Much more likely is that the term "red-neck" arose from the red necks of
hardscrabble farmers who eked out a meager existence by remaining long
hours in their fields.  The term certainly is not restricted to the South:
the term is current on the US West Coast and in the northern Atlantic
States in rural areas.
