Of course there are rednecks in big cities. Did you think cities were "redneck free zones"?

I've never seen any.

I mean, why would they live here it's all new and people who come here are coming for professional jobs etc. Everyone else is black/mexican/asian/foreign. We don't have the history ethnic enclaves like Chicago so I don't know where to find them. I think it makes sense why they're in Chicago cause its so old.

But if anyone knows there are some in Housotn tell me I'd love to see it!!!! It'd be interesting.

I thought somebody would say Atlanta has some since it's in georgia.

I've seen pictures of confederate flags flying from some homes in Houston.

agreed. houston has two chinatowns and a little Saigon. Also the wards are enclaves for african americans, but they even are pretty diverse especially 3rd ward.

In the actual city limits or in the suburbs? I seriously doubt anyone in the city would hang a confederate flag in the city. That house would be vandalized so fast.

Not sure if it was in the city or suburbs - Glenbrook Valley was one place.

Wow, that is near Hobby Airport. It's really weird that someone would hang a Confederate flag in that area because it is an area heavily populated by minorities, but i'll take your word for it. The only area of Houston that I could imagine someone hanging such a flag would be in the east near Pasedena or Stinkadena as it's sometimes referred to.
