Southern Nationalists have made Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” an unofficial Southern, national anthem. With strong support for Alabama Governor George Wallace (“in Birmingham they luv the Gov-nor”), “back at ya” taunts to Neil Young who once, dared to lectured “Southern Man” about “CHANGE” and lots and lots of deep professions of love for the Southland, yeah – it’s a great, populist Southern anthem. Today, I would like to share another 70s song about the South – Randy Newman’s “Rednecks”. The song is strongly pro White South and was/is very politically incorrect. Playing “Rednecks” in any American college dorm room these days would surely get a White student suspended or expelled, beaten or killed – that’s how great a song it is!
The theme is is the second anti Southern Reconstruction of the 1960s early 70s. Hunter Wallace will appreciate the song’s viewpoint:
Arrogant, hypocritical White Northern people are lecturing Southern Whites that the South is racist, backward and stupid. While the reality is that Blacks in the North are enslaved in worse all Black Northern slums.
The song’s chorus is quite catchy – “yeah, we’re stupid Rednecks, but we’re keeping the Niggers down and we don’t apologize to arrogant, hypocritical Northerners for anything. Here’s the chorus:
We’re rednecks, rednecks
And we don’t know our ass from a hole in the ground
We’re rednecks, we’re rednecks
And we’re keeping the niggers down
There are certainly Jewish themes with this artist and in this song, which we can discuss in an intelligent fashion in the comments section. But for now, please enjoy this very politically incorrect, pro Southern song – one of the best ever.
