I love a good stereotype joke as much as the rest, especially when it's about Kiwis, but I found this read really interesting:

Quote:
by the 1910s, the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) was fighting for pay equality, and requiring an oath from every member not to discriminate against any fellow member by “creed, or color, or nationality”.

Its first paid organizer in West Virginia was a black man.
...
“I call it a darn solid mass of different colors and tribes, blended together, woven together, bound, interlocked, tongued and grooved together in one body.”


Absolutely no comment on the joke - I was just dumbfounded how little I knew about the term 'redneck' and I love when long held assumptions are completely turned upside down.
cheers
