Does an old Pick-Up with a gunrack in the back glass, dipping, and a country accent equal stupid?

Vote with your dark heart exposed. Don't get all peace, love, and happiness because you feel bad you judge people. Just vote the way that is truthful and not the way you wish you are.

no, in fact what seems to me "stupid" are people who would ask the question, "pickup, gunrack, dipping, country accent= stupid". Surely you don't use such a broad brush to paint people.

I'd have to let somebody open there mouth first, then you can judge stupid.

does somebody who texts while driving an audi, all the while managing to drink their $5 starbucks and navigating their way from suburb to suburb equate stupid?

perhaps your poll is a bit off.

I grew up on a farm. I drove a farm truck and dipped and chewed. I shot my shotgun the other night just because I wanted to. I love muddin too. I have been judged for my accent on numerous occasions. I just wanted to know how everybody else feels. It seems that by some of the comments on here about locals, and scary rednecks in trucks, and stuff like that there seems to be judgment towards that way of life.

In fact about every time I am at the crag I get the question. Where are you from. (I know that is asked regularly, but not with the sneer I get occasionally). Then when I say right here in Kentucky I have had, "I thought so" as a response.

I've met stupid people in all areas of life and smart people in all areas of life. Also "stupid" and "intelligent" are both constructs made up by people, so there are many definitions, and none represent truth, just opinions. For instance, I think people who work 50+ work weeks and spend all of their time with computers, ipods, cell phones, Blackberry's, tv's, etc...are stupid, but many people would look at that person's fabulous bank account and all of their neat gadgets and deem tham as intelligent.

In the end, people should just live their lives and stop evaluating everyone else. Why should anyone care if I think they are stupid? It really has no bearing on anything.
Hauling a big ego up a route adds at least a full grade.

Whatahutch, there is prejudice deeply rooted in our culture and in people's general state of mind. You know that already. You don't need to make some silly poll like this to prove it for you. And I don't know if it gets to you, but if it does then I recommend deciding to not let it affect you at all.

On a grander scale, New Yorkers and Los Angelinos consider everything between New York and Los Angeles to be "fly-over country", populated by idiots with a variety of accents.

love country folk... hate rednecks.

the real equivalence is --poor = stupid--. 'country' (like 'ghetto') is just a euphemism.

but i'm super-poor so what do i know?
