    @Jack Pschitt; If you're referring to culture in the cultured or high culture sense, then I'm sure there are lots of people who'd say no.

    I'm referring to culture in terms of shared values, customs, language, etc. Why do I feel the need to smile at someone when I lock eyes with them, and if they don't smile back, I'm inclined to view them as grumpy or rude? That's cultural.

    Well, sure, we have history, but... people here are like an amalgm of every other culture. I try to ignore the commercial, industrial things like fast food or T-shirts.

    Whenever I think about this, I always go back to Southern culture. Bluegrass music, barbeque, Southern accents, I think the South is the closest thing we have to a unique culture.

    Obviously this isn't including the natives, but that's not me.
    @Luminosity; As for you, the post above is a retarded mess of thoughts, but that's basically what I'm talking about. I think the South has the closest thing we have to a national identity or culture.

    Yeah I could see that, no other country has anything too similar to the typical redneck. We all have lower class subcultures, but redneck is it's own culture, they have their own values and beliefs that aren't shared as thoroughly outside of the culture.

    I live around self-professed "Rednecks." Despite what people say, they're good people, and honestly I'd rather spend time hanging out outdoors and driving ATVs with them than at a party with high-class individuals :P

    I've grown up not necessarily surrounded by typical Southerners, but close to them both in my family and my community almost all my Iife. I like to say that Florida is so down south that it's not "down south". I wouldn't call myself a Southerner, but lots of my family is from the South, mainly Texas.

    Same haha, about half my family is from Alabama. Virginia isn't that Southern (especially northeast VA), but I live around farms and orchards tended by people with southern accents so I think that qualifies :P

    I like Southern culture. You know, its DIY attitude, while at the same time putting focus on the family and the community. I don't have the friendliness or warm personality to live the normal Southern life, but I like the South. I just like thinking that we actually have some semblence of a culture here.

    Plus Southern food is the best.

    @Jack Pschitt; I didn't find your post to be a retarded mess of thoughts; I see what you're getting at. I think there's a lot of things that Americans view as so normal that we wouldn't identify them as culture unless someone not from the U.S. pointed them out as interesting or annoying. I see American culture as this interesting mixture of things borrowed from other cultures and things that developed as the country grew.

    I think there is an unfairly negative perception of rednecks. No culture is perfect of course, but I think they are too often the butt of a lot of jokes.

    And I wanna ride ATVs :3

    Riding ATVs is fun :D as long as you don't go too fast on gravel roads or drive haphazardly offroad :P

    I think so too! Everyone thinks so poorly of the people who live out in the sticks here, which includes me, so naturally I would take offense to that :p

    Yeah, maybe that's true. I've also been thinking that maybe we haven't had time to develop a full-fledged unique culture.

    I think there is an unfairly negative perception of rednecks. No culture is perfect of course, but I think they are too often the butt of a lot of jokes.
    Oh, god, yes, this. The country bumpkin is just a stereotype like the English snob and the Asian who sucks at driving.
