So true. I have hipster urbanite friends in Seattle and they are actually some of the most nave people I know. It is like they live in this bubble and are ignorant (and extremely judgmental) of those who do not live and think in their bubble.

People who think that are idiots who shouldn't be trusted with a box of matches.

For "redneck but not southern", Southern Iowa and Northern Missouri are about as good of an example as you can get!!

Southern but not Redneck doesn't exactly come to mind when considering that the vast majority of white native Atlantans are Protestant "old stock " Anglo Americans.

Redneck but not Southern - that's pretty much the definition of the Lower Midwest (which often gets lumped with the Upper South but are still separate entities).

So basically that's most of rural Missouri, southern Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Heck, maybe even southern Michigan too.
