Yes, people may not realize that some Black, Hispanic and even Asians in the Bos-Wash portion of the Northeast have just moved to interior cities/parts of PA, NY, MA or even to some places in VT, NH and ME.

Well, you're in Texas. Almost every Texan outside of Austin has a shirt like that.

I've been to both York and Lancaster, son, so I'm perfectly qualified to inform you that despite their redneck populations, they're still no more redneck than other similarly-sized non-Southern metropolitan areas that I've spent meaningful time in, like Youngstown, Canton, Dayton, Des Moines, or any of the metropolitan areas in central Illinois. So no, you're not ending this; I am, because I have an actual basis for comparison.

I noted at the bottom of the list that the white, black, Asian and multiracial percentages did not exclude Hispanics. I probably should have emphasized that more, though.

Yeah expect the places you listed also have a pretty substantial number of rednecks.......

I don't know about "A lot of Upstate NY". Again, some rural areas, sure, but most people live in an urbanized area in Upstate NY.

I love the South, the cost of living is way cheaper than the Northeast, the people are more outgoing and friendly which fits into my extravert nature. The weather is better, its more mild most of the year.. except the summers suck.. too hot and humid but the rest of the year is pretty nice. I love the South, most my family moved from MA or NY to Atlanta and Nashville so they are close by to me in Kentucky. I have not had too many bad experiences with rural southern people.. even being from Boston I usually get along with almost everyone one of them. People just stereotype the south from what they see in Hollywood movies.
My uncle, who is from the south, once told me that rednecks live in trailers and hillbilly's live in cabins. Redneck is one of those of things that is hard to define, but everyone knows one when they see them,

I've always thought redneck meant an utter lack of sophistication. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Rural Broome County feels rednecky for sure. I would guess that it's the same thing for all of rural, Appalachian, New York.
