Why do people think everyone from the midwest is a redneck?


I live in the midwest(Michigan) and im not a redneck. I dont like wal-mart, i dont farm, i dont worship Jeff Foxworthy, and i shower daily.

Why do people think the midwest is all rednecks?
SS- how do i not belong here? I was born here and my family has lived here for over 140 years.

I grew up in Iowa. I will agree that not everyone is a redneck (myself included) but oh.my.God, so many people are.

No; midwest people aren’t rednecks. You’re hicks, country bumpkins and yokels.

Those guys in the south, they are the rednecks

I wouldn’t say we midwesterners are considered rednecks,those are southerners. I agree, Im from Cincinnati, and along with Chicago, we have some of the best curtural institutions and great neighborhoods of any city.

I think it is more of a political thing. The midwest is known for Christian religious fanaticism and farming. Nothing wrong with farmers.
