Gotta Watch: Rednecks at play

Self-proclaimed "rednecks" gather across the country to enjoy some fun in the mud and we've captured them on video. Watch as some swim in a mud pit, hurl hubcaps and compete in beer-related contests. One woman states "what makes it so fun is that it's a bunch of rednecks getting along."

    I never chime in to the ignorance, but this time I can't help it. There is a stupid culture out there that expects white people to be ashamed of themselves. I can only say this, get over it and stop feeding the hatred! I truely wish you haters would just vanish and stop feeding the hate!

    What's crazy is that these "rednecks" deride government taxation, yet because those Southern States have the highest teen pregnancy, the most obese and uneducated people in our country, I have to pay taxes to take care of them.

    I have no problem with muddin and wheeling, but when these people smoke, drink and are grossly fat and then complain about government and vote GOP, it makes me angry that I end up allocating HUGE tax dollars into their ignorant States.

    REDNECK is a racist name. CNN is guilty of racist hate speech and should have to explain how this hate filled derogatory term was allowed to be printed.

      Did you see the term "self-proclaimed" at the beginning of the article?

    Good point. There is some subtle racism in this article (in these videos). It's become politically correct to pick on "white trash".
