Is there no respect for cultural and racial diversity in the schools
in your area? These students would be prohibited from wearing this
shirt in my school and the class advisor who permitted its printing
and distribution would be called on the carpet. If the assumption
that this is acceptable in the school is universal, I think there is a
much deeper problem than a group of linguists can solve. And it
stinks out loud.
I think the term "redneck" does not mean what it used to. The term is
somewhat self-deprecatingly applied, and has become more the opposite
of "city slicker." There may be no racial overtones.
