Redneck Revolt is a good group organizing in these areas around this identity and history. Yeah regions where mining, agriculture, and similar industries are dominant tend to have a history of socialist organizing and labor agitation, funny how that works i love how many people are commenting on this basically saying it’s an oxymoron for rednecks to be communists like… in what universe is it an oxymoron for… actual poor and working-class people… to be invested in an ideology movement that centers around working-class/labor struggle… lmao ???? literally the only reason why there has been a shift in later years is cus of fear mongering to the point where capitalist criticism has become a taboo even for lower class poor people. like many the southern states are some of the poorest states in usa?? “Let’s show these fascists what a couple of hillbillies can do!”  -Woody Guthrie coming from  a non-informed point of view i feel like once again this is Reagan’s fault because he targeted workers unions a good deal…  People are saying its a oxymoron because “redneck” is usually synonymous with “racist/stupid af” in america. And “racist/stupid af” in america tends to steer very far right. But there is a actually a whole population of “redneck” that isnt racist at all. They’re actually pretty well educated, theyre just poor and do poor people stuff. They’re the ones who end up introducing black people to white people shit. Like moonshine, mudding and camping. Theyre a trip to hang around. Theres actually a lot of overlap in the “redneck” and the “hood” culture (large tight knit families, general disdain for authorities, love of bbq…etc), but the rich white people in power dont want people to know that because if the all the poor people reguardless of color realize they have shared interests band together and raise hell. Its over for the 1%. So they try their hardest to emphasize and exaggerate the cultural differences, in hopes of convincing the low income disenfranchized whites to vote right. I LOVE capitalist critical Appalachian culture. One of the first things i learned that fueled my interest was the origin of the word ‘redneck.’ Coal mining was HUGE from the mid 1700s to the early 1900s in states like Virginia and Pennsylvania as coal was a primary source of fuel for a lotta shit. Unsurprisingly, mine owners were capitalist pigs and exploited the hell outta coal miners. Like, paying them by the pound of coal they brought in rather than by hours worked, paying them in vouchers that could only be used at the store owned by the mining company, and offering no kind of health assistance when workers would inevitably succumb to illness and injury caused by the work they did. So miners began to unionize in the mid 1840s. To show solidarity and to make their employers take notice, unionists would wear red bandanas around their necks. And thus, the term ‘redneck’ was coined to describe the union supporters who eventually dismantled a lot of the exploitive practices used by the coal industry. Love these! Just discovered the hillbilly leftie podcast the Trillbilly Worker’s Party, and I am so excited to see more leftist organizing in these parts. We have an amazing history of labor struggle, and a fair amount of labor wins, in this region. : Bout near tarred a you, boy! kentuckwitch: missmeanest: hubbabubba-overlord: discoursegrips: cistrendered: democratic-bias: electoralcollege: trashgender-garbabe-nova: ladygolem: probablyasocialecologist: https://twitter.com/baldinternetman/status/793470278953238528  Funny enough, there’s a long history of worker’s struggle in the Appalachians and South.

Sharks are innocent: Human Sea Sea Lion o 2005 Howstuffworns Surfer Turtle mary-margaret-musical-mess gxrardweigh splendid-oxymoron: ayellowbirds thefingerfuckingfemalefury averyangryfeminist jaythedukeofduwang the-little-plurmaid oceans-seas The reason why sharks attack surfers. Please follow Oceans & Seas http://oceans.press Duh. Ever notice shark attacks are only one bite because sharks have a taste oh human and are like "blegh this isn't what I ordered>o Sharks also have really really really bad vision.. .so everyone- be nice to sharks I remember I did a report on hammerhead sharks and theyre truly just dopey idiots that'il just bite you and be like wow fuck that and just piss off lol Unless theyre reeeaallyyyy hungry Sharks are so cool Sharks are so vital to our oceans, the ecosystem, and the health of the world. Please be kind to sharks SHARK APPRECIATION POST Sharks are important okay and also super cute and they just wanna swim around doing shark stuff They do not want to eat humans they are not scary evil monsters, they are cute as heck sea animals which the ocean needs Stop hurting/killing sharks :( Sharks also, sadly, have only one appendage that is any good at manipulating objects their mouth. Thus, if they are curious about something. they do the same thing every thirteen-months-old child does, and investigate it by nomming it In other words, I believe the solution to prevent most shark attacks is to give sharks arms. #amthesharks2k15 arm the sharks #armthesharks2k15 Source oceans-seas 296,737 notes Sharks are innocent
