The term "redneck" originates from the tendency of poor farmers in the 1800s having sunburned necks from working long hours in the sun. It has become a derogatory term for a class of people that are considered to be "uncultured", uneducated, and often racist. A similar term is "hillbilly", and a slightly related term is "white trash", though the latter term has implications of immorality and doesn't necessarily indicate a rural upbringing. It is often used to refer to poor white farming communities in the southern states of the USA, but has been used in other countries including Scotland.

In the 1800s and early 1900s the term "redneck" was used in politics to refer to a political faction comprising poor white farmers in the south of the US. Members of this faction eventually began to proudly refer to themselves as rednecks.

In the early 1900s coal miner union members wore red ban bandanas and where often termed rednecks.
