What about 'Socialist' and 'Liberal?' 'Rednecks' do not like 'Liberals,' and use it in a derogatory manner. Is 'Liberal' intended to be a derogatory word? Is 'Liberal' a racist word? Didn't I read a post where Ben Nelson was called a 'Lib Pig?' What do you say Mori?
Terms such as liberal, socialist, conservative, and capitalist are terms that describe a political, economic, and social ideology. They do not apply to a specific demographic based on race, religion, economic status, or where one chooses to live. Again, I can't really make this more clear but the term "redneck" is always an insult specifically against poor and less educated white people in rural areas. "Redneck" is a specific term used against a specific demographic in the general population. It is a slur. Five stars please.
