White alone - 19,929 (57.7%)

==========
First the minority is not just black I would think Rednecks are also a minority compared to people that do not label themselves that. If you check we have Hispanics. American Indians, Asian etc.
Reads the fine print then you can call yourself a H.S. grad.
All white alone - 19,929

All other nationalities - 14,617

You're wrong again - keep trying though, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in awhile.

"Corporations and popular culture are one and the same, in many cases."
==========
First there are many cultures in Tupelo from the poor black to the middle class black to gays and each church has different flavors. Marketing and corporate cultures are similar but each has a different agenda. Non profit corporations are for the perks and power they get. Profit corporations take advantage of wage labor to enhance the investors and management.

The media controls much of the mask of popular culture such as fashion and peer pressure by making things emotional and making sure people cannot learn how to use sapience over sentience.

"Maybe next time you'll think twice about posting useless and false information on here, eh?"
==========
I doubt that the marjority of whites in Tupelo are a majority I know no one in CDF or Create and the Daily Journal want redneck next to their name. I would suspect that you are the redneck as you proclaim simple understanding of the reason for the problems in Tupelo and why even one person would shoot an elephant. What we have are poorly educated public school wage earners that have not been creative enough to divert frustration to winning goals. The south rather fight for an imaginary honor and stay poor both in the pocket and intellectually.

I am a leader not a follower. I suspect they are out for profit rather than informing the public. The government census data is different.

R. Bros should have done the
right thing yrs ago and let those
animals go to a sanctuary and live
out their lives.

They are an endangered species and
a wonderful, smart and majestic animal
that shouldn't be exploited for the
amusement of ppl.

So tell me there Einstien - what is the typical demographic and racial makeup, in percentages, of the term "redneck?" Please provide a citation to back up your statement as well.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Redneck is a subjective term that means different things to different people. Is Foxworthy a redneck?

How about Fred Sanford?

Here, I'll help you - but just this once:

Redneck is a derogatory slang term used in reference to poor, uneducated white farmers, especially from the southern United States. It is similar in meaning to cracker (especially regarding Georgia and Florida), hillbilly (especially regarding Appalachia and the Ozarks), and white trash (but without the last term's suggestions of immorality).

It does not include blacks.

"It does not include blacks."
==========
Subjective, In Michigan where soda is pop they have redneck blacks. You even have them in Africa.
Slang comes in many forms. Perhaps the German gang members in Wisconsin take offense to black rednecks.
