3 Call them "rednecks"

Some of them would like it, because the term "Redneck" comes from the coal-miners Labor Union movement.
At the big political rallies of the day, those in favor of forming a coal-mine worker's Labor Union wore red bandanas around their necks, so that they were readily visible in the crowd.

Anyone reading this from the Southern United States: I found this while searching for...well, never mind. It is in NO WAY intended to offend, in fact it's quite sweet.
