Oroville.

Mind you, I am not belittling them. There is nothing wrong with not being a city person.

Oh and the term redneck is racist and seems to be in use only because media elites love to deride working white folks.

In any case, the term Hillbilly was for Appalachia and it seems odd to use it in California.

East County and Northen inland County of San Diego definitely qualifies for being one of the most Redneck/Hick places in all of CA.

It’s heaviily rural, pitch black at night, and spaced out. Just the way country people like it.

El Monte (many dust bowl Okies), El Cajon, and much of the inland area.

The Hillbillies brought fundamentalist Christianity to California in the 1930s.

I also think that Pentecostal preacher and flamboyant huckster Aimee Semple MacPheson, with her Angelus Temple, drew hillbillies too CA at the turn of the last century.

Right lol

I have Bay Area friends that tell me how overly White and Redneck San Diego is at times compared to the Bay. Lots of White trash to the East with tweakers, homeless white guys and drunks running the streets, to rich White folks on the coast and gentrifying urban areas. Speaking some truth and honesty, it sounds means but it is what it is. Lived here my entire life.
