I did a newsgroup search for "redneck" and came up with 10 groups, all of
them completely dead. Even spammers are barely hitting them. I know they're
out there somewhere....
Some other links:
Click once on the navigation on this one:
This one's for jojo:
According to http://www.whitetrashwarehouse.com "redneck" is merely a
specialization of "white trash."
There are plenty of web pages with information on white trash. One that
has an architectural emphasis is bttp://www.drbukk.com/gmhom/park.html .
hehe I enjoyed that, but I was looking for a newsgroup for rednecks. You're
in those hills near Oak Ridge aren't you? Do you get a lot of rednecks up
there? ; )
Did you hear that they are evicting a bunch of people from a trailer park
near *Square One*?
Look no further than yur own surname, Bulatovic'. Many Serbs and
Montenegrins with your surname were born and raised and still exist in
primitive villages not as evolved as yer basic American redneck territory..
Maybe you're related? Google Miodrag Bulatovic, Kosta Bulatovic, Branko
Bulatovic, Pavle Bulatovic - good, bad, ugly and even esteemed.
Oh. I think I see your point. My father's ancestors were probably rednecks
of a sort. ( I haven't met one.) Of that I have little doubt, but it doesn't
make me too uncomfortable. I'm equally certain that some of my ancestors
were chimps, and I don't identify with either group. My heart belongs to the
mighty Lower Don, and the Leafs of course. (Go Sens!)
even a local group: http://www.slavicmalechorus.org /
hmm, Rostov na Donu, where to find a weblink?.....heh...webcam...yes
eh, somebody almost got it. Actually, I do a lot of Russian music but I
was referring to Cossack music. Whether Cossacks are RUssians is a
matter of opinion. Certainly, they have always been multiethnic since
they were considered as Cossacks.
I'm related to a fami8ly that is literally like that, and by this
century it is also interracial, making it ever more interesting.
Actually, I pulled all the posts because I do know that mostly all
Bulatovici are related, so you are responding to something that was only
up for a couple minutes. I had thought, well, that's kind of personal,
so I pulled the posts.
I posted what I did and negatively reacted because I don't generally
like to make fun of people and cultures if I am not a part of them.
Sometimes you have to take a close look instead of engage in a
dismissive jocular generalization.
ex.What's it like to be a part of an antique American culture where the
men grow one fingermail about 8-12" long because it is emblemmatic of
having to work for a living with one's hands, even if all the men in
that specific cultural grou work with their hands? In the specific
subset of redneck culture to which I refer, men and women do intricate
English country dancing from a few centuries ago that has otherwise
disappeared. Sometimes there are unique cultural aspects worthy of
preservation within cultural groups easy to generalize. Takes a keen eye.
How do you "pull a post"? Do you mean on the Google Groups interface? I
thought that once it's posted it's posted.
So you regret it? That's an interesting imperative you declare. When does a
grouping become a culture that is worthy of that kind of respect?
How long does that take, etc.? Cultures come and cultures go. I can't think
of one that doesn't have blood on it's hands. They certainly aren't sacred.
Finally, there's the presumption that you can't make fun of another group.
It's PC, but that one I don't buy. Those outside the group are the *first*
to recognize it's foibles. Everybody could be seen as part of such a group,
so we should all keep our sense of humor handy. Our situation is absurd.
Do you mean *not* working with your hands?
I'm having trouble putting theses pieces together. Can you elaborate?
With 'sometimes' at the front of that sentence I have no issue with it,
since it permits one to argue, depending on the specifics and one's
objective, for their eradication. (Aspects, not groups.)
Cancel a past through an nntp reader. I use Thunderbird, which is free
and an nntp service.
Why does a culture have to be sacred to be worthy of preservation. I
can't think of any culture without some cultural artifact or person
unworthy of of its preservation. I'm in favor of helpng languages live
instead of be eclipsed and die, traditional arts being taught to even
one more generation, dances being learned and enjoyed, etc. I don't
think that cultures need be genetic.
Absurdity is a part of the human condition. So is its opposite.
No, I mean not defining the work one does as necessarily by one's hands,
and as not necessarily rough enough to not allow one fingernail to grow
There is a real living so-called redneck culture in which all men in it
grow one fingernail super long, most of the men do pre-18thc. English
country dancing. the first aspect of this little culture could be
expected, as just another one of those strange readneck things, the
second aspect not so expected.
in otherwise apparently low value cultural groups.
evidently the last half of the sentence disappeared
Didn't know you could do that.
So if I were to use another reader and go to the group, that message would
no longer be on the server?
Sacred is just hyperbole. I've got nothing against languages and arts, but I
do with ignorance and hatred. If those are defining components of a
'culture' or 'way of life', then I have no problem if it were to perish.
IOW, they're not all worth saving, especially the ones that are trying to
destroy yours. If it's going to be a zero-sum, I'll take the sum.
