First off, keep in mind I am 21. Also, these pictures might be offensive to some people. These pictures are from Facebook - I know people who unfortunately know these people and I would just like to let everyone know that these people exist here and if you have high-school/college-aged children these are who they might encounter. (These people are seniors at Providence High School, believe it or not).

I cannot stand these people and for everyone on here who tries to trick people into thinking it isn't like that anymore or there are people like this everywhere, they are wrong. If you move here or already have, hopefully your children won't turn into one of these low-lives. I can't believe parents here let their children act like that. This is what makes me embarrassed to live here. Other than that (and I feel that this is a valid complaint), I can't really complain.

So having your children grow up to be rednecks and wave the confederate flag around is ok? Driving a retarded looking car that you need a ladder to get into to drive around in the mud is considered "cool"?

You are letting a couple of ignorant arseholes affect how you feel about an entire region? $1000 they cant tell you more than 1 thing about the Confederacy. There are going to be stupid people no matter where you live.

I don't get your complaint....what's the problem?? A lot of people do not take offense to a Confederate Flag. They are proud to be Southern...I don't see anything wrong with it. If you think it racist remember this is not the majority and the fact of the matter is that you have dopes living everywhere in this country. It's not like they are wearing white sheets burning crosses on someones lawn. I say live and let live...you shouldn't judge people who have different values and ways of life then you do.

I always make sure my family takes care of their shoes b/f carrying the Battle Flag anywhere. I don't know what happened to these kids. And it sounds like they are from old Southern families. Hmmmmm.

Four-wheeling isn't really the issue because it can actually be fun. Not something I would do on a regular basis but I tried to be more open-minded so I tried it. However, these people literally play in the mud. It is the confederate flag thing that bothers me the most, and that they think being a redneck is "cool". Get an education and get a job and be useful to society. Some people say it is heritage, but come on. These kids were all born in the late 1980's. They are AMERICANS. They should be proud to be AMERICAN. The Civil War ended long before their time. Why am I even explaining this? Most of you wouldn't get what I am saying anyways.
