"Redneck" Popularity

Well, the title say's it all. Being a so called 'redneck' is a popular thing to be in today's world, isn't it? I don't understand why... I mean, on popular hunting/fishing networks ya can't help but read 'Redneck for life', 'Fell in love with a Redneck', 'Proud to be a Redneck' and Redneck, Redneck, Redneck.
I find that it is a popular, and rewarding thing to have this on profile names, titles, status changes etc but why? Who really, in their right mind wants to be a redneck?

1. an uneducated white farm laborer, esp. from the South.
2. a bigot or reactionary, esp. from the rural working class.

To me, this is the last thing I'd want to be, but I guess it doesn't help when ya have icons like Jeff Foxworthy, and Larry the Cable Guy boasting this, and promoting it. I mean, it's funny to some degree but if I were to class myself as anything I'd want to be a good ol' country boy, or an outdoorsman(woman). I guess I get a kick out of this, and laugh outloud to myself on a regular basis because it has become so popular.
It is amazing how easily people are influenced into thinking that being a Redneck is cool and the person to be when they really have no idea what they are. I chew Copenhagen, I listen to country music, hunt, fish and wear camo almost daily I even drink the cheapest beer that is available at times but I sure as heck won't be a Redneck anytime soon and by these examples I just I gave I suppose I would be a Redneck.
This is just a little rant, because I get tired of seeing all this Redneck crap all over the place and my laughs are getting played out. Get real folks, Rednecks aren't the 'class' of people ya really want to be.
