna, Austria in comparison to any of them. In fact, many people from Alabama travel abroad to Mesa to get exposed to culture.

Fort Worth and Arlington?  That's stupid.  I lived in Arlington for two years.  It's not redneck, just shiat hole.

And no city that has the Kimbell can be called redneck.

The correct answer to this poll is Salem, Va.

The author needs to be whupped on the nose with a rolled up newspaper like a puppy that just peed on the floor.  The article/slideshow isn't offensive: it's lazy.

In fact everyone in the blog staff should be made to stand in the corner for an hour or two and think about what they've done wrong.

There is also the Good Ole Boy. Not a redneck, but countrified all the same. Usually educated, but still enjoys the outdoor activities and diet of the average redneck.

My guess is that if you made a bet that Jeff Foxworthy doesn't live in any of the 10 most redneck cities, then you'd win. So I turned to my trusty scout, Google, to find out where he does live. Google says Alpharette, Georgia, but have a peek at his house:

http://www.celebrityhousepictures.com/jeff-foxworthy.php

If your house looks like a small Italian mountain village, you might be a redneck. Or just a nouveau riche comedian who makes a good living out gentle Horatian satire of his sisters and his cousins and his aunts.

Well, it does go a long way to proving he is the smartest of the Blue Collar Tour comics, that and not living in one of the 10 most redneck cities in the USA.

Well, insofar as Jane Fonda's favorite ex-hubby, Ted Turner, is a redneck (the billionaire character based on him in The Critic certainly was a member of the Higher Red Neck classes), then I guess you could say such a suburban sprawl of a house could be a sign of genuine redneck roots, at least South of the Mason Dixon line and West of General Sherman's grave.

Did you know that Jane Fonda's birth name was Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda, which means that she is named after a young, sweet, short-lived lady who had the misfortune of being advanced as a replacement for Queen Elizabeth the First? She was executed, along with a number of the would-be King-Makers. Queen Elizabeth was a Tudor and still half medieval in her methods of governance, although she was a really smart cookie.

I have a number of these high-ranked courtiers and plotters in my family tree but like everybody else, they are on Wikipedia, so I won't bother to look up their names for you. One of them was Queen Elizabeth's governess, although she doesn't seem to have been involved in the treasonable business.

Judging from that photo, I'd say that Jeff Foxworthy's residence is not in the 10 most redneck cities, or the 100, or the 1000, or the 10,000 or even the 100,000. His home base seems pretty upper income suburban, and could thus in theory be anywhere in the well-heeled Continental US. It just happens to be near Atlanta.

sigdiamond2000: "The 10 Most Redneck Cities in America" according to a person who doesn't know what a redneck is.


In all honesty, most people who use the term "Redneck" don't know what it means. lol  

It's a Scottish term brought over from Scotland and blended into the Scot-Irish culture here on the East Coast.  It has something to do with a political/religious group that wore red scarves around their necks to signify which side they were on.  Only now in modern culture have we redefined it to be slang for poor, uneducated and/or trashy.

downstairs: Nabb1: Atlanta is #1?  Atlanta isn't even in the top ten of the most redneck cities in Georgia.

Exactly.  Atlanta is the most northern city in the South.  Anecdotal evidence here from a weekend visit, but the whole city seemed like a fancy strip mall, like the ones I grew up near in the Chicago 'burbs.


I am constantly saying Atlanta is the least Southern city in the South.  Second is Nashville.

I'd like to meet who wrote this so I could explain to him what a complete idiot he is.
