Lindsey suggested that the Confederate flag-wearing student didn't understand the problem at first because he had been transplant from an unnamed state where the Confederate flag is allegedly a more ordinary sight.

Say it with me. Florida.

Mine had a day where people drove tractors to school instead of their cars.  That's redneck as hell.

When I was in high school, if two guys had a score to settle...we would head go to Chuck's dad's farm and play chicken with his dad's tractors. And then I would dance...sometimes in an angry way, in a warehouse.

We had Bubba day.

Also, confederate flags were on almost every house in the old part of town. Bubbas were people who lived there. There were also people there named Bubba. I never really got the hang of it.

Still scratching my head here. Other than the clueless wonder temporarily caped with a Rebel flag, what is inherently racist about rednecks? Were they defending rural whites against a vicious stereotype? Or are rural Americans somehow inherently offensive to minorities? It's not that there aren't rednecks of color, either.

30 seconds of exhaustive research has led me to the conclusion that the one who filed the complaint,  Reverend Jarrett Maupin II, is a full time attention whore and shiat stirrer, and this story is just the result of him being true to his nature.

We had a "drive your tractor to school day". Most people drove their nice field plowing worthy tractors to school, but one kid drove his lawn tractor to school for his 15 mile commute. It must have taken him hours..

I would have thought that the redneck day would be a civil rights issue because it's an event targeting a specific racial/cultural minority and taking joy in bringing up negative stereotypes, an event named with an explicitly derogatory term for said ethnic group.

But no, it's because some kid saw another kid inadvertently use a symbol shared with an unrelated group which oppressed another unrelated group a hundred fifty years before anyone in the school district was a glint in their mother's eye.  That's clearly more offensive than theming your dance around insulting a current blue-collar minority.  Definitely.

My thoughts too.  When I was a kid growing up, "redneck" was an insult.  It suggested an uneducated country dweller destined to work on a farm because he was not smart enough to do anything else.

But today it's just a joke, right?  It's okay to call people names because they're white.

Can you imagine the outrage if they had held a Wetback Day?

That's unrealistic; Arizona would never hold an event that encouraged being Mexican.
 
2013-07-27 06:50:45 AM
This is kind of amazing. It appears that an event meant to be bases on a piece of hicksploitation (duck dynasty), which is a group of dudes as guilty of exploiting their groups stereotype as flavor flav, has been used as outrage fuel by other groups. If anyone here should be offended, it should be rural americans.

We had redneck day or some variation thereof during spirit week in middle and high school.  You couldn't really tell the difference in most of the people that dressed up for it.  Rebel flags on shirts and such were also a regular thing.  Nobody thought twice about it.

Rednecks are pretty much the only group it's politically correct to make fun of nowadays.

Don't underestimate the speed possible with lawn tractors built up by rednecks

Seems like a great opportunity to teach the students about a variety of subjects like religious persecution, class conflict, and how capitalist media has historically maligned militant labor uprisings.

You know, in any other place than Arizona, no one would have said a thing. But, it's Arizona and their reputation proceeds them, even if it's as innocent as simply dressing up like a redneck to honor a great show (Duck Dynasty).

One day my high school decided to ban shirts with the confederate flag (which affected a large number of students who wore Dixie Outfitters t-shirts every day).  The next day half the school, including a few black kids, wore confederate flag t-shirts.  The local news showed up, too.  The school then decided to forget about the ban, and everything went back to normal.

This.

The sad thing is, most times it's white people who say, "What's the big deal?" or "Why can't everyone just take a joke?"

It's not funny when you stereotype your own people because you can't recognize discriminatory behavior even when it's directed at you. When I say most white people wouldn't recognize racism if it jumped up and bit them on the nose, well, here's the proof.

wtf are you talking about?
You completely missed the point.
This is about 1 person who complained and the government stepping in wondering if this violated OTHER people's rights.
The school and everyone participating was fine with it.

don't be such a racist.

You know, for this redneck day, since rednecks tend to be those of little means who find (non conventional) ways to survive, do they allow them to show up to school with a ducttape lunchbox or something.

just a thought

General rule of Comedy:

It's OK to kick up, but you can't kick 'em while they're down*.


*Unless they're celebrities or politicians. It takes a while to knock 'em down in the first place, so it's all right to mock 'em while they're down. They tend to get back up again any way.
 
2013-07-27 12:25:00 PM
It's OK for white people to make fun of themselves because nobody else gives a f**king tinker's damn about the bastards.

*Tinker's damn. An expression that nobody but white people use. What does it mean? Most of us don't really know, but we suspect it is Irish.
