Default Top Gear versus Rednecks


Just seen this episode on TV, though it first aired a few months ago. Up until now I've only heard of it, but this is an impressive display of extreme rednecks. I understand a lot of America, or even these States are not like this, but man, they wound up in a bad side of town.

I laughed so hard!

In Texas... we might not go that far... But you'd get an ear full. (we've had to become "tolerant" because of the recent migrations to Texas from the north for several corporation friendly business practices.)

Well good for Alabama! If you don't have that type of attitude, you end up with lawyers who can't get a clerk's job because they can't speak French.

Sorry, I've been turned into a racist. When I have 9 years experience and someone has no experience yet they get the job because they're a woman, minority, or disabled (basicly anyone but a white male), I get a little redneck racist attitude myself. Working for the government will do that to you.

Hating rednecks isn't racist, it's not a race. I have never had a bad run-in with a true redneck, so I can't really speak for them. I still find that video hilarious though.

People everywhere are the same... It doesn't have anything to do with race, culture, language or anything. I think it's genetic - as long as you're a human being, you hate your government.
