Not a redneck

I went to pick up my friends child today from his school and before the children were dismissed from school announcements were made over the loud speaker. I must say, the announcements were made with the most offensive, uneducated, "redneck" accent that the person could muster. People like this that educate our children just carry on the stereotype that southerners are uneducated and stupid.
sounds horrible

I have never been to Northeast Elementary but what you described sounds horrible. It's like that all over this town. They teach the kids this stupid and lazy way of speaking and it goes from one generation to the next.

The locals see nothing wrong with it and normal people say it's out fault because we aren't from here and call everyone outsiders and northerners, even if you are from way more south than Tennessee.

Rednecks suck!

I am from here in Cookeville, but I have been luck enough to travel the world. I do have a accent, but I have worked on it so I would not sound so ignorant. Schools are suppose to educate not spread ignorance.

If you have a problem with folks with a redneck accent...your best option is to MOVE. You will deal with that accent just about wherever you go around this area. How could an accent be uneducated? You mentioned stereotypes...People like you carry on the stereotype of azzholes!

I will NOT deal with that accent, I will NOT move just because you fear an educated individual.

It's not a stereotype, it is REALITY. If these kids speak like this and ever leave Tennessee - I assure you that they will want to HIDE the redneck accent that you instilled in them.

I'm sorry, didn't realize you were an educated azzhole. Good luck to you and your mission of removing the "redneck accent" from the south. I'll check back later to see your progress.

There are many Cookeville and Upper Cumberland natives that have made a far greater mark on the world than most of you ever will. They probaby grew up with an accent and may still have it--has nothing to do with their intelligence, will power, work ethic or manners. The fact that you are so rude about your opinion of local accents indicates that you may need to pay more attention to the positive attributes of locals (such as kindness, friendliness and manners) and less to inconsequential topics such as their accents.

I would make sure I knew some basic gramar skilz before I accused someone of being ignorant in the school. I would also refrain from replying to myself, that might get confused as ignorance. But hey, Im just a uneducated southern redneck.

It surely does have to do with the shabby education that people got here. I doubt that anyone from Cookeville went out and made some huge mark on the world. The work ethic here is mostly general laziness, and as far as manners go, half of you don't even know how to say please, excuse me, or thank you.

The friendliness doesn't last long, and I do believe it is hard as hell to understand what some redneck with a mouthful of chew is trying to mutter to you.

I'm rude because I learned that is the way it is done here. Thank your local yokels for teaching me how to blend in and use common phrases like: Hangin in thur like a hair in a biscuit, by gawd, and Git er done. I also have learned not to say good bye after any telephone call and just hang up on people too. Yes, you people just reek of class and rotting teeth.

Well I was born and raised here and Im PROUD of where I come from. Seems to me that there is something around here that everyone likes because everyone is moving here!! So looks to me that all the ones that are whining and crying will just have to get over it and deal with it, cause if you hated it here that much than Im sure it wouldnt be a problem for you to pack your stupid azzes out! We didnt ask any of you to come here but we will tell you that if you dont like it...DONT LET THE DOOR HIT YOU IN THE AZZ ON THE WAY OUT!!

Go back under the rock. Come back out when you get a clue. Better yet, go to your neighbor's house and tell him your story. He will take you and the rock you came out from under.....and send you off to Michigan where you seem to belong. You can hang out with all the educated folk without the accent up there. Just let us handle it down here.

I would not consider any of these people as famous. The sports people got where they are with scholarships mostly, and most of them are not even natives of this area. Who would really want to admit they were from Cookeville, TN? lol.

And, who the hell is Donald Farmer, and what the hell did he supposedly produce and direct?

Looney Looper is probably the most famous for being a loon and a killer.
