Thanks all, I like (wo xi huan) this definition, xiang xia ren, because I
already know ���ren��� (zhong guo ren, meiguo ren, dan mai ren etc). Typically
darker skin (a red neck) because of exposure to the sun in the fields. Yes, here
in USA rednecks are a big joke, they have a goofy dialect (Goofy the cartoon
character ��� the redneck friend of the clever Mickey Mouse), they know how to
kick back and relax, go fishing. Personal hygiene is not a priority, including
brushing teeth. Andrew, if you are a redneck, you don���t need to know how to ask

Cheng li ren, like that too, Cheng (town) li (in) ren (people),
city-people, typically pale from lack of sunlight, or vanity, typically wear
modern clothes, likes fine culture and art. Everything has to be Fei Chang
I���m not from USA either, I come from the happiest country in the world,

have found a good balance between the extreme redneck (hen xing xia ren) and
extreme city-people (hen cheng li ren). Went to the state fair 4 times and now
have a redneck imbalance (too much fried food) the yang quality?

Are you planning to be able to identify some Chinese redneck here
or in China?
BTW, correct me if I say, in usa the trend is others think
redneck is a joke, redneck think back they are joke. In China, townspeople
think rural people is a joke, and rural say nothing but just work hard to be
